Extempore Review 2019
Turn your smartphone into a Teleprompter with Extempore
A teleprompter, prompter or autocue is a must-have for everyone who starts his video career. It is a display device that prompts the person speaking with an electronic visual text of a speech or script. Teleprompters are mostly used in professional studios. But wouldn’t it be great that you can create your own news or videoset with just your smartphone?

My Opinion About The Teleprompter Extempore
When you are going for the first time on camera, it can be very scary. Now, that was certainly the case when I was put in front of the camera. It made me very nervous. Starting with video was very difficult for me. And there is still the other problem, I am not native English.
Once you start to work with a teleprompter you will have a great deal more confidence. You can write your script, let it scroll on the screen and there is no chance that you are going to forget any words. You will be able to deliver the message more effective and with a lot more confidence. Your clients and followers will notice this also.
It’s a really good idea when you are shooting video to invest in a teleprompter. Just writing your script will obligate you to think about your message and make your message clear and effective.
But working with a teleprompter will ask some practice. You need to talk to your public. You need to give the idea that you are speaking to your public and not just reading your text.
I played a little bit with Extempore and in my opinion, it can be a huge help for people that use video in their online marketing strategy. You can’t (for as far I see in their pricing) not go on and on for hours as there is a limit of 10 minutes. But when you want to keep the attention of your viewers, it must be enough time to make the message clear.
I like the fact that I can write the script on my desktop and can access it in the app of my mobile. Extempore is cloud-based so you can work from everywhere.
You can also change the speed of the text scrolling, the app starts recording after the countdown and stops recording when you are done. You don’t see moving arms and confused faces to see if the record button is on or off.
After recording, you can trim your video and share or send it from the app on your favorite networks. In one of the upsells, it’s even possible to add lower thirds.
With your mobile and extempore, you have your own little video set in your pocket. Starting with video doesn’t need to be expensive.back to menu ↑
