AudioPen is an app that uses A.I. to streamline the process of cranking out text.

What does that mean, exactly?

Well, the website describes it this way:

  • AudioPen transforms messy voice notes into publish-ready text
  • Draft articles, memos, emails, and more. In a fraction of the time.

After using it, I’m convinced this is a tool that most lawyers will love once they start using it.

Here’s what you need to know…

Simple & Easy to Use

  • The application stands out in its utter simplicity and user-friendly interface
  • The word that most comes to mind while using AudioPen is “frictionless”

How it works:

  • You can try it for free (download the app and be prepared to be amazed)
  • It works on a computer or smartphone (It’s best to start by using it on your phone)
  • The free version allows you to record notes up to 3 minutes in length, which is enough to get started
  • The app refines the spoken content by removing pauses, and filler words, reordering content to make it more coherent
  • The app enables you to store recordings, tag them, organize them into folders, or even export them (all with minimal friction)
  • After the recording is processed (which takes just a few minutes) you get access to the summary and a raw transcript, which you can copy and paste as needed

Paid Version (called “Prime”)

  • Enables recording for up to 15 minutes
  • Allows you to upload audio files for processing
  • Enables users to customize the writing style and format, ranging from an informal basic style to mimicking anyone’s unique writing style
  • Integrates with Zapier so you can have audio summaries automatically emailed to you or sent to a private Slack channel (as demonstrated here)

Why it’s useful

  • It makes drafting many emails easier and faster
  • Appreciated by writers who dread starting with a blank page.
  • Eliminates the challenges that come with creating a summary of generalized ideas.
  • Allows you to speak quickly, trusting the app to make corrections and improve your words.

Two Options for Prime

  • The first option is $75/year, which is an ongoing expense.
  • The second option is $150, which is a one-time fee for lifetime access.
  • You also have the option to give someone lifetime access as a gift if you’d like.
  • The price has risen over the past months, so it might be good to lock in the current price.

Glowing Testimonial

I found out about AudioPen from one of my Inner Circle members, who created a post describing its value as follows:

“In the first five days of using AudioPen, it has significantly improved my workflows. I really hate writing from a blank page. AudioPen lets me quickly get the first pass out, and then you edit.
I use it mainly for emails. It is far more effective than traditional dictation methods, where you get distracted by the pauses and rewinding to create an error – just keep going and trust that it will correct.”

I’ve only been using it for two days, and I wholeheartedly agree. It’s a game-changer, especially when using the advanced features in the “Prime” version.
