I absolutely love Journler but I'm very weary of putting my life into an application that the developer doesn't even use anymore. It just seems wrong. See the Journler forums (Page Torn Out section) for more. This is the quote from the developer that has me rethinking my use of Journler:

"And so a confession. While I've continued to work on Journler -- I'd like to see the program highly stable and functional as much as anyone else -- I don't use it anymore. I haven't written in Journler since the end of June. I keep a hand written journal now. "

can you also import wordpress-blogs and edit them? i only found the option to send entries.

I just wish it could have "New Blogger" integration...man other than that, it's the best app of its class for the Mac, I think.

Found this after buying Yojimbo.

It feels more flexible, and creative.

Had some problems with it crashing, and wondering how it will scale, but the export features are great so I'm not worried.

What a gem! Why didn't I see this until now...

I wish it had international language support. For instance, I'm Swedish and would like to be able to filter by Å, Ä and Ö characters as well. Other than that, awesomeness!

Great data collection app. I've used it for a year now, and keep finding new and cooler uses for it. Phil Dow is the most responsive developer I have ever sent feedback to. 5 stars!

Amazing, complete and powerful app. I use a 1/5 of its power, but it's also great for simple use. The fact that the developer offers it free for personal use is incredible. I highly suggesting donating or buying a license (which is mandatory if you're making money with the help of Journler).

Best of breed!! Incredibly useful and versatile. Recommended to everyone who is serious about archiving and structuring data. Journal writing isn't just enough for this. And it's free. Thanks for this!

Absolutely stunning.
I love how customizable and flexible it is. Even the icons in the left column can be changed to anything you want, which is great, very helpful for a global view of your stuff.

Thanks Marcus. Journler is such a great app the old tags just weren't doing it justice.
