Don't let your memories be forgotten

Tell Your Story

As each day passes, we forget past experiences. Whether we're in our 30s or our 80s, it's critical for us to look back at our lives and capture the moments that really affected us. We aren't microblogging every birthday party but are reflecting on the pivital moments that changed the course of our lives. The Unforgotten Life is one that we cared enough about to remember.

Easy, Beautiful & Priceless.

An incredibly easy tool empowers the most novice user.
Professionally designed templates make your stories come alive.
Your family will cherish your legacy for decades to come.

I spent 2 years writing my memoirs in Microsoft Word. I would spent weeks fussing with formatting, photos, and the table of contents. Unforgotten eliminated that entire nightmare.

How it Works

We simplify the process from starting with your first story to a published book.


You write stories about your life. Start from scratch or pick from a prompt like your favorite sport or vacation?

Friends & Family

As you write about friends and family, the application automatically prompts you when you enter a new person.


Add photos to Stories or People. You can upload from your phone or download them from Google Photos or iCloud.

Pets & Stuff

Don't forget your favorite car or furry animal.

Add Dates

As you add Stories and People, the application asks for dates (or ranges if you don't remember).

Get Help

Can't remember details about your grandson? Invite your daughter to contribute to one of your stories.


Adjust the order of stories, group into chapters, review the autogenerated timelines and family charts.

Publish to Web

When you're done, publish to a secure website you can share with family.

Publish to Book

When you're really done, publish to hardcopy through one of our certified printers.


We built Unforgotten Life with critical features in-mind from the start.

Mobile Friendly

All tools work beautifully on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

Print-ready PDF

Generate a print-ready PDF to send to one of our certified printers such as Lulu, Blurb, or BookBaby.

Color or B&W

Choose between printing in full color or black & white. Of course full color looks better but black & white won't break the budget.


Your user account has the right balance of security. The editor will stop you from adding dangerous data like social security numbers


All your stories are encrypted to stop hackers from getting your personal information.


Your project won't slow down no matter how many stories you write or photos you add.

Invite as many friends and family members you need to collaborate on your book.

How does Unforgotten compare to similar products? When writing your life history, you have a few alternatives. Each comes with advantages and disadvantages.

Word Processors

Microsoft's Word and Apple's Pages are wonderful word processors that can come installed on your laptop. But these lack online backups and multi-user collaboration. Google Docs solves these problems with some loss in critical functionality like easily adding photo captions. None of these scale well with lots of image, nor do they provide any support for organizing your life history. You can suffer from writer's block or get crushed by writing too much.

Audio Recording

Tools like StoryCorps, Vita, and Artifact are great for audio recording. If you're a talented public speaker or want to preserve the audio of an aging relative, then these are great options. However, they weren't designed for writing books. They solve the same problem (preserving our life history), but in a totally different yet complementary way.


There are a number of ghostwriting solutions like Story Terrace and Life Time Memoirs. Unforgotten's cloud-based book-editing software enables you to collaborate with other writers like professional ghostwriters and close relatives.

Book Publishers

When you finish writing, you can either publish your book elecronically or in hard-bound print. If you decided to publish, you can have us print your book through one of our certified partners or you can take our print-ready PDF to your own printer.

Life History Book Writing Software

A Life Untold, The Life Writer, and Storyworth are probably the closest in features. These are products with many happy customers and you should feel free to explore those options.

Our Unforgotten App, however, uses the latest technology, scalable architecture, and a custom-built book layout engine. This means you can quickly and easily upload photos, organize your life's history (people, places, things), write your story, layout your book, and even collaborate with others. The app is designed from the start to be mobile friendly. You may not want to write your whole book on your phone, but you will sometimes need the ability to add notes while at the grocery story or transcribe stories handsfree while in the car. When your done, your book will layout in a beautiful, industry-first two-column layout.
