Voice tracking doesn't work with laptop despite microphone permissions. 1/5
Voice tracking doesn't work with laptop despite microphone permissions.
100% Worth It 5/5
I have been using PromptSmart Pro weekly for two years to give sermons at my church. I typically use an iPad, but have also used my iPhone and my MacBook Pro. This software is virtually flawless. It is by far the best speech recognition engine I have tried, it is easy to learn, and it has never let me down before a live audience. I am a good writer, but I have problems with memory when I try to give a speech live. PromptSmart Pro is a lifesaver for me. Every time I forget what I am going to say next, PromptSmart Pro has correctly moved the teleprompter to the correct next line in my sermon. This allows me to speak fluently and flawlessly while focusing my attention on my audience, not on my text. In my past career, I was a VP of Products in the software industry (I led the creation of Rosetta Stone language learnning software), so I know a great product when I see it and use it. PromptSmart Pro is a great product.
Does not work 1/5
By Tesla PRG
Reloaded, restarted, toggled mic permissions, talked from one foot away, five feet away, twenty feet away, spent an hour trying to make it work. This is the first app in twenty years that made me want to break me device it is sooooo bad.
AWESOME APP 5/5
By The Real RJ Smith
WORKS SEAMLESSLY WITH ALL APPLE PROGRAMS
Used to work… 2/5
I used to use this app all the time, but now I can’t see my script without opening it in the playback mode. This means I can’t edit or change anything without creating a new script. When I click the edit button, it shows me a blank screen with a cursor. The cursor moves when typing, but you can’t see anything as if it’s set to white text that can’t be changed. I haven’t tried anything else yet, but it might be worth looking.
Worth it! 5/5
Great app, no bugs, and a lot of use case.
What a waste of money 1/5
Auto scroll skips lines. Then I did 5 takes of my first script and told it to save it. Well it’s not saved. I guess the only way I can save it is to pay more money for their cloud service. I’m going back to my old app.
So worth it! 5/5
Found this app and so happy I did! I’m getting ready to start recording an online trenching program and this will help me stay on topic and look at the camera. Can’t wait to use! Oh am importing my script …amazing - the voice control is what sold me!
Lots of room for improvement 3/5
If you are using this app with an external camera that has a phone cradle with a mirror, like the Parrot Teleprompter, the narrowest width setting is not narrow enough, especially if you are using the app on a bigger phone like the iPhone Pro Max. Eye scanning reduction is important, and you will definitely look like you are reading what you are saying. Also, there should be a means of slowing down the scroll speed. Sometimes the speech recognition hears you say a line, and the text jumps up the screen making it easy to get lost. Finally, I’d recommend skipping the remote add on app, which is a bit half baked.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By marketing missy
Sometimes it jumps forward too fast, other times it doesn’t scroll at all. Really screwed up my live broadcast. I sent a message to support from within the app and never heard anything back.
Completely frustrating experience 1/5
No instructions whatsoever, I had to find some random guy who gave a tutorial on YouTube for some basic help since I had never used a teleprompter app before. how to use this, and even when I learned how to use it the functions did not work at all. It sporadically tracked my voice-- just now and then. I never knew when it was going to track it and when it wasn't. I would go to change a function and I would get the spinning ball forever. Whenever you try to change a function, you'll get an annoying pop up warning sign that the function won't take place until you are in "presentation" mode. There is no way to turn this incessant warning sign off as you are trying to figure out the right combination of functions in order to get this thing to work. I even tried upgrading my iphone software, to no avail. waste of time and money, a refund is in order. Wish I could get the 2 hours back I wasted on an app that promises a lot and does not deliver
Almost worth it 3/5
The AI assistance follows your voice alright, but there's no option to lock into landscape mode. The in-app support ticketing system is broken, but emailing support turned into an unproductive back and forth in which they insisted I need only use the native iOS lock feature or reinstall the app, when it's clear that iOS only locks in portrait mode on iPhone. Will be requesting a refund.
Voice prompts freeze up and does not work 1/5
Save your money if you are looking for a voice activated teleprompter. This one does not work as the app freezes and does not advance the script on its own. I had to stop recording 5 times during an 8 minute video to advance the script manually. Very frustrating. I am very disappointed in the performance of this app.
New user 5/5
By Doctor McQ
Works great just as I had expected following my prompts even if I go off script.
Voice track is broken 2/5
Once track is choppy and jumps, skipping several lines at a time. This should be a lot smoother guys!
The switch to subscription 1/5
It’s crazy to charge a month sub for the remote functionality that was once a part of the app not to mention the terrible voice scrolling. If I could give this an even lower ranking.
Could be so good 3/5
I have a bunch of suggestions; can we get more use of the native iPhone camera app? Being able to use portrait video? Zoom? Etc? Also the script clips off at the top ; I’d like to be able to adjust it down a smidge so it doesn’t go off the screen at the top.
Voice tracking no longer works 1/5
I’ve been using this app for a few months now and it generally works great. However, it seems after the most recent update that the voice tracking is now somehow broken. It refuses to track with my voice no matter what I do
Buggy and VoiceTrack does not work 1/5
Downloaded with hopes of using it in conjunction with Little Prompter.
The settings toggles are interlinked and buggy.
Worst of all, there’s no option to lock the screen while it’s horizontal, and the flagahip feature Voice Track does not work AT ALL for me even though it has Microphone access.
Would be happy to update my rating to higher if the team finds out what’s wrong with that, but until then, this app is unusable.
Every time I use this… 1/5
Every time I use this app I hate it and I love it. When it’s working, it works well. The problem is, I spend anywhere from 1 to 15 minutes. Trying to get it to work. I have also been halfway through a 20 minute presentation when it bugged out and deleted my video. Also the video quality and the sounds quality are greatly diminished when using this app, it makes the video sound and look low quality
Features I paid for became monthly subscriptions 1/5
By HanShakes Media
I paid for this app and now it says I need to pay monthly to use it with the remote app. However this feature I used just fine before. And the app is buggy anyway.
Buggy, Unusable Voice recognition. 2/5
Unfortunately the voice recognition only works some of the time. I’ve finally given up using it due to this bug which is super disappointing after the hefty expense. if it worked as described I wouldn’t mind the high price but as it is now it’s a mediocre app not worth more than a couple bucks.
I have an iPhone 13 mini so it shouldn’t have a compatibility issue.
Makes Your Podcasts and Videos Better 5/5
I purchased the Pro app a few days ago and it’s already changing the way I do business videos and podcasts. I’ve been an off-the-cuff speaker for years. Maybe a few notecards or a sheet of paper with the quotes, but never a script. PromptSmart is so easy to use that scripts have become the easiest way to product quality content. I also had a question for support and got a quick and accurate reply — thanks Jeremy!
The app lags and is super slow! 2/5
This app is in major need of an update. Really frustrating working with it, especially if you are using icast, which is a feature in paid version, connectivity is super slow!
Very disappointed! 1/5
I bought this app with a lot of anticipation of using it to script my podcast. I read through the sample scripts and it followed me with ease. When I uploaded my own word document, the voice track follows me for three sentences and then just stops following my voice. Very frustrating!
Doesn’t Work 1/5
By Industrial Actor
This app is useless. It didn’t work unless I was standing one to two feet from my phone which completely destroyed the purpose of having a teleprompter. I was in an absolutely quiet room with the door shut, so it’s not like there was an echo or audience noise. It’s literally the room where I shoot my audition self-tapes for film. Ridiculous waste of my money, and I’m incredibly frustrated.
Not great, but it works 4/5
Not great, but it works IF you’re fairly close to the device. (Why do we need to keep pressing the play button?)
Great when the voice track works. These days it’s frustrating 3/5
By Chandy Choe
These days the voice tracking isn’t work and thus the scrolling doesn’t work either. It just sits there. I bought this app specifically for the voice track. Please fix and improve. This is on an iPhone 13 Pro max
Useless software 1/5
Good luck trying to control the scroll remotely for this app that you have to pay for and then have to subscribe further for the remote control feature. Still won’t connect the two devices on the “Local Network”. Hours of my life I can’t get back and money.
Doesn’t follow voice 1/5
By Stacey Monroe, music
Really frustrating experience with this app. I wish I had saved my money and not bought the full version because it won’t detect my voice or it would start and then soon after stop working. I’m now looking for alternative options as I’m here in my studio and ready to record but now I have no way to have my script scrolling properly with this app. Disappointed…
I Have Had A Bad Experience 1/5
By alton 20213462021
I paid 20$ for the app then they switched the app to a subscription. They also charge even more to add a digital remote. I am so angered that I paid 20$ for the app with that type of money they should include a virtual remote for free. It’s really a no brainer. The app is not operational with voice recognition. It seems like it doesn’t hear black voices very well bc my white wife says the same words that I say but it recognizes it. Hmmmmm I know that a racist app is not possible right lolol no seriously I’m a little disturbed with the app bc it has not worked properly for me.
By CSC 123
I just purchased this app (specifically for the voice tracking). The voice tracking does not work at all.
Bad update changed things for the worse 4/5
By Nadia Valentine
There is now a bottom translucent menu that blocks the play button. Also you can no longer go directly from the rolling teleprompter to the settings menu to flip the text or change speed or size. You now have to bounce completely out of the teleprompter to do anything. I don’t know who FIXED this app but it used to be great.
By Jay tee iii
This app is so buggy. From the text disappearing in edit mode, to the speed of auto scroll varying. I have to jump thru hoops to get the thing to not scroll at 100mph. Putting giant spaces in between sections to try and anticipate. When it works, it’s great. But...Sigh.
Could be great 3/5
I’ve been using this app for over a year. Every time there is a slight room noise it distracts the software and my script freezes. Silver lining- it’s great at helping you memorize a short script after 30 takes.
What a great app 5/5
By Saved 64
This app works excellent! It has enable me to do what God has called me to do.
Stupid app 1/5
This app is super annoying and buggy. It constantly deletes whole scrips that I wrote and it freezes once you finish recording a script
Just Doesn’t Work!!! 1/5
By Meridian Driver
I tried this and another tried it with me 6 separate times. It stops advancing after the first line or two.
It flat out does NOT work. Don’t waste your money!
Don't waste your time 1/5
Anything over one minute and it just freezes up and wont follow your voice.
The voice recognition has come a long way so the prompter can match your reading speed precisely. It’s an amazing app.
JUST GET IT! 5/5
By Paola S. Bueso
Wow! I am so impressed by this app. I’m a total newbie to filming videos and using this app gave me the ability to record myself in record time and appear much more competent and confident on camera. I had previously tried to memorize my scripts and it took hours of work, not to mention all of the extra time and effort it took just to get the right shot and then edit all of my ums and other filler words out of the final video. I’d also tried other teleprompter apps before and the speed thing was such an issue. I just couldn’t get it to work for me. It felt so forced. Now this app has completely changed all of that for me! The voice recognition feature is an absolute game changer. All of a sudden I am able to record videos in a few minutes instead of what felt like an eternity. This is something that seemed so far from reach for me before and all of a sudden it’s a possibility thanks to this app. Now that I use this app I actually enjoy turning on my camera and recording my videos. I use my noise cancelling lapel mic and connect it to my phone using the adapter and it works really well. Honestly this app is such a valuable tool and the best $20 I could have spent for my video production. If you are on the fence about trying it out I’d say, try out the free version to test out that the voice recognition works well with you and your microphone and if so then go ahead and get it. Just make sure that you are using a microphone that is actually connected to the phone (NO Bluetooth), speak clearly, avoid having too many background sounds and you are golden. Seriously tho, my parents where vacuuming and my neighbors dog started barking very loudly during my first test and it still worked great so I guess it’s kind of resilient in that sense. Thank you so much to the developers and the team that created this! I am super grateful! 😀🙌🙌🙌
Does Not Work 1/5
I've tried everything for the last 48 hours to create one video and it does not follow my voice. It stops the majority of the time and when it does work, it then moves too quickly. I've changed the settings, reset my iPhone, made my space completely silent to ensure it wasn't picking up any outside noise, moved it as close to my face as possible to see if maybe it was not hearing me...nothing worked so I wasted my $ on this one.
You’re client will fire you 2/5
When it works, it’s ok. However, it freezes over and over. They placed the “start/stop” button directly over the iPads “split screen” button, so you need a finger the size of a straight pin to hit it. NOT for PROFESSIONAL USE!
Most of my time is spent waiting for this app to work.
No worth it. Free is better 1/5
This doesn’t teach you or show how to use it.So it’s pretty much worthless.
Upgraded and Regretted It 1/5
The app is great but the subscription upgrade is awful. I’m now constantly dealing with bugs and the app telling me I’m not subscribed when I am according to my Apple account.
Good app but why only 720p Video? 4/5
By 'Get a Roof, Get a Gun' guy
I do a lot of social media and video recording. The teleprompter on this app is awesome, but only being able to record in 720p is a total drag. For $20, it’s a great value, but today’s video needs to be 1080p minimum. Are you planning on upgrading this?
By Kyle - A post sound guy
So far this is great! Love the auto scroll. Only thing I would request is feature to set how fast it transitions. I think if it just scrolled the speed automatically vs jumping to the new line it would be a little easier to read for the larger texts.
Forget it if your on M1 2/5
The current version VoiceTrack does not work with the M1 iPads. They don’t bother letting you know until to submit a ticket. Then they tell you they have no idea when they will fix it. They suggest you buy another program they have which is way more complicated and cannot be used in your iPad unless you use sidecar. I cannot figure out if this program called PromptSmart studio edition even has VoiceTrack.
