PromptSmart is the only “smart” teleprompter app. Our patented VoiceTrack™ speech recognition technology is revolutionary because it provides a robust solution to automatically follow a speaker's voice in real time.
Make your video productions less stressful and more efficient. VoiceTrack™ is a powerful and smart prompting tool that will automatically start and stop at the speaker's natural pace, allowing you to focus on other production values rather than film take after take trying to match a pre-set scroll speed to the speaker's cadence. Save time, energy, and keep your talent focused with PromptSmart.
Other teleprompter apps fall short--relying on clunky hardware or pre-set scrolling speeds. We asked tens of thousands of users what they liked most about our prompter app, and over 90% of respondents said "VoiceTrack," calling it "awesome," "astonishing," "tremendous," “easy to use,” a “game changer”—“absolutely brilliant!!!” Our customers tell our story best and PromptSmart products are the highest rated and most frequently rated teleprompter apps in the App Store.
PromptSmart is also an invaluable tool for anyone that engages in regular public speaking, like clergy, educators, politicians, podcasters, audiobook creators, or business leaders. Our prompter apps are useful as a practice tool or to help keep you on-message at live speaking engagements.
If you’re on a budget or trying to film videos by yourself, there is no better companion than the PromptSmart teleprompter app because VoiceTrack starts and stops at your natural pace.

Ratings and Reviews
no there yet...
Works wonderfully when it works... but there are some desparately needed improvements.
#1 At the end of a script, skipping to the beginning brings you to the beginning of the text, but the recognition software doesn't seem to work so well after you've done that so you really have to exit the prompter and restart it to have the voice recognition work.
#2 The back button to exit the prompter is just way too small. I have tried using it in a small iPhone teleprompter case, and the button is so unresponsive that you have to remove the iphone from the case everytime to address the problems of my first prompt.
#3 Clearly the voice recognition gets confused at times and loses sync with what you're saying, there really needs to be either a) word highlighting that lets you know where the app thinks it is in your script, so that if the app gets stuck you know where to read from in order to get it on track again
#4 better import filtering... the app turns apostrophes into garbage. If it can't represent apostrophes properly it should at least have the smarts to turn them into a right single quote.
#5 more import options. i don't want to use drop box or any of the other options... let me accept imports from files on my iCloud drive.
I love the concept of this app... but it's annoying rough edges make it unusable.

Try updating your app to the latest version! This review was written over 18 months ago and relates to version 1.5 of our app. The user interface is completely re-designed, VoiceTrack is more reliable and consistent, and iCloud import is now available. The apostrophe issue is caused by TXT files not being UTF-8 encoded, which is something that can be worked around by changing your TXT file encoding to UTF-8, or simply switching from .TXT to .RTF file format.
Customers using our new 2.0 apps tell us every day how VoiceTrack has changed their video productions for the better and how it helps to relax amateur speakers unaccustomed to being on camera or reading from a teleprompter. And of course, there are other scrolling options if, for whatever reason, VoiceTrack is not suitable, like a pre-set scroll speed and/or a remote control (IAP required).
Give us a try! We'd love to have you back after all this time. If you continue to experience issues, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would gladly be of assistance. Also, we published resources on our website to help customers learn how to get the most from the new 2.0 apps and what they can do:
Voice System is buggy
This app shows promise. We really like it's layout and features. But the one critical component, voice recognition, is very buggy. We've been working on it for few weeks, following the tips, re-formatting our documents, and checking our microphones. We are in a very quiet room with a very good speaker and a clear microphone and at random times the prompt will just scroll about a page or 2 leaving the speaker unable to continue. It happens at random areas too, meaning on take one it might do a random scroll in the middle, on take two it might do a random scroll near the beginning and take three might have a random scroll near the end. Maybe in the future they can clear this scrolling issue. We have found another teleprompt software that is more stable. Thanks anyway and good luck!

Hi there. Our newest app version 2.0.5 should provide a better and more consistent VoiceTrack experience. This review was written over a year ago and relates to app version 1.6 - a lot has happened since then! Customers using our new apps tell us every day how VoiceTrack has changed their productions for the better and how it helps to relax amateur speakers unaccustomed to being on camera or reading from a teleprompter.
And of course, there are other scrolling options if, for whatever reason, VoiceTrack is not suitable, like a pre-set scroll speed and/or a remote control (IAP required).
The Latest Update Has Issues
The latest update of this application breaks the scrolling feature. For some reason, voice-recognition scrolling stalls about halfway through longer blocks of narration. This is maddening when you are trying to shoot video and are up against a deadline. I had to reset the teleprompter many times and could not get the shoot completed. This led to a lot of lost time and an angry boss who doesn’t get tech and can’t understand why there were delays... :/
Before the update, this application performed very well. It had no trouble scrolling, and was very simple and easy to use. Why couldn’t the developers just leave well enough alone?
Bottom line - It seems that after one or at most two minutes of use, the teleprompter stalls and will no longer recognize input. Please fix this ASAP!

Our latest software update should provide a much better experience with VoiceTrack (v2.0.5). Try updating your app to the newest version!
We recommend deleting the app and re-installing it fresh from the App Store for the best performance -- it was a big update and a number of folks have reported that a clean install has solved a lot of problems they were experiencing with version 2.0.5. Just remember to back up any local app data (like scripts and recordings) before you delete it so that you don't lose anything.
