Zoom Meeting Timer App Worth Trying

A new option I recommend Toastmasters clubs meeting online consider for displaying timing signals is an app that displays the timing signals as an extra “participant” in Zoom meetings. The creator, Zoom Blue Sky Apps, has agreed to offer a 50% discount off the pro version pricing to Toastmasters clubs. Follow this promo link to try it for free and consider whether the deal makes sense for you.

Disclosure: BlueSky is giving my home club, Online Presenters, a freebie subscription as consideration for promoting their app. We tested it at OP earlier this week, and a representative of the company visited us.

BlueSky noticed I had some search engine traction on the phrase “Zoom timer” as a result of creating my the WP for Toastmasters web-based timer that you can share as a background image using something like OBS Studio. The beauty of their solution is it does not require any additional software.

While I still like my own timer for the way it syncs with the agenda, the best of both worlds answer would be to find a way of integrating my software with BlueSky’s. They haven’t made me any promises, but maybe if the Toastmasters world shows enough interest?

At a minimum, I suggest you check out the free trial.
