Diaries have been around for a long time. You use a diary to record present thoughts so you can look back on them in the future.
The “Back Diary” is where you record your past and present thoughts so you can look back on them in the future.
A regular diary starts when you start the diary. If you start the diary on May 1, 2015, the first entry of the diary will be May 1, 2015.
A back diary starts when you are born. If you start the diary on May 1, 2015, the first entry of the diary will be when you were born.
A back diary works the same as a regular diary, but it also enables you to enter memoir contents to previous dates. Each day you can make an entry for the present, but you can also make entries into the far past. For example, you can go back to your back diary entry for September 11, 2001 at any time and enter your recollection of that day.
As a software app, you should be able to attach any type of media to your back diary, similar to how you attach media in Evernote. For example, you can dig up pictures from August 8, 1992 and attach it to that date in your back diary. That way, the back diary becomes a chronicle of your entire life.
The purpose of back diary is so you can search back on your life. This can come in very useful. Can’t remember when you bought your refrigerator for warranty purposes? Search it in back diary. Can’t remember when you moved to your current home? Search it in back diary. Can’t remember the address of your childhood home? Search it in back diary. Can’t remember the name of that amazing Thai restaurant you ate at when you were visiting New York on the summer of 1997? Search it in back diary. You get the point.
Back diary is like Evernote, but with an emphasis on chronology.
