Editors' review

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.

    "Works fine, foistware is annoying"

    May 16, 2014   |   By dzerkdzerk

    Version: My Daily Digital Journal 2.6

    Pros

    Light, streamlined, simple to use, does what I want it to.

    Cons

    Tries to get you to install multiple unrelated spammy programs - be sure to watch for these during the installation process and click DECLINE.

    Also, even *if* you click decline, it will reset your homepage and browser search bar to trovi.com. Annoying! Fixable, but annoying.

    "Very simple to use."

    July 22, 2012   |   By RoddyHovac

    Version: My Daily Digital Journal 2.4.2.1

    Pros

    Simple, uncomplicated and works on Windows 7.

    Cons

    The first time you use it it will ask your password. You don't have one yet so just click Ok. You can set one up later. If you don't know this ahead of time you waste a lot of time trying to figure out why it won't take your password.

    Very simplistic looking. The emocions are childish looking as well.

    Summary

    If you want something simple and easy this is nice.

    "usable,but cumbersome inserting Photos."

    November 22, 2011   |   By nidaba

    Version: My Daily Digital Journal 2.2

    Pros

    usable,but cumbersome inserting Pictures. Wouldn't insert *.png pictures which I use by default. Had to convert to *.jpg or other supported format.

    Cons

    If you're not good at figuring things out yourself, you may have a hard time.

    Summary

    I'll use this until I find something better. At least it inserts the date an entry was created. I need more time to evalute this further. Maybe I'll remember to come back and update this review.

    Updated on Nov 22, 2011

    I made my first review after only making one entry. I work on several things a day, so I wanted to make another entry for the same day. You can't! You have to add new stuff to the same day you create an entry. I would prefer a new topic for each entry, rather than new topic=new day.

    This program is better than I originally thought. Had to use it for a week to find that out. The global search and calendar functions are the keys to going back years to start your database rather than the, "Previous, today, and Back" buttons. Who wants to click "previous" 4017 times to go back 11 years? Instead use Calendar to go back (132 clicks) set a tag, such as tag database and then search for that from 1/1/2000 to present for whatever tags you have.

    Not every will want to do this but I have3 a specific goal. The past 11 years I've created various text file about many different subjects. It is a waste of time to go through them and find specific information. If I import these text files into MDDJ and set an appropriate tag, then finding specific info will be quicker than my previous method of looking at each text file until I found what I was looking for.
