Journal official 1.0.0 release 🎉

Last 12 months were intense! I started working on Journal in January 2022. Thanks to all beta tester who helped improve journaling experience! Official release introduces free plan and a paid plan. Free plan is limited to 30 entries (counting from today) and has all the features. Paid plan has unlimited entries.

New features:

  • Prompts. Prompts can help inspire and motivate you to start writing, or simply give you a starting point if you're not sure what to write about.
  • Tags. Tags are labels or keywords that help you describe and organize entries. A tag could be something like “Family”, “100daysofcode”, or an emoji e.g. “😍”.
  • More color themes. Now you can choose from 4 color themes (plus font faces and sizes), so you can easily create a look and feel that suits your personal preferences.
  • Export entries in markdown. You own your data and you can download it any time in text or JSON format. However, all entries are automatically synced with the cloud, so you don’t have to make backups.


  • Rewritten data synchronization engine, which brings better performance and less memory consumption
