Bullet Journal Companion Reviews


What a waste!  washingtonist  1 star

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.

One Ohm

Nice overview and refresher  One Ohm  4 star

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.


Like the concept. Where’s the pictures?  indiemamma  1 star

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 love this app!  Myheartshome  5 star

I love this app! I’m fairly new to BUJO but it is a match made in heaven for me! Because I try to keep my phone with me & this app enables me to make a quick note about something I don’t want to forget. At the end of the day I can thoughtfully transfer that list into my journal. Maybe the novelty hasn’t warn off for me, but an added benefit is that I don’t get distracted by how cool & fun my journal is. 😂 It has been an effective additional tool to help me control my life rather than it running me.


Slow loading, no iPad support, no rotation support for landscape  shawnhank  1 star

New to BuJo, and new to this app. Read the reviews and it’s a mixed bag because most reviews are one liners or rants against the guy who created this system vs the developers who make this app. Yes there is a difference. When learning a new system, it would be nice if that system actually considered how users work to input data. The lack of iPad support (side by side, landscape, Apple Pencil support etc, make this really hard to use. It’s 2019 guys, please update this app so it has a chance to be as life changing as the system/practice it supposed to support/enhance.


Nice, but the long loading Animation every time!...  スッライ  3 star

Whenever you want to log with this app away from your bullet journal, you'll have to wait for all the categories to slowly fade in from top to bottom which might be pretty but is hardly productive and efficient; for some reason the log is the last category instead of the first! So, you'll be waiting the longest if you want to do any logging! This... is very poor design, and makes the app cumbersome and frustrating to use even as just a 'companion'. Other than that, it's okay. It's pretty, minimalistic, smooth, and does what it's advertised to do. Is it worth the price tag though?.... It might be for you, but I'd warn you to investigate this app's flaws first before taking the plunge if you don't want to be immediately disappointed what feels like... a free very basic app designed to get you to buy official bullet journals (that's all the store category is for...).


Simple, elegant  NoxPlague  5 star

This app is a nice companion to your physical Bullet Journal practice. It is not a replacement or digital bullet journaling. I like the quick access to blog posts, the log, and the reminders. I would like to suggest making log easier to access, for some reason having it at the bottom of the list always takes me a while to find it. I think keeping the app clean, simple, and focused on supporting the physical bullet practice is the right direction.


No Refunds  MichaelJeffords  1 star

This app is absolutely pathetic. Ryder Carroll wants to take your money. I purchased this app on accident and tried to get refund, but couldn’t because they don’t offer the option. I would strongly advise against trusting Ryder, or any of his companies.


Waste of Money  ThaRoqitz  1 star

The hype I read about this app encouraged me to purchase it, which was mistake on my part. Lack of flexibility, customization, and ability to keep entries for more than 48 hours is ineffective. Don’t. Do. It.


Very useful  CynthiaBlue44  5 star

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!


Handy and bullet points  Voni86  4 star

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 have no idea why this exists  matthewsinclair  1 star

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 it but  kt_eleanor  3 star

Love the ap and BUJO but it's very expensive for minimal services. Honestly I could have just kept using Evernote for free


Not needed  Schmango1  2 star

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!


Great Companion!  LittletonTodd  4 star

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.


Great companion  TheGallagher  5 star

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.


New to Bujo  scraper46  4 star

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.

Harry Potter not me

Good at what it does  Harry Potter not me  5 star

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.


Love this.  ::$k3373r::  5 star

This App is great! Love its upgrades.


Love it!  LUCYMJ34  5 star

The app is a great companion to my Bullet Journal. It allows me to brainstorm on the go without having to take out a pen. I especially appreciate the scheduled reminders that pop up on my phone. It's helping me become more organized!


Needs Art Applications, Bland App  Love4each1  2 star

I was hoping for this application to have more. I mean for a fleeting thought... I could write that down quicker than I can type it in. Time limit on storage Makes me uneasy about keeping anything on this app. I appreciate the motivational additions, but truly feel this application offers nothing more than a tutorial.


Companion...  WirePalladin  4 star

To assist in making the best use of my analog bullet journal. I just wish it were a little more flexible for input... what and when I need to utilize it. Eventually would love to digitize my entire Bujo, not just the index. 🙂


Unexpectedly Useful  TerriPhD  5 star

I've just started using the Bullet Journal and both get this app as a way to learn how to use it but I am pleasantly surprised with how useful it is for journaling. It is chock full of great information plus handy tools to make quick notes on my iPhone to later write in my journal. This is not a replacement for the journal, rather it accompanies and compliments the Bullet Journal. Well worth the money


Very helpful  kay135  5 star

Very informative and fun to use. A helpful guide to bullet journaling. And a great way to record notes


The perfect companion to your bullet journal  Twofish2  5 star

Really clever and thoughtful support. Best productivity tool I've used. Take that GTD and TMI.


Bad value for money  SenanM  1 star

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.
