There are multitudes of Smartphone apps being developed almost every day by mobile app development companies. But, not all would suit your needs. Handy presentation apps are hard to come by.
Creating a business presentation for the general audience and for your senior management are two different ball games. When you conceptualize and create a presentation that is meant to grab eyeballs from the public, it has to have a killer punch! Here your target would be to create something that’s visually attractive as well as to deliver your thoughts and ideas in an easily recognizable form on the presentation slides.
But when you are to create a business presentation for a potential client or your boss and other high ranking officials of your company, it’s more about the information you put into the presentation rather than the embellishments.
With smartphones becoming our ubiquitous business gadget, it is highly essential to have one or more apps that will help you to create great presentations – right from your smartphone or tablet – without requiring a laptop or desktop computer. Here we look at what we have found to be the top 4 must-have presentation apps for your smartphone, developed by mobile app development companies, starting with a reverse chronological order.
4) Quickoffice Quickoffice is a free app developed by the search giant Google. It is a business category app listed in the iTunes App Store. The latest version available for download is 6.1.2 and it was last updated on Oct 31, 2013. The best feature of this mobile app is that you can create, delete, and edit MS Office suite applications, including Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations right from the comfort of your smartphone.
If you have used this mobile app before, there’s good reason to update it. The latest version enables devices that have the pre-installed Google Drive app to seamlessly sync between the user’s Google account and the various MS applications. Thus, once you sign into your Google account through your smartphone, the docs, spreadsheets and presentations you worked on can be accessed through the Quickoffice app – right from your mobile phone. In a word, you can carry your presentations on your mobile phone at all times.
3) SmartOffice Ever wish to have a 24-7 access to your crucial documents, spreadsheets, and presentations without having to turn on your computer each time? SmartOffice makes it possible! With this incredible mobile application installed on your smartphone or tablet you can create, view, edit, and share your MS Office documents on the go.
What’s more, with the latest version 2.1.27 (updated on September, 2013) you can print your docs using its inbuilt remote printing capacity. Moreover, SmartOffice comes equipped with a PPT Slideshow Mode. You can easily present your PPT to your audience from a single tap on the slideshow icon in the app dashboard. Swipe and tap to change slides; sit back and enjoy the show!
2) Sadun’s Whiteboard Want to get your point across to your viewers on a whiteboard through your PowerPoint presentation? Then get this app installed on your smartphone. This one-of-a-kind mobile application can help transform your tablet into a Whiteboard by enabling seamless connectivity with a television or projector.
