Presenters who use the iPad as their main presentation device look pretty cool (and can use a tablet instead of a computer) – but what they see on their screen, their audiences see. This is unlike on a computer where they can show the audience the main presentation and they can see their notes and a timer on their notebook’s screen.
Brainshark updated SlideShark (the iPad PowerPoint viewer) to have these capabilities.
Three new features include:
- Presenter Mode capabilities – iPad 2 and new iPad users can plug into a projector or TV to simultaneously view slide notes, separate timers for time spent on individual slides and the overall presentation, an animation counter, and current, previous and next slides – all while their audience sees the presentation in full-screen mode. Users can also choose a full-screen mode for both the presenter and the audience. In either mode, animations will display on both screens.
- iPad 1 projector/TV support – First-generation iPad users can now plug in and present to audiences in full-screen mode, a feature that was previously only available on the new iPad and iPad 2.
- Dramatically faster conversions – New processing improvements allow users to upload and convert their presentations three to five times faster than before.
