Your iPhone can be a valuable companion to recount all that you do whether it’s in the form of photos, location tracking, or quick jotting down of notes. Memoir is a new app that automatically creates a photo journal, so you can remember all that you do with no effort at all. The app grabs the photos from your camera roll, and can also integrate photos from Facebook, Instagram, and your Mac to have one place for all of your photos. Memoir builds up a photo collection that you can then scroll, or search through to relive memories that are important at the current moment. It does this by targeting dates, Facebook friends, and Foursquare locations to show you relevant photos from the same day last year, with a particular friend, or at a specific location.
All of the aggregation, and sorting is done automatically, but you also have the option to go back, and customize any entry. It’s your Memoir after all, so you can remove any photos you don’t want included, and even add in some others. There’s also the option to manually enter in normal text based journal entries enhanced with locations, and photos to flesh out your photo journal with a few more details. You can share any of your Memoir entires as well, and have friends share photos with you to add to your Memoir for a little friendly collaboration. Your entire photo journal is backed up to the Memoir cloud, so you never lose it after the initial creation. Since the app focuses on photos, it’s great to see an iOS 7 style design with a borderless flow of photos from previous days accented by a translucent background.
Memoir (Free, iPhone) is a neat way to keep a photo journal that does all the work for you to help you relive your memories.
