Introducing Whisper Memos
🎉 Whisper Memos is now available in the App Store!
Whisper Memos is an app that records your voice and sends you an email with the transcription a few minutes later. It is based on OpenAI’s new Whisper technology. The outcome is simply very accurate.
I got the idea after reading this comment. The author talks about their use case - summarizing the day on a voice memo, but never really coming back to it:
I like to record audio notes while driving in my car after work, to kind of decompress my thoughts from the day. But I never go back and listen as they can be long and meandering. Sometimes in the audio log I will sum up my thoughts, but this might be 20 minutes in and hard to find. I really wish I had transcriptions so I could easily scan the full contents.
So far, my usecase has been journaling and taking book notes. I love reading physical books, but despise photographing them. (Using an app like Highlighted helps.) With this, I can simply press a button on the lock screen, and read my favorite part aloud.
Everything I record lands in my inbox. Most of the notes I will copy into Reflect, but some of them are actionable items - so I might create a todo, or run an errand based on the reminder.
I would love for you to try it. You can download it by visiting whispermemos.com. Please let me know if you find any bugs or problems!
