iOS & iPadOS

Does anyone know of a journal we can use on iOS? Not really looking at A diary or calendar just something for me to write down thoughts and look back on in future

I would recomend day one journal. This app isn't free. The current price is 5 dollars.

Thanks for this app suggestion. Do you know how to remove the emoticons which appear automatically in each entry?

I use notes, the native app. You can create folders in it and then you can have a folder named journal. I write my diary this way. If you don't like that there is Pages, but it is tricky to make folders there and you have to drag and drop wich I personally don't think present any problem for me, but some other blind persons don't like drag-and-drop. I'd say notes.

If you double tap on the top you can change the emoticon, the weather, and the date, but I don't think you can aluminate any of them.
At first it was a little annoying, but I have learned to ignore them

Other than that, this is a great little app!

Wondering if the Day One app is still accessible. I haven’t seen any comments about this sinc 2016 and I don’t want to pay for an app I cant use.

If privacy is a concern, as it is with me, you can pay for a yearly subscription to DayOne. I believe this also lets you use DayOne on the Mac, too. I am not remembering correctly everything about this because I have had DayOne since 2014, and features have been added along the way. And there are a lot of features that I am not talking about here. You can go to their site at and check out the help articles before you decide.

Hi. Although not an app, I have used Dreamwidth on my Mac and iPhone since 2014. There are free and paid accounts available, and the main site is completely accessible with VoiceOver. They also have a mobile site which I've used on occasion, and it works well too. Just head on over to . They might have an app in the future, but that remains to be seen. For those of you who are privacy-conscious, I recommend you check them out.
