Better Diary is a free Android diary app with HTML, geotagging, moods, emoticons, fonts, themes, languages, PIN protection, calendar view, reminders, weather info, and lots of other options. You can also choose to share you diary with anyone who is also using the same app by just one tap.
As I said this app supports HTML formatting, so you can choose to use the HTML formatting options like Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, Quote, Bullets, Text alignment, Heading 1 (H1), Heading 2 (H2), Undo, and Redo.
Apart from HTML formatting, the app includes various organization features, print, share, photo album viewer, time stamp, and ability to create multiple diaries within the app.
