What is micro journaling?

A micro journal is essentially a bullet journal with focus on a minimalistic writing style. Distilling events down to the essential gives rise to clarity and in the end that is why you keep a journal in the first place, isn't it?

Why should I start a journal?

Keeping a journal is all about awareness and focus. Both writing and recapping daily logs help you reflect upon your relationships, accomplishments, goals and life in general.

What is the advantage of a journaling app over a paper journal?

In terms of writing experience certainly nothing comes close to physical writing. However, a digital journal has the advantage of always being with you, and while searching and aggregating insights can be very tedious with a paper journal, Journalistic makes it easy as pie.

Is micro journaling suitable for beginners?

Yes! In fact, micro journaling was conceived as a way to make it easier for beginners to get into journaling.

Can I use a Journalistic micro journal together with my traditional journal?

Absolutely! Why not?

Can I use the Journalistic app as a dream journal?

Yes! Journalistic has a dedicated dream journal module and dreams can be added directly to your daily entries.

Will my journal entries stay private?

Of course! We do not share your entries with anyone.

Is the Journalistic app available on Android and iOS devices?

Yes! Journalistic is a Progressive Web App (PWA), meaning you can install it on Android, iOS and Chrome just like a native app. Journalistic is also available as native Android app in the PlayStore™ and might come to the AppStore™ as well at some point.

How can I install the Journalistic app on my device?

Check out our guide "How to install a Progressive Web App (PWA)" and you'll be up and running in less than a minute.

Can I export my journal?

Yes, you can download your journal entries easily with just one click. We're currently supporting export in text (.txt) and markdown (.md) format and will add PDF soon...

Is there an API or integrations?

Not yet, but we're working on integrating Journalistic with all your favorite apps.

Will there be a native iOS app?

Probably yes. But at the moment we are putting most of our energy into enhancing the capability of our PWA. That said, the iOS app will probably be a bit down the line.
