Most of you know by now the multiple ways to use JRNL to capture life’s moments. With features like email to JRNL, importing from Instagram, share extensions and replying to your reminder email, there are multiple ways to make sure you are capturing all of life’s “JRNL-worthy” moments. But what about the JRNL-worthy moments of a family member who isn’t interested in opening a JRNL account and doesn’t keep any sort of journal? How do you record and preserve those stories?
Let’s face it, we all have a lot going on in our day, so remembering to journal every day may not be at the top of our list. But if you want to make sure you stay on track with your JRNL’ing efforts, it is much easier when you take advantage of our Email Reminders. Users can set up a daily or every-other-day email reminder to help with personal accountability.
JRNL is pleased to announce their newest feature: Share Extensions. Share Extensions works in conjunction with the iOS app, and allows users to create quick journal entries, seamlessly. To utilize this feature, users must download the latest version of the iOS app, found in the app store, here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jrnl.com/id1036338627?mt=8
To create an entry through share extensions, you will need to open your camera roll, press select in the upper right hand corner, and choose which photos to include in your entry. Once you’ve selected which photos you want to share to your JRNL, press the share icon.
Collection of content from third-party sources is important to JRNL. So is the ability to curate that content and determine what is actually meaningful. Our first release of Social Importing is tied to Instagram. It is our first iteration and it will be getting better in the near future. To learn how you can include your Instagram photos/content into your JRNL, watch the video below.
JRNL believes in helping users build momentum in their journaling behaviors by allowing them to use the tools they use every day to capture meaningful content. Our goal is to make it easier for you to collect content in a seamless way. User feedback told us that being able to include photo attachments, and choose which journal your email appeared in would make this feature better. You asked, we listened. Our Email to JRNL feature now allows you to easily add entries to your journal(s), including photo attachments.
Our Email to JRNL feature can be found under Settings. To access Settings, click on the dropdown arrow next to your name in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
One of my favorite things about JRNL are the wallpapers. As corny as it sounds, the appearance of writing in a bamboo forest can help take a little of the edge off a stressful day. I usually keep a particular wallpaper for a while until I grow bored with it, or maybe the season changes (I had beach scenes all during winter). I also like the added bit of personality it brings to JRNL, it’s just a little way to help such a personal tool feel a little more “mine.”
