WebOS Ports's OWO Memos: an Enyo 2 replacement

The Memos app built into webOS has never been much better than 'just okay'. Both the TouchPad and webOS smartphones adhere to a sticky note user interface convention that makes for fun eye candy - "look, push pins!" - but does nothing to enhance the user experience. In fact, you could argue, quite easily, that the grid layout for the notes with a small preview of the contents is detrimental to use.

So when WebOS Ports's Josh Palmer (or shiftyaxel, if you prefer) told us that he was working on a replacement app for Memos built off of Enyo 2, we were understandably excited. I wrote our review of the TouchPad using the Memos app and it was a nightmare (though the app's responsiveness and stability has improved since then with OS updates, but nothing on the user interface front), so anything would be better.

The app, available to TouchPad owners in the WOCE beta feed in Preware (beta feed instructions here), is called OWO Memos, and while it's a work-in-progress, we're still liking what we're seeing.
