It’s like a social network for yourself.
Key points and their purposes:
The app will never have any sharing or social features. => This gives you freedom to be incredibly genuine in your posts without worrying about how others will perceive them. It’s just for you.
Casual, short format. => Traditional journals can be intimidating. There is a subconscious pressure sometimes to write long, elaborate entries with perfect grammar and graceful language. The shorter format alleviates that pressure and feels very familiar to those who use social media.
Importance rating system. => Use the star rating system to rate the importance of the entry. Using this along with the filter system when viewing entries allows you to feel free to write down even the most minor things that happen or whatever is on your mind at the moment, to write down how you felt during major life events, or anything in between.
View filters. => Use tons of filters to see only the memories you want to see.
Data stored in the cloud. => Originally the data was stored locally. I planned on having a backup feature and possibility to sync with other devices. As of version 0.20 the data is all stored in the cloud using Google Firebase’s Firestore infrastructure. This means all you have to do is sign in with your Google account on any device and you will have full access to all of your data. Since it is stored in the cloud you don’t have to worry about backing anything up.
Please remember this app is in beta and it is developed by one person. There will be bugs and issues. Thank you for your patience and feedback.
Last Update May 21, 2018 :
Data now completely in cloud using Google Firebase. (Your old data will not show in the app anymore. It’s in an SQL file in the app data folder if you really need it.)
Details now have a timestamp visible on the Edit Detail page (tap a detail to get there).
v0.21 is a test to fix the issue of freezing on the sign in screen from v0.20. May be unstable.
