Welcome to DiaryZapp the award winning journal app for children aged 4-10. We have combined the world of apps and gaming to bring journaling into the 21st century, creating an app that is loved by parents and teachers and is the perfect app to help keep children learning outside school.

DiaryZapp allows children to record their experiences through drawings, photos and writing. 

Top reasons for kids to keep a journal include:-

  • It encourages children to reflect on their emotions and actions in a safe place
  • Boosts writing ability and depth of vocabulary
  • Encourages creativity
  • Reduces learning loss over school holidays
  • Promotes happiness and self esteem
  • Develops health habits for life and nurtures enquiring minds
  • Promotes positive screentime

To children get started with their journal, children create their own Zappicon character to guide them through the app. Rewards are unlocked as children expand their vocabulary and write regularly. Moving on, children can share their diary pages with friends and family in a parent controlled network.

Designed by a family for families to use, there are no ads or no in-app purchases. Positive screen time, just the way you want it.



When your child becomes an official zapper they will meet their very own Zappicon, who needs a cool name, and to be styled.

Zappicon’s are your child’s best friend in the app. They’re itching to help create the best diary ever, sharing helpful hints and tips on how to earn extra points!


Behold the mightiest of dens, the fantastic fish finger sandwich, the grins on grandpa and the coolest of airplane flights.

When your child is zapping, every day is an adventure. And, if they don’t feel like writing about their day, they can draw and paint with our extensive toolbox instead.

Picture the scene: you’re around the dinner table discussing your day and suddenly your child comes out with a word that impresses you when they’re describing their day.

They’ve unlocked cool creative stuff and mascot bits so they’re happy, sorry, ecstatic! 



Every child’s diary is a special place to save treasured memories, however, it’s also a quick and easy way to share their news.

From sending Grandma a picture by the pool, to showing their newly decorated bedroom to a happy aunt, you can stay in touch with the ones you love.
