Action Memo coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 late next month
Remember Action Memo? This was the feature that allowed Galaxy Note users to jot down handwritten notes with the S Pen, and take action with it. For example, you could write a phone number on the screen and call or text it. Or, you might have written down an address and let Google Maps look it up. With Action Memo, you were able to send an email to a handwritten email address, and more.

But Samsung removed Action Memo from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. As you might imagine, Samsung phone reps have had to deal with angry consumers not happy with the removal of this handy feature. But we have to give credit where credit is due. Samsung has been giving consumers what they want throughout this year, so it really might not come as a surprise that the manufacturer is listening to them in regards to this issue as well.

Action Note will be coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in an update that will be disseminated in late September. So don't fret, Galaxy Note 7 users. In a few weeks, your S Pen will be able to take down notes and numbers that you will be able to take action on.

Nice, would be even better if this was made part of the S Notes app, that way, it could also be utilized via the screen-off memos.

Samsung Notes does read and import the files and you can still edit them, but the action tools are gone. They should just add the. SA Samsung Notes

Really? When. You write it can be used to take your handwriting and turn it u to type. Take shapes you draw and make them clean. Turn text into e.ail, phone contacts and a link your write can open a browser. It's an awesome powerful little notes app.

I for one, will gladly welcome it back. For those who may not know it, scrapbook is in galaxy apps. I'm glad I found it, shouldn't have been removed. Note 7 FTW!

No it shouldn't have. Problem is; you can no longer use smart select to save to the scrapbook. Before you could smart select a picture or anything from a web page you were viewing to scrapbook; and go to that page later by clicking on what was saved. I used it a lot for recipes and stuff.
