Free journal software

January 2nd, 2010

As I have shared before I keep a daily journal. In it I record my thoughts, daily happenings, prayer needs and my Bible/devotional reflections. I usually record this in a paper journal.

This year I thought I would try something different so I did a Google search for free journal software. I came across a free program called iDailyDiary which looks pretty good so far. Here’s the blurb from the website…

iDailyDiary Free Version

iDailyDiary provides a simple interface that immediately gets you started taking daily notes, creating a journal, putting your thoughts into writing and much more.

The iDailyDiary editor is “richtext” with the ability to insert graphics, URL’s, Hypertext links and links to other diary pages. iDailyDiary is fully searchable so you can always track down those important dates and reminders.
