Ratings and Reviews
Magicscroll Is The Best
In 1995, I went to Las Vegas for their annual National Association of Broadcasters Convention seeking the best possible software for teleprompting. Magic Teleprompting was there with their Magicscroll software written especially for the Mac. I was instantly sold and have been using every updated version to the present day. Magicscroll's ease of use, reliability and stability is unmatched by any other program out there. This latest version is hands down, their greatest endeavor yet! The old saying, “You get what you pay for”, is nowhere better proven than with Magicscroll. It’s actually a bargain. You will not regret the purchase of this program!
MagicScroll is the one I always come back to
With its flexibility, stability, and speed of editing, MagicScroll is a great tool to get you through fast moving, constantly changing live events and video shoots.
I’ve been prompting on Mac OS since 2003 and have tried many prompting apps… this is the one that gets the job done with the least friction.
The new features are a great addition... in particular, the adjustable text fade out at top and bottom of the talent’s monitor really help speakers stay focused and maintain a good eyeline... which is more important than ever now that everyone’s shooting in HiDef.
Excellent Software for Pro Users
I have been using MagicScroll since the 90's and it has always been the best choice for Mac users. I have used this software for live TV shows, commercials and convention work. It is full featured for pro users. Don't be fooled by cheaper software.
The software is easy to learn and is much better that the industry standard PC software. The new upgrade offers a lot of new feature that my clients really like.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
