I am intrigued by the app Memento. Tell me how you use it. Is it more work? Does it help?

Is that a camera app? I just looked it up on my phone app store and wasn't sure which one you were talking about. Looks good, but there are no reviews.

I love it. I use it all the time.

I have it connected to my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so all my updates to all three show up there. It is nice to be able to look at those and know what I posted and when.

I will add a separate entry to put some notes/thoughts/feelings about my day that I don't want to put on social media. I do that several times per week usually, whenever I want to remind myself of something that happened (good or bad).

I also will add a separate entry just for pictures most days. I do have the project 365 app, but often I have multiple photos per day, and putting them in as a note helps me remember which photos were taken when.

I use to help me keep track of things I might want to include in PL.

It's like a notepad on your phone. You link in photos as well if you want.

You can also set up feeds from your other online accounts like twitter and Instagram to feed into momento so you can save those as well but you can't publish momento moments eg on twitter.

I like it and would recommend it.

I chose Momento instead of Day One or other similar apps because of the linking feature. It collects my Twitter, IG, And FB posts and sorts them by day. When I come up with a day I'm not sure what to fill with I just go there and find a photo or post about something that happened (hopefully!) that I can include.

It also allows me to see everything from one day all at once before I choose or print photos and I can decide which things are most important to include

Thanks for the thumbs up. I realize its only a $3.00 app but I had to get something and later find it was a waste.

I use it because of the linking as well. I like having everything in one place. I also set a daily reminder on my phone asking me if I have any thoughts to add for the day. Some times I get busy and forget to record things, so that helps me to take minute and add anything I'd like to remember that happened during the day.

Do you do this through the app or through your phone reminders?

I like Momento. I only have it on my Touch since it's not available on the iPad and I use Android. So I don't remember to add to it as often as I should.

I find this app to be priceless! I use it all the time to record funny things my kids say, and when I'm behind on project life it is so easy to find out what happened by my instagram/facebook feeds.

I also add in every time I take photo's with my big camera that I intend for Project life. For some reason the date is off in my camera and I can't seem to fix it. This way I can remember where those pics go too.

Love it! I have my FB and Instagram linked and I also use it to write down notes or quotes from the day. So great to be able to go back and look at it for PL!

I had this for awhile and found that I was never using it... but after reading about making notes of the cute things the kids say, I think I'll give it another shot
