No offense, but… can I have some more information for a soft in a more than full category? I know, it's free. But is it more than one of dozen mardown apps (although with integrated preview)?
How does it store, save, sync, open, modify, convert files? What formats does it open? In which formats does it export?
Does it display in fullscreen, using Apple OS feature, or does it have its own fullscreen mode?
As a journal app, how does it handle with calendar feature? Does it interact with Calendar?
Does it publish straight to the web? Does it sue ftp protocol?
That's a few questions which answer will help with the choice to finally download it ot not.

As its free, just download it and find out. If you don't like it, delete it.

I do not expect software developers to publish white papers with all the technical information on their apps. This is precisely the reason why MacUpdate *also* gives you links to both the Mac App Store page (some of your questions answered there) and the developer's website (where the rest would normally be answered; this dev hasn't started their blog yet but they still have an email address link you can use).

As for your specific question about full-screen, the screenshot right on this page answers that question. I agree that export formats would be useful to know, along with Calendar integration, but apparently the dev wants you to TRY IT, and you can find out the answers to your questions that way, so that seems to be the way to discover (other than emailing them) what you want to know.

"As its free, just download it and find out"

Or forget it without downloading, as there's not enough info to make you download. I really don't know how is your workflow but mine, and time to spend to try a new soft is really reduce, and the description really help me to make myself an opinion.

That said, I try it and, as you say, delete it quickly; already have several tools better in every feature…

1. Download it.
2. Test it
3. Keep it or delete it.
It is as simple at that, a lot simpler than asking so many questions.

Very sorry to spend your time and mine with this, and I won't do it again; next time with a soft with less description for my convenience, I just forget it simply.
So there's more simple than the 3 steps you suggest:
1) read on it,
2) if you're not convinced, forget it.
