Best Mac Teleprompter Software [For 2020]

We’ve put together a curated list of the top apps from the Apple Store so you don’t have to waste time sifting through poor quality Mac software.
 
Over the years, tons of teleprompter software has been developed for Mac’s, most of it poorly written and unusable. It’s come a long ways since the early days, even including features such as voice activated teleprompting and the ability to mirror flip PowerPoint slides. To simplify your search, I’ve included the name of the app, where to download it, as well as information such as its key features, price, and video reviews. Each item will have a link to its original listing provided in the description so you can learn all about it before trying it out.
Teleprompter software varies in price, ranging anywhere from being free to costing a few dollars to download. Is it actually worth it to buy them? Sometimes the best things in life really ARE free!

Air Display lets you use an iPad as an extra monitor for your Mac. So at a photo shoot, you can just drag one window onto the iPad with your mouse, put the iPad on a teleprompter, and turn on the “Flip horizontally” or “Flip vertically” switch to accommodate the mirror.
So it’s not an app for scrolling teleprompter text per se; it’s really a way to put your mac content in front of your face. It’s great for being able to look participants in the face in a Zoom conference, or doing a product demo while looking into the camera (for later multi-channel video mixing).
