It's compact size makes it easy to throw in your camera bag and take it wherever you go for your next interview, on location news report, documentary, video blog, podcast, corporate video, video tutorial, or speech.
Ratings and Reviews
Be aware of an annoying “feature”
If you get the Padcaster with the remote, this software includes an annoying feature (as of v3.0.8) that can cause an iPhone on-screen keyboard to go into hiding if the Bluetooth remote is connected… for ALL APPS!
I think it might have something to do with the Bluetooth remote making the iPhone think that a keyboard is connected, but my experience with the problem has been intermittent.
Two fixes that I am aware of to get the on-screen keyboard to come back:
1. Restart your iPhone… PIA!
2. Cycle Bluetooth off .. less annoying.
Other than that, it’s OK.
Update: the good people behind this app actually took the time to ask what the issues I was having were. Whether it was my feedback or someone else’s, the app is working wonderfully, again. I use it and the remote with my iPhone integrated with Dropbox and it works like a charm. Best phone-based teleprompter app I’ve used.
Developer Response ,
Thank you your feedback. Our recent update to the app resolves the issues caused by updates to the Dropbox integration, as well as many other bug fixes. Please upgrade to the latest version, and if it is working well for you, consider giving us a 5 star rating!
Great besides the most ANNOYING bug
The app achieves its purpose pretty well. Great, affordable set up (with hardware) and easy to navigate app.
I film a lot of videos for work and use this to display every script.
That being said, this app has LITERALLY the most annoying bug I’ve ever seen with an app.
Everytime I use it (literally every single time), the moment I’m done filming a script in parrot, my keyboard for my phone disappears!!!
I can’t get it back without restarting my whole phone, it’s INSANE. almost willing to pay triple not to deal with this glitch.
Would be 5 star if it weren’t for that.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix this.
