Momento App - the easy way to automate a journal and document daily life
I’m going to start off by apologizing to Android users because this is only available in the Apple app store. If you have an Apple device, you are going to want to download the Momento app because it is a game changer! This is the tool that I have been looking for to help me document my life in a really easy way!
You can customize the way you use this app and make it into any type of journal you want.
But the best part is that the app can do a lot of the work for you! If you add feeds like your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, your activity there will be imported into Momento so everything is together in one easy to navigate space.
Here’s a few examples of how my days look in the Momento app. I didn’t do ANYTHING to record this information other than to connect my feeds when I set up the app. All of this happens automatically now and I can click on any of these images for full details. There are also many more notes that you don’t see here in these views.
I can even go back in time to see things that happened years ago because my connected accounts existed back then. I can also search my own “this day in history” by making different selections on the top menu bar. I can see Days, Months, Years, or This Day.
Of course, you can add your own entries at any time. You can type or use voice dictation (my favorite) to add your own journaling.
Here are a few of the great features in this app:
You can use this app for free, but you will be limited to single feed. It is only $2.49 a month to go premium and I think it is totally worth it. This blog post does a great job of explaining it all. You can also try the premium features free for a one month trial so you really have nothing to lose.
I’m already anticipating the question that most of you will ask - can it be turned into a book. The answer is no. You can export plain text and media if you are a premium user, but it won’t just translate into a book or project. That would be cool and maybe someday they will add that, but for now it seems a little tricky because there is so much that can go into this.
I do wish you could connect a calendar app to it like Google Calendar. Google Photos would also be great. Their Flickr integration is making me rethink deleting my Flickr account now.
I love that Goodreads, spotify, and YouTube can connect. I hope they will continue to add more feed possibilities.
If you start using this app, I’d love to hear what you think of it. I’m loving it!
