Audio files; on the go

I love that I can create an audio file when I'm visiting relatives. I'm not limited to bringing tons of equipment, just my phone to record oral histories... Then tag the file to the right people included in the history so it shows up on their person page.

Same thing with photos. I love to take pics of previous photos on the spot rather than borrowing them and being entrusted with irreplaceable memories to return.

This is great, it is so much easier to use than the old way on a desktop computer. I would be close to tears trying to get the pictures centered and tagged. I love that it shows how many tags are on each picture and that they are easy to correct and position. Thank you.

Thank you


Thank you for making this available free of charge. I have used this on many occasions to record stories being told by relatives and tagging it to their history in FamilySearch for and audio history. It’s a wonderful tool that will bless generations to come.
