The text on the page provides you with links to suggested questions. Click on the link and
select the question you want to ask. Below is a sample from the three-page list of
categories and questions.
Childhood (0-12)
Describe your mother and father.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Tell me about your pets.
Teenage Years (13-19)
What was a typical school day?
Describe your best friends.
What was it like to learn to drive?

It asks alot of great questions and you can download the app for free on a IPhone or Android. Then you just log in and you can take it with you and voice record your family and loved ones. If you can't interview your loved one in person that you can always do it over the phone, through Skype or etc.  The app is also great for preserving memories of the ones that are no longer with us. You can interview people about what they remember about people from the past in order to preserve those memories since you can no longer interview them yourself. This is called creating a virtual relative. It doesn't beat the real thing, for sure, but it does provide some insights.

I have used the IPhone app alot for interviewing family members at birthday parties and then I add them the computer program. I love having both so I do not have to drag my laptop around with me. It is great for building your family tree but in real time voice recordings. It is really easy to use and if fun for the whole family and I like to get my son involved.

Disclosure: “I participated in a campaign on behalf of for Saving Memories Forever. A free trial and promotional items have been provided in exchange for my review. Regardless all opinions are my own."
