Editors' review

Keeping a diary was once something that all educated people were expected to do, but these days diaries are most often seen as small, ornate books with locking covers that are solely the possession of tween girls (and, occasionally, their little brothers). That's a shame, because there are a lot of reasons to keep a diary, both personal and for posterity. Owning a PC makes keeping a diary too easy, especially with excellent free diary programs like iDailyDiary from Splinterware.

The program's main page bears a strong resemblance to a word processor or a full-featured e-mail client such as Outlook, with selectable toolbars for navigation, cutting and pasting, searching, fonts, bullets, and other text effects. A calendar bar runs along the bottom of the page; days with entries are highlighted in colors as a quick visual aid. You can browse through weeks, months, and years of entries, or use handy navigation arrows, and instantly return to today's entry. You can easily insert and remove pictures and hyperlinks from your diary pages. An especially handy feature is the ability to embed links to previous diary entries, so you can instantly go to the relevant page without having to search. You can change themes, too.

As we've noted, iDailyDiary is freeware, which means no excuses for the would-be diarist. There's an upgraded version, iDailyDiary Pro, that's $30; it adds features like a spell checker, thesaurus, sticky notes, and many more themes. If you like the freeware, you'll probably like the pro version's extra features too.

    "Awesome tool for tracking events"

    July 09, 2012   |   By ScottDamery

    Version: iDailyDiary Free 3.85

    Pros

    The greatest is the ability to cut n paste screen captures!
    I love the easy function keys for time date stamps.
    The ability to search etc.
    I also use it on USB for easy travel between work and home.

    Cons

    The ONLY thing to make this perfect is to make it a web application with cloud storage and an offline mode for when connection is not possible.

    Summary

    Great functional tool for exactly what it is a diary or event tracker...perfect for me.
