Dear Diary

Keep your journal on your USB drive with this portable program.

Journaling is a great idea, whether you're keeping track of your daily goings-on at work or recording your most intimate thoughts. My Daily Digital Journal is a portable program that makes keeping a journal fun, easy, and secure. We can imagine anyone from tweens to executives using this program.

The journal's interface is plain and intuitive, resembling a mini word processor. There's a formatting toolbar across the top, and the program comes with a full complement of formatting features. You can change the font style and color, set the background color, and create bulleted lists. You can also insert emoticons and images, and we especially liked the easy-to-access special character menu. With a search feature you can search for specific text anywhere in your journal, and a calendar view displays entries day by day. You can optionally set a password, and since the program is portable, it can easily go on a USB drive and travel wherever you do. There's no Help file, but the program did come with a read-me file that explained the basics. Overall, we liked My Daily Digital Journal quite a bit. There's nothing about it that really set it apart from similar programs we've seen, but we don't have any complaints about it, either. We think it's a great choice for people looking for an easy way to start keeping daily records of their lives.

My Daily Digital Journal comes as a ZIP file. It's accessible after extraction with no need for installation.
