The best way to latch to happiness, private details, the innermost fears and whims is to lock them in a diary. Isn’t it? But, how locked and protected your journal entries and contact details are in a traditional diary? Though I once bought a lock diary with a cute little lock dangling from the notebook, but that I was still apprehensive of privacy of my notes and data. Then, I discovered these ultimate tools to ensure privacy for my journal entries. It’s been said enough that ‘there’s an app for that’, so I followed the notion and started searching for some apps to digitize my journal entries. And what I found was awesome!
Tight Security for Tight-lipped Me
I discovered and selected some handful diary apps that could be the safest retreats to nestle my feelings, observations, changed perspectives (my secret chat conversations, shhh…), judgments such as bitching about my monster-in-law (I mean my mom-in-law), my hard-to-please seniors (Horrible Bosses, huh!) and my photos and videos too. Voila! My diary was never so vivid though I clipped some images to respective pages, but traditional diaries were never so considerate of my needs for versatile content and tight security.
With these apps, I have traversed past the traditional form of creating journal to embrace convenience and versatility of digital diaries. I downloaded these diary or journal apps on my iPad to create my up to the minute log on the move. I downloaded Momento (Diary/Journal), My Own Diary HD, MaxJournal and iJournaler. Main features of these apps that astounded me were ensured security with password protection, flexibilities of maintaining separate diaries (separate for professional and personal), mobility and versatility.

Since childhood I have preserved all my diaries like souvenirs of growing up, but to my dismay I cannot carry them along. But, with these apps on my iPad I can take all digital diaries of my life along with me wherever I go. I will read, visualize and relish my documented feelings and observations on these diary apps. I will garner more reasons to smile and feel the joy of discovery, especially when I lose myself in the midst of ruthless struggles of life, when I lose the voice of my heart among those rational ‘should-have’, ‘could-have’, ‘would-have’ noises.
