Tech Review: Native Union Play Video Memo Pad

This is a great and fun product. And...that's about it. I have enjoyed it for the one month and I have realized that: 1. it is not necessary and 2. I do not even use it, ever.

The Native Union Video Memo item is easy to use. The display is 4.3 inches and the device has its own camera, microphone and playback system. The device has an easy to use fun design. it simulates a talking bubble and has 3 buttons, play record and delete. The Native Union works with 3 AAA batteries.

It records several messages or varying length. To navigate through the messages, simply double click the play button.

The good: This system is super easy to use. Simply hit record for your message and then play to watch it. It doesn't get easier than that. But. remember to stand a bit away from the item so that you don't get a closeup.

My issues: The camera is of very low quality, but the speaker is quite good. Moreover, I never ever use this. Writing on a notepad or sticky note takes half the time. This item is good to leave things that are hard to express on paper. It is also good for guests to leave messages.

This is simply a novelty product that I thought I would use...but I do not. Long live the sticky note.
