App Store Description

~~~ Pencil Journal - Your Digital Handwriting Diary & Gratitude Journal ~~~
Keeping a journal has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, improve your mood and increase your overall levels of happiness, amongst a host of other benefits. And this is especially true when you handwrite your entries due to the increase in reflective thinking, making this one of the key main benefits of the Pencil Journal app.

Furthermore, to get the most out of journaling it's best to make it a habit that you can stick to - ideally every day - even if only for a short duration each time. However, we never want you to feel like you have nothing to write about, which is why the app includes 50+ journal prompts and 100+ motivational quotes to get you inspired and ready to start writing. That way, whether you have just 2 minutes - or 20 - you will always be able to put pen to pad and start reaping the benefits that journaling has to offer.

Read on to find out more about these two main benefits:

~~~ Handwriting Journal Benefits ~~~
Making a digital journal is convenient and saves on continuously buying new notebooks and pens, but handwriting your entries is said to be more therapeutic, better at improving your memory and helpful to increase reflective thinking. So which are you to choose?

It's a question we've long struggled with, and we could never find something that quite fit both camps, so we only went and built it ourselves! The result is Pencil Journal - Your Digital Handwritten Diary & Gratitude Journal.

You can use your Apple Pencil or finger to handwrite journal entries or make cute sketches. You can also type entries for when you are in a rush, or when your handwriting is having a bad hair day! Or combine them both in a single entry to add handwritten highlights and flourishes to typed text. Your choice. No rules.

~~~ The Benefits of Using Journaling Prompts ~~~
It's all well good deciding to start a journal, but what to write about? It can be hard to come up with new topics every day, and this can lead you to stop to journaling altogether, which would be a real shame given all the scientific benefits discussed above.

Luckily this is a problem we addressed too. We included over 50 journaling prompts to get you started so you never need be short on ideas again! Less time thinking about what to write = more time to write = more benefits from journaling.

Oh, and if you are already a pro and know exactly what you want to write about, then no worries! We also have a large freestyle space available to use however you want, complete with optional dotted, lined or blank backgrounds. And of course you can use your Apple Pencil to draw here, as well as typing too. Plus, you can even add photos to decorate your page or visually document your day.

Each daily page also comes with a motivational quote to further inspire you; over 100 are included in the app at launch.
