A better speaker (BY APPS2GO) is an iPad Education app that will help you improve the way you speak and includes photos, videos, fun practice exercises for breathing, posture, vocal technique, articulation — and more. Most people do not realize it, but one of the most impactful tools a person has is through their speech. Wars have been started and revolutions have begun by mere words. I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but words are a powerful weapon, so why not learn how to become a better speaker?
This iPad education app spoke to me (sorry for the pun), but my video app reviews and demos require several takes and correct speaking to present various apps correctly and professionally. Most everyone can benefit from some useful speaking techniques, from students to business professionals. This app will teach you some valuable skills presented in an engaging and fun way — providing very relevant instruction in the key areas of speech training. The voice behind this app is Jonathan Tilley, a professional voice over artist who has mastered his voice doing work for large corporations, education lessons, and movies. Jonathan and the developers deliver a great speech training app that has 10 overall packages: the purchase package includes an introduction and 10 exercises, each with specific goals to teach you how to become a better and more proficient speaker.
I found some of the lessons in this app to be rather funny, like the ones where I was pretending to be riding on a motorcycle while blowing raspberries (to get the blood flowing in my mouth, tongue and cheeks), as well as beating my chest while making vowel sounds. Yes, some of the exercises may seem unorthodox, but once you listen to Jonathan Tilley’s voice, you will be riding your motorcycle and beating your chest too, that is if you want to become a better speaker — and as a bonus, the exercises are quite therapeutic as well. The 9 additional speaking/training packages can be purchased for $1.99 each or for a better and more reasonable $10.99 for all. Some may find the price of $14.98 a bit steep for all the content in this app, but even one hour with a voice coach will cost you 10 to 20 times this amount — so, keep the big bucks in your pocket and train at your own pace, if you want to become a better speaker. Also, be sure to watch the iPad video app demo for a complete walk through of this iPad education app. Watch our other iPad video app demos . Crazy Mike

A better speaker iPad App Developers Description
A new way to improve your speech and presentation technique! Jonathan Tilley is a professional speaker and voice-over artist from the US with the experience and know-how to help you. In the course of 110 exercises he will unfold the mystery behind successful, clear and confident speech and unleash your presentation potential. The exercises were developed and conceived together with the author, Jonathan Agar, also an experienced voice-over artist and actor.
This app is the new and improved way to a better command of the spoken word. The exercises address posture, vocal technique, breathing, articulation, consonants, vowels and presentation.
The basis version of the app includes an introduction, warm-up activities and 10 other exercises from the different categories. There are around 20 minutes of audio material to help you complete the exercises correctly and exactly. Try it out and you will learn the tricks of the trade used by professionals at the top of their game.
When you buy in-app supplements you will gain access to almost 2.5 hours of further audio material. Do you need to work on basic breathing techniques or perhaps on your posture? Then all you have to do is buy the corresponding chapters to get the optimum mixture for you and your needs. If you like a challenge, then why not try some of our tongue twisters in the articulation sections? Of course there is the option of taking the whole bundle so you don’t miss out on any of the essential information.
Alongside the written and spoken contents there are comprehensive video sections and you can even record your own voice and play it back to make sure you are on the right track. This extraordinary device offers so much more than a book or a cd which are often in a much higher price range.
Maybe you are interested in improving your vocal capabilities, or perhaps you have to speak in front of an audience every week? What if you just want to tackle a problem with pronunciation, or maybe you work as a professional speaker and you feel the need freshen up your technique? This is the right app for you. You will be surprised at how much fun speaking can be.
At this point I would like to pitch in a special thanks to our dubbing speakers Sandrine Mittelstädt and Dominic Boeer for the great photos that accompany the exercises.
