    It was never my intention to start frequently using the preinstalled 'Mimi Diary' app. Had I realized that I would by now have around 70 or 80 entries, I would have used a more flexible alternative from the Market.

    Does anyone know of any way, should I change phones, that I could extract that data from this app in a way that would allow me to read the diary, say, on my PC?

    Thank you.

    I know this is old, but it was a first hit on google. Anyway sqlite can read mini_diary.db. Maybe someone else has a less technical solution, but here goes:

    root then browse to:
    data/data/com.sec.android.app.minidiary/databases

    copy mini_diary.db to a PC somehow (copy it to the DCIM folder the grab it with a USB cable like you do for pictures)

    download the sqlite command line utility from SQLite Home Page

    I made a folder called c:\sqlite> and put the files in here (sqlite3.exe and mini_diary.db)

    c:\sqllite>sqlite3.exe mini_diary.db

    sqlite>select * from diary
    this will show the data

    maybe some java programmer out there can get the jdbc driver and make a piece of source to extract to a csv then you can open with excel or libre

    OK Guys try this.
    You need root access.

    Before you factory reset.

    Go to dbdata--->data bases--->com.sec.android.app.minidiary---> copy mini_diary.db to your SD card.

    Factory reset.

    Go back in and replace the .db file with the one you saved and reboot phone and all should be well.

    NB: if you get an error message saying "insufficient memory" when trying to write a new diary entry reboot your phone again.

    I was so glad when this worked, I'm sure you guys will be too.
