Hello Product Hunt!

I have been journaling various things like my mood and calories since the past few months. An unorganised notes app is generally the solution since Journaling apps lack the flexibility.

We created Journaly so that users could add self-survey questions, for example ‘How many cups of coffee did I drink today’, ‘What was my mood like’ or ‘Things I ate today’. This allows users to journal immeasurable things like habits and personal interactions.
We are trying to improve active self-tracking with Journaly. Looking forward for your feedback. (We have an introductory 25% off)

Update! We are featured on the Mac App Store 🙌

Also available on for the iPhone on the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1...

@shashwatpradhan Hey Shashwat, the app definitely looks really good on the site. However, have you thought about a freemium type model? Or at least a free trial? Dropping 15 dollars on something I haven't even tried and know I like is a hard proposition for me. A 2 week free trial would be a world of difference in terms of easing into the product and getting comfortable spending money!

@scawtent we are figuring that part out. Currently I tell users to get it, then refund on it if they are not satisfied. (Trial software has lots of piracy to be handled)

@shashwatpradhan Understood! Looks like while thinking about it it rose to 20 dollars in the app store :')

@scawtent the app will be finally $25 after our next major update. You can get it before that 😄

@shashwatpradhan haha true. But dropping $20 bucks on unseen software isn't something I'm comfortable with. Particularly because someone else here mentioned that it was more like a .05 release than a 1.0.

Sorry, and best of luck with the ongoing development!

@scawtent Hi, we just released a demo video so you can take a look at the app more carefully:

We are also on $15 for a few days.
Seems like a lot of work to replicate the journal app DayOne. What do you see as the primary differences?

@dseemakurty hi Dinesh, that's definitely not what we are aiming for. We created Journaly to offer flexibility to users. We let users add there custom self-survey questions for example ‘How many cups of coffee did I drink today’, ‘What was my mood like’ or ‘Things I ate today’.
Being a Quantified Self enthusiast myself, I find it useful to log my mood and food everyday. You can also export your data/back it up on iCloud with Journaly.

@shashwatpradhan @dseemakurty Although I use DayOne myself, as @kkkosariya says below - it would be useful to track and integrate Reporter App-like data. It seems like the main difference between DayOne and Journaly is that Journaly has a sidebar for emoji's and lists, no?

@adrianherritt @dseemakurty @kkkosariya it already does that, you can add custom self-surveys. We also let users export their data file & backup to iCloud.
