What is a digital diary?

Digital planners, also known as digital planners, are designed to look like traditional paper planners. They are available as PDF files , which you can import into a note-taking app on your tablet.

Unlike electronic calendars like the Google calendar or Notion, digital planners are intended to be used intuitively , like a paper notebook.

Although digital planners look a lot like traditional paper planners you can buy at a stationery store, they are available in PDF format on your iPad or tablet.

You can import these PDF files into your favorite note-taking app and customize them to your style. The best advantage of using a digital planner is that you can take it with you anywhere.

Digital planners also come with built-in hyperlinks, making it easy to navigate between different pages and tabs with just one click.

How to use a digital planner?

Here are the 4 things you will need to get started:

  1. A tablet or iPad
  2. A stylus for your tablet/iPad
  3. A note-taking application (available on the IOS or Android store)
  4. Templates in PDF format with hyperlinks, which you can find in our online store .

Note that our products are digital diaries and notebooks in PDF format, as well as digital stickers in PNG format. We do not offer software or applications for tablets or iPads.

To use our products (PDF or PNG files), you need to download a note-taking application to your tablet or computer via the IOS or Android online store. You can use our products with any application and on any device that supports PDF files.

Once you have installed the app and know how it works, you can purchase one of our digital products to get the most out of it.

Simply import the PDF documents or PNG images into your application to personalize them as you would with a paper planner.

Choosing a notes app

Before making a purchase from our store, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the note-taking application you wish to use and ensure that it is compatible with your devices.

Each application has its own features for annotating your diary or digital notebook. You can use a compatible stylus to write by hand by selecting the "pen" option or use the keyboard by choosing the "text box" option.

Our digital planners are designed with integrated hyperlinks that allow you to easily navigate between pages and different tabs with just one click! Most applications allow you to click on hyperlinks.

To use hyperlinks, you must put your note-taking application in “read-only” mode, for example with Goodnotes (our favorite application).

The choice of notes app is personal and depends on your devices. We advise you to test several applications on your tablet to ensure that it meets your expectations.
