As a food blogger, I’m constantly playing with recipes to fit my family’s tastes or creating new ones on the fly to meet a need. To help me remember what I tweaked in a recipe, I used the Evernote app on my iPad. Though if I got on a roll, or got distracted by a kid, I would forget to type in my changes or thoughts on how to fix the recipe.
Until I found the Dragon Dictation app on the iPhone. Sure, I’d seen the commercials on TV for the Dragon software, though I didn’t feel it was something I needed.
The Dragon Dictation app is free for the iPhone and iPad. It is super simple to use. Tap on the red button in the middle of the screen and speak into the iPhone or iPad. When you’re finished, tap the Red DONE button at the bottom of the screen.
You can send your dictated text somewhere via email; I email mine to Evernote. You can also post it to Twitter or Facebook if you want, or you can send the text as a text message.
If you want to type additional information before sending the dictated text anywhere, you can use the keyboard included in the app. Otherwise, you can add more dictated text to your first dictation.
The Dragon Dictation app does not keep copies of your dictated text. That works for me since I need to edit whatever I dictate before posting it anywhere. I found as long as I spoke clearly into the phone, Dragon Dictation captured about 90 to 95% of my speaking.
How do you like to capture new recipes you create?
