In a previous post we looked at Ummo, an iPhone app that tracks how often you use filler phrases, such as “Umms” and “Uhhs”, “like”, “you know”. LikeSo is another iPhone app with similar functionality, that also tracks common filler words such a “like”, “so”, “actually”, “basically”, “literally” etc. Eliminating filler words and phrases will help you to sound more authoritative and influential. Not only that, the app can provide you with feedback about the pace at which you speak, helping you to develop self-awareness and a better speaking voice.
If you’ve tried either app, Ummo or LikeSo, why not comment below and let us know what you thought of them!
