Journler Once Again

Filed under: Computers and the Net — roundapple @ 6:35 am

I used Phil Dow’s Journler application for sometime, then got busy with other things. Now Journler is back as version 2 with a vengeance. It is one of the most useful, cleanest and finest-looking journal application you can ever find for your Mac.
It has a slew of new features, including better blogging support (just in case exposing your thoughts to the outside world is your cup of tea), better integration with iLife (including a one-click iWeb button), the ability to add subfolders and organize them in hierarchies, embedding of media (including PDF’s, audio and video), and alising (enabling it to find your media even if you moved it).
All in all, this software is better than others sold in the market for would-be writers.
I should say best because Journler is free, though Phil Dow would gladly accept donations.
In his weblog, he wrote that he entered it in Apple’s 2006 Design Awards contest in the category “Best User Experience.” I certainly hope he wins. As a guy who has given his talent generously to developing a well-rounded application, he deserves to win.
