Install app

Journalistic is a Progressive Web App (PWA) . PWAs are the next generation of mobile applications. You can install them directly from your web browser and, once installed, you won't feel a difference to a native Android- or iOS app, with one exception: you never need to update them.

Select your device:


For Android you have two options:

1. Download from the PlayStore™ (recommended)

Google enables the distribution of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) via Trusted Web Activities (TWA) in the PlayStore. You can install the app from the PlayStore™ as you are used to while still benefitting from all the advantages of PWAs, e.g. always-up-to-date-ness.

Get it on Google Play

2. Install as PWA from your browser

Open this page in a PWA compatible browser.

Chrome (recommended) / Brave

Once you open the page the browser will open a banner at the bottom of the page that says "Add Journalistic to Home screen". Click on it and you're ready to go.

If the banner does not appear click on the menu icon    and in the menu "Add to Home screen". That's it, open the app via the app icon.


In the address bar, to the right of the page URL you should see a little house icon with a plus symbol in the middle. Click on it and '+ Add to home screen'. That's it!

NOTE: There might be some limitations when installing Journalistic with Brave or Firefox due to limited PWA support, we strongly recommend to install the app via Chrome.


Open this page with Safari, click on the share button (box with up arrow) and in the opening popup "Add to Home Screen". Ready!

  Desktop (Chrome)

To install Journalistic on your desktop open this page with Chrome and click on the small plus icon on the right side of the address bar. If you do not see the icon, click on the menu icon    and "Add to Home screen". Perfect, start journaling...

NOTE: The app also works perfectly fine in the browser and you do not need to install it on your device. However, we recommend to install it for a better user experience.
