Speak Like a Pro is an App made by New Zealand developers Sush Mobile along with 3CIPS. Speak Like a Pro is available on iPhone, Ipod and iPad.
This is a great App for anyone who needs a bit of practice or improvement when it comes to public speaking or doing presentations.
The App has recordings of four experts speaking, the user is then asked to read the speech. After the user has spoken, the app then analyses the speech and gives feedback as well as a percentage mark.
Sush Mobile and 3CIPS worked closely with some of the best public speakers around including Gabrielle Rogers and Gerry Sont. The result is a very professional and well developed application. Many people have herd of toastmasters, according to idealog this app is “toastmasters 2.0″.
The idealog post talks to Sush Mobile’s managing director Sulabh Sharma.
“It’s no longer enough for mobile apps to be gimmicky or just reproductions of websites. Users are demanding apps that improve their lives and businesses”
This locally made app looks great, although it is missing something. The hardest thing about public speaking is the fact that you have to speak in front of people!
This app is fantastic for people to get those professional tips and to tidy up their speaking techniques but at the end of the day, if you need help speaking in front of people. Go and speak in front of people.Read More
The official Facebook iOS app for iPod, iPhone and iPad has always been painfully slow, especially when connected to WiFi. The last thing you need when killing time on Facebook is for it to be sluggish. At last, it has been improved.
A recent update from Facebook has finally fixed this problem, of course there is a few other extra updates and changes but this is the largest. I am sure most of you Apple device users out there use Facebook on a fairly regular basis, I certainly do. The Facebook App has always been very slow to do the most basic functions, many people use other ‘unofficial’ apps for Facebook like MyPad as a result.
I am not sure why it has taken Facebook so long but I am sure they would have received a lot of negative feedback about the original App. In my last post, I mentioned that Facebook has been sliding downwards on the sharemarket. Perhaps this update is an atempt to restore their reliable reputation and raise their share value. I predict a slight increase in Facebook shares over the next few weeks.
The other visible adjustment that has been made can be seen in this screen shot

This new update is the biggest from Facebook since the introduction of the Timeline feature. In my opinion it will make Facebook on an iOS device a lot more enjoyable for all users, and it will certainly have positive effects for the company.…Read More
