First Impressions: myDiary

Are you trying to read myDiary?

We recently reviewed the application myNotebook Carbon, Pearl and Tan, now out in America and soon to hit the virtual European shelves, and were quite impressed with it. Now the focus is on Nnooo's next release, myDiary for DSiWare. What can we expect from the next instalment of the myLifeCollected series? Our man Brad Long spills the beans from his visit into Nic Watt's inner sanctum.

The first feature that myDiary brings to the table once you've got the calendar up on screen is the ability to write notes for any day of your selection. Choosing which one you want to look at is accomplished by simply tapping the stylus on the day that you want to check out. myDiary is capable of holding up to 400 notes, meaning that it's got more than enough space to write one for every day of the year if you choose to do so. For the sheer size of the notes, however, comes the cost of not being able to use more than one colour for each, though it does give you the choice in which colour ink in which you're to write.

myDiary also allows you to lock your notes with a four-digit pin, so anyone who happens upon your DSi won't be able to look at what you've got hidden, handy for such things as birthday surprises and Corbie's bank account details.

Lastly, there is an alarm feature that goes off even when the DSi is in sleep mode, great for those who'll be keeping the application open throughout the day, which is what this program is all about.

myDiary is set to release later in the year, after the three lots of myNotebooks. We will be sure to bring you a more accurate release time and price point once information becomes available.

Please note, the version of myDiary played is not the final version, and features may be subject to change.
