Need to give a world-class presentation, sales pitch, or school report? With Present Pad, your iPad is your slide deck—or portfolio, or sales brochure …

Present Pad knows that presentations rarely go exactly according to plan, so it knows how to adapt to give the best presentation possible: it displays your presentation in a flexible grid to allow you to present your slides in whatever order the situation calls for, it quickly jumps between different parts of the presentation, and it transitions easily between showing you all your slides and showing a single slide.

★ New and Noteworthy Business App on 7/1/2010 ★

★ Number 1 Free US Business App 9/19/2010 ★

Present Pad arranges the slides in a grid. Lay out your main presentation horizontally, and add detail or backup slides vertically—no more cramming backup slides at the end of your deck. Or, lay out your artwork or photography portfolio as a grid, grouping similar work together. However you choose to lay out your presentation, you can zoom in to a single slide and swipe in any direction to navigate to adjacent slides.

Creating a new presentation is simple. Use your favorite presentation editor (Powerpoint, Keynote, etc), and save your presentation as a PDF. You can then import the PDF to Present Pad via email, iTunes, or Dropbox.

When your presentation is finished, use the full-screen view to present it right on your iPad. If you’re presenting to a large audience, connect your iPad to a projector and control your presentation using the presenter display (requires the iPad Dock Connector to VGA adapter). The presenter display shows you your full grid of slides, allowing you to jump from the current slide to any other slide in your deck, allowing you to play your presentation like a jazz pianist plays the piano.

Using Present Pad, you can:

• Import slides created with Powerpoint, Keynote, or presentation software capable of exporting to PDF via email, iTunes, or Dropbox.

• Scroll through your presentation, add new slides, and arrange your slides by simply dragging them on the presentation grid.

• Zoom in to a single slide and swipe to switch to adjacent slides.

• Be confident you will never lose your work presentations are automatically saved whenever you make a change.

• Show your slides on a large screen by attaching your iPad to an external display or projector with the iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter (sold separately). Use the presenter display to view the current slide or pick from any of your other slides.

iTunes Reviews:

Humfreak – "must buy!"

Tax Answers gets it right – "If you make customer presentations you know how difficult it can be to present all the right details or quickly have additional details available to answer questions. With this simple, cool and inexpensive application you can arrange all your backup materials to be ready to provide deeper details quickly or keep the presentation at a simple level."

Ferenc Szakacs – "I use PresentPad for some time and I consider it as one of the most useful iPad applications. The ease to find a given slide, to jump to details, or to decide during the presentation to go in details or keep it short is unprecedented. I use to position the main slides in a row, and extend the subjects vertically with details. Based on the reactions of my partner I can decide to go in details (vertically) or go to the next important subject (horizontally)."

Pretty cool!

This is a pretty cool application, I love the Dropbox integration and the interface is fantastic! However I'd like to see Google Docs support as that, I feel is a must have feature!

5/5 stars

great app

It is a very easy to use app. it makes your iPad a real work tool! The backups into the lateral flow of the main presentation is a great idea!

5/5 stars

Extremely helpful app.

I bought this thing because i wanted to be able to do presentations on my iPad, but not necessarily build them on my iPad. I’d heard tons of negative reviews from powerusers about the native Apple app (I think it’s called Presentation? Not sure). I didn’t want a ton of features and crap, honestly -- I just wanted to be able to pop the thing open, show slides at my leisure, and then be done with it. The simple ability to do this would allow me to leave my netbook at home, and that was the goal.

And yeah, with Present Pad, that goal is completely accomplished. I took the hint from another user and set up my slides both vertically and horizontally -- horizontally for continuity, and then, when there’s a slide that has a bit of “depth” to it about one particular topic, I put those slides vertically. It’s very handy, and by far and away worth the little bit of money you pay for it.
