Made my day
September 29, 2019
Click here to get it from the App Store
With this blog post I want to present my latest app for macOS - a minimalistic journaling app.
You might ask if another journaling app ist really necessary so I try to quickly explain the benefits of Made my day and differences to other common apps.
Most of the apps I already tested in the past year require some sort of monthly/yearly subscription to get all features and fully use the app. Made my day is and will always be without a subscription.
There is nothing worse than a proprietary file format and no (or complicated) way to export your data in case you ever
want to switch apps.
I decided to use Markdown because it is pretty widely known and it is really easy to convert to other formats like HTML or Word.
Personal journal entries are very sensitive files. Because of that I think it just make sense to give full control to the end user. Don’t rely on custom cloud solutions - everything is just stored locally on your system in a directory that you specify.
- Want to save everything on your iCloud? Just select a directory in your Documents / Desktop directory (depending on your cloud settings)
- Google Drive? Dropbox? … ? Everything is possible
- Even saving everything on an USB drive so no data is on your PC is really easy
- And for the developers out there you can also use private repository 😉
Added in the first big update. Check the update Blog post for detailed information. There are a couple beautiful themes available. If your favorite theme is not available, leave a comment and I try to add it in a future update.
There are no external resources that get loaded. No HTTP requests are made. No user registration. Everything runs
tl;dr: No personal user data is collected or saved
I’m not quite done with Made my day but I decided it is time for it to get user feedback and suggestions. Most core
functionality is implemented.
Things I have in mind for future updates:
Different themes(already added, Update notes) Image support(also added with previous update) Different languages(added with a second update in March 2020, Update preview)
If you have any ideas of cool features or feedback just leave a comment.
