This app was born out of a thought process that focused on analogue note taking allowing users scribble freely on a large canvas.

This is just the tip of the iceberg as LG has set-up an experimental zone at its CES booth that showcase some upcoming user experience features like Dual-Screen Dual Play which sounds very similar to the Pop-Up-play feature found on Samsung products.
As of now these features are being called experimental, while Samsung already has a few products that have these features running.
Additionally, for us Indians, LG has only recently released the Optimus Vu, so the Vu II could be some time away, so the Panorama Memo feature could be deemed redundant unless it comes to the original Optimus Vu.
