About

Journalistic is a micro journaling app with minimalistic design, pristine writing experience and powerful insights.

The ultimate goal of Journalistic is to help you focus on what really matters in your life, and to provide a place where you can write down and organize all the things that occupy your mind.

Our app is optimized for a distraction-free writing experience, so that you can express your thoughts clearly.

While you write, Journalistic aggregates information from your entries, tags, and mentions and compiles them into meaningful insights, e.g. how many times you went surfing in the last month or where and when you have met someone for the first time.
