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
The best- despite a few bugs.
It worked great until I upgraded to the subscription service. Then I started having all kinds of problems. At that point I gave it a one-star review. However, the company has been GREAT about communicating with me. I have found reasonable work-arounds for my main issues, and I have the impression that they are honestly working to correct the remaining bugs. When this thing works it is absolutely amazing. I have tried all the teleprompter apps I can find, and this one is hand-down the best- even with the bugs that remain. I am looking forward to upgrading to a five-star review when they fix my remaining issues.
Update- I have been using this for several months. They have still not improved the editing feature (it is very buggie). I payed for the extended version because I wanted the script assist feature which is supposed to allow you to place cues within <brackets> and have the script skip over these when reading. If this feature is enabled it causes many issues like randomly jumping to the top of the page. The extended version is just not worth it for my money. Still, it is the best teleprompter app out there.
Update- They fixed everything. Five stars! I am so happy with it now!!!!!
Developer Response ,
We're so glad that the updated app is working well for you! We appreciate the help you provided as we continue to improve the application going forward.
Just bought this app and recorded some things using it. So far it works great. I was surprised at how well it tracked with my voice which isn’t nearly as clear as my wife’s. Even when you go off script it picks back up when you return. I even talked with a weird accent and it understood me. Only disappointment is you can’t use the free remote app with it without paying a monthly fee. I don’t think the remote is necessary. I found it works best with my iPhone 7plus phone turned portrait rather than landscape mode or using the iPad. The bigger the screen the more side-to-side eye movement you can see on camera. So far so good!
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.
