Save That Thought!

This tip is provided by Diane Ebersole with the State Bar of Michigan.

Do you ever need to quickly capture a thought, list a to-do item or remember a parking spot location? Using an application like Tape-a-Talk for Android devices or Voice Memos for iPhones allows you to quickly create an audio reminder note. These apps can be very handy, making it easy to record a message and delete it after the reminder has served its purpose. Some of these applications also make it easy to send the recording as an attachment to an email. If you've ever found yourself wandering around a parking lot searching for your car—or hitting your forehead because you finally remembered what it was you were supposed to do—explore a “voice solution” through the Android Market or the Apple App Store.
