Gizmos & Gadgets: New Memoir App for your Smartphone

December 11, 2013 – Do you keep a diary? I did when I was a lot younger but not today. My daughter continues to keep a diary and goes back to read her entries. In fact on vacations she often brings her diaries as reading material.

But now anyone can use a new app for smartphones called Memoir. Available for iPhones and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, users can download the app for free from Apple’s AppStore.

What does Memoir do? It takes your photographs, the places you visit, social media content and makes it available to you alone to add information, edit what’s there or delete those non-memorable moments. When you visit a place you have been to previously Memoir will remind you of it. Hang out with people you haven’t seen in awhile and Memoir will bring you up to speed on your last visit.

You need to have already downloaded iTunes to run Memoir. Once you give it permission to access all your information on your phone, desktop and in the cloud (Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networking sites) Memoir connects all the dots.
