The controller app for the "Teleprompter" app, available on the Mac App Store. (pavonine.co/teleprompter)
Controlling the Teleprompter remotely requires both the computer running the "Teleprompter" software and iPhone/iPod Touch running the "Teleprompter Controller" controller to be connected to the same WiFi network. Teleprompter Controller can also use Bluetooth to control Teleprompter.
Note that this application is useless on its own, and requires the "Teleprompter" Mac app, available here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/teleprompter/id417605357
Teleprompter Controller has been updated with a slick new look and support for Teleprompter 2.0.
Please note that this version breaks compatibility with Teleprompter 1.1.
• Control multiple Teleprompters at once, and select individual documents for control.
• Dark mode for use in dark environments.
• Support for optional password protection.
Ratings and Reviews
The app works as expected. I like the fact that I can have more than one project and the mobile app can see them. The app response almost in real time, close enough that most will never see any latency.
After a few minutes I have to reconnect to the project from within the app. I would give 5 stars if the app would just stay connected during my sessions. With no updates to this app for some time now, I’m subject to believe they have abandon this app...
It would be nice to set a different speed when going in reverse.
Controller doesn't work
Like other reviewers the Telepromoter controller doesn't work on my iPhones. On my iPhone 6+ it won't even load. I tap the icon but nothing happens. As the last update was in 2011 i wondered whether it hadn't been configured for the 6 so I also tried it on an iPhone 5S. On the latter it loads but it's just an image and none of the buttons work. This app and it's related app Telepromoter version 1.1 are potentially good but are not being maintained. Mr Luke Brody, the developer, is asleep at the wheel. Pity because he has something good here if he'd just keep things up to date.
App for Mac is awesome...app for iPhone, not so much...
The Teleprompter software available by this company on the Mac App Store for your Mac is awesome. Truly. Cheap and VERY useful.
However, the iPhone app lacks functionality. It's awkward, and 2/3 of the time, the speed adjuster on the iPhone app does not speed up or slow down the momentum of the text on the Mac app. If they can get this fixed....it will be a gem. Until then, two stars is the best it will get from me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
