Navigating the New Journal Feature in iOS 17.2: A Beginner’s Guide and Improvement Suggestions

1 min read

Apple’s Journal app is available in iOS 17.2, but it’s rather barebones. The app has a simple interface with a big plus symbol for adding entries, and it introduces the Suggestions API. Although Journal is integrated deeply into iOS, it lacks features such as Siri integration, a widget, and Shortcuts. Additionally, it is only available on the iPhone and is not coming to the iPad or the Mac until after WWDC 2024. Yet, despite its limitations, Journal is appealing and prompts users to write with its suggestions and notifications. Furthermore, it is from Apple, meaning users will not lose their data. Overall, while Journal has some notable omissions, it is a good app for journaling and may attract users who have never journaled before.
