PRLog - Sep. 17, 2012 - AUSTIN, Texas -- New Custom App Helps Users Adjust or Control Their Talking Speed
AUSTIN, Texas — Sept. 17, 2012 — Rocksauce Studios, an Austin-based smartphone and mobile application studio, today announces the release of its new original app, TickTalk: The Talker’s Metronome.
In the same way that a musician uses a clicking metronome to keep a steady rhythm, TickTalk helps people talk faster or slower. When giving a speech, reading, or even during normal conversation, users can launch the TickTalk app on their Apple iPhones and easily adjust or control their rate of speech.
Details about the app are available at www.ticktalkapp.com.
Rocksauce Studios created the app by customizing the sound and vibration capabilities of the iPhone. Users can set the app to audibly click and vibrate, or vibrate silently, according to the beats per minute (BPM) of six different “personalities”:
“Whether you’ve been told you talk too fast, too slow, or maybe just want some help in between, this app is for you. Choose your desired speed, put it in your pocket, and you’re all set,” said Q Manning, CEO of Rocksauce Studios.
The inspiration for the app came after Rocksauce Studios’ CEO Q Manning heard a radio interview he had given. Shocked to hear how fast he spoke, Manning envisioned a simple vibrating metronome that someone could place in their pocket. After working with Rocksauce Studios Developer Adam Weeks on a proof of concept, TickTalk was born.
TickTalk is available as a free download on the Apple iTunes App Store until October 1st, 2012. It will then change to its regular price of $1.99 after October 1st.
TickTalk is built to take advantage of the larger screen size of the new iPhone 5, as well as new features in Apple iOS 6. TickTalk is also backwards compatible for previous releases of iPhone and iOS.
