"Carrying all my speeches in one convenient and easy to use device saves my sanity. SpeechMaker is easy for me to use and I love how I can control all aspects of how it looks on screen. Before I asked my wife how the speech sounds, now I record the speech until I have it just right then I ask my wife what she thinks. SpeechMaker is the best thing to happen to this ancient art in a hundred years."

What a joy!
Check out my 2010 review — in short I loved it. Speechmaker has had maybe three updates since then but has worked with every iPad and iOS since then. I have read short essays and poetry etc. to a live audience 4 or more times without a hitch.
I was devastated to find my glee for a new update turning to horror as it now would not even load. I have an iPad Air. It will load onto my iPhone 5S but that is not something I would want to use. I rebooted my iPad (no success) and will try deleting and reload. I will amend my review if I have any success.
Success! I deleted the app directly from my iPad and wondered at the cloud icon that remained. Nevertheless, I reloaded it from the cloud and it opens without hesitation. This is the biggest update I’ve seen adding support for more file types and control gestures for font size. I always keep my content in duplicate in a folder on my iMac and would advise the precaution for all apps. Perhaps Dewey7777 can restore his device from his last sync and save the content before re-installing. Good luck!
Simply doesn’t work and tech support not answering
I love supporting app developers in the app store, but I expect to get what you say I am getting. And if I screw up, then tell me so, but that would mean you have to answer the tech/support email that I wrote. But wait, was going to ask you yet one more time before leaving this review, but your webpage says not to leave more than one email about a problem. Its doesn’t work as advertised, period. Can’t import from Dropbox because “error authorizing app: Only a limited set of users can receive access tokens while this app is in development mode.” and pdf imports from google just simply fail to render on the screen properly if at all. Fail. Sorry guys, but the only thing plumamazing about this app is that you got it reviewed in blogs that I regularly read, and NOW those bloggers are ALSO on notice. Thank God I only lost three bucks . . . and 15 hours of time.
CRASHES BAD LOST ALL CONTENT
This app has AMAZING potential. The update crashed every time I opened it, I had to delete and re download the app so it could at least open. And the drop box link didn't work on the last version and crashes on this one to..... Please fix it ASAP. There is not to many apps like this and I have tried the great majority of them and this is the closest of what I need..... I just can't have it crash when I'm trying to give a speech.
