5つ星 - すごく気に入っています
日記と言うより箇条書きで毎日の記録帳感覚で使っています。タグも自分で作成でき便利です。タイムラインも非常に便利です。とにかく超オススメです。

5つ星 - すっごく良いです!
今までやってきた日記アプリの中でも最高のものを見つけました!こういう日記アプリを探してたんです!一番良いところはタグをつけられるところですかね。分類したいので!!!!!本当にいいアプリです(^ω^)

5つ星 - 便利で使いやすいし可愛い
こんなの探してました。ノートタイプの10年日記に一度チャレンジしたことが有りましたが、重くてかさばるし止めてしまいました。これなら写真も残せるし、教えた知り合いも喜んでいます。

5つ星 - 三日坊主もこれでオサラバ!
日記ノートを書こう!って思ってノートを、買いに行って始めるけど三日坊主の私にはムリでした…。けどこのアプリだと携帯の中にあるので目立つ所に置いておけば日記書こう!って感じでアプリを起動するので続けられます!最高です!

5つ星 - 使いやすいです
文字入力も使いやすく、気分やお天気も表示できて、その日の出来事など簡単に書いておくのには充分です。手書き風文字もよいですね。10年先が楽しみです。

Memory Book - A Simple Journal Diary App for Every Day

Memory Book - A Simple Journal Diary App for Every Day

University Lunch Box, LLC

Memory Book is an uber simple app that sends you a push notification every day to remind you to record a memory.

A memory shouldn't be an itinerary of events, but rather a single, intimate moment. You shouldn't record how you went to school and then came home and walked to the grocery store and then watched an episode of Seinfeld and went to bed. Rather, a memory may describe how your teacher started to yell as she scolded your friend. Over the course of three sentences her voice escalated and escalated and a girl on the front row had to throw her hands over her ears because the teacher was so loud. At that point you wanted to laugh but held it back so your teacher wouldn't turn on you.

Memory Book is somewhat of an anti-social network. You want to be recording memories everyday. It keeps your mind sharp. But you don't necessarily want your aunt Caroline auditing your life.
