Journal eXpress is not a dayrunner. There we said it, got it out of the system. That feels better.

Here are some key features of "Journal eXpress":
Personal Diary for eXpressing ones thoughts (protected too)
Time Stamp your entry (click the clock and the time is inserted for you)
Change the type Style (plain, bold, italic and underline)
Use any font installed on your computer
Select a font size of 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 24 point
Select from nine built in colors
Event Manager (shows your events on a calendar)
Cycles - like a shift workers schedule or repeating schedule
Day - an event that only happens on a specific date for "x" number of days
Yearly - same time each year, like a birthday
Monthly - either a specific day each month, or specific weekday of the month

Personal Address Book (share entries over a LAN network)
Send any entry to any other computer on the LAN with a mouse click
Print envelopes
Create as many custom categories as you want for entries
Make FIND as simple or as complex as you want for searching
Quick Tab find with Rolodex style tab buttons

Five Day Weather Forecast
Get a five day advance forecast for most major cities and towns in U.S, Canada and various locations throughout the world (requires an active internet connection).

ToDo List
To Do list with checkboxes so you know when its done.
Rearrange the order of items with click and drag
Add details notes to ToDo items for additional information
Print your ToDo list (won't save the fridge this way)

LAN Copy your Data
All computers running Journal show in the Address Share popup
All computers running Journal show in the Backup menu so complete Journal files can be sent across your local network (not internet) without the requirement of any special software. Makes moving files from computer to computer a breeze.

Chat with other Journal eXpress users on the same LAN (local area network).

HOTD (Humor of the Day)
Choose to have an Inspiration Message of the day (or not..:-).

Journal is a shareware program. You get to try before you buy. Hence, all functions will work as stated in the help portion of the software but you will be limited to thirty diary entries and eight event entries. There are no "beg" messages or annoying startup times.

What's New:
Import Apple Addressbooks entires
Fixed a bug for certain CDN holidays in the display
Adjusted the envelope printing to be more robust.
