Ever fallen victim to sounding stupid during a very important presentation? Be it a school final or a presentation for clients, the last thing you want is for your whole speech to be filled with like, so, um, and other “filler” words.

That’s where the app LikeSo comes in, which will help eliminate this problem for you. By “listening” to your speech, the app counts up how many times you use fillers in an attempt to get you to, well, stop using them. It’s really great not only for presentations but interviews and debates as well. The last thing you want is to keep saying “like” in front of your future employer.

Surveys have shown that the fear of public speaking actually outweighs our fear of dying, if you can believe it. The reasoning behind this is that we are innately afraid of rejection. According to Psychology Today, “And at a primal level, the fear is so great because we are not merely afraid of being embarrassed, or judged.  We are afraid of being rejected from the social group, ostracized and left to defend ourselves all on our own.”

Give LikeSo a whirl, and for more tips on giving a kick-ass presentation, watch this funny and quirky little video below.
