Screenshot is very useful for quick memos, but they clutter up your photo library.
When you find a good tweet or a nice quote, you often take a screenshot. The advantage of taking a screenshot is that you can instantly save the idea.
However, screenshots are often automatically saved in the standard photo library, which can cause problems.
First, it can be frustrating to have screenshots scattered around in your photo library with pictures of your family or your adorable dog.
Second, it is very difficult to find the memo you are looking for among the large number of images in your photo library. There is no point in taking a memo if you can't find it.
