Bullet Journal Companion for Positive User Reviews

Bullet JournalThere are zillion of apps for “personal productivity” but how do they perform on “personal” terms? For me Bullet Journal has been an extraordinary experience. The first 6 months frankly obsessed with it. Read everything on it and followed it exactly. Then the start of this year lost my way a bit. Experimented with conventional digital apps in January. Still not happy, then thought, hang on what am I doing? Get your notebook out and adapt Bullet Journal to suit your needs. I now use the basic Bullet Journal formula with minor personal adaptations. That for me is its core level of genius, a proven simple technique with adaptability. Believe me it works and makes you feel like a human being in charge and not a person flicking through a digital app all the time..Version: 2.0.6

Simple and I Love the “Self-Cleaning” AspectSimple to use and I love that it deletes posts after a couple days. It keeps you accountable to use it for what it’s created for and if you don’t move a note over, it’s gone. So if it’s truly important to you, you’ll make the time to log it permanently in your journal..Version: 2.0.6

I like the backup feature!Last year with my Bullet Journal in the dead of winter with the outside bar in front of my apartment I decided to rip out a couple journal entries, feelings of remorse for someone I held deer inside. I regret it, ripping out the entries. I will always write, I will always write with conviction with a hopeful air of authority. With Love..Version: 2.0.3

Simple, elegantThis app is a nice companion to your physical Bullet Journal practice. It is not a replacement or digital bullet journaling. I like the quick access to blog posts, the log, and the reminders. I would like to suggest making log easier to access, for some reason having it at the bottom of the list always takes me a while to find it. I think keeping the app clean, simple, and focused on supporting the physical bullet practice is the right direction..Version: 1.4.1

Good companion app and storage solutionThis is a good companion application, which I mainly use for scanning pages of my journal. The way you can see a photo of the front of your journal and the pages in a two-page spread is really nice. What is also nice is that the user can include two pieces of metadata with each journal page: the date and a tag called “Collection”. This is what makes the journal searchable. The main suggestion I would like to put forth is that it be possible to add as many additional user-created tags per page as needed for easy reference of past events. Only being able to have a single “collection” as a search tool is more limiting than I would like..Version: 2.1.1

Love this app, but have one idea!This is a GREAT companion app for your BUJO. I love the log that disappears after 48 hours, it really encourages you to check it daily to ensure you’re using your journal. I have one thing I’d like to change: I’d love if the daily reflections were user-generated tick marks. By that I mean: sometimes I’ll check my BUJO, but I will forget to open the app. If I do this is looks like I didn’t actually check my journal, when really I just didn’t check the app. Other than that this is super useful! I do wish we could have some more articles with photo inspiration as well..Version: 2.0.3

Great Companion to Bullet JournalAs with Ryder Carroll’s book, it delivers a lot more than expected in terms of insight and topics covered. It is extremely well thought out and functional. The Bullet Journal has changed my life, I am a lot less stressed and more creative. Highly recommend everything that Ryder does..Version: 1.4.1

Please optimise for iPadPlease also create an optimised iPad version (it can be used on the iPad but only in iPhone mode ie the display is small or zoomed in.Version: 2.0.3

Invaluable additional BuJo toolI find this app invaluable for those times I’m away from my BuJo. I like that there is only 48hrs to migrate entries from the app to my BuJo as it keeps me accountable and on track. Setting up the daily reflection alerts ensures that I don’t forget to check in on those busy days, or to migrate entries across from app to BuJo, which has really supports setting up a good habit. As someone new to bullet journaling, having the guide at my fingertips has been helpful as have the articles..Version: 1.4.1

Nice concept could be fasterThe selling point of this app is that you can use it to rapidly log bullet journal items when you are away from your journal. The unique constraint that the app introduces is that your entries expire after 48 hours. You are intended to migrate them to your paper journal. This is a really nice concept, and eliminates the propensity to endlessly add clutter to digital tools, which is probably why you started using the bullet journal in the first place. Where it falls flat is not living up to the BuJo concept of rapid logging. The app should immediately present you with a space to add a bullet, but instead makes you sit through an 3-4 second animation before you get the Log menu option. This can be somewhat mitigated with the today widget, but it would be better if the app focused on this core capability. Beyond that it would also be nice to have Siri shortcuts so that billets can be quickly added by voice so one can clear their head and get back to the task at hand..Version: 1.4.1

AwesomCool.Version: 1.3

An important part of my day but could be even betterI love having this app, mainly as the missing link when I’m away from my physical journal. The reminds you reflect are nice as well. The majority of my use of the app is jotting down tasks and notes so I don’t forget them before I’m back with my journal. With that in mind, there are a few key improvements that could be made: 1. Give the option to disable animations. Sometimes waiting for the main screen to load in is maddening when I’m trying to ensure something is preserved before I forget it. 2. Light / Dark mode options. There seems to be no way to change the dark background, meaning that the app is difficult to use in bright sunlight. 3. Allow nesting when using the log..Version: 1.4.1

Very usefulThe current (and much improved version) is a joy to use. The setup guides and articles are helpful to the new user (you basically get to carry the BuJo blog on your smartphone) but the Log section is a really great way to make a note of something to migrate into your actual analog Bullet Journal..Version: 2.0.3

BEAUTIFULLY simpleI have no idea how such a simple app is so pleasant to use...but it is. The background photos are just beautiful, and the articles are laid out in such an aesthetically pleasing way that I love browsing through them throughout the day, instead of defaulting to browsing social media. No visual clutter. The log is great for when things pop into my head when I'm lying in bed or not in a place where I can easily write them in my bullet journal. (They disappear after 48 hours so that they don't cause clutter like every other note taking or reminders app does. The reflection part is there to remind you to check in and update your journal.) I'm not one to spend money on apps but for some reason, this was an easy choice.👍🏼.Version: 1.3

Very very helpfulI only found this a couple of weeks ago and it’s really helping me stay on top of my health issues and compliance issues. Wish I had found it before! I watched a lot of videos where people went to amazing lengths producing beautiful artwork in theirs but to be honest I find that takes away the whole idea of the bullet. I keep mine simple and to the point and it works well for me. I like how you can adapt it to your needs. I don’t bother with a daily planner as the weekly one works for me. I also use a monthly and a yearly future planner. I am enjoying journaling and it is fun to use as well..Version: 1.4.1

New to BujoI got this app to learn more about bullet journaling and I decided if I was going to learn the system I would get the app and the Bullet Journal from the store. I will post again later after I am more experienced. I have tried normal journaling but never stuck to it and before I retired I always used the Franklin system. I started using a blank book a few months back but found myself wondering if the Bullet Journal will be more interesting and fun. So far Ryder's system is working for me and helps me remember things as I get older. Don't laugh you will be there someday..Version: 1.3

This could be the one!I’ve used many organizing apps, concepts, methods, and processes but never discovered one that best fits how I work and think. . . until now. I’ve only been at it a week, but already fell comfortable and confident that my search for the Holy Grail has finally been successful. Thank you..Version: 2.0.5

Usually 4 starsIs anybody else having issues with the app opening? I’ve had this app for a long time and it was working great until this week when it opens and all I get is a black screen then it shuts down. I’ve 3 or 4 journals on there and I’m afraid I’ve lost everything I’ve saved. I emailed the team for support at the weekend but nothing. Very disappointing.Version: 2.0.3

Perfect companion... just one thingI just got into bullet journaling. Reading the Method book. Love the v2 app. The only issue is that the app appears to be tailored for notebooks that have the odd page numbers on the left and evens on the right. My notebook, the very popular Leuchtturm1917, is the opposite. Therefore, the notebooks in the Library need an extra option for page number orientation. Without it, I don’t get to see facing pages together when browsing the notebooks. Another less important feature would to be able to configure the number of index pages in a notebook. The app has 4. My Leuchtturm1917 only has two. So I see two blank index pages in the app that I can remove. No biggie, but a nice to have..Version: 2.0.2

Beautiful, but integration needs updatingI really love this app. The one problem is that some of the articles aren’t integrated well into the app. Pictures don’t show and spacing is messed up. I hope that they’ll fix in an upcoming update. Great buy and it really helps me when I’m away from my BuJo!!.Version: 1.4.1

Recent Update is ComplicatedI don’t need to take photos of my BUJO pages. I prefer the original app. It was simple and easy to use in the same way the BUJO analog system is. I really appreciated the accountability of the calendar marking off the times I did a reflection. I don’t see that here in the latest iteration. I may have to delete the app and go back to using the notes app to capture thoughts and ideas on the fly. Updated review: calendar has been restored but it has glitches. For today, 1/7 in the evening, it’s showing a completed morning reflection on 1/8. Please test the changes before implementing!! 21 Oct 2020: Finally, after ten months the date and time issue with the Reflection is fixed. Still can’t give it 5 stars as it is more complicated than it needs to be. New bells and whistles don’t equate to better..Version: 2.0.4

Like it a lotI have enjoyed my Bullet Journaling practice as it has helped me get important tasks done and helped me to focus my energy and time. The companion app is great for logging tasks and events when I don’t have my journal with me and the library section allows me to refer to previous books when I want to find something I’ve done in the past. Could all of it be done with apps on my phone? Sure, but the point is to get away from some of the digital craziness and write things down by hand. The app is a good backup when I haven’t got my journal with me and I use it every day..Version: 1.4.1

Works good.Good reminder to pay attention to your BuJo for those of us just getting in the habit of using one. Need to add some more "reflections" as if you are consistent with it they start to repeat..Version: 1.3

Widgets are NEARLY perfectI’m a long time bullet journaller but a new user of the companion app and we’ve been getting along swimmingly. The companion app is a lovely digital space. It is sparsely featured in a mindful and intentional way, which empowers me to log tasks and thoughts on the go while still encouraging me to come back to my notebook. For me, the notifications, the expiring log entries, and the library (which I haven’t fully used yet) elevate the official BuJo companion app above using another notetaking app for the same purpose. One tiny improvement I’d love to see is in the Log Overview widget. Can you stop it from displaying migrated or completed tasks? I use the widget on my home screen to see outstanding tasks and it’s distracting to have it filled with tasks I’ve actioned..Version: 2.5.0

From the creator of BuJoThis is the original app from the creator of bullet journaling and it stays absolutely true to the principles. I love how they haven’t tried to replace your analogue journal but instead enhance it. For example you can record bullets and notes on the app if you are away from your journal, but it reminds you to migrate them and then deletes them after 48 hours. It has all of the info and guidelines to help you get started and stay on track, but also access to blog posts and videos to inspire you to try new things and expand. Part of the grounding of a bujo is the analogue process and physical object and this app helps that interact with our digital world without appropriating it..Version: 1.4

Love it!I really like the option to record items that I need to add to my journal when I don’t have my journal with me (or in the middle of the night when I don’t want to turn on the light). But I’d like it better if I could use Siri to add “tasks”, “notes”, or “events” to the app without having to open the phone. If it is possible now, I don’t know how. Also, it’d be nice to have a setting that is something like “Log opens immediately”. I’m always wanting the log and not the menu items when I’m in a hurry. When I want the other items, I’m usually not in a rush and wouldn’t mind hitting a menu button to get to them..Version: 1.4.1

I love this app!I love this app! I’m fairly new to BUJO but it is a match made in heaven for me! Because I try to keep my phone with me & this app enables me to make a quick note about something I don’t want to forget. At the end of the day I can thoughtfully transfer that list into my journal. Maybe the novelty hasn’t warn off for me, but an added benefit is that I don’t get distracted by how cool & fun my journal is. 😂 It has been an effective additional tool to help me control my life rather than it running me..Version: 1.4.1

Great companion to the bujoGreat features; allows you to log things on your phone if away from your journal, with notifications to remind you. You can also log in to read motivating quotes and aphorisms, and more. Really works well with this journaling method..Version: 1.4.1

Just what I neededThe only feature I make use of in this app is the log, but it’s worth the price of admission. I needed a place to Willy capture what’s in my head when my journal isn’t around. There are plenty of all that do capture, but this app does it best for bullet journals. Each log entry is either a task, idea, or event, there’s easy status notation to mark entries as Migrated when I transfer them to my journal, and the best feature is that the entries disappear after 72 hours, which nudges me get them on my journal AND keeps the app uncluttered My only wish for future updates would be a 3D Touch feature that allows users to start any if the three log entry types right from the iOS Home Screen rather than requiring users to first open the app, choose log, and choose an entry type. Eliminate that pain point and it’d be a perfect app..Version: 2.1.1

Good when the notebook is not aroundWhat I don’t understand though is why the notes, bullets etc. are listed in the app in reverse order they’ve been entered. When I transfer them to the notebook, I have to start reading them from the bottom up. Maybe the app developers don’t use the bullet journal method much. Even better if it allowed reordering the notes and levels of indentation but not essential. At least a top-down mode would be nice (configurable as not to confuse users accustomed to the current mode)..Version: 2.0.5

So convenient!I love my paper bullet journal so much, it has changed my life. I need only 2 digital accessories to make it work: my iOS calendar, where I jot down future tasks that have to happen on a specific day (and which I then migrate to my daily log in my bullet journal when that day arrives), and this app! I mostly use this app to capture thoughts and tasks when it’s not convenient to write in my bullet journal. Of course I then transfer these thoughts and tasks to my bullet journal later that night or the following morning. Perfection..Version: 1.4.1

CompanionI just started Bullet Journaling, and wish I had discovered it years ago! I don't use the library feature yet, so I'm sure this app will help out a lot more in the future, but right now having the ability to quickly log something in my phone when I don't have my journal onhand is very helpful. I especially appreciate that 3d touch allows me to add something straight from the homepage..Version: 1.3

Love it!Really helpful companion to use with your bullet journal, very calming helps you be productive and mindful. The only thing I would like to see is all the 'quotes' you log on your reflection page/Days reflection log, that would be a really nice addition and more personal because you choose which quote you want to log it would be great to look back on them.Version: 1.1.2

Great! But Needs a couple of things added to itGreat to have when you don’t have bullet journal and great incentive to migrate notes because they disappear within 48 hours but I’ve found this not long enough. As we all have different needs, chronic illness etc or travelling, would be good to set the hours yourself maybe even up to a week. It’s a good app however I have 2 more issues that I hope could be noted and sorted in future updates: 1) the reflection log happens automatically and if you open it up it automatically checks off and you can’t ‘ undo’ this.. sometimes I’ve opened it up accidentally and didn’t actually reflect or even forgotten to check off days that I did reflect and it doesn’t let me go back and check it or go back and delete a check. Would be helpful if you could double click it to delete a check and go back on past days and do it. Otherwise it’s not very incentivizing if it’s not accurate and you been using your actual bulletin journal every day but the app then doesn’t reflect it. 2) I read somewhere that the bulletin journal app would let you store photographs/ scans of pages from your bulletin journal, I couldn’t find this at first but realised it’s the ‘library’. It only lets you take pics of the front cover and indexes as a way of tracking your past journals, which is good but it would be so great to be able to take pics to archive certain useful pages to have on phone within app as opposed to in your standard photo album on phone. Haven’t noticed any updates on this app regarding these things, really hope it can be :).Version: 1.4.1

Bulgur JournalVery helpful when out and about.Version: 2.0.6

Huge BuJo FanI just started using the app. I logged my first journal into the library and see great potential for the library as a way to track collections over the long term. I’m feeling frustrated that I can’t have the same collections migrate to the next journal! I would love to see the evolution of collections over time over multiple journals. Ideally I would be able to see pages from multiple journals under one collection. BuJo powers that be please make it so! 🙏.Version: 2.0.3

Great appVery useful on the go, where I’m not always in a position where I can pull out my bujo and my pen to write down things that have crossed my mind!.Version: 1.4.1

Excellent appSpecially the widget. This widget is at the heart of bullet journal system. *Rapid Logging*.Version: 1.3

Good companion to a paper journalThe information in it is useful but the best bit is the ability to do quick rapid logging when you don’t have your journal to hand. The only addition I’d like to see is this syncing to iPad too..Version: 1.4.1

Disappointed About 48 Hour RuleIf it were mentioned in the description that logged items would disappear after 48 hours, I would not have downloaded the app. I was hoping to use the event log for events that go past my future log. The one thing that caused me to struggle with bullet journaling is the inability to put log events or tasks that occur far past the next six months (the length of my future log). I was excited when I saw the app mentioned on the How to ADHD channel, but immediately disappointed when I realized my items were only temporary..Version: 1.3

Simple interface, love it!Not to complex and I log my thoughts on the go, socially when I don’t carry my journal. Later I migrate them to my journal, really helpful for brain dump.Version: 2.1.1

An excellent app with an annoying bugThis is an awesome app as a companion for bullet journal. I struggled a lot with actually using my bullet journal everyday and this app has helped a lot. I do find it frustrating that it will almost always put my evening reflection one day ahead and then not save my photo so I have to go back and add it in again. There is also an “FAQ” section but no really support or trouble shooting about the app in that section. It seems to be generic BuJo stuff..Version: 2.0.3

Good companion conceptI like the app but hope it continues to develop, I love the reflection although some are not for me and my usual type of reflection but I use them as a part of my reflection. The log is great but needs some work as I can't log and reflect and if I can't access my journal between reflections thus is an issue. I would prefer a little longer to log as if I am out for the day (without the journal 'family time' I find by the time I can write in it it's gone, having dyslexia this would work great if it was more effective. I also think more could be done to develop this, but the concept it good..Version: 1.3

Amazingly simply and So helpful!This app works so well with the bullet journal system. You can log anything that comes up during the day and it reminds you to ‘migrate’ it to your journal later. This is the first Diary/ workbook system that has ever worked for me..Version: 2.0.5

Digital making Analog practicalUsing an analog Bullet Journal has been a wonderful experience. Thank you, Ryder, for sharing your method. But there were always two concerns in the back of my mind: why happens if I lose my BuJo and how do I see all my old collections of quotes, gift ideas, etc, without carrying a pile of notebooks around with me. This app solves both of these. A photo every time I reflect means I’ve always got a backup. Then the ability to index these photos solves my second problem of having constant access to my historic collections. This process is so worthwhile that I have just scanned in my last 3 BuJos giving me an accessible digital record. Two changes would make this app even better: 1) access to the scanned library on my iPad so I can read the scans on the larger screen. 2) for the library layout to allow for notebooks where spreads are numbered differently, eg 2-3, 4-5 etc not the expected 1-2, 3-4 Thanks again for a great app..Version: 2.0.3

Nice app- worth gettingThis is a good support app for bullet journal users. Wish I could view the calendar check in before I do a reflection to see if it’s accurate though. Sometimes it logs to the following day for no apparent reason..Version: 2.0.3

The perfect bridge between a handwritten tool and a smartphoneI love the mindfulness and time management of my handwritten bullet journal. It has transformed my life. But I ALWAYS have my phone in me. This app, which only stores what you type in it for 48 hours allows me to make a note of a task or idea the instant it occurs before I can forget it BUT also ensures that these captured insights end up in the bujo where they can be organized and implemented..Version: 2.0.2

PSA!! The widget makes a good app GREAT!I use this mainly for logging, and I liked the app before, but recently I added the app’s widget to my “Today” screen and now I LOVE IT. I just swipe right from the Home Screen and there’s a little widget where I can start logging a task, note, or event with ONE TAP. This is the most frictionless way to rapid log that I’ve found in several years of BuJo-ing. Love it. I review/transfer the contents of the app log as part of my daily reflections. I also appreciate the articles and how-to’s. I haven’t used the other app features but just for the logging alone, it’s worth it!.Version: 2.1.1

Great companion appI'm new to bullet journalling but have found this app invaluable. I especially like the easy access to articles and the reflection reminders which are ensuring I'm making bullet journalling a habit. Looks great, works well - yes, it's paid but I think it's worth it. The Log facility is great too..Version: 1.2

Good App on its way to being great.I've been using the app for a while now. Although I only use it on occasion the latest enhancements are moves in the right direction and giving me reasons to use it more often..Version: 1.2

Updated app rocks my socksAbility to keep log of whatever page I want helps me highlight key pages while leaving most dailies unlogged - don’t have to shuffle through the mundane to spot the gems. A quick snapshot of the page places it in the log with page number. I still use reflections for great quotes and like seeing the marks add up each day on the log screen. Thanks, Ryder Carrol for improving my ADHD life through the Bullet Journal Method..Version: 2.0.2

Good companionI like to add things to the log when I’m not near the journal—like when I’m walking the dog and random thoughts appear. I wish log was at the top, or bold- just called out a little more. I’m new, so the references are helpful. I would like it if the icon on the phone would show there are pending log statements that will be deleted that day, as the 48 hour mark draws near. Extra reminders are always helpful. Worth the money for me..Version: 1.4.1

No regrets!I usually refrain from investing in paid apps but I purchased this one and I have no regrets. I love the simple design. The Log feature is the one I constantly use and I like the fact that I can get reminders for Reflection time. I thought it would be nice to have the Nesting feature for entries in the log but maybe it’s for the good cause that would only make the app complicated..Version: 1.4.1

Great app, learn the system firstThis app is a great complement to the Bullet Journal Method. If you’re looking for an organizational app without knowing the Bullet Journal Method, then this app is not for you. If you’re looking for an organizational method, then try out The Bullet Journal Method. It’s easy to learn, very customizable, takes minimal effort and time. I know that sounds too good to be true, but I’m not being paid to say this, I’m just a guy who’s entire family and job is benefiting from my Bullet Journal practice..Version: 2.0.2

Very usefulI’m a newbie to The Bullet Journal Method: one month in. It’s certainly working for me. I purchased the Companion app and realised immediately how it would work for me because I don’t carry my journal with me when I’m out and about. The temporary log section is perfect for me to make a quick note when I have ideas and remembered tasks. And the way it only holds the notes temporarily, highlights the need to transfer the notes to your journal before they disappear (so clever). Today I viewed the related tutorial videos and gleaned some more helpful ideas about how to catalogue my journal indexes which will be necessary after several years of journaling. Well done Ryder Carroll, thank you for such helpful and well designed innovation. I’m a fan!.Version: 1.4.1

Handy and bullet pointsI like it because you can jot down reminders to put in your bullet journal especially when you can’t carry your paper version with you. People who don’t like it, it’s probably because they expect it to do the same as the paper and pen version. It is just a quick note to yourself to put into your journal when you have access to it..Version: 1.4.1

Reflection not workingI have the same issue as another reviewer: the evening reflection logs in the following morning and the morning for the evening. Annoying! Otherwise, i really like how the app supports the BUJO. Update: I’m so sad about this app. I got it just before the update and loved the reflection logs. Last update made it unusable for that. Seems like the developers should have corrected right away since it used to work great..Version: 2.0.2

I love it!I love that we can log now on the app so I don’t have to worry about carrying my BUJO everywhere with me! The only thing that could make it better for me personally is if the app, or specifically the log function, were watch compatible. I work at a plant and can’t really stop to jot things down on my phone but I can use voice to text to keep notes if the app were to allow it!.Version: 2.0.6
