Daily journal with style.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

Memoires is a really nice, simple journeling app; I'd use it except that it's, IMHO, overpriced...considering it's simplicity. So I'll pass on this one. A much better bet, I think, might be Journler: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/18214/journler It's got some really interesting features, and it's free for non-commercial use.

I just wanted to leave an updated comment regarding my previous post about spellcheck as you type - it already has this feature under the Edit -> Spelling options in the menubar. It was strictly my ignorance that I didn't know it was there.

I really like this little app. It's clean, simple and works well for me. Install was a snap and I was journaling in no time. Two little features I'd love to see would be spellcheck as one types and autosave, but if I could only have one, I'd choose spellcheck. This works perfectly for what I use it for - keeping quick notes to myself about things. Keep up the good work and thank you for this app!

Doesn't work for me. Tired it but it won't save anything for me. So I guess it really is a 'beta'. Tried downloading it several times but none would save a journal entry. Opening GUI looks good however.

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!
