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.

    "Practical and Secure Program"

    May 04, 2014   |   By jflemingbishop

    Version: Efficient Diary 3.55 Build 350

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

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