2. Confident Public Speaking
There is considerable stress associated with public speaking before a group of several dozen or even hundreds of people. Some people, unfortunately, do not realize that this stress can be effectively overcome (and I do not mean with expensive therapy).
Yes, and this time technology will help us. Who would not want to have a private session to de-stress, using their own smartphone? Confident Public Speaking offers free hypnosis sessions, like “Relax Completely” and “Total Relaxation in 10 minutes”. The video interviews will give you a better understanding of the problem, which is stress. The application will help you to overcome the fear associated with public speaking, which may have been caused by bad experiences in the past. It will teach you how to enjoy the small dose of stress and show you basic ways to fight it.

4. 2Screens – Presentation Expert

This 2Screens – presentation expert has an easy interface with a full screen display, a great integrated whiteboard for drawing on a blank screen and also a slide navigator or web browser to load web content.

SpeakerClock is the perfect app for people who have a tendency to lengthen their speeches but also for those who wish to improve.
