Ipad Apps I Love: SlideShark

Disclaimer: Not a fan, but PowerPoint presentations are really not that bad if done correctly and sometimes, you just have to use it.

Slideshark, a new App released by Brainshark,  allows users to view PowerPoints the way they were meant to be seen: fully animated, retaining all graphics and fonts…except video…directly on the Ipad. Users must sign up for a free slideshark account and upload a PowerPoint. Within minutes, the Ipad friendly file is created and ready to run.

With the swipe of a finger, users can reliably display presentations directly on the Ipad or through TV or projector connection. As with all things great, there is a bit of fine print.

Slideshark does NOT support certain features of powerpoint including, but not limited to: hyperlinks on slides, embedded videos or animated gifs, slide transitions, triggers, and 3rd party components.

With that said, it is still a great App to have on hand, especially when you are using a school Ipad that is limited by App store purchases.
