Taking On Fear Of Public Speaking - Sush Mobile
Taking On Our Fear Of Public Speaking Takes Sush Mobile To The Top Of The Charts
Speak Like a Pro, the new Sush Mobile-developed iOS app that can turn anyone into an engaging, confident public speaker, is proving to be a hit, sitting at No. 9 in the iTunes business app charts within 48 hours of its launch.
And in the two weeks since its launch, Speak Like a Pro, designed and developed by mobile device app developers Sush Mobile for 3CIPS, has climbed the business app chart steadily, reaching as high as No. 3.
Sush Mobile designed the innovative, user-friendly app as an interactive way of improving users' public speaking skills.
Speak Like a Pro can turn even the most phobic public speaker into a pro, with a suite of tools that help the user enhance the way they speak in order to appeal to an audience. These tools include showing the user what an ideal voice sounds like and how to mimic this, how to make speech cleare r and more audible, and how to increase projection.
Retailing on iTunes for $1.29, the app works by recording users reading a speech from the app, and then using sophisticated voice analysis to score their performance and offer advice on how to improve.
"There's a huge emphasis these days on technology that helps us communicate - but almost nothing that helps with our most basic communication tool - speech," says Sush Mobile managing director Sulabh Sharma. "These days public speaking is very much a part of most work environments in some way, yet so many people are terrified of public speaking or they know they just can't seem to engage their audience, and we wanted this app to address this issue.
"We think one of the reasons Speak Like A Pro has gained in popularity so quickly is that it's really useful for people who need to make presentations and speeches as part of their jobs - but it's also a fun app that's highly entertaining," Mr Sharma says.
Sush Mobile and 3CIPS have worked closely with two of the world's top voice and speech experts Gabrielle Rogers and Gerry Sont to make sure the coaching offered by Speak Like a Pro is professional, practical, and most importantly, effective.
The immediate success of Speak Like a Pro is proof there is a huge demand in the marketplace for mobile apps that offer intelligent, practical solutions to everyday problems - like fear of public speaking, says Mr 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.
"At Sush Mobile we specialise in apps that add value to businesses and which are both practical and entertaining for users
"With use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets skyrocketing, we think the future of mobile apps is wide open - and hugely exciting."
