Editors' review

When you were a kid, did you have one of those little diaries with a lock and key? They weren't fancy, but there was something enjoyable about recording a day's events in those little books and then locking them up. Easy Diary is the electronic equivalent of those little books, a basic diary program that allows users to record their daily events and thoughts. Although the program is not particularly rich in features, it's not bad for a very basic diary.

The program's interface is quite plain; it shows a two-month calendar, and below that, a text box. Clicking a day on the calendar will show that day's entry in the text box; to create a new entry, users simply click in the box and start typing. Users can customize the background and font in this area to make the diary more personal. The entire diary is searchable, making it easy to find entries on a given topic. The program has very few extra features. Users can create backup files to export and import as needed, and the diary can be password protected. Multiple users can be created if desired. And that's really all there is to it. The program has no Help file, although the features are so basic that it doesn't really matter. The whole program is very intuitive and easy to use, and what it lacks in features it makes up for in simplicity.

Easy Diary is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users needing a very basic diary program.

    "Does not save properly"

    June 09, 2012   |   By dont_post_to_fb

    Version: Easy Diary 1.4

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Clean
    Been using for over two years now

    Cons

    Buggy software that will after a while save your entries to January 1 2010 no matter what date you are on.
    I can't replicate when it saves to this date, I just know that sometimes it happens and I lose things that I want to write down. This is unacceptable and the developer should feel ashamed.

    Also unsafe. Once logged in anyone can export an ascii translatable version of your entire diary in 5 seconds.

    Summary

    Does not save properly.
    No way to save manually.

    "installs like a breeze!"

    April 15, 2011   |   By najidal

    Version: Easy Diary 1.4

    Pros

    installed with no problem or any fuss under Windows 7, 64bit.
    very simple, very easy to use, it got all what I need to write my daily stuff, I already started to copy my data to this tiny little marvelous program.

    Cons

    can't do search within the page of a single day, while it's capable of searching the whole data and lists the dates of days of what you are looking for, but then you have to look yourself in those pages, since there are no highlighted words in it.

    Summary

    ease of installing and use, very simple yet adequate.
