Working for a business today may often mean you're going to have to handle some presentations. Whether you're doing one at a conference or with your co-workers, technology today has made presentations easier than ever. For those who own any smartphone or tablet device, here are five apps that you may want to download to make presentations a lot easier:
Keynote has constantly been rated as one of the best presentation apps on the market. Allowing you to implement your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, Keynote gives you the power to edit and create your slideshows. On top of that, this app also features some great built-in templates, slide transitions and the ability to transfer PDFs.
If you're really into this app, also consider downloading another app that works with the software. Known as the Keynote Remote, this app will turn your smart phone or tablet into a remote. That way, when you're walking around or presenting, you can flip between slides with a push of a button.
Similar to Microsoft Office, QuickOffice gives you the power to not only create presentations but word processing and spreadsheets documents. Equipped with a powerful presentation app, you will be able to do everything you could on your computer. The best thing about this app is that you're able to present your slideshow using a VGA output.
Prompster is a little different from the apps mentioned above. Instead of showing a slideshow to the crowd, this app will turn into a teleprompter. That way, you will know exactly what you will have to say to get your message across. Before your presentation, you can add audio, words and categories. You can also transfer .txt files to your device if you already have the notes ready. With this app, you will no longer have to worry about bringing along messy flashcards or notes.
Penultimate is an awesome app for those who are going to present to a smaller crowd. Allowing you to write notes, you can get your message across when you talk. Hook up your tablet or smart phone to a larger screen so that the viewers in the room can see your ideas on paper. After the notes have been taken, Penultimate allows you to save them for a future date. Once they have been saved, you can convert them into an easy to read PDF.
5. Presenter Pro
No matter how often you speak in front of crowds, there's a good chance that you're going to feel nervous. This is only nature. With Presenter Pro, this app is going to make you a better speaker. It will include practice exercises, simple tips and references to help you become a better speaker. Watch videos, learn new words and even learn the art of gestures. With hundreds of exercises, this is the perfect app for those who want to go from a rookie to a pro.
