Description

CustomJournal is a structured format journaling app. One where you are presented with writing prompts. This helps focus your thinking, making sure you ask yourself the right questions each day.

However, sometimes those fixed questions are too rigid, they aren't exactly what you want. Why can't you ask different questions? As you change, the structure of your journal should change with you. That's why I created CustomJournal. Its the best of both worlds. CustomJournal allows you to create templates with prompts of your own choosing.

That way you can focus on what you want. Maybe its working on your fitness. Maybe its your friendships. Maybe its practicing gratitude and staying positive. Whatever it is you can adapt your journal to help you focus on it.
