Now much more than a prompter: video recording enabled, so you can train without an expensive camera, and watch the result using any video player (beware: this is *not* intended to produce quality video, it is "training mode only").
Intuitive, mirror mode, Ads-free, full screen mode, etc.
Is able to read plain text files (.txt), but you can also edit your text directly in the prompter (Manage text / Edit text), or copy/paste text from any other application.
Remote control (Bluetooth) available. WARNING: Two devices needed, so you'll have to buy the Bluetooth option twice.
WARNING (bis): If you chose two different screen sized devices, it's obvious that the displayed text won't be the same.
Choose your text file (".txt"), characters size, scroll speed rate, white chars on black background or black on white...
All you'll need, will be to look as confident as TV journalists ;-)
I created this app because after using a number of teleprompter apps, I have come to know exactly what I need as a lone ranger YouTuber.
The interface is very in your face and straight forward, all the knickknacks your might want to modify like scrolling speed and font size WHILE the camera is rolling is right there.
You don't have to stop the recording flow or your mood just to press what feels like ten thousand buttons to get to the interface that allows you to adjust the font size if you end up standing a little further or God forbid you need to change just a single word and have to go to another interface to do that.

Well the actual answer is both yes and no. If you think about it, everyone is
a public speaker is some shape or form. You are always out speaking in
public in some sense. When you are in the grocery store talking to the
cashier or even when you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. These
are all forms of public speaking.
So you could say that we are all born natural speakers...but there is a
problem to this. The minute you are actually asked to speak in front of a
crowd or group of people you instantly become scared! You can rationalize
this with the way children react to a situation. The minute you tell them to
worry or be cautious about something they immediately become scared of it.
So how can you rationalize your fear and overcome it?
Well your first step is to recognize that you speak publicly every day. The
next time you are out at the grocery store or on the bus to work, think
consciously about how you are speaking in public. This will help you to
understand that there is nothing to be worried about.
Also keep in mind that someone has just asked you to speak on a subject on
their behalf! Take this as a compliment. They acknowledge and admire that
you have this type of authority, on this particular subject, and they just want
you to share it with their acquaintances.
Because you are considered an authority figure on a certain topic the
audience is going to be eager to hear you speak. Again take this as a
compliment, people are eager to hear your viewpoint.
You can look at this from a different angle as well. You may be looking for
public speaking engagements and want to share your expertise with others.
Even though you have the desire you may still be a little nervous. Again use
the same analogy as above, people are going to be thrilled to hear what you
have to say on a certain topic.
The best advice we can give you is to work on improving your mindset so
that you are thinking about sharing what you know. Instead of giving a
speech in front of a hundred people or more. When you do this, you may be
surprised at how much more relaxed and confident you ultimately feel.
Most headsets are found under car seats, in pockets, or on a messy desk. For less obvious locations, acoustically locate your headset by sending it a tone so you can hear where it’s hiding. If your headset is out of Bluetooth® range (33ft/10m), or is powered off, then try the BackTrack™ activity log that maps where it was last in use.
How to find your headset:
• SEND A TONE: If you think your headset is powered on and within 33ft/10m of your phone, play a sound file through your headset and hear it tell you where it is. You can increase the volume or select an alternate tone from the library to improve your chances of hearing your headset. (Your media audio settings on your phone must be enabled.)
• TRACK IT: If you think your headset is powered off or too far away, review its recent activity on a time-stamped map to discover where your headset was last used. (Your GPS location services on your phone must be enabled.)
BONUS Battery Meter:
If your phone/tablet is running Android OS 3.X, 4.0.X, 4.1.X, 4.2.2*, 4.3 or 4.4 and it is paired and connected to any of the following Plantronics headsets, an on-screen headset battery meter icon will appear in your device’s Status Bar and a talk-time estimate for your headset will be included in your Notifications list.

Fear of public speaking is a very common form of social anxiety. Fear of public speaking has often been called the 'Greatest Anxiety,' due to the large number of people who actually experience this fear. Fear of public speaking doesn't just mean that you have a fear of making a speech in public. It can mean that you experience stage fright, or even that you have a fear of talking to other people in a social situation.
Fear of public speaking often holds people back from many things that they want in their lives. It may be job promotions, or fund raisers for causes that they believe in, but the fear of public speaking will, at some point, stand between you and what you want or need.
Symptoms of fear of public speaking include shortness of breath, inability to speak, a shaky voice, shallow breathing, rapid heartbeat, sweating, nausea, dizziness, or lightheadedness. There are many things that can cause fear of public speaking. Social anxiety can cause a fear of public speaking. It may also be caused by an earlier traumatic public speaking experience. There is no one answer as to why some people experience fear of public speaking, but for those who experience it, the fear is quite real - but it can be dealt with.
There are many tricks a person can use to get past their fear of public speaking. The first trick is to know exactly what you are going to say, but not to worry about memorizing every word of your speech. Use note cards, and write down your key points - in sentences that make sense. This way, if you freeze up and forget what you were going to say, you can refer to your notes, and pick up where you left off. Use big print on the note cards, and if possible, keep up with where you are on the cards during your speech, so it will be easy to find your place if you need to.
Once you've prepared and practiced your speech, stop. Put it away, and don't think about it again, until you are on the stage, ready to deliver the speech. Often people over practice, and this just causes the fear to grow and grow. Remember it is okay to mess up when you are giving a speech. Simply laugh at yourself, the audience will laugh with you - not at you - and you can continue your speech. In fact, most people are much more relaxed after they've made that first mistake in the speech and laugh about it. They know, at that point, that they are going to be okay.
Speeches do not need to last for hours. You only need three or four main points. Say what needs to be said, accept the applause and say 'Thank You,' and go off and enjoy the rest of your day or evening. Another trick that works well is to have someone you know well to look at throughout the speech, and concentrate solely on that person. Give you speech to them, and them alone - even if the room is packed. This means that you bring your spouse along with you, or bring a friend. This must be someone that you are always comfortable talking to.
Many people feel that they must include jokes in their speeches. Unfortunately, many of these people fear that they are not funny, or that their joke will flop, and this causes more anxiety and fear. If you are worried about this, omit the jokes from your speech and be serious. The people are there to hear the information, not the jokes.
If all else fails - picture everyone in their underwear. This is an old standby that really does work. The point of doing this exercise is that it makes everyone in the room seem less intimidating. You don't even have to picture them in their underwear. Picture them with hair curlers in their hair, or picture the men with facial cream on their faces.
