App Store Description

Featured in AppsGoneFree! Your daily free app resource.

Maxjournal is a simple and elegant way to make a daily diary or journal, with extensive photo scrapbooking features. Designed to be easy to use and easy to navigate - it makes it a joy to sit down and get introspective with your diary-writing self. Everything you need is at your fingertips. Create separate journals for any situation – personal, work, travel – or for different users in your household. Each journal has individual settings and password control.

In Maxjournal, you can add up to 30 photos for every journal entry. Photos can be added directly into your text, and positioned and rotated. The text will automatically wrap around your photos with no extra work on your part. Additional photos can be added to your journal sidebar, which is a great place to collect and organize photos that you do not add to your main text.
