We all know the appeal of refrigerator magnet poetry. Imagine if, after composing a phrase, you could hit “play” and hear your composition performed – with that one-of-a-kind, over-dramatized delivery style, punctuated with pauses…That’s Shatoetry.
Shatoetry gives users the ability to arrange words - composing phrases, messages, greetings or even poetry… and William Shatner recites what they’ve written. Users can save their creations (“Shatisms”), send them to their friends via email, and share them via social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter). Multiple users (“Shatoetists”) can co-create Shatisms together (in the app’s co-op mode) and collaborate online. Every word has 3 different variations in delivery providing users creative freedom. Users can also add to the dramatic pauses between words (so Shatneresque!) by inserting “Space Bubbles”. Advanced users may use it to compose poetry and haiku… but the more practical creations are simple sentences, phrases, word juxtapositions… even individual words sent in Mr. Shatner’s voice as messages, comments and communications to friends. Occasional updates (Valentine’s Day, Halloween, summertime, winter holidays) keep the app fresh with both visual content refreshes and special words that encourage communications to celebrate the seasons. Functional wordpacks (names, numbers, dates, greetings) enable practical communications. Special content wordpacks (space pack, gamer words) add another layer of fun to the app.

I am pleased to present to you my official app.

I created it to invite you to collaborate with me – through Shatoetry.

Shatoetry lets you arrange words to compose sentences, statements, phrases, messages… and hear me perform them for you.

That’s right: You author it, and I’ll recite it.

And what do we call that? A Shatism, of course.

You can save the Shatisms you create, send them to your friends by email, and share them through social media.

You can team up with other Shatoetists through GameCenter and co-create with your friends online. Or pass it around the room to take turns Shatoetizing with that person next to you.

Some people like to use it to compose poetry and haiku… but the more common and practical creations are simple sentences, phrases, word juxtapositions… even individual words sent in my voice as messages, comments, and communications to friends can be really fun.

You’ve heard my spoken-word performances. But until now, you’ve only ever heard what I wanted to say. This one-of-a-kind app makes it truly interactive for everyone. It’s a way for you to express your thoughts and your ideas, using my voice.

Now when you want to say something, with Shatoetry on your iPhone, I’m there to say it for you!

So give it a try. And happy Shatoetizing!

My best, Bill
