Think of MyScript Memo as a small notepad, meant to travel and carry short concise messages or reminders. It’s by no means a notetaking app — it’s not even a reminder app, as there are no alarms. It’s a no frills memo app, designed for simple phrases and sentences. What makes MyScript Memo different from other, more robust and highly functional apps is the touch screen writing pad.  Instead of inputting text using the keyboard, Myscript Memo users simply move their finger (or stylus) along the screen to draw their letters. It’s a more interactive way of writing memos, making users more apt to check their app frequently. When used daily to keep words, ideas, or brief to-dos from being forgotton, it’s a great app. But for repeating events, longer memos, and things that need to be neatly presented, we suggest another note taking or to do app. However MyScript Memo serves its purpose as a quick way to jot down an ideas. And it’s a great handwriting tool. The app features no inappropriate content and is recommended to users ages four and older.

This app is good for kids who need help with:


Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

download (3)You might not think that a memo app that encourages users to handwrite notes would be an organized app. There are note taking apps that dedicate their entire functionality to organization. MyScript Memo definitely makes it clear that organization is a priority. Users can choose from myriad text sizes and colors, as well as different variations of lined paper. This ensures each note is different, personalized, and suits the handwriting of the users. Once users jot what they needed to, they simply close out of the note, and it is saved under the bookmark tab at the top left part of the home screen. Users have access to delete, cut, and copy tools in addition to the eraser. It may not seem like much at first, but it is enough to make a clear, concise note, and have it stored in an organized fashion. The saved notes are listed by date, newest to oldest, so users can scroll down if they are searching for a particular item.


Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

MyScript-Memo-SettingsTrying to handwrite on a mobile phone or tablet isn’t quite as easy as it looks. It’s harder to keep a steady hand when using just the index finger to form letters than it is to hold a pencil. Users will have to be patient when writing their notes in MyScript Memo. There are many things to take into account even before putting the finger to the screen: the size of the margins, the height of the lines, the color of the paper, and most importantly the size of the font. Users who have smaller hands and finger will find it easier to write if they choose a smaller “ball point” text size. Users will larger fingers and hands might want to try a larger setting. And when they begin to write, users will soon realize that printing is the most legible way of writing using the finger. So take the time to write neatly.


Especially in today’s educational culture, as cursive becomes a memory, teachers find that most children struggle to write neatly. Myscript Memo offers a new take a handwriting, reinvigorating the subject through a mobile app. Handwriting can be a mindless activity, but when users try and print using MyScipt Memo, they are instantly more aware of the nature of their letters. Sometimes it takes seeing a subject like writing in a new context to thoroughly understand it.
