Don't take our word for it

— I am so excited to have found Penman! I allows me to bypass the physical act of writing entirely, and just focus on what I want to say, which for my unique brain is very helpful. I’ve never tried using speech-to-text software before, but so far I am impressed with Penman’s speed and accuracy. I am using Penman to create and update my day-plans now, but I can see it being a game-changer in my creative writing as well.

AppStore Review

— This is the best speech-to-text app on the market. Very easy to use and accurate. I have had no problems using it whatsoever. I enjoy this app so much that I completely stopped using the original speech-to-text feature on the phone and I have only been using this. It is significantly better than the speech-to-text feature that originally came with my iPhone

AppStore Review

— This is one of those apps that you come across every now and then that completely changes the way you interact with your phone. I can’t tell you the last time I used the microphone feature on my keyboard without being either frustrated or disappointed with the resulting entry. Penman does a great job in processing what you say.
