As I have started rereading my journals I am thinking about adding the post in to some software so I can search my writing and use my journals instead of having them just sit in a cupboard. I used lifejournal years ago and it currently has close to 500 entries, however I don’t know if it the best software for me now, therefore I have been researching the software that is now available.
I am intending to continue writing my journal hardcopy and then transfer it in to the software so I am not interested in features such as prompts or timer, but the facility to search the text and tag the text is essential. I have therefore split the available software into two lists, those that seem to meet my requirements that I will test and other software that maybe of interest to other people.
Journal software I will test
Net time diary
Other journal software
Ultra Recall this is much more than journal software, but it has a journal add-on
Mondo! E journal I can’t access developers site, but there is a good review here. It is still possible to buy it from download sites
Diary studio the developers are no longer supporting this software, but it can still be download from other websites
Active diary I can’t find a developers website, but you can download it from Download.com
Have you used any of these pieces of software? Do you recommend any others that I haven’t found during my research?
