App Store Description

The app for face-to-face family conversations or business meetings. Are your conversations dominated by one person, while someone else never says a peep? Try Talking Stick.

Bring conversation back into the family sphere around the TV, and make sure everybody is heard and allowed time to say their piece. Talking Stick facilitates democracy in speaking allowing everyone to be heard, and no one to speak too much. A modern implementation of an old, well-tested method: Only the one that holds the stick is allowed to talk, and the stick is passed in sequence from one speaker to the next.

Fast and simple to get started:
• Enter names of participants (will be stored for next time).
• Select time allowance (total or per person).
• Set a time limit to avoid long-winded speeches.
• Select "Start", and when the speaker is done, select "Next speaker".

Talking Stick tracks the time spent by each speaker, and will show when it is time for the speaker to give room for someone else. Alerts will sound if the speaker exceeds the allocated time limits.
