Thanks Niv for the hunt! 🙌

JOT is a passion project. A simple journal app that does one thing well: opens up instantly with the keyboard at the ready so you can write down spontaneous thoughts and ideas.

I'm an avid journal user, having logged more than 1,000 posts on my Day One. But when one the go, interesting ideas creep into my head that I want to quickly write down. JOT does away with the "new post" button, and has almost zero load time. Just open up and get writing.

JOT is free on iOS. I'm building JOT in the open, I need you guys to help me decide what features to build next. If all goes well, I'll bring this to android and a Mac app as well.

IDEAS:
- Search
- Categories
- Multiple journals
- Image posts (any one use this?)
- Video posts
- Better editing tools
- Customization (color, font)
- Share to other mediums
- Landscape mode

I'm also adding a way to back up your data, but not yet decided on how. I take privacy very seriously, so am not rushing to implement this. My initial hunch is iCloud sync, but not yet decided.

Really like the app. Also never been asked to enter a password 3 times before :) I did find it difficult trying to find the app in the Appstore when typing JOT. I literally had to search for 'Just Open & Type' In terms of what features to include: - Categories for sure. - Share easily with other channels. - fingerprint ID rather than the 4 digit... Show More
