What's good: Since a thousand years ago, there have been records of diaries, memoirs, and other personal accounts that disclose man's consistent need to chronicle their thoughts, ideas, and daily lives. As the world progressed and changed, the instrument for jotting down these instances likewise evolved - from tree bark and parchment, to bound books and diaries, and finally to computers, handheld devices, and now the iPhone. It isn't the first time our shiny Apple devices have seen an application for this purpose, but d3i's simple yet beautiful and feature-packed virtual journal definitely tops the list. Aptly called Momento, it revolves around the concept of creating 'moments' throughout the day, which are saved in crisp pages and organized by date. There are a host of useful features - such as the ability to tag places, events, and people, add pictures, rate your posts, passcode protec private notes, and import feeds from four of the most popular social sites (including Facebook and Twitter, of course) - that really color up the experience of diary writing. You can also switch to calendar view to see your entries by month like you would in the built-in iPhone calendar app. From the streamlined interface and overall polish down to the smallest detail, it's apparent that this application was built for convenience, creativity, and organization. An inspired and inspiring app, to say the least, and one that imbues an atmosphere of reflection and reminiscing so you can create a meaningful timeline of your personal experiences and remember the instances in your life that matter.

Suggestions for improvement: It would be perfect if font styles and voice notes (memos or snippets of a song, for example) could be integrated into this application.
