For centuries, diary has been seen as a tool of learning and reflection. Many studies have shown that not only diary is an excellent tool to capture author‟s thoughts and life experiences but also yield significant health benefits such as coping with stress and depression. However, in recent years, changes in lifestyle and boom of technology cause the practice of diary writing to fall out of favour. The fact that people are facing health problems often associated with work stress and lack of focus as well as organization indicates the need to preserve the culture of diary writing. Introduction of smartphone to the world opens up the opportunity to incorporate diary writing in the form of mobile application. In this research, the author discusses on the importance and value of expressive writing in diary writing that makes it a valuable learning and reflection tool. The interest of this research is to develop a suitable diary mobile application that matches the current lifestyle and enhance the experience of diary writing on the go as people are spending more time on their smartphone than ever. The scope of the study will be on Android operating system and the development will undergo incremental and iterative development based on modern mobile application architecture.
