What Is It?


Shot MeMo is a photo note-taking and sharing app. You can select images from your photo album as well as take images within the app.

Is It Easy To Use?


Yes, it’s like child’s play to use and if you are having trouble the built-in tutorial will soon set you on the straight and narrow. Select the camera icon to take images within the app, once you have taken the image you can resize it (physically) within the app too Then just jot a note in in the note section below the image. You can change the font, centre and justify the text, as well as changing the background color/frame to the image and note. It is also possible to Geotag each image as well, although if you’d rather not, you can switch it off in the Settings.

If you’d rather select an image from your photo album just select Album in the menu and you will have access to any of the images you have taken. Select the one you want and follow the same procedure as above. There also an option to select the size of the image to be saved, either small 0.1 M, Normal 0.1 M, Big 0.2M or Original.

Once you’re happy with the image select the Share icon to share on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Evernote, Flickr or email.

Is It Fun?


Absolutely yes, it’s a breeze to use and is great fun.

Is It Pretty?


We think so, it’s very easy to navigate as well and there are plenty of additional instructions within the app too.

Should You Download It?


Yes, it’s good. There are some in-app purchases, but only for alternative backgrounds and the app does come with a comprehensive supply so you won’t feel under pressure to spend any more money.

It works well, we did not find any bugs when we tested this app and the results speak for themselves. A great little app to have on your iPhone, download it today.

The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.
