Saving Memories Forever Introduction
It is time for another Mosaic Reviews review. This time I was given access to an app called Saving Memories Forever. I received no other compensation and the only return expected was a review on me ol’ blog.
Saving Memories forever is a way to record precious memories with your family members forever. Have you ever wanted to hear the voice of a loved one who has passed? Or wished you could remember the details of the stories Grandpa told? You can preserve those stories for yourself and your children with this program.
Saving Memories Forever has two parts, a website and an app (available on Android and iPhone). There are user guides available for both parts of the program. The app and registration on the website are free. There is also a monthly paid option ($3.99/mo.) that gives you more options.
How Does it Work?
It is easy peasy lemon squeezy (you can thank my children). Once you have registered on the website (you can do this through the app or your desktop) and have the app downloaded, it is as simple as pressing record, asking a question, and letting them answer. Really. Once you have finished, you have the option to playback your recording, re-record the story, and upload it to your account. There are about 10 questions per section already loaded into the app when you get it, but you can add your own.
Free Vs. Paid
With both options you receive the option to add transcription files to your audio, add a photograph for your storyteller, add tags to stories, search the site for relatives’ stories, uploading MP3 files directly from your PC to the website, and the use of the free app.
The paid version gets you the following: unlimited storytellers, unlimited story listeners, unlimited number of stories you can listen to per day, the ability to add photographs to your stories, and attach Word documents to your stories. Plus, you can search tags to find other stories.
Personally, I found this simple little product to be fun. I answered a couple questions on my own to get familiar with the app (more like getting used to hearing the sound of my own voice). Then I asked my kids to answer some questions. I loved hearing their answers. This product that will enable me to hear those little voices long after they are grown. I like that. It was easy to use and my kids had a blast answering my questions.
You can try it out for free yourself. If you do, be sure to stop back here and let me know what you think!
