Editors' Review

+

The developers behind MacJournal admit that you can use a traditional word processor or text editor for journaling--but they say that's like Lance Armstrong using a bike from Wal-Mart to race in the Tour de France. Aside from the fact that Armstrong would probably still kick butt on a Wal-Mart bike, they've got a point: MacJournal is one of the best journaling programs available for the Mac, with a huge range of features that are useful whether you're keeping a journal for yourself, taking notes for classes or meetings, organizing random snippets of info, or prepping blog posts offline.

MacJournal gives you a fairly intuitive, feel-good interface (especially its green-text-on-black, full-screen writing mode), and a ton of tools for organizing your thoughts and words, including a built-in calendar, good search function, a system of nested entries and journals, and keyword tags, labels, priorities, and other opportunities for annotation. You can include nearly any sort of content, from movies to PDFs to podcasts, and bloggers will like that its formatting translates well to HTML, with support for TypePad, Blogger, LiveJournal, and more. You also get password protection and encryption, integration with Apple's Mail, and a wide variety of export options, such as PDF, HTML, Word, and even iPod Notes.

The only major issue we can fault MacJournal for is the 15-day trial period, which is a little short for this sort of application, especially given its rich and complex feature set. This most recent version adds minor interface enhancements and assorted bug fixes.

"nice app, thanks"

August 08, 2012  |  By jovannigeste

 |  Version: MacJournal 6.0

Pros

- easy to use
- offers all features I wanted to have in such type of an app
- integration with blogs

Cons

- haven't found any for now

Summary

I like this app for its ease in use and presence of numerous features. It can take some time to check all of them, but all in all, it is better when app provides you with many features to choose from instead of one or two.

"The upgrade is poor."

February 06, 2012  |  By catharinebramkamp

 |  Version: MacJournal 6.0

Pros

I used and loved this program for three years until the latest upgrade. Find an older version, before the upgrade, and use it, it's quite good. I'm stuck with the new version - not so good.

Cons

With the new upgrade, 6, the program eats information, erases weeks of entries and constantly asks you to make a new journal, when you really just want to add to the old one. I don't understand how any of the new enhancements work, the new version is not intuitive. Not a positive up grade at all. I'm searching for a new journaling program.
From the other reviews (thank you!) I will not wait for any help from Mariner.

Summary

Choose carefully, this used to be a great program, but the upgrade is terrible.
