Capture Your Daily Life With Tag Journal [Free App]

TagJournalIconOur iPhones and iPads are integrated into our daily lives in numerous ways. I use my iPhone so much I feel lost without it. One thing I’m constantly trying to do is jot down information to share with you on iOS Etc. Previously I reviewed a journaling app called Day One and I absolutely love it. There are numerous others out there and one I’ve recently discovered is Tag Journal and right now it’s being offered for free.

Those of you heading back to school may be looking for something to capture your class notes, reports, or even your daily life around campus. If money is tight, splurging on another app in the iOS App Store might be out of the question. Take advantage of this opportunity to snatch up a great journaling application.

Checkout the description below, but make sure you act fast since Tag Journal won’t be free for very much longer. Eventually the price will jump back up to $2.99 and if you got it free, you can use the money you saved during happy hour at your favorite pub to forget how awful it is to be back in school.

*One app you might want to check out to help you select the right beer during happy hour is Beer Satchel.


New iOS 7 journal/diary, ideal for everyone: students, writers, journalists and travelers will love it!

Record your life events, thoughts and ideas with photos, short videos, notes and voice recordings.

“If you’re looking for an all-in-one journaling and note taking app, Tag Journal may just be it. Aside from a few interface quirks, it’s probably one of the best journaling apps available, and for those familiar with Markdown, definitely check it out, you’ll be glad you did.” —

“Outstanding. Tag Journal brings one of the best designed UIs. It brings light and colorful palette, but retains its minimalism.”  —

“Everyone who enjoys writing needs to have a diary at their fingertips whenever the mood strikes. Tag Journal is the perfect tool for all writers!” — Brett Terpstra.

  • Batch operations: move, attach, merge text (notes and entries) and delete multiple items at a time. This feature will save you a lot of time. Stop typing long entries, just capture your moments or write it down quickly in notes and later, with no rush, store them in a beautiful entry.
