MemoMa is a notes app that you can write your memos, ideas, journals, or any kind of text directly into your iPhone calendars. You can add a note very quickly by tapping a plus (+) button, and your note will be registered with a time stamp. You can also add a calendar event using MemoMa.

You can start your day by checking MemoMa’s today’s view. That is where the app starts when you launch it. It shows all of your notes and events for the day. Everything you write is displayed on your timeline, so you don’t have to expand each item. Scroll through the day with your finger to learn all the details, including addresses, emails, URLs, whose hyperlinks can lead you to external resources. If you want to copy one of your notes or events, long press it and the text will be copied to the clipboard.

You can move to another day by swiping left or right, or by specifying a date. If you have difficulty finding a specific note or event, expand the view to a week, a month, or a year.

A full text search not only helps you find a specific note or event, but tells you how many entries fit your criteria for a specified period. And, it can be displayed in both chronological and reversed chronological orders. It helps you track down how many times you’ve had a certain activity, and lets you know when it happened the first as well as the last time.

What MemoMa Can Do:
– Create and edit plain text notes with date and time stamp.
– Create and edit calendar events.
– View entire texts for a given period (e.g., a day, a week, a month or a year) without having to open each event or note.
– Copy a note’s or event’s detail to clipboard.
– Hyperlink addresses, URLs and phone numbers to launch external apps.
– Full text search within given period (up to a year).
– Search results in chronological and reversed chronological orders.
– Create notes and events off-line.
– Change text size through system settings.

CAUTION: MemoMa has the following limitations:
– Cannot insert image, video, audio or other multimedia content.
– Cannot change fonts or format rich text.
– Alarms, reminders and invitations are not supported
(it can be set but, the functionalities are delegated to iPhone’s main calendar app)

– Tips for most of features. The tips reappear until you dismiss them.

• Sometimes spilling ideas into a word processor isn’t enough. Bubbles is a visual and interactive way to record your ideas the way you imagine them. Bubbles allows you to put photos, text, drawings, graphs, and audio into a single workspace, giving your ideas the visual and dynamic space they deserve.

Each photo, drawing, graph, recording, or bit of text is put into a bubble. In a web of bubbles, there are no rules; a web of bubbles could tell a story, describe a concept, troubleshoot a problem, or anything else an idea could lead to.

Communication is more than language. Bubbles puts content into a space that brings clarity to the communication of ideas. Visual maps of photos, drawings, graphs, recordings, or text puts your ideas in a space that feels natural, yet it is unlike anything that exists. Bubble webs offer the creative opportunity of a sketchbook, the content of a web page, and the engagement of a video game. •

Guitar Handbook

Normally $0.99.

Learn hundreds of guitar chords with live playback. Great for jazz and songwriting in any key. Fret number, note name, chord tone and atonal theory display modes available. Guitar tuner included.
• Guitar Handbook is a tool for learning hundreds of variations of essential guitar chords. These chord voicings/inversions offer colorful new ways of playing chord progressions.
• Tap the chord name to hear it plucked, or strum the notes individually for live playback.
• The app focuses on 4-note 7th chords which include the Root, Third, Fifth, and Seventh with no doubled notes (i.e. CMajor7, Aminor7, G7, etc).
• These chord shapes are all movable, which means you can slide them up or down by any number of frets to play in all keys.
• There are no barre chords, so these voicings require less hand strength than traditional barre chord voicings which often use all six strings at once, with one finger pressing down multiple notes.
• The chords are systematically organized into three “string sets” of four strings each – the lower four, middle four and upper four strings (i.e. EADG, ADGB, DGBE).
• Jazz guitarists wishing to expand their vocabulary of jazz inversions and improve their understanding of chord theory will find this to be a useful practice or teaching tool.
• A convenient guitar tuner is available within the app.
• Chord variations on the upper four strings can be used for Ukulele, and the lower four strings apply to bass players.
