First I love the concept of this app! I was able to easily define my diary/journal questions.
However, upon setting up a new phone using an iTunes backup I lost all my questions. Since I hadn’t actually started to use my “journal” setup this time it was not critical.
My requests/complaints are the following:
1. Add more and better export options!
This is the most critical.
2. Add iCloud and other cloud based backup options.
3. Allow the saving off questions as a template.
Thanks for your feedback, David.
I definitely intend to fix all these issues. I’ll do them in the order of increasing difficulty, starting with number 3, then number 1. iCloud is a bit trickier, so I’ll do it later, probably next year.
It’s a handy app – thanks for building and I’ve just bought the premium version. Is there a way for the app to prompt me to answer questions at a specific time?
Upon referring someone to it, we both found it was really hard to find the app in the App Store. Is there a way to make it come up when searching for “simple qa diary” “simple diary” “q&a diary” “q&a journal” “journaling qa”. I’m pretty sure the issue is around search engine keywords missing.
This app is great, it should be more popular. In fact this should be distributed to all school aged kids to learn journaling.
Thanks for your feedback. As it turned out I found that I had not lost my questions. Good on you!
Let me explain more precisely the backup options I’d like to see.
1. I’d like to expot/backup an entire journal in text format to Notes, Evernote or another text based app.
2. I don’t always want the questions repeated in an export. Especially if exporting as above. Example: question and then all the answers for that question with dates.
3. An export option to select specific questions for expot rather than all questions.
Be creative. And thank you for listening!
Currently the ap allows you to create endless amount of templates, however the user can only have daily access to THREE. I am creating several template for difference sphere of my life and would like the option to access as many templates as needed. I am willing to pay more. Is this a current feature or one you can develop?
What’s probably happening is that fourth template is hidden behind the date selector (bad UX design, I know). You just need to scroll the template list up to see it. Also if the template is empty it is ignored in the template selector when you try to create an entry.
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I don’t think that is the issue. On my ap, you don’t scroll the template list, you select it with a dot next to it. You scroll the dates. I have 4 templates but when I select the + button to add a diary entry, only 2 of the templates show up.
That list where you select a template with a dot is scrollable. You should be able to see 3 templates at a time without scrolling the list. But since you say that you only see 2 templates, the only other possible reason for it is that the other two templates have no questions in them. Please, go to Menu>Templates and make sure that at least one question is created for each template.
I bought the other templates for £2.99 how do I get them to come up in the app? Did I do something wrong?
Hi. Sorry for the late answer. Go to the Menu > Templates. You can create your templates there. Hope that helps.
How do I get to the pages where I can put in my answers to the questions?
When you add a category on the main screen (the plus button in the bottom right corner) the answer editing screen will be opened. You will enter your answers there.
If you want to later edit your answers, just tap the answer on the main screen.
If you have, for example, 2 questions in your category, but gave answer only to one of them, you will only see one question and one corresponding answer in your entry on the main screen. To add an answer to the second question tap on the first answer, then on the answer-editing screen you’ll be able to scroll horizontally to the second question and enter your second answer there.
Thank you, this helps a lot! I’m really liking this app and intend on using it to keep track of my dream
I would like to add multiple templates but I can’t seem to get to the screen where I can get to the paid version am I missing something?
Please add export as CSV or something, so it’s easier to analyze the data
I love the sigma counter app on my iphone. I was trying to get it on my work phone which is android. Is there an android version?
I just purchased the upgrade to have multiple templates. However, when I add a 2nd template and create new questions for that template, these questions completely replace the questions in my first template. I went back into my first template to add back my original questions and it did the same thing – replaced all the questions in my 2nd template. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
