Momento - App Review

The keeping of a diary, or journal, has been practised for centuries, without changing to any great extent. People kept records of what they did, interactions, and thoughts. Initially it was using pen/pencil and paper, and stayed that way for a very long time. Although no doubt a few people turned to typewriters when they became available, it was the advent of computers for everyone and smart phones (not to mention other devices) that made keeping a journal more of an electronic pastime.

The fact is that the XXIst century, for better or worse, has brought with it a dramatic change in the way we interact. What this App does is recognise that change and give you a tool for today.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The best way to start using the App is to go to Settings/Feeds and add the social media to which you post. You can then sit back and relax as masses (well, that kind of depends on you) of information is added to your diary.

You can now set reminders to act as prompts where you ask yourself a question on a daily basis, at a prearranged time.

You can now also create moments (journal entries) for today (or whenever). These are freely editable and work like a traditional diary.

This App costs a measly $1.

If you're already keeping a diary (or intend to start one) and you regularly post to social media then, this App will give you a fuller picture without any extra effort on your part.

Memento is an App designed for the iPhone (seems odd but, there you have it) which works fine on an iPad in 1x or 2x modes.

Memento allows you to create backups of your data and then also export as plain text.

The information on your social media are pulled into the App; this is not a two way process.

The App allows for the creation of a 4 digit pass code.
