Here is an app that you will want to download before you head on over to your family's Christmas celebration. Saving Memories Forever is a new app that allows you to record important stories from your family members.
I was told before to always listen to older people. I don't mean just sit there and let them speak – really hear what they are saying and take it all in. So much wisdom comes from their experiences and stories. The older I get, the more I value these conversations. In fact I wish I could go back and re-hear some of them. Well, that's exactly what the Saving Memories Forever app is for!
Saving Memories Forever App
Here is how it works…
- Download the app for your iPhone or Android phone. You can also sign up through your computer and then download to your phone.
- Choose the free or paid subscription. See the difference here.
- The app will guide you through the recording process. You pick a storyteller and have the option to upload their photo.
- Choose their age group and then you are presented with a series of questions. These are like interview suggestions. Once you choose one you will see the record screen. When your storyteller is ready, hit record and they can begin speaking.
- All of these recordings will be automatically uploaded to the Saving Memories Forever website. Now this is the coolest part, because you can invite other people to come to the site and listen to the stories. What a perfect way to share precious stories with other loved ones.
This will be so perfect for Christmas day. I want to interview my Grandparents who have both led very interesting lives. I also cannot wait to see Mike's Grandmother. She celebrated her 90th birthday this past summer and can still tell you what she did as a teenager! Talk about interesting!
The Saving Memories Forever app is available for Free download in the iTunes store or through Google Play. You can also use the service on your computer directly through the website.
