Version 3.86




In My Diary is an easy to use, traditional looking, free, multi-language, personal diary application to help you organize all your upcoming tasks and events, store your passwords, keep track of notes, keep financial accounts and manage your contacts.


Available for all Windows systems, Apple Mac (32bit only), and Linux (native or wine). Friendly, traditional diary interface.



The diary supports one-time and recurring events with customizable colors, linked notes and early alert options. You can also configure the application to send you email reminders, using your own mail server or the provided SMTP service. In addition to diary entries, you can use In My Diary to keep a daily journal, store your passwords as well as personal notes. The program also integrates a contacts database with optional birthday reminders and label printing features. Other features include support for import/export (iCal, vCard), keyword search, built-in password generator, anniversary and special event options, and more.


In My Diary has been developed by Kevin Edwards, a retired teacher and musician living in Yorkshire, England. Please use the contact address given to make comments or suggestions or just offer a simple 'thanks' if you find the program useful.

My aim when setting out to create this diary, and my continuing aim as its facilities have gradually increased, has been to present the user with a product that, on the surface, just looks like a standard simple paper diary. Although it is of course much more you can, if you choose, operate it exactly like that: turn off audible and pop-up alarms, and it becomes no more than a simple diary where you click over the day you want to add something and type in the box and save.


For those that need more, you can create To Do lists that constantly remind you everyday what tasks still need to be done, warn of forthcoming anniversaries and events (with email reminders also), store all your contacts, store all the passwords you use elsewhere in one secure place, keep a daily journal, set tasks to run on your computer automatically when required, use as a memory-aid clock for those with dementia related illnesses etc. etc. It is up to you how much or how little of its facilities you choose to investigate but, however you use it, I hope you find the diary to be useful.
