An Easy to Use iPad and iPhone App for Writing a “Do-It-Yourself” Will
WillCrafter Lite, a DIY will app, is now available for iPhones and iPads. This $.99 package incorporates all of the basic DIY components of WillCrafter for iPad. With consideration of state laws for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, WillCrafter Lite provides an easy to use format to write your own last will and testament.
WillCrafter Lite is simple to use: you will enter data through a series of building blocks. WillCrafter compiles your information into your own fully editable will. It can then be printed and signed, in accordance with the laws of the state where you live. It takes about 20 or 30 minutes to enter your personal data. Once the will has been completed, you will email it to yourself, then copy it your word processer and print it.
Most adults do not have a will. WillCrafter Lite is a bargain, and is an easy means to prepare your own will, through the DIY program. Once you have a will, and consider certain principles and techniques mentioned in the commentary, your estate will be distributed according to your wishes. For parents, it gives you the assurance that your children will be ardently cared for by a guardian you choose. For a spouse, it ensures that your estate is distributed as you intend it to be.
Although the app has instructions to assist users in preparing their own wills, there is a companion ebook, Your Will’s Companion, which covers the components of a will, the probate process, trusts, and much more. The $.99 manual covers a plethora of estate planning information, including tips on retirement resources, nursing home information, how to delay inheritances for minor children, as well as a step by step checklist of what’s needed in an estate plan. This ebook is available through the Kindle store, and the iBook store (through iTunes).
