Home for ideas and moments

Note-taking and daily journaling for iOS.

Elegant, simple, powerful.

Effortless journaling

Plain notes or diary

You can have journals of different styles for different purposes in one app: everyday diary with big, calendar-like dates, or structured storage of notes.

No account needed

Better Things doesn't require you to register on any service. For synchronization, you can use your iCloud account or export your entries to a local file.

Passcode and Touch ID

Secure your entries with a four digit passcode and Touch ID technology. You can set a passcode for the app or a journal.


Better Things will remind you to make a record - hourly, daily, or even yearly.

Collect and share


Get your data backed up on iCloud and synchronized across all your devices.


You can export your journals or individual entries to PDF or TXT formats. Also you can save your journals to a local file and import it at any time on any supported device.


Open your entries in another app on the device or get your entry's plain or formatted copy and send it as an email or message.

Capture and record

Images and sounds

Add as many images and audio recordings to your entries as you wish and preview them in the entry itself or in fullscreen mode.

Attachments browser

You'll find atachments from all your entries in the attachments browser.

Check and edit


It's easy to add to-do checklists to entries.


You can make text bold, italic or underlined. You don't even need to select a word - just tap it. Undo and Redo operations, conventional for every text editor, are also supported in Better Things.


Making a list, numbered or bullet-like, with an indent, is as easy as tapping a button.

Swipe cursor

In Better Things, it's easy to position the cursor in your entry: just slide your finger to the left or right to move it by one symbol.



Add any number of journals and easily switch among them. Each journal has individual sorting and grouping settings.


Organize your entries into folders and create hierarchies with as many levels as you could think of. Folders are optional so you can hide them and see a full list of the entries.


Mark and group your entries by assigning tags to them. Besides the name, every tag can have a color assigned so you could distinguish tagged entries easily.


Move entries to the archive or delete them permanently. There is an option for that.

Clean and uncluttered


Better Things makes note-taking nice and easy, thanks to the combination of minimalistic clean interface and rich functionality.

Dark mode

Better Things has support for themes including a dark one for night mode.

There's more...


Look into your past with the calendar.

Full-text search

All the content of your entries is indexed for faster searching in text and titles.

Sorting and grouping

Sort folders, entries, tags, attachments in many ways. Just tap the top bar and select preferences you need.

Date editing

You can edit creation and modification dates of your entries so it's easy to log events even a month after the events happened and still have the perfect timeline.
