RevEng Posted April 1, 2021 Share Posted April 1, 2021 Atari Memo Pad has long been recognised as a landmark application in computing history, and now it's finally been ported to the Atari 7800! Memo Pad is an ephemeral messaging and note-taking app. Like everyone else, you've scribbled, doodled, and left messages for friends, with a pen and pad of paper. At first glance, Memo Pad seems to just be a fancy replacement for these physical tools. But looks can be deceiving. Memo Pad brings the power of the digital age to the mundane paper-based pad. To begin with, Memo Pad requires you to tediously enter your information in, one awkward character at a time. There's no quick and frivolous doodling to be found here. Memo Pad demands that only your most compelling notes are worthy of the huge effort to record them. Even better, there is no save functionality! Memo Pad conveniently ties up your whole system, until you decide that you want to play a game more than you value your displayed information. Will you stop and smell the digital roses, or will you keep that note? The answer to that question will shine a light on how worthy your oh-so-special thoughts are! Finally, your Memo Pad notes have an innovative 960 character limit, enforcing brevity of thought. Long-time Memo Pad power-user (and Twitter CEO) Jack Dorsey heavily borrowed from this feature. Always remember that Memo Pad did it first, and Memo Pad did it best. Discover the transformative power of Memo Pad today, with Atari 7800 - The Choice Of The Experts! ^--This one took a while! How long will it be until I break down and play some Food Fight?
