Hey all. I really enjoy trying out new technology & seeing if it can make my life easier -- hopefully my reviews & articles will take some of the headache out of your life as I show you software that has worked for me. I particularly enjoy mobile software, so many of my articles will cover mobile apps - iPhone & Android especially.

Dragon Voice Dictation iPhone App Rocks!

Posted by Adam Chavez On December - 17 - 20096 COMMENTS


I just downloaded the free Dragon Dictation iPhone app. It is really cool.

Here’s how it works:

After you’re done recording the message, you click done, & then your message is sent to Dragon’s servers, where it is translated into text and then a few seconds later, delivered to your phone.

To setup Evernote for the iPhone & the desktop, do the following:

First of all, hello MintyWhite reader. I’m excited to be working with Rich & the MintyWhite team! I’m taking on the task of keeping you updated on how the iPhone and Windows can play together nicely.

I’m an iPhone junky. I’ll admit it. I love the thing. I love it as a productivity app, as a digital voice recorder, as a clock to quickly check what time it is on the other side of the world where some of my family lives, as a quick & easy email client. I could go on and on.
