There was a time when folks used to always have a small notebook or a diary tucked away in their pocket wherever they went. It was vital to keep a note of all those important things like phone numbers and addresses and to write stuff down that you didn't want to forget. At home they might keep a scrapbook to paste in photos and the like or a travel log if they'd been on vacation. I wonder if anyone does that stuff anymore - especially when you can keep all that stuff and more on an app for your iPhone in your pocket. The curiously named aRoo is a new lifestyle app for iOS where you can document, remember, share, list and even rank all your life experiences as you go.

aRoo is like having a notebook in your pocket where you can capture and rank anything and everything you see and share your experiences with your friends. But, rather than having to fish around for a pen to take note of stuff, aRoo lets you quickly and easily keep track of all your favorite things and share them on your iphone or ipad as you move from place to place. You can use the app to list and rank new or favorite restaurants, when visiting new places and even if you want to just keep track of your favorite films, music or best sporting moments, if it comes to that. Your imagination is your only limitation.

No longer will you have to rely on your memory to remember all the details of your travels and experiences. You can take and upload photos and add them to your lists and write reviews on your experiences as well as offering the benefit of your wisdom to fellow users. Import your Facebook friends list and easily share lists and images through social networks, email or SMS. As well as sharing lists you can also peruse your friends' lists and see all the things, the experiences and the places that they love most and have found most inspiring. You'll also be able to compare them to your own and to other users.

Thinking about it, I guess the app's name - as well as it's "Have you Roo’d Today?" byline - refer to being able to hop about from one place to another to document your favorite things and places. Quite catchy really, isn't it? CEO David Perlman describes aRoo as "a pocket to capture and rank your favorite places and things as you hop from experience to experience. It helps you remember the best of the best and allows you to share those experiences and places with your friends.”

Whether you want to inspire your friends with memories of your best experiences in life or just keep a note of your favorite films and music, aRoo is a simple and easy way to do it. This free app for iPhone and iPad (with an Android version coming soon) is a rather cool notebook with benefits where you can illustrate your favorite events with photos and written descriptions and share them with your friends. aRoo helps you remember all the amazing experiences we go through in the course of our lives. I wonder if their catch phrase of "Have you Roo’d today?" will catch on like tweeting or googling. We shall see.
