PRO version

The PRO version of Journalistic is still in the making. Until it is available, all PRO features (marked with a PRO badge) are free to try for everyone.


Please keep in mind that, once the PRO version is released, you'll lose access to all those marked features unless you upgrade to the PRO plan.


What's included in the free version?

The idea is that you get a great journaling experience with Journalistic even if you can not or do not want to pay for a PRO subscription. BASIC accounts will have access to all essential modules (Reflect, Dreams, Highlights, Tags & People, Notes, Wisdom, Ideas) and will be able to write, sync, and access entries without limitations.

Features for more advanced usage and related to personal development like timeline charts, insights, etc. will be available only to paying customers.

Which features are exclusive to PRO users?

Here are the PRO features that are already available in the app for testing and the list of planned features that will likely come to PRO users at some point. The lists are not 100% final and might still change slightly.

Already available

  • Timeline charts (for dreams, highlights, tags, mentions, etc.)
  • Insights module
  • 7-day streak indicators for entries
  • Reflect Pins (30-day tag mini stats)
  • Do more/less markers for tags
  • Focus module
  • Guinea pig mode (access to beta features)


  • Images
  • Multiple journals
  • Shared journals
  • Optional end-to-end encryption
  • Dream notes and flags
  • Additional features for Idea management
  • API access
  • Alternative themes

How much will the PRO version cost?

You can find the most up-to-date pricing model for the PRO plan on the home page under "Pricing". But please note that it might be subject to change until the final release.

The goal is to establish a fair pricing model that reflects the value the app generates and which works for both users and developers.

The PRO version will definitely be subscription-based (monthly, and maybe annually) and there will probably be discounts and/or benefits for early users.

Why should I pay anyway?

Few things are truly free. Most likely, you pay for the "free" products and services you use with personal data, attention, time, or the like...

We do not sell any of your data and we do not display any ads, yet developing, running and maintaining our services is expensive. These are the costs you pay for as PRO user.

You can see it this way: the more users subscribe to the PRO version the more time and budget we have to improve Journalistic further.

When will the PRO version be released?

Unfortunately, the origial target release date of Q4 2022 keeps getting pushed back since it depends on many external factors (e.g. Google Play payment regulations) as well as high internal demands on delivering a flawless product to users.
