Memo is a simple and elegant app for quickly jotting down notes on your macOS and iOS.
Memos are like sticky notes on your computer screen (minus the residue). Pop open a new memo in less than a second and use it to jot down phone numbers, messages, meeting notes, or write down ideas before you forget them. You can assign different colors to your memos to visually set them apart. Choose from yellow, red, green, blue, or purple. The Memo app supports rich text in dozens of font families.
Is your computer a shared one, or public space? Create a Memo password and choose the memos you want to lock. Locking a memo keeps it displayed on the screen but hides the content until you unlock it.
Additional features include:
- Touch Bar Support
MemoPremium is an auto renewable subscription:
- Unlock memos even more quickly using Touch ID
- Sync memos across Macs via iCloud sync
- Set memos to auto-lock after a set interval
- Differnt Color Memo
- Online Auto Backup
$0.99 monthly, $9.99 annually

Ratings and Reviews
Stickies with Syncing
It’s exactly what I was looking for, a stickies that syncs over the air so I can keep my desktop and laptop synced together. All the other note taking apps are too bulky for me, and I just wanted the different color window stuck to the side with the things I need to keep myself reminded about. That’s it, and that’s exactly what this does. Works well.
Not want I was looking for, Changes didn’t sync over iCloud
I download this app because of it’s ability to sync notes through iCloud so I could open them at home on my laptop or at work on my iMac. However, every time I would make an update to a note, it did not update in the other location. I was able to create a note and have it show up in both locations, but when I’d update the note, the changes didn’t did refresh over iCloud. Frustrated. Moving on.
Syncing costs - and you can’t cancel the subscription
I had used the free version of Memo previously and liked it, but then the syncing between computers stopped working and it seemed like the developers abandoned the app. But now (August 2018) they are back, and now want to charge a fee of 99 cents a month for syncing. I would even be willing to pay for this feature but in the Terms of Service it says “you will not be able to cancel the subscription once activated”! Who in the world is going to pay for a subscription that can never be canceled?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
