The Journal is a very simple and practical diary/note taking software specially designed for users who like to keep journal or writing, developed by David R. Michael (AKA DavidRM) in 1996. It has a very high degree of ease of use, flexibility, security and reliability. It is important to emphasize that it is extremely safe, allowing you to enable password protection and file encryption features on the diary, thus making your privacy more secure, stable and non-leakable.

The Journal has a variety of layout ways, powerful word processing functions, allows the insertion of text, photos, videos, files and other contents, supports the setting of various custom reminders, such as appointments, events, activities, tasks and special days, etc., and its convenient search function enables you to quickly find the content you want.
