Utterly predictable. Hope you didn't pay for it.

I was one of the beta testers of the program and thought at that time that this is going to be THE new journal application. Very innovatively designed, and a developper who listens to the users. But now, unfortunately, this app seems to have been abandoned. No updates for about a year, and the homepage/blog and twitter account are no longer updated either

More then 2000 downloads and no reviews…

I've tried it I've adopted it. Per Se is for me the best personal journal I've never used. It's so natural to write in and comes with such lots and useful of features that after trying almost all kind of journals this is the one I want to stay with. It make me feel like I’m writing in paper. Congratulations to the dev(s).
