G Memo:  iPhone App Written Review

G Memo for iPhone

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Here at the iPhone App Review, we’ve taken a look at one heck of a lot of productivity apps over the years. This isn’t a bad thing (we’ve certainly found some new ways to get stuff done) but it does mean that we’re somewhat of an expert institution within the field. As such, we can confidently say that we’ve never seen an app that offers what G Memo by developer Zain Dev does. The app allows you to stay on top of your own todo list while also helping your friends along with theirs. This has a lot of business applications, and above all of that, it’s simply cool. So without further ado, jump on down below the break to see our full review of this note-keeping app!

Concept and Functionality

At first blush, it may appear like G Memo is just any old other productivity app. However, it does throw you one curve ball right out of the gate. You see, you’ll need to sign up for an account with the service to use it. This takes only a minute, and requires only your phone number. Once that’s done, the app knocks you straight to setting up “Your Gs.” These are nothing more than todo list items, but they do come with a wealth of information. You can add a title, notes, a specific date, even the location. Once all of that is done, the note is saved and ready to roll. However, this is where things get interesting.

Once you’ve added a few G Memo sporting friends, you can freely send them your todo items, or ones you’ve created specifically for them. In this way, you can remind a friend that you’ve got a meeting later, or that you’d planned to see a movie. It’s quick, it comes with reminders, and it works like a charm. Ace work, lads!

Design and Interface

Thankfully, the app looks pretty sporty on the iPhone, too! We liked the use of bright colors, as well as the tabbed navigational controls that don’t simply hark back to traditional iOS stock faire. It’s a complex work, and one that looks absolutely stunning. We had no problems maneuvering our way around the app, and better yet, we encountered no issues sending out a memo to a friend. Overall, it’s a solid design that’s hard to find fault with.

Overall Value

G Memo will cost you a dollar in the App Store, which is a fair price. However, your friends will in fact need G Memo to receive your apps. There’s a free edition of the item, but it comes with fewer features. In other words, the app will be a dollar each pop, which is hardly too much to ask. So with that in mind, G Memo comes recommended for a personal and business setting.

G MemoG Memo requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
