The designers of STEP – Journal for Life have tried to create a mobile app that can act as a traditional journal and it looks like they have covered almost all possible areas from traditional journals. With the help of this app, users can create interesting diary entries in few simple steps. You don’t need to write anything if you don’t want to. This app is here to collect all external sources including social services and wearable devices as well as apps and smartphone sensors in order to create beautiful and attractive diary entries. In case users want to show their feelings about each of these important events they share in their journal they are able to add emoticons. With these emoticons you can add the true meaning of each event. For example, if you are part of some conference and you are on a break you can share few images, few social media statuses and add a bored smiley if you are feeling bored. With only few clicks you can import activities from other social services, share events from calendars and share current location. Instead of using words you can now keep a journal with images and emoticons.
