Mazzuna LLC, creators of intuitive iPhone and iPad applications, recently announced the release of Journals 2.0 - the newest version of its clean and simple writing app. Journals 2.0 takes everything that made Journals 1.1 a hit and adds Dropbox syncing, iPad optimization, and a host of other features, including the ability to create PDF documents from the text and images that make up an entire journal.
"The two most requested features by users has been for an iPad version of the app and to have some sort of syncing between devices," said developer Mazen Abdel-Rahman. "To be honest - one of the things that surprised me most was how many people were installing Journals on their iPad - even though it was initially developed only for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Of course the two features kind of go hand in hand - if Journals were to be designed for the iPad I knew I would have to include some sort of syncing since many users would use it on both devices."
With the release of Journals 2.0, users can now sync Journals between all their iOS devices through Dropbox, making it easy to keep writing at home or on the go. There is still the option to share Journal entries, as well as pictures, video, audio, or drawings, via Twitter, Facebook(TM), and email. Additionally, all chapter names, text, pictures, audio recordings, videos, and drawings in password protected Journals are protected using AES-256 secure encryption.
"My main focus when I developed Journals was to make an easy to use writing app that would let users organize their writings - and also let them password protect them and encrypt them as needed," added Abdel-Rahman.
Overall, Journals 2.0 is the next logical step in the evolution of an app created by a company that listens to what its users are saying.
Journals 2.0 is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
