    Life is more than just words!

    There's color, sound and imagery and you can put all of it into your journals with MacJournal. A Media Browser is included which allows you to select a favorite song from iTunes, a photo from your Pictures library - even a YouTube video - and add it to an entry.

    • Drag items onto main window
    • Drag items onto dock
    • Select items through menu
