Prepare and deliver a great speech

Speeches is an app for preparing and delivering speeches and pitches on your iPhone or iPad . Prepare speaker's notes and deliver a great speech — perfectly timed — no matter what the occasion.

Be it a wedding speech, Pecha Kucha event, business presentation, or evening at the debating club, navigating your notes is that much easier with Speeches as your portable teleprompter.

Prepare and organize 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 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.

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.
