The full version of All My Journals was released three months ago, back in early October. Since then, the response from users has been very positive and the download the sales ratio nothing short of outstanding. Try before you buy software has traditionally had a very low sales conversion rate, but All My Journals does not appear to be abiding by those rules, for which I’m thankful.
The only major new feature added so far has been the Journal Viewer, an oversight in the original release that quickly became apparent once users had written a few weeks of journal entries. I’ve deliberately kept new features to a minimum, as in the early days of new software, it’s easy to make mistakes and add features that would only benefit a small proportion of users.
What makes All My Journals unique is its simplicity – the lack of advanced features that serve only to clutter up a product for the majority of users – and I want to maintain that simplicity going forward.
New features will be added and changes will be made over time, but I expect this to happen very slowly and with great care. In the short to medium term, only one new feature is on the Must Have list, and that’s a bare bones spell checker. This is likely to appear in February and initially will only accommodate the English language.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all AMJ users for their feedback and support over the past few months, and to encourage you to tell your friends about it and spread the word.
