I run my own business and take care of my family single-handedly. I have two teenage sons, and a two-year-old daughter. I lost my husband to an accident a few years ago, and the responsibility of the family and the business now rests on my shoulders.
As a mother of three children, there are so many things that I would like to give them. This not only includes taking care of their basic needs, but I have always felt that they need to have a part of me even after I am gone. Losing my husband was quite hard on all of us, and made us realize that even little things matter. This thought was running through my mind for quite some time, and that’s when I found STEP – Journal for Life on the App Store.
STEP Journal is an app that gathers scattered moments of your life on your behalf, and converts them into an amazing story. It’s just like writing your diary, but on the app the events are added automatically and it’s more exciting than just words on a page.
All you need to do is keep your STEP Journal synced with other apps that you use on a daily basis. I, for instance, use my fitness app, my camera roll, my social networking apps, my calendar, and GPS on a regular basis. By keeping all these apps synced with STEP Journal, all the information-the location on my GPS, birthdays and anniversaries from my calendar, pictures from my camera roll-and everything else gets automatically updated to my journal. With STEP Journal I don’t have to go through the effort of writing everything. It saves me a lot of time and gives me a pretty well-organized diary with fun pictures and emoji at the end of the day.
I share my journal with my kids, and this lets them know how special they are to me. The features of the app that my kids love are the use of emoji, and pictures that create that exciting look and feel every time we read through the journal. We have a small tradition where everyone in the family gets to jot down their thoughts as pictures, or as words. My sons like to be expressive through their funny pictures, while my little one likes to bring her ideas to the screen through emoji.
My family and I have been using the app for a few weeks now, and we have been having so much fun with it. I hope STEP Journal brings that happiness to your life, just the way it has done for mine. 🙂
