Editors' Review


Efficient Diary is an attractive diary application that lets you record and organize diary entries in a variety of ways. The program's sleek design and useful features give it a definite edge over the traditional paper diary or alternatives like password-protected Word documents.

The program's interface is well organized and nice to look at, resembling the familiar Microsoft Outlook, and the built-in Help file is well written and thorough. You can customize your diary entries with a full range of colors, fonts, sizes, and effects. You can also insert images and attach documents to diary entries. You can select a header from a drop-down menu that reflects either your mood or the current weather. Entries can be organized into user-defined groups that are fully searchable, making it easy to find specific items from the past. We like that you can change the program's color scheme, allowing for a bit of personalization, and password protection certainly beats the old locking book cover of days past. Overall, we found Efficient Diary quite easy and pleasurable to use, both when it came to writing entries and managing them. The program isn't particularly heavy on features, but it offers all the important ones, and we can't think of glaring omissions. It's true that it doesn't support audio or video entries, which seem to be growing in popularity, but for a text-based diary, it's a great choice.

Efficient Diary is free. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"A great diary app program."

April 06, 2015  |  By ssteiner86

 |  Version: Efficient Diary 3.55 Build 350


Efficient Diary is very easy to use and very user friendly. It gives you the option to use password protection to keep unwanted people from reading your private diary entries. You can choose from a few different style designs to personalize the way the program looks for you (such as Pink, Black, Summer, Valentines ect..). You can make an unlimited amount of entries and organize them in different ways. And when making an entry it also gives you the option to add the weather for the day which it really good because weather has been known to affect your moods so you can keep track and see for your self if rainy days alter the way you are feeling at all.


The only cons that I can think of are that you are very limited in choosing which style design that you want to use unless you upgrade. And also that when using the weather option in your entries you have to choose the weather for yourself and that it doesn't give you the option to connect to the internet and use the actual current temperature and stuff.

"Practical and Secure Program"

May 04, 2014  |  By jflemingbishop

 |  Version: Efficient Diary 3.55 Build 350


Efficient Diary is great. It is user-friendly, very organized and secure. I love that I can set the password to be re-entered if I minimize the program. I highly recommend this product and have used it every day since I downloaded it.


My only con is that I wish I could categorize my entries into groups without upgrading. However, this program is good enough that I may choose to pay to upgrade anyways.


Thanks for the great software! It was tough to find a good diary/journal program before discovering Efficient Diary.
