So here, I’m happy to offer an official student/teacher discount of 60% from today onwards.

Please email us to with the following information.

  • Your full name
  • Proof of student/teacher status (scanned Id card with a visible expiration date)
  • Your registered account’s email address
  • Educational Institution
  • Country

We hope to serve you all better!. Your support means everything to us!

Thanks again for all of your support!

As promised, we are back with our latest update!
glimpses was built with a few core principles in mind and was not designed to tie up our users with their invaluable memories to a single platform. Earlier, our export entry feature was limited to a single PDF export.

We, here at glimpses, never intend to make our users feel restricted. We value your wish to keep your journal entries wherever you want, and use them whenever you want.

Today, we’re excited to announce a new update of glimpses v0.15.0.25338.
In this release, a long-awaited feature has finally been added — export all your entries. It allows users to export their entries in batches to plain text and JSON format, enabling users to access and import their journals into other applications. …
