Hello Backers,

I know it's been a while, truth is we have been hard at work to push out some new things that I think you might like! More on that in the near future. For now I wanted to share some recent events.

Independence Day Sale

First of all in commemoration of one of my favorite holidays we are running an Independence Day sale for 20% off the Parrot Teleprompter. This sale is running until July 4th on our website, so be sure to let your friends know.

User Manual

We also get requests for user instructions for the Parrot Teleprompter. We now have some basic instructions available and we will continue to add additional manuals for teleprompter maintenance, app instructions, and more here.

App Update

Our app has been available through Android since the get go, and we have held off on windows phone to focus on IOS. I probably get emails every day asking about the IOS app. It turns out that Apple Makes it very difficult to get an app on their store. It took us about 4 months of mostly just waiting for approvals to get it up, but I am happy to report the Parrot Teleprompter app is available for download!  Just search for Parrot Teleprompter in the app store to download it on your phone.

Now that we have the IOS app up we can focus on getting the windows app completed. (Which is just missing a few little things and should be up shortly.)

Once the app is up on all three stores we will push out the next release which will include additional features like looping scripts, disabling the marker, dropbox integration, and wait for it... remote control features! 

Final Thoughts

Once again I wanted to thank you for your support! We have had some great feedback from you guys and it has been a lot of fun to hear about how the Parrot Teleprompter is being used in ways we never imagined.

You may notice I check this Kickstarter campaign less as time goes on. For more immediate support please reach us through our website.

Happy 4th of July,

Brigham Arce

      Something im not getting, is once started, the play button control etc, is towards on the mirror edge and not towards the front where you can easily reset.

      Adjustable margins for 6+ users rocks. Now I can use my Parrot!

      Glad to see the app is out and adjustable margins allow for use on iPhone 6+.

      That said, please add an adjustment parameter for how much text is "dimmed" vs being full brightness. It unnecessarily limits how much the talent can see coming and on such a small device this would be very helpful. As well, please continue polishing Usability as the app feels a little fiddly still especially mounted on the Parrott. Hoping this can become useable enough to earn a place in our production pipeline...thank you.
