Quickly add notes to photos taken on your iPhone

Taking a picture to remind yourself of something later on is great in theory, but in practice often times there are details you don't remember; let Shot MeMo help you.

Having a smartphone, complete with a note app and camera was supposed to ensure we always had a quick way of recording something, be it through a photo or text, so we wouldn't forget it. Well, it all sounds grand, until you leave out some details in the photo, or forget to write down exactly what it is you needed to remember.

Shot MeMo, an iPhone app, allows you to take a photo and add notes to that photo, complete with date, time, and location.

  • After downloading and installing the app, you can jump right into taking a photo. You will notice that the bottom portion of the photo is obscured by a placeholder for the note. You can adjust the size of the note field before taking the photo by dragging the top bar of the note field up or down.

  • After taking the photo, you are then prompted to enter a note. Tap on Done when you are finished. From there, you can then share the photo-note to a list of social services, or save a copy of the photo to your Camera Roll.

  • You may notice, my note doesn't have the current date/time or location as I mentioned earlier. That's because I turned those options off in the settings beforehand, as it's not something I will need. Make sure to customize the app to your liking, including photo size and font.

The final product that is either shared or saved to your Camera Roll will look similar to what you can see above. The photo will have a border around it, with the note placed below it.

Shot MeMo is currently $0.99 in the App Store.
