We’ve all seen PowerPoint presentations throughout the years, but with mobile devices there are many other types of presentations you can create. You can make presentations with gorgeous images in the background, or you can record yourself talking over a whiteboard presentation, and so much more. Thing 13 will introduce you to some interesting presentation apps.
Blogging for this Thing
Use at least one of these apps and create a presentation (real or fake doesn’t matter, just play with the tool). Write a blog post about what you think about the app and how you may be able to use it personally or professionally. If you know of another app that would fit under this Thing, tell us about it in your blog, too.
Deck Slideshow Presentations offers a new way to create presentations – one that does not require you to have any design skills whatsoever. Just give them the text for your presentation, choose a presentation theme, and they do the rest.
