    "Excellent -Better than a Real Diary Kitchen sink incl"

    February 19, 2012  |   By horustwohawks


    Like a real diary, only better
    Accommodates very flexible organization
    Custom formatting, include images and links, etc
    Many different ways to manage information, not only by time, but also with tabs and stickies - allows for complex journalling


    None to speak of


    I am not affiliated with the company or author. I am a computer engineer and have used several types of programs for diary-ing / journalling.
    I have a community that has been invested in iDailyDiary for years - to say we are quite happy with it is an understatement.

    In a particular community interest I am affiliated with, we had requirement to have the students and teachers journalling. The requirement for each individual included managing several disciplines, personally and in groups (group projects, personal projects, discussions, and various discovery scenarios including individual and collective focus.

    We tried a lot of different tools for accommodating individuals to journal daily, and on several levels. At first this included using books. Many chose to use writing apps (like Word, Pages, Claris, etc).
    Of course, I created a forum, and eventually two forums for running two schools, however, even a good forum or blogging platform can fall a bit short for structural complexity requirement in this particular regard.

    Anyway, at length, and after going thru many diary/journalling -like- apps, we stumbled on this one, and it just stuck. It offers so much, and the developer keeps it up pretty nicely.

    I am sorry I do not have time to write a complete review (there are many features to celebrate here). I am writing this out of gratitude to the author for creating such a wonderful product. iDailyDiary is hands down the best, if not only, product in this field that actually addresses the full scope of what a diary is, and needs to be.

    If you are looking for diary/journaling software, its imperative you try this out. iDiary will not disappoint. I have been in the computing/software business for years. We took on iDailyDiary back in, jeez, I'm looking it up now - it was 2005. This software has stood the test of time.

    I cannot believe no one else has written a review worthy of mention here. I could not pass by, see that, and not say something ;^)
