We have 5 reviews for Penzu. The average overall ratings is 2.8 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: The provacy features are completely broken, and Penzu are ignoring my messages. The auto-lock functionality seemed to randomly not work until recently, when it seems after installing and then uninstalling the iOS app, the auto-lock feature on the website now does nothing. I have wasted so much time, please dont waste yours.
Overall Opinion: I signed up a basic (non-paid) account with Penzu about a week ago. After a couple days, I went to log in and my password wasn't working. I clicked on "Forgot Password", entered my email, and waited for their email to reset it. No response. I followed their directions to reset it again - no response. I've tried to reset my password eight times now over the last few days, with no response. There is no way to email them directly. I suspect if I had a Penzu Pro account I'd get better service, but as it is I can't even cancel my account because I don't know my password. Unless you go Pro, you might as well forget it, they don't want your business.
Overall Opinion: I am suddenly having problems with Penzu. It worked perfectly for one year and nearly three months, then a week ago the font changed, and it took me four minutes to get into my own journal. This morning I could get in at all. Help!
Overall Opinion: I have been using Penzu every day for close to seven years. IT is reliable, easy and fun to use. WHenever I have had a problem, the support team has gone out of their way to help. Your entries are safe and you can download the whole journal or select entries in PDF and other formats. It is not overburdened with features but it offers everything you could possibly want or need for a journal. I have read reviews of the app that are not only dead wrong but unfair. I have tried other journaling apps over the years but Penzu is top of the charts for me. I have logged seven years and more than one million words (no exaggeration) in Penzu and not once have I worried about the security of my journal. If you love to write, you'll love using Penzu.
Pros: - easy and fun to use with features that encourage the writing process. - simple and not over-filled with features that only serve to distract you from writing. - military-grade encryption. never worry about the security or privacy of your journal. - it helps you develop a daily writing habit. I don't think I'd have done it without Penzu. - well worth the modest price.
Cons: - they once had an option to write on a lined paper template but there's no option for that anymore. Could use more and better page templates. That is honestly my only gripe.
Overall Opinion: If you enjoy writing, then you'll enjoy using Penzu. This is more than just your average notepad app for keeping track of your thoughts, lists or messages that you want to send to other people. You can customize the pages of the journal that you make, giving it a title and including pictures as backdrops or on each page that you make. There are themes available, such as camping or waterfalls. Give your journal a name so that it's easily found if you want to make more than one. The app can be used to capture the special moments in your life as well as those that you want to share with family and friends. Entries can be posted to social media or shared through emails and private messages. When you start a new journal entry, you can include the date and the location as well as the time. Add pictures to the events that you write about. If you don't want to make a long journal entry, then you can make a short list of things that you want to accomplish or things that you need to do during the week or during the month. Fonts can be customized so that words look the way that you want them to, similar to the font options available in messages and on social media. Lock the journal to prevent other people from reading what you enter. You can tag people and places in the app to find them easily when you want to look back at what you've written.
Pros: Enter your thoughts in your personal journal Simple format to understand Personalize the pages
Cons: Entries can become backlogged Syncing errors
