Maintaining a diary is always a good habit as it helps us recording our memories, our experiences and our perceptions along the way of life. I was struggling with paper and pen to maintain my personal diary before I started using the interesting app ‘Efficient Diary. After getting habituated to the laptop, filling long pages of my diary was not really a preferred option. Efficient Diary is an absolutely free, while still fine-looking, simple and useful electronic diary software package.
