Steps

  1. 1
    This should bring up your locked screen, which will prompt you to swipe across the screen, or enter pass-code or PIN or another method of unlocking
    .
    I'm swiping because that's the method I have set up. This should take you directly to you home screen.

    Once you are on your home screen, you're going to want to find the applications button icon, which is down at the bottom right-hand side

    That will open up the application folder
    .
    What we're looking for is what looks like a little notepad icon. You may have to scroll around to find it depending on how much in your system, or how much you've modified the system. When you do find the memo icon, just give it one tap.

    That's going to open up the memo application
    .
    As you can see, there are no memos here. However, I can create a memo, simply by pressing the plus button.

    One press on the plus button creates a memo
    .
    I can add a memo. So let's say Hello, for example. I can enter a title. Our title will be "Hi 1".

  7. 7
    And I've saved the Hi 1 memo
    .
    I can now add another memo by pressing the plus button. We'll call this memo "Voice 1" and now instead of writing something, I can press this button.

    And I can begin recording a voice memo

    I can say "This is a test voice memo which I am recording because I like to record voice memos and make great tutorials". Now I'm going to press the stop button.

    Now I also have, as you can see at the bottom, my 8-second voice memo

  16. 16
    As you can see now, I have two memos, however, my phone is still reading none here
    .
    The reason it reads none is because this is the category of none. If I want to change the name of this category, then I'm going to have to manage categories. Managing categories is done by tapping the memo bar there.

    And I can add the category of, for example, voice
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  20. 20
    And I can now add another category, and I can name that category Text
    .
    Now I have two categories. If I tap on the voice category, there's nothing there, if I'd like to delete one of them, I simply press on the minus sign, and they ask do you want to delete it, and I can answer OK.

  21. 21
    Now that I've created my voice category, we can go back and add something to it
    .
    To add something to it, I'm going to tap the memo button, then I'm going to tap on my category none.

    .

    .

    .

    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  26. 26
    If I would prefer not to delete it, tapping back takes me out of it
    .
    I can instead go here, and I can rename the category.

    To something entirely different
    .
    Let's cancel that. When I'm in a memo, I can share this memo.
    Use Memo App on Galaxy S5.mp4~canvas286 147851.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  28. 28
    Or print them

    So I can share this memo and I will have a number of different options that will allow me to share it.

    WiFi, Bluetooth, Google, etc, etc, down a very long list of different and unique applications
    .
    So I could tap WiFi, I could tap Bluetooth, I could tap Google, however, we're not going to be sharing this memo, so there's no need to do that.

how to "edit" an existing memo?

I can't seem to see a way to EDIT an existing memo, why would we have to DELETE an entire memo just to edit something in it?

Tap on the location within the memo. You can also double-tap on the location to select a word. A blue handlebar will appear. This will enable editing. Tap and drag the handlebar ends to select more text to edit. Alternatively, tap on "Select All". With the text selected, you can either type text or tap on "Cut", for example.
