For keeping a journal
Day One is a beautiful journaling app that “offers abilities you didn’t even realize you needed.” It has a range of templates for entries, makes including photos easy, and can be used on both Macbooks and phones.
Universum squeezes in even more features than Day One, but its interface is cluttered. For Android devices only.
Momento is an iOS-only option that’s great for social media enthusiasts. The app can pull data from social media accounts to remind you, for example, which songs you streamed on Spotify on a given day.
Journey works on just about every platform, as well as through its website, Journey.cloud, making it ideal for journalers who want to use whatever device is at hand.
Five Minute Journal is a simple $5 app best for people who struggle to stick with journaling. It asks for just five minutes each day and provides helpful prompts.
