I downloaded the bundle myself, and although I haven’t played around with MacJournal much, but I’ve got big plans for it. In fact, it was one of the big reasons why I bought the MacHeist in the first place.

I originally was going to just start hammering out docs in Pages and saving them in a special folder, but I quickly realized that would be a mess. I decided instead to look at journaling programs or something similar to keep track of my notes. Turns out that’s MacJournal in a bundle, so I got it.
