User Reviews

  • I find it fascinating. It lies in between simple .txt file and Evernote. Here you can annotate texts like you can have bold, italics and it can do much more. But it does not store all files in a single database file. It keeps your entries as separate .txt files. Also, it gives more importance on date wise sorting which is not unexpected as this is a digital personal journal. It can embed figures inside note when you are exporting it. I think one can use it as personal health record keeping software; because software in this category are not easy to find and it does that job pretty well. You can also create multiple journals so you can create as many as you want!

  • Please update the latest version on the project page, It's 1.14 now

  • My system is window 7, Chinese version. The editor/preview can't be switched smoothly. In fact, it doesn't work. But the idea is good. Wish to fit the bug and update it soon.

  • Looks great though unfortunately it's missing `markdown` support.

  • I have tried multiple diary apps and websites on various platforms and have always come back to RedNotebook. It's lightweight, simple to use, easy to install (I have it on my 2010 MacBook, two Lenovo PC laptops running Windows and Linux Mint, and a Chromebook running Kubuntu), and flexible enough for me to use both as a personal diary and as a work journal. I sync my notebooks using Dropbox and can easily access and edit them across all my workstations. For a multi-platform user who doesn't feel 100% comfortable with online diaries, RedNotebook is just ideal.
