[prMac.com] Bremen, Germany - Juicy Cocktail today is pleased to announce Memories 1.8 for Mac OS X, a major update to its popular diary/journal application that allows users to create customized, daily text entries with embedded images, PDFs, sound, and video. Featuring comprehensive control over style and format, users can personalize each page with their choice of font, color, and alignment. Memories offers encryption of all contents, smart search, auto-save, and easy export. The update adds support for Retina-display Macs, sync via iCloud, and Notification Center reminders.
With a clean, redesigned interface, and enhanced layout of items on each entry page, Memories is among the easiest to use diary apps for OS X. Diarists can express their thoughts and feelings creatively, because the app allows them to write text while freely interspersing video, images, photos, PDFs, and sound.
