Speaker Alert is a speech timing application inspired by Toastmasters and designed for all occasions: work presentations, club meetings, stand up comedy spots or even that all important wedding speech.
You get alerts at 4 times during your speech. Green for your minimum time, Amber for when you're approaching the end, Red for when you need to be finishing up and a flashing alert if you really should be off stage.
Just select a timing profile, hit Start and put your device down in front of you for clear and bright visual alerts, or pop it in your pocket for vibrating alerts.
Choose from a comprehensive collection of speech profiles, or create your own! Group profiles to keep everything organized.
"I love the new features. I have been using 3 different timer apps to get all the features I wanted. Now it is just yours." - Rodney Grady, DTM
We've noticed when timing meetings that sometimes you can mistakenly start timing a speech before the speaker is entirely ready.
This release adds a reset button to the speech view, so you can quickly start over with a single tap.
Ratings and Reviews
Needs better watch support
Great app for the iPhone, works great for my toastmasters meeting.
What would be awesome is being able to have the watch vibrate at each change of state (5 green, 6 yellow, 7 red)
This doesn’t seem to work because the watch face goes dark and doesn’t update the app when dark. Sending alert to the home screen should fix this...
Previous Version Was Better
I've used Speaker Alert for quite some time now and showed it to many people who also got it. When my iPhone died and I had to upgrade to the 6, I had to reload the ap. I have two issues with the new version:
1-the screen now times out; the screen light goes out after a minute or so (it didn't in the previous version).
2-I somehow got two additional speech times (0.00 on both) and can't delete or change them. There are no "help" buttons.
Change this and I'd give it 5 stars
Works great but difficult to reset.
The only thing not great about this is it takes quite a few tops to reset and start another session. This makes it difficult for table topics or sharing at meetings. But it does allow you to create your own speech timings. It allows you to choose tones. It is easy to use Weather next to the person talking or across the room so it works good for 12 step meetings.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
