New NoteThis app comes with a simple way to voice-tag locations, perfect for Android Wear

1
Say what you will about the usefulness of Android Wear gear, like the Moto 360, or LG's G Watch R, but they are pretty good at one thing - doing very simple tasks very quickly, and certainly quicker than with your smartphone. That's the added value of those companion devices, especially given the ever-growing screen diagonals and overall dimensions of Android handsets.

Granted, there are numerous issues still, especially with battery life of said smartwatches, yet once you carry one, you'd quickly notice how convenient it is for quickly previewing messages and notifications, or doing simple tasks from the comfort of your wrist. One such task is tagging a location in a jiffy, whether it's the funky new bar downtown you binge-drank last night, or simply where you parked at the mall.

NoteThis is a dead-simple new app for Android that does precisely this kind of location tagging simply with your voice, and fits perfectly into the Android Wear concept. Just say "OK, Google, note to self," and add how you want to save the place in your tag history. Alternatively, you can launch NoteThis, and tap on the mic button. Needless to say, you'd have to have the GPS radio turned on to enable quick location tagging, but you already knew that. Hit NoteThis from the source link below, if you are interested, and tell us if it's working out for you. For more handy software for your smartwatch, you can check our thorough Android Wear apps rundown, too.
