Have you ever thought that you would like to write your own autobiography? It can seem like quite a daunting project! But luckily there are plenty of apps that can help you! Here are our top five picks!
1. Record and Transcribe through Otter
Do you need to interview members of your family to write your book? Or are you writing an autobiography or biography of a relative/friend and need to interview them? If so Otter is your go-to app. As you record it transcribes instantly, differentiating voices as it goes. You can also highlight words that it has transcribed and it will replay that part of the conversation.
2. Scanning photos through Photomyne
Any autobiography is not complete without photos! And if you want an app that specialises in preserving old images and can colour black and white photos, look no further than Photomyne. Photos are scanned on a phone rather than on a scanner meaning that you don’t need to take them out of a frame or an album. It’s sister app SlideScan can digitalise photo slides.
3. Project Management through Evernote
Creating an autobiography is a big project but luckily these days there are plenty of apps that can help you organise yourself. Evernote is one of the slickest project management apps available. You can use it to store notes, photos, create a to-do list all as well as scheduling your work. You can use it on your phone and your mobile and the free version has plenty of functionality.
Although Microsoft Word and Google Docs offer spelling and grammar checks, Grammarly offers much much more – its suggestions will make your writing sound more fluid and readable.
5. Researching families through Ancestry.com
If you want to dig a bit deeper and discover your wider family connections ancestry.co.uk is possibly the largest genealogy app . This app has 27 billion records which means that you can connect to literally thousands of relatives you never knew that you had!
