Is this app dead? I read somewhere that the dev doesn't work on it anymore and it doesn't seem to have been updated in a while... I'm not an update freak, but since I'm investigating which app to chose from all the options out there, I don't want to start with an app that's not actively developed anymore... Any idea? Thanks!

I upgraded from os x 10.7 to 10.8 and journler is not working flawlessly anymore. Unexpected quits every now and then.

But i have the data on a network drive. So that might be the source of errors.
But this setup worked without any hickup for years under 10.7.

Indeed: Philip come back. I'am willing to pay a yearly fee.

Journler 2.6b4 crashes solved after upgrade from 10.6.8 – works with Mac OS X, 10.10.5 now!
After crashing more or less instantly after a Mac system upgrade I finally solved the problem by doing this:
Locate the "Journler" folder. (Mine was in the hidden directory ~Library.) I moved the Journler folder to the personal "Document" folder.
Rename the folder as a backup i.e. "Journler-original".
A. Duplicate the Journler-original.
Rename the copy to a new name (i.e. "Journler-test-01").
Go to the "Journler Entries" folder.
Trash some or half of the Entry folders there.
Launch your Journler application.
It should ask you to locate the new Journler test folder due to the name change.
Test run.
If it still crashes within minutes – jump to A and remove more Entries in the Journler Entries folder until you have caught the troublesome.
My problem appeared to be a bad file name inside Entry 64 - Resources - a picture file name with two periods.
I´m so glad I managed to get the Journler working again!
Good luck!

please please please help I need HELP :( I just downloaded this the 2.6 beta 4 version believing this could be the completely free journal app without any limitations. I had downloaded Vijournal... was so happy with it... until it suddenly told me I could no longer write any more entries unless I purchase the 20 something dollar license version. 30 entries was the limit... so it told me... I don't want this to happen again. I was hoping this could be my app. WHAT I NEED TO KNOW: In preferences > licensing it says 'registration will remain non-compulsory until version 2.6 is released' does this mean once Journler version 2.6 is released I would be unable to continue using 2.6 beta 4?? also if anyone could recommend me free unlimited journal or diary apps... just simple to use. Anything worth trying out. It would be much appreciated! Anything would be much appreciated! Thank you so much!

HI. Journler has been opensourced so I guess there is no need to buy a license and you can enjoy this amazing software gem for free.

Journler is now open source at GitHub. As a result, developer Philip Dow is no longer actively supporting Journler. The latest version, 2.6.4b, is stable on my Mini under OSX 10.7.3. OTOH Dow has been working on a smaller daily diary app called Per Se that works pretty well. It just has fewer features than Journler. Go to his site for explanations and FAQs and downloads.

I might add that if you do download this and you like it, you might consider paying for it as "donationware" as a thank you to the developer.

To update some of the comments below, I thought I should make some new ones. I'm using OSX 10.6.8 now after using 10.6.7 and all versions back to early 2006 when I converted to Journler. I have encountered no difficulties, and there are multiple export opportunities in Journler (many outputs in many formats). They do work well to my own experience. I converted to Journler after starting a journal in Daily Journal for Windows on May 5, 1994, and have made entries just about daily ever since. I converted to MacJournal (importing my Daily Journal entries in RTF) in about 2001 while it was still free, but exported everything out to Journler in RTF after MacJournal sold out because I could see it heading for the expensive bloatware it's become. As of today, I have 7,371 entries in 18 annual folders in Journler, including a number of links and some pictures, and it continues to work like a charm. In fact, it works so well, is so easy to search, and is so important to me that I am delaying installing Lion on my MacBook Pro (or even buying a new Mac) until I know that Journler works well on Lion. I don't like to mess with success, and Journler has definitely been that for me. This is the last and longest lived of my critical softwares to update--and to me it is absolutely worth the wait. I too have tried all the journaling apps, and this is the best when you get into the kind of volume I deal with. Anything can do 200 entries. A lot fewer are reliable with 5,000 or more.
