It doesn’t work, - I copied my text into the box, in hope of its teleprompter function, and then… nothing. I get a black spec scrolling across the screen. I want my money back, please.

More features - It would be great to have multi-monitor support, with editor in one screen and scroll in the other.

This is a at best a sub-beta version…learn to program! - I am using this on the latest $3k powerbook. One should think that smooth scrolling is not such a difficult thing to achieve with that kind of equipment…but, no: haltingly struggling characters bounce along the screen. Admittedly, I tried to use this for teleprompting right under the laptop camera to get a near-teleprompting effect where one looks into the camera while reading off the text. This requires a bit faster scrolling than just for displaying funny stuff on the screen. It also required precise speed control to be able to make a decent video. Anyway, none of this can be done with this cr-app. The speed is different everytime one fires it up, and it also seems to depend on the software that rund at the same time…seems these guys are stuck in the 80s. Then this would have been considered a feat (on the Commodore 64…;-). Grow up!
