People have been waiting for PowerPoint on mobile devices for so long that by the time the mobile apps were released, there were already tons of better apps available. Moreover, the mobile apps for PowerPoint were anything but what users had expected. The most common viable alternative seems to be Keynote or is it?
Previously, we covered a few of the best presentation apps for iPad, which include the famous names like PowerPoint and Keynote, as well as alternatives like Haiku Deck, SlideShark and Power Presenter. SlideIdea is another fine PowerPoint alternative that you can gladly add to this list. It is unconventional, feature rich and has some very attractive templates.
You can begin making iPad presentations using SlideIdea by importing a PowerPoint (PPT) or a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. Apart from that the app also has a native (SLD) format that can be used for making presentations.
SlideIdea has some very nice templates that can be used for making iPad presentations for a multitude of topics. The templates have been categorized to help presenters in picking the right one for their subject matter. The available templates include themes like business, education, lifestyle, nature, travel, music, etc.
The Smart Widget makes it easy to quickly fashion slides by adding text, shapes, images and charts. You can also add YouTube videos to your slides, conduct polls and get instant feedback from your audience.
Another great feature of this app is that you can record your audio and present it with your slides to make SlideCasts. These SlideCasts can then be saved and publish online to your SlideIdea webpage.
SlideIdea also has a broadcasting feature which makes it possible to share your slides real-time with your audience and to conduct polls. You can do all this by using your unique SlideIdea URL. Once your audience visits this URL, they can view your slides, vote in polls and send your messages during Live presentations.
