Share This Post

In this article, we’ll try to build an exhaustive list of all the existing and working apps to write down your dreams.

Oniri (iPhone only)

Screenshots of Oniri

Oniri is one of the oldest app to record your dreams. It’s been launched over seven years ago (in 2015) and has been growing steadily ever since. It is developed by a small team based on Switzerland let by Jean-Baptiste Beau. He started Oniri as a side business and turned it into his full-time job as the app’s user base grew.

Oniri’s features have been designed in partnerships with dream-related labs to help its users to interpret their dreams in a scientific way and to have their first lucid dream faster. Some key features include:

❤️

What we love

Oniri’s design is just beautiful and the team built some special features that just make the experience magic such as the ability to record voice notes of one’s dreams and to export those dreams (different formats available: PDF, video, …)

😅

What could be better

A lot of people would love to use Oniri on Android and even though a waiting list for the android version exists, no release date has been published yet.

💰

Pricing

Oniri comes with a free plan that lets you write down as many dreams as you want and a premium plan ($48 per year with a two week trial) that gives you access to lucid dreaming features, voice notes for dreams and much more.

WorldWithin (iPhone and Android)

WorldWithin is a small German company that has built a dream journaling app with a focus on Lucid dreaming. Their app also includes courses and some gamification features to help you stick to your routine and go through the effort required to have your first lucid dream.

❤️

What we love

The WorldWithin team is very active on social media and does a great job at explaining what lucid dreams are and to spread awareness about them. The app is also intuitive and enjoyable to use.

😅

What could be better

Worldwithin’s app is really optimized for mobile devices and works poorly on iPad and desktop. Not ideal for someone who wants to use it on their computer or tablet.

💰

Pricing

WorldWithin comes with a free plan and a premium plan at $70 per year or $13 per month which includes additional content such as courses, sleep stories and dream meditations.

Dream Journal Ultimate – (iPhone and Android)

Dream Journal Ultimate, as its name implies, is a simple dream journal app with a social twist. Indeed, besides storing your dreams privately, you can also share them with other app users who can then comment on your dreams. It’s a fun way to discover what other people dream about. The app has not been actively worked on in recent months but some dreams are still shared with the community on a daily basis.

❤️

What we love

Dream Journal Ultimate is rough and basic. We love to social aspect of being able to read other people’s dreams, but that’s pretty much it.

😅

What could be better

The app is very simple and hasn’t been updated in a while. The design is also a bit simple and not very intuitive.

💰

Pricing

The app is free.

Awoken – (Android only)

Awoken is a dream journaling app and lucid dreaming toolkit for android only. It has over 500 thousand downloads but hasn’t been updated in years, some features having recently broken down. It is developed by Andreas Rudolph who’s working on it as a side project.

❤️

What we love

Awoken was built by a solo developer, an Indie hacker so to say. It’s always exciting to see a one man crew build an app that gets over half a million installs.

😅

What could be better

Unfortunately, it looks like Andreas moved on and has stopped supporting his app, which is slowly breaking down. The interface is also quite rough.

💰

Pricing

The app is free
