Very basic teleprompter. No way to arrange scripts alphabetically or in groups. As a musician I wanted to use this for song lyrics during live performances, but listing 40 songs in random order makes it too time consuming to find the song you need. Another issue is the fact that each time you open a file the speed defaults to 25. Different songs have different tempos so having a default speed that needs to be re-adjusted for each song each time you open it makes this app only useable as a rehearsal tool. And finally, as someone else mentioned, once a file is created you can't delete it. For a basic teleprompter it's OK at best but needs a lot of development.
Trying to get copy into the app is like pulling teeth. I tried using the email-yourself-a-text file way that is described, but did not work. I ended up having to cut and paste the text in.
Once that was done, highlighting or coloring is beyond frustrating as it will randomly change the color of text not selected.
Yeah, if you want an app does half of its intended function and that will frustrate you to no end, this one is for you.
You're on your own after purchase.
I just bought this for one actor videos so they can read the script. The prompter itself is fine but you do NOT need to purchase the full version, as it doesn't offer many extras or allow you to title your scripts. You'll have a bunch of different scripts named, "untitled".
Also, there is absolutely 0 support after purchase. Good luck if you need help with anything.
