Visiting a new country, and wish to attend a Toastmasters meeting? SpeakApp includes the Find a Club page from Toastmasters International's website to help you locate clubs near you. Enter your location and meeting time preference to select among the available Clubs in your area.

A preference to control display of time during speech to better conform to Toastmaster International (tm) practices. Two custom time buttons may be configured in preferences.

You know that timing a speech can be a chore--look at the stopwatch until it's time to tell the speaker. I've heard many speeches that captured my attention so completely that I failed as timer. Real Timer simplifies the task. It's as easy to use as a stopwatch, but does more! The app will automatically change color at the precise time the speaker needs notification. All of the speeches are summarized in the History. You can have limits from 15 seconds to 23 hours 59 minutes!
Swipe up or down to demonstrate timer colors or, if you started the timer late, change the timer early .
You can change the speaker or time limits anytime before the end of the speech.
You can use this in a Toastmasters speech contest! The timer can be completely hidden while running.
You can use this for practice! Use the "Big Timer" and you'll see a clock as big as the display! You can see the timer on a phone
It's a must use app if you are the timer in a Toastmasters meeting.
⇛ 3 Timer displays
Small--hopefully the speaker can't see it
Large--easy to see anywhere in the room
In my club we all review every speaker for 2 minutes--I use the Large timer and the 2-3 speech so the Toastmaster can see how much time is left
If you want a switch from black to red set all times to the same value, e.g. 2:00-2:00-2:00
Volume Down stops and starts the timer
Volume Up resets the timer
Search brings up the time limits list
⇛ Hint--help for color blind speakers
Default G=Green, Y=Yellow, R=Red
Settings can change the hint to anything
⇛ Time limits
Default to 1-2, 2-3, 4-6, 5-7 and 6-8 min.
You can use any value from 15 seconds to 23 hours 59 minutes!

Calculate Yellow--average of green and red
Calculate Red--add one or two minutes to green

You need these flashcards! They currently contain over 160 formulas, acronyms and definitions likely to be found on the Project Management Professional (PMI) certification exam.
The system is adaptive, meaning that the better you understand a term, the less likely it is to be asked. The system also allows you to toggle between a multiple choice mode and a traditional flash card mode, depending upon your preferences.
It even slowly adds terms over time, so that you don't get overwhelmed as you learn new project management vocabulary.
It contains more than 300 cards covering biology, geography and chemistry that anyone who studies oceanography should know. If you want to be presented with multiple choices while you use the flashcards, you can do that. If you want to use flash cards without multiple choice you can do that too.
These oceanography flashcards utilize a modified version of the Leitner system. The better you understand a flashcard, the less likely the system is to ask. That way you can focus on learning new material.
When run, this application will list all games. You select one from the list, or ask the android device to select one randomly (this feature is great so that you and your friends don't have to argue about which game you should play!).
Each game has a detailed set of rules, how to score the game and variants to the game (if any are known).
