Just purchased today and I already have problems with it.
1. I get a black screen when I click on "full screen".
2. It shut itself down and lost half of my first entry upon reopening.

I want my $29.95 back. This is ridiculous for what it is...especially since it didn't work correctly.

I use Memoires every single day as a place to capture notes and todos at work. I've tried and purchased a myriad of task managers (such as Things.app), note-taking tools (such as Evernote), and document "buckets" (like Yojimbo), and never managed to find a consistent workflow that I was happy with.

Memoires is ridiculously simple. I enjoy taking notes and filing them by date. I take pictures of whiteboards at meetings with my iPhone and paste them into my notes for later reference.

For "buckets" of research documents where the date isn't that important, I switch it to "All Entries" view.

Files stored by Memoires also work consistently across machines sharing a Dropbox account. This isn't always the case with other pieces of journaling software out there.

Though it uses Sqlite for storage, I'd appreciate seeing would be the ability to export my entries to another database-like format, even if it were CSV, XML, or something like that.

Again, Memoires isn't fancy, but it works, and I was happy to pay for something void of clutter that I use almost every day.

Too expensive for what it offers and this is what's holding this app back, imho.

Simple interface is fine but then simple price as well, please. Could well benefit from some non-cluttering features while making it somewhat more interesting and useful, i.e. discreetly tagging entries.

Other diary apps offers this plus the features of "Video Memoires" (sibling app from same developer, also @ +$29.95) baked into the $29.95-license fee and has equal looks although some, granted, are over-crowded with buttons... :/

Osciroi brings some fresh winds to the Mac diary-app scene, and with an unbelievable price.

Small addition,

Too quickly be able to scan/photo something, sketch or picture with the built in iSight/FaceTime-cameras would be far more useful the current sketchboard-feature. This would also put in more in line with a no-fuss diary.

Over priced. Tried it for a week but doesn't work with Typeit4me. A must. It appears expansions created from auto pastes dont work. Only ten entries allowed for the trial which is ridiculous. We were almost prepared to over look the Typeit4me incompatibility but when we hit the ten entries limit we exported and it went straight into the trash. Also had to manually open the database each time a real pain.

18 USD for an upgrade, c'mon!

And 30 for a new licence. Seems pretty high for this kind of simple app.

A tenner for upgrade and 18 for for the full monty would be more appropriate.

Needs to be able to export as individual entries (not just one document) and preserve creation/modification dates of entries. Important if you ever want to get your entries out of the app and use in another program.

Like the feel of this app and its simplicity. A few features that I think would enhance it would be -- being able to tag or label entries, a full screen view, and configurable background color for entries.

I can't get this thing to launch, it begins to open up and then just crashes. Anyone else having this problem?

Performs as expected... clean interface, drag and drop images into entries, encryption, search, robust text formatting. I really like it and thanks to the developers for the MU promo, I purchased immediately.

If I may make a suggestion to the developer... a simple coloring scheme would be consistent with the purpose of the app and would be more helpful than say making new diaries for different things. A highlight color red might indicate a romantic entry, and could appear in the calendar as such. This would allow entries with completely different themes to be contained in a single memoire.

Entries for work could be coded blue for example, entries that involved my volunteer projects could be highlighted green.

Just a thought, pay no attention, it seems you all know what you are doing :)

The same here. I really need to print my notes but there's no way to do it except exporting files to another program to print them from there. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Nice, clean little app. Love the simple interface. I did encounter one bug, though. When I quit without saving and the drop-down dialog appears, the app still doesn't quit even if I click "save." It will only disappear if I click "don't save," but then I would just lose my changes. Just a heads-up. Also, if possible, it would be nice if a menu for browsing entries by month could be added in the future. For example, if you click the month on the calendar, you could get a drop-down menu of months containing entries... but then again this is entirely optional. Thanks for a great freeware app!
