I have been thinking about the benefits of active self-tracking for a while. Last month I tried logging my mood using emojis with a sentence to explain the cause of it. This helped me understand my mood influencers and to stay in a better state of mind. I did all this with an unorganised notes app & spreadsheet.
The most popular active self-tracking tool used by people are journal apps. Though, I tried many of them. I felt really constrained journalling with them. These journal apps lacked customisability. This led us onto creating Journaly for Mac.
With Journaly, people can customise their journal experience and add self-survey questions. For example ‘How many cups of coffee did I drink today’, ‘What was my mood like’ or ‘Did I exercise’. This allows users to journal immeasurable things like habits, behaviour and personal interactions.
Journaly has every feature you need to have a great journalling experience- iCloud backup, adding media, password protection, exporting your data as a file, daily reminders, search, tags & adding custom survey questions.
Our early adopters are using it as a gratitude journal, personal journal,travel log, food journal, mood log, idea diary and as a health journal. What are you going to use Journaly for? We are looking forward to your feedback!
Journaly is available on the Mac App Store.
