Another Beta Release

Productivity version 0.1 Beta is already up for download on Softpedia, and contrary to what was planned earlier, there will be another beta release before the final version comes out. Please do note that the beta version has some incomplete features, but whatever is done should work properly. If you encounter any errors, please submit a bug report by commenting.
The first thing you’ll notice in the next beta is the new UI. It’s a cleaner and more easy to use UI than before, and we’ve also included a Help section to help you get started (not that you’ll need it). Here’s the new UI:


The major reason for releasing another beta is that we wanted some more feedback about the app so we can make it the way you want.
The most significant development has been done to the ToDo List feature, whose UI has also changed a bit.
Unfortunately we can’t confirm a release date yet, but we’ll surely let you know soon:)

JournalBear 5.0 Beta 1 Released!

The first beta for JournalBear 5.0, the first version after the rebranding, is now up for download!

As mentioned in earlier posts, this version is more responsive and supports encryption. I will continue to build upon this version after user feedback. This version is cross-platform, so it'll work on all major operating systems.

You can download the software for your operating system from this link. While writing this post, only the Windows and Linux versions support 32-bit systems, and among Linux, only Debian-based distros, like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Elementary OS are supported.

Please do note that the app is still in its primitive stages--while I don't expect major bugs, there may be minor hiccups. The versions released so far don't have the JournalBear icon shown in the previous post.

Do share your feedback and any bug reports so that the software may be improved in future versions.

JournalBear 5.0 Beta Releasing This Week!

It's been a long wait, and after multiple UI changes and tests, I'm finally done with the first beta of JournalBear 5.0! 

As promised, this will be cross-platform, meaning it'll run on Windows, Mac, and Linux, both 32 and 64-bit, but it's restricted to Debian-based systems for now, which includes Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS.

Apart from the features you're used to from the previous version, Productivity 4.0, the new version uses AES-256 encryption, and makes it mandatory, so you'll have to use a strong password to encrypt your journal. After that, no unauthorized person will be able to look at your entries without the right password. The new version also lets you search by date. Entries can now also be styled, using either HTML or Markdown, both of which are easy to use. If you're comfortable with HTML, feel free to use a separate <style> tag for all your CSS. 

While we're on the topic of being new, there's also a new temporary lo…

Version 5.0 Coming Soon!

We're finally coming up with a newer version of the app! However, this update will only apply to Journal, and not affect the other products in Productivity.

As per current plans, we intend to release Journal as a separate app on its own, but users of Productivity will also get the new update.

The new Journal app is now cross-platform, which means it will run on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. We've rebuilt it from the ground-up, with a fresh new UI!


Apart from the same great features you're used to, the new version now encrypts your journal using AES-256 encryption, so you'll have to provide a password to open your journals. This keeps your private information safe.


Among other features planned, you'll also be able to now add multiple images to each day's journal entry.

Unfortunately, all these new additional features do mean that we now use a newer file format (.ejournal) instead of the older .journalx. The new format allows us to store more information, like addit…
