How Dragon Dictation Can Help You Write

Today's post is going to be about an app that I think all writers should be using. It's called Dragon Dictation.

This amazing app takes your words and turns them into text. This is great because if you're driving, or your hands are busy, or you otherwise can't write, you can still get your thoughts down somewhere. I like Dragon Dictation because it lets me write while I'm driving. This blog post, for example, was written almost entirely in the car. While I was driving. How cool is that?

To use Dragon Dictation, all you have to do is open the app, hit Record, and start talking. Just like that, your words are translated into text. Once you're finished speaking, you can choose to export the text via email, SMS, or by some social channels. I usually choose to email it to myself so I can transfer it to Scrivener right when I get home.

Another great thing about the app? It's free. That's right - it didn't cost me a cent. You can find it in the app store pretty easily, too. I'm not getting paid to speak about this app. It's just honestly that good.

If you're looking for a great app to help you write while on the go, check out Dragon Dictation, available for iOS and Android.
