Good news! Apple approved the latest release of Maxjournal for the iPad today. You should see the update available sometime today in your iPad App Store updates.
This version adds so much to the table, we’re pretty excited:
Multiple Journals – add as many journals as your would like, each for a different purpose (Personal journal, vacation journal, etc… or for different people in your household). Each journal can be individual configured (Title, Password, Cover Photo and Background).
30 photos per day – including the ability to add photos directly to the text. Text Photos can be positioned, sized and rotated any way you would like, and the text will auto-wrap around your photos.
A new Day Bar (which replaces Day tabs). This allows you to more easily navigate through the days of a month, and allows you see at a glance which days have entry data.
Swipe Left and Right on a journal entry to move to the previous or next day.
A new App Icon.
A new Full Screen Calendar view which allows you to see a whole month at a time, with previews of the entries for each day. You can easily move the months and years of your journal from this screen, or jump to a specific journal entry.
Better full screen viewing of photos – the last version only gave you a small enlargement of your photos – this upgrade really uses fullscreen photo viewing. Lightbox has been improved also…
Added a Rating tag for each day. Rate your day from 1 start to 5 stars. You can search by Rating from the Search Popup.
Search by Text (now with Multiple Phrase capability), by Keyword Tag (now you just select from a list of all tags used), Rating, or by Most Recently Edited.
Change Time Stamps to only stamp the current time.
Better export capability with Simple Text, PDF or Secure PDF.
Backup and Restore has been improved and is much more stable! (the older maxjournal versions had problems Backing up Large journals with many photos.)
That covers most of the new features, though this list probably missed a few things.
We really hope you enjoy this release! If any problems, definitely get a hold of us – we’re hoping that the upgrade process goes smoothly for everyone, but if you have any difficulty with your journal data converting on upgrade please contact us. The upgrade process automatically makes a backup of your old journal data before conversion and places it in your iPad File Sharing area (Maxjournal.old). That way if something goes wrong you can send that file to us and we’ll convert it for you and send it back.
