This is a great free app. I've tried many different similar apps, but it's easy to use, looks nice, and doesn't require a lot of resources.

"Note: This application contains in-app and/or external module purchases." Then it's NOT free then, is it?

This is a great journalling app that continues to get more refined with each release. I was a long time user of viJournal before it got discontinued, and I think I like Diarly even better than viJournal. For those people complaining of subscriptions, there is also the option of a one time purchase. I chose the subscription model because this app is so good I want to continue supporting it going forward.
