What can you use the app for?

Diary.com provides users with an effective, fun way to mange their schedules and build a universal diary to use every day. Users can access Diary online and through mobile devices, which makes it easy to update their Diary anytime from anywhere. The Diary works by combining a calendar, to do list and journal into one application. Users can sync up Facebook, Outlook, Google Calendar and Twitter to fill in the gaps left by each. For example, Facebook doesn’t offer users a good calendar, but many users post event invitations on the site. Diary can pull the user’s invitation from Facebook and fit it neatly into their schedule, synching up all other calendars in the process. Users can also add notes through the journal feature which can be kept private or shared. The Diary allows users to manage private and social activities and even follow other things the user likes, such as upcoming film releases.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

The minds behind Diary.com are based in Shoreditch, London. They created Diary as a way to fill in the gaps left behind by other popular applications while giving users a convenient way to synch up all their profiles. The site is still in beta, but promises to be very useful now and in the future.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are easily hundreds of ways to keep schedules, write journals, and store personal and social information online. Diary gives users a better way to synch up all of this information. The application shares information posted by the user through Facebook with Google Calendars, Outlook and Twitter. The user’s profiles will remain completely up to date and they can choose to share notes or important dates with others.

Diary.com welcomes users with a fun, lightly colored style that gives it a more personal edge. Newcomers can clearly see that the site is intended for personal use. Synching accounts and adding notes to a Diary is very easy. Users can also access the organized Diary.com application using their iPhone.

How does the registration process work?

As soon as a new user visits the Diary.com homepage, they are greeted with the oversized registration fields. These are kept extremely simple, asking for an email address and password. After providing the information, the user can click the bright yellow “Sign up, it’s free” button at the bottom of the form. A small check box is automatically checked to sign the user up for Diary updates. The user must manually uncheck this before clicking the yellow button to opt out of email updates. The next step allows the user to create a personal profile, with a photo, date of birth, gender, and desired date and time format. This is an optional step and can be skipped if the user prefers. Next, the user is taken to their dashboard where they can begin adding their various accounts and using Diary features.
