Email a memo 7

by Adam Marks Thu, 03 Feb 2011 3:53 pm EST

The stock Memos app allows you to quickly write notes for yourself, but unlike the old PalmOS Hotsync there is no easy way to get your memos off of the phone. And, while these memos get backed up to your Palm Profile, it’s also a good idea to keep an offline backup for any of your important memos. The best way to do this is to email yourself a copy of the note, which is easy to do for individual memos. Just open up the Memos app and tap on a memo (you can also start typing within the memos app to search your memo). Once opened, swipe down from the top-left corner of the screen to bring down the Memos Application dropdown and select "Email Memo…". This will open up a new Email message with the memo's text in the body of your email, so all you need to do is address the message. Unfortunately, there is no "mass email" option, so you have to do this one-by-one.

In general, the ability to go seamlessly from handheld to desktop is one of my great disappointments in the webos software.

With my old palm pilot and TX, I found I came to depend more on the desktop software than even my handheld. That was unexpected. When I'm working at my desk, who wants to pull out my phone?

Now, I have my calendar and contacts in the cloud through Google (works well and syncs seamlessly). But memos, which I use CONSTANTLY have to be synced through Chapura echo, which works great, but is expensive.

Of course on the old TX, I had to sync my calendar and contacts with Google through a paid subscription to Goosync.

MY wishlist for an app would be an excellent program that synced cloud, pre, and desktop. Even Chapura can only do it on one machine and they have to share a wireless network. Since my work computer is wired, it doesn't work. And it won't sync through bluetooth. Google docs could potentially sync with memos, but doesn't. I'd be happy with a cloud memo function.

HP - you listening?

This was an aweomse find, when I was thinking if I can email the memo two months ago and there it was in the drop down menu. Seriously Palm though of everything with WebOS and that's why I am sticking by it as I see it as the best mobile OS hands down!

This tip simply adds insult to injury--I echo nxd10's comments above: how the hell can WebOS lack the ability to sync Memos/Notes?! I use Companionlink and it syncs my Calendar and Contacts just fine, but Palm and/or Google won't allow Memos/Notes to sync.

Drives me crazy!

I simply moved on to Notes by Inglorious Apps. Works great and it syncs automatically with Google Docs. Problem solved. I now have my Notes on my phone and can access them from a desktop or laptop anywhere in the world.
