This is a short list of our most frequently asked questions. For more information about WriteDiary, or if you need support, please visit our support center.

What is WriteDiary?

knob WriteDiary is a free service to keep track of your past and think about your future. You can make predictions about what will happen and see if they come true, and you can see how you changed over time, and read over memories, having a few laughs. It's the funniest, quickest and easiest way to document your life through a series of notes. Tap down a note or a thought on your notebook, mobile phone or tablet and transform it into a memory to keep around forever.

How much is your app?

knob $0.00 - available for free in the Google Play store and our website www.writediary.com.

Where does the name come from?

knob When we were researching a nice name we decided that it had to be related to writing a diary, and both write.com and diary.com was not available for domain registration. So we figured why not combine the two?

How did the idea come about?

knob We like to be melancholy, writing daily notes and reading them over. We always assumed taking interesting notes required a big bulky paper books. But as mobile phones got better and better, smaller and smaller, we decided to challenge that assumption. We created WriteDiary to solve three simple problems:
  1. Traditional paper diaries not in your pocket at all times. A online and mobile diary makes it almost always accessable.
  2. Making copies and backup of your paper diary is a pain - write a note once, then access it (instantly) on multiple services.
  3. Most diary experiences are clumsy and take forever - we've optimized the experience to be fast and efficient.

What other services are you compatible with?

knob Going forward, we plan on supporting additional services but have nothing else to announce at this time.

Are you hiring?

knob We may in the future, but we have nothing to announce at this time.

I have a technical problem or support issue I need resolved, who do I email?

knob The best way to get in touch with us is to email us at support@writediary.com.

How does privacy work?

knob Privacy with us is very simple. Nobody can read your notes, except yourself. Nothing is "public" by default on WriteDiary. We do, however, plan to have a special "publish" and "share" option. In this mode, a user will be able to post and share diary entries to Facebook, Twitter or on his own public diary blog. But we have nothing more to announce at this time.

Who can see my entries?

knob All entries are private by default which means they are not visible or can not be read by anyone using WriteDiary.

knob We can send your all your notes to your email. You can then unzip this file and print as many as you'd like. You may also print any diary entry directly from the web browser.

When are you going to make the app for Blackberry, Windows Phone 7, iPad, etc?
