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, sermon, 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 (e.g. Dropbox, Files). You can also email your speech to solicit feedback from friends and colleagues, and your speeches sync between devices with iCloud.

Speeches helps with 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.

Once your speech is prepared, 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!

Costs a lot, barely works

If you want to spend $5 to get really frustrated by an app during the already stressful process of delivering a speech, look no further. This app will make you shout at your phone. What could be more fun?

Limited functionality

Biggest gripe is not being able to swipe up to down to move from card to card. Awkward to swipe to right with one’s left thumb. Overpriced app.
