Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

Amazon HD Tablet

This grandma has a new tablet. It’s the Amazon Fire HD 10. I made sure to get the one without “Special Offers.” Jeeze Loueeze! The thought of purchasing a tablet with built-in advertisements gets my goat. Anyway, I got the 64 GB (expandable up to 256 GB) version of the tablet. I also got it [...]

Dancing Low Tech Grandma

I put this dancing grandma video on my Instagram account and I received a comment from an individual asking me how I did it?  The quick one-sentence explanation was inadequate. I told her I created a Bitmoji and connected it to Snapchat, but realized the explanation might not have been good enough. The problem [...]

Chrome

Pushbullet

I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a [...]

Dictation

My new Samsung Galaxy tablet has me exploring all kinds of neat tricks. Did you know it’s possible to dictate into your Android device and have it transcribed on your computer? If you really want to push the envelope, you can have it transcribed both on your computer and your device at the same time. [...]

Microsoft-to-Android-Transition

I’ve been having a plethora of MMAE moments. What is MMAE you ask? Simple, it’s having a Microsoft Mindset in an Android Environment moment. If you were raised on Microsoft and are transitioning to Android, you’re familiar with such moments. Your first moment was probably like mine, looking for the little “x” to close out [...]
