i prefer functional over pretty.

this was bought for one purpose and now I use it for loads of things.

it has:

to do lists
account details
credit card details
logbooks
checklists
diary
notes

It backs up to a csv file on your machine so you can access the data.

it may not be pretty but I don't think it looks THAT bad.

Fine, but the OP asked for a diary-type app, moleskinery is exactly that, works well and looks slick.

bbotte,

About idb... FYI: I have found its two types of diaries very helpful. One, the "diary", autostamps the date per entry which, of course, is pretty much expected. The other, "Log", also stamps the time. I now keep multiple subject/client/hobby-specific journals between the two, depending on whether or not I believe the additional timestamp would be helpful for future reference.

Raconteur for iPhone

Hey all,

I also wanted a decent journal / diary app for iPhone, and since I couldn't find what I wanted, I wrote one.

The app I came up with is called Raconteur: http://teaapps.com/raconteur. I just released it a couple days ago and I'm trying to get the word out / solicit some feedback. Let me know what it needs! Thanks.

I couldn't find moleskinery in the app store. I did see a "noteskinery". Perhaps the company received a cease-and-desist order and had to rename their app?

Noteskinnery is the updated version of moleskinnery. Not sure why they changed the name. The app looks great but it takes about 8 clicks to create a new note. If you're putting it in a folder it takes like 13 clicks.

Is there any diary app that backs up to Google Docs? I really want a diary app, but I want there to be an online back-up option, preferably one that works with Google docs.

I use Diary Pro (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/diary...314210959?mt=8)

Its not bad.

One good thing about this app is that you can store pics and voice memos as part of the diary description.

First version was horrible but since they updated, its been working pretty well.

I've been using Notebook by Appigo as a diary for almost a year now. In fact I started using it as a diary last February 1. what I like most is that not only can I add information through the iPhone, but I can also add it through the Toodledo website since it syncs with the Notes component on Toodledo.

It works in landscape and portrait modes and has bolded text and bullets and timestamps. For me, it's the best diary app out there at the moment.

I tried iDiary and like a lot of the features in it. For me, Notebook wins out mainly for the sync ability with Toodledo and through Toodledo I can create and edit my diary on a regular PC or Mac as well as through the iPhone.

I'm loving Momento. It's ability to pull posts from the various social sites, plus have free input us great. Don't miss not haing landscape as I never type that way. I'm a one handed text writer, something that's easy in portrait but impossible in landscape.

diary apps

I use an app called Moe's Notes. It lets you record entries in audio, image/video, or text notes. I especially like the ability to add tags to my notes, which means I can track multiple projects at the same time. So I have a diary (which I tag as "personal") plus my work and creative projects that I tag separately (eg "to do," "screenplay," "family" etc. More about it here: http://www.moeskitchen.com/MoesNotes/

MacJournal for iPhone

MacJournal just released an iPhone app but it definitely needs a bit of work in that it only supports plain text and no image files and though I haven't had problems with sync some have. Check out their site for more details.

5 bucks for a barebones app sounds a bit high. waiting for a surely-to-come better 2.0 app. can't wait to sync with ease with the mac macjournal app
