Journey is an award-winning diary app that helps you record and protect your private thoughts and reflections. Backing up a minimal, intuitive interface with a reliable set of security features, it helps you feel safe about putting your life on the page. It also syncs with Google Drive to ensure that you never lose an entry. You’ll want to take this journal with you everywhere, and you can — its mobile version is just as easy to use on your iOS devices as the main app is on your Mac.
Sounds good? Well, it looks good, too.
Journey key features
The app brings journaling into the 21st century with a feature-packed text editor. Entries can include text, photos, embedded videos, audio recordings to give them more depth and detail. Built-in Markdown editing makes it easy to organize and format the layout of each entry while also optimizing your work for publication online, should you choose to share it.
Your digital journal logs supplemental information to make it easier to find past entries. You can search your whole journal by location, saved on a master map, or view your history as a timeline or as a calendar. The larger your journal grows, the more you’ll rely on these tools to find exactly the moment you’re looking for.
Back up, go anywhere
The app syncs with your Google Drive account to save your entries. With each entry backed up to Drive’s cloud, you’ll never have to worry about losing your journal, even in case of hardware damage to your Mac. You can write and review your past notes on the go from any iOS or Android device, so you’ll never be tied to your desktop.
The app provides impressive security features to protect your privacy. It supports both fingerprint- and password-based protection, so you can write with confidence about your innermost thoughts.
If you’d rather share your thoughts with your friends, collaborators, or followers, the app has you covered. You can text, email, export, or publish an entry to your social media accounts right from the app window. And the Markdown text editor helps you give web-ready formatting for your writing.
Keeping a journal can benefit your mental health, writing skills, and overall organization. The app helps you build up a regular writing practice with options for scheduling reminders and alerts. Plus, its minimal interface reduces distractions and helps you focus on reaching your daily writing goals.
