Chat Journal – Timeline Diary with Pin/Fingerprint - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been a programmer for the past five years.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Keeping people's journal data secure and avoiding any data losses. Apart from that, the hardest part has been to make the app intuitive so that users find it simple and easy to use.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Apart from the apps I've built, I like the app 'Files Go' from Google. It's simple and does what it's meant to do.

How long have you been working on this app?

I've been working on the app for the past 1.5 years, did take a long break in between due to work related stuff.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

The reason I built Chat-Journal is that I couldn't stick with any of the Journal/Notes apps after trying out a lot of them. The need of the user (myself included) that I had in mind was simplicity, what inspired a chat-based notes/journal app was the fact that sending a text message to your friend is way less daunting than writing something down in your notes/journal app.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Chat-Journal takes a whole new approach to note-taking/journaling, it uses a one-of-a-kind chat-based mechanism to make the whole process less intimidating.

All the other conventional apps available in the Playstore/AppStore today present you with a blank screen which is discouraging, imagine if there were no instant-messaging apps and you'd have to send emails to your friends, you would rather reserve yourself from writing anything much in such a case.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Currently working on polishing the app and building a robust google drive backup system. I plan on creating an ios app in the future (and maybe even a web client).

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I'd request you to try out the app, I'm sure you will fall in love with the experience the app offers, and also share the app with your friends and family to help spread the word.
