I have enjoyed my Bullet Journaling practice as it has helped me get important tasks done and helped me to focus my energy and time. The companion app is great for logging tasks and events when I don’t have my journal with me and the library section allows me to refer to previous books when I want to find something I’ve done in the past. Could all of it be done with apps on my phone? Sure, but the point is to get away from some of the digital craziness and write things down by hand. The app is a good backup when I haven’t got my journal with me and I use it every day.
I kinda wish there was a trial period. It’s not worth the money I spent on it, because I’ve just deleted it. 👎
I have already seen the same reflections come up multiple times, and it would be nice to have them come from a wider range of sources. Marcus Aurelius is almost too easy - give me sources I’m less likely to find on my own, more from non-western sources, and set the algorithm so they don’t repeat for several months.
I really love this app. The one problem is that some of the articles aren’t integrated well into the app. Pictures don’t show and spacing is messed up. I hope that they’ll fix in an upcoming update. Great buy and it really helps me when I’m away from my BuJo!!
I thought this would be an easy and intuitive app for adding items to be logged, but it isn’t easy or useful. The article/ guide content is already in the website, and the reflection notification/ tracking function is kind of pointless, too. All in all a useful app. Bullet journal system: brilliantly useful. This app: not.
I like to add things to the log when I’m not near the journal—like when I’m walking the dog and random thoughts appear. I wish log was at the top, or bold- just called out a little more. I’m new, so the references are helpful. I would like it if the icon on the phone would show there are pending log statements that will be deleted that day, as the 48 hour mark draws near. Extra reminders are always helpful. Worth the money for me.
If you’re the kind of person who, like me, wants to use bullet journaling to keep yourself focused on priorities, this app just wastes your time. The only tool it really contains is a notes-like feature that lets you record things you think of on the fly that you want to add to your analog bullet journal - but, unlike the Notes app that Apple bundles with the iPhone and iPad, the Bullet Journal Companion’s list entries disappear after 48 hours! Heaven forbid you’re away from your paper journal for more than two days. What a waste of $2.99. I’ll just use Apple’s Notes.
I have to agree with others though, the animations are way too slow. First time, fine. After that - ESPECIALLY when launched from a notification - turn that off.
I love this app and I like the alerts it gives me to reflect each morning and evening. However, when I go to read the articles, the images never load. It’s frustrating because then if I want to see something, I have to go to the website and spend time searching for the article. Since this is a paid app, I feel that this is really ridiculous. Would you please fix it so I can see images in the blog posts within the app? Thank you!
I’m a newbie to The Bullet Journal Method: one month in. It’s certainly working for me. I purchased the Companion app and realised immediately how it would work for me because I don’t carry my journal with me when I’m out and about. The temporary log section is perfect for me to make a quick note when I have ideas and remembered tasks. And the way it only holds the notes temporarily, highlights the need to transfer the notes to your journal before they disappear (so clever). Today I viewed the related tutorial videos and gleaned some more helpful ideas about how to catalogue my journal indexes which will be necessary after several years of journaling. Well done Ryder Carroll, thank you for such helpful and well designed innovation. I’m a fan!
I like it because you can jot down reminders to put in your bullet journal especially when you can’t carry your paper version with you. People who don’t like it, it’s probably because they expect it to do the same as the paper and pen version. It is just a quick note to yourself to put into your journal when you have access to it.
I love the (analog) Bullet Journal process, and use it every day with a pen and paper, but this is really pointless. To be honest, I don’t really know what I expected, but a wrapper around some instructional content was not it. Save your money and spend it on buying a real life Bullet Journal.
Love the ap and BUJO but it's very expensive for minimal services. Honestly I could have just kept using Evernote for free
I love bullett journaling so much, its changed my life! However, im not sure what I expected with the app... i guess i way for my journal and phone to speak... but i get a reminder system... i couldve set my calendar alarm and saved $4!
Comes in handy when I'm on the go. Tons of stuff pops into my head throughout the day, and it's so crucial to have a place to put them that's convenient and portable.
It’s just the text of the website, pretty much, with minimal journaling capability—they go away after a day or two. Hard pass. Wish I could get a refund.
Bulletin journals are great. This app is not. $5 for this? I want a refund.
As an early user of the app I've found the evolving features helpful. Keep up the good work for this great app that merges the analog with digital worlds.
As an event planner I'm not always with a pen and paper. I always have my phone and it makes it easy for me to make the notes I need to and then be able to transfer them into my journal when I'm available to do it.
One suggestion. I wish it would warn you an hour before a task disappeared. That way tasks don't go into the ether.
I am in my first year of Bullet journaling. I prefer pencil and paper but am sometimes without either. The app is a great way to keep a constant place to record and plan on the go.
Initially I bought the app to support the creators of the Bullet Journal as I really appreciate the concept/method. I have been using the method at work, school, gym and home. It is simple and easy to use. The app is just that, simple.and easy to use. If you don't use the method you may find it confusing as to why the log on the app is so useful but try it out. Really try out the method. Modify it to fit your needs. You don't need to overcomplicate anything. If you have stuff to work on and need to hold yourself accountable try the method. If you are new then the app is a great place to learn the steps of setting up a basic journal. Great interface. Thank you.
I got this app to learn more about bullet journaling and I decided if I was going to learn the system I would get the app and the Bullet Journal from the store. I will post again later after I am more experienced. I have tried normal journaling but never stuck to it and before I retired I always used the Franklin system. I started using a blank book a few months back but found myself wondering if the Bullet Journal will be more interesting and fun. So far Ryder's system is working for me and helps me remember things as I get older. Don't laugh you will be there someday.
I enjoy writing in my bullet journal but often I don't have the time. The app makes it easier for me to capture my thoughts and use the journal.
Really clever and thoughtful support. Best productivity tool I've used. Take that GTD and TMI.
While I'm a fan of the bullet journal model this app merely contains information already available on the bullet journal website repackaged in an iOS app. I expected something extra considering the app is not free.
