I used the original app years ago and was excited to download the new app and get started again. The app seems to work just fine as far as journaling, etc., but has some bugs.
For some reason I am unable to set my location within the app so it says I am in Hilton Head SC. Which sadly I am not, although it would be nice this time of year! I have tried setting the location in the app but it won’t let me and instead just shows an orange “warning” triangle. Tried to go into “Location Services” in my iPhone settings and the app isn’t even listed there to set my location to “on.”
And the 2nd thing is the calendar. This appears to be the part of the app that needs the most amount of work. If you have past entries, it appears that the app shows all entries (current and past) no matter what month you are in. For example, if it’s December, the app shows entries from November and December along with other prior months. When I’m in a month, I only want to see the entries for that month along with a separate area/header that says something like “Past Entries”. Also, there’s no way from looking at the entries, what year they are from. It’s a big jumbled mess of all of your entries. Also, it would be nice if the calendar showed at a glance which days had entries? Or maybe that’s what it’s doing by listing past entries under the month? The past memories just don’t seem to change when I change months though and again, it’s hard to tell what year you’re in when there’s no year listed. And last - it would be nice to have a way to jump around the calendar to specific months/dates without having to endlessly scroll through each month.
I loved this app in the past and I want to love it now. I’m a little disappointed that I had to pay $2.99 this go around for an app that doesn’t fully work. Will gladly change my review once there’s been an update and things are working correctly. That being said, we all need a little gratitude in our hearts and lives and I am grateful for this app.
11/12/17 - Just found another bug. Trying to share the daily quote to Facebook doesn’t work even though I am logged into the app and connected to FB account. When I try, the screen flashes white and nothing happens.
