Speeches — Speaker's notes for public speaking
By Jennifer Venhorst
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Speeches is an App for preparing and delivering speeches and pitches. Prepare speaker's notes and deliver a great speech — perfectly timed — no matter what the occasion.
Be it a wedding speech, business presentation, or evening at the debating club, navigating your notes is that much easier with Speeches as your portable teleprompter.
Prepare your notes directly in Speeches on your iPhone or iPad, or import a text file from Mail or another App (eg Dropbox). You can also email your speech to solicit feedback from friends and colleagues.
Speeches is very useful during your preparation. Organize notes, set a speech duration, and practice to make sure you can finish on time. Having difficulty with a particular section? Jump to any note and continue from there.
Speech prepared, and it's time to deliver. Speeches presents your notes as easy to navigate cue cards. No more juggling of paper notes, or fiddly scrolling in an App not designed for the pressure of public speaking. Just swipe back and forth. Simple gestures keep you focussed on speaking, and not on negotiating your notes.
Speeches goes well beyond paper notes when it comes to keeping track of your time. The onscreen timing meter shows at a glance exactly how far along you are. A second bar shows your progress through the notes. By comparing the two, you can see if you are going too fast or too slow.
In short, Speeches is the App you need to write, practice and deliver your next speech with precision and confidence.

Decent, needs better clock
The program is very strong, best I've seen. But it would be nice to have the option to have a regular countdown clock In the corner. Right now there is no way to know how many seconds are left so that you can end RIGHT on time!
Finally a good public speaking app. Used it tonight on a speech for med school. Worked superbly well. The time tracker is such a great feature too. Got an "A,"so I Highly recommend this!
Not that good for speaking
I bought this app to use as notecards for my speech in English class and was very saddened and surprised when I saw it did not support landscape mode or importing from text.
