Striking slide presentations on your iPad

Create Stunningly Effective Slideshows

Haiku Deck, (an iPad app) lets you to create striking slide presentations. There are a number of simple templates, with premium designs you can purchase.  Because the app limits how much text a user can put on each slide, the focus is on the image or idea - not on lines and lines of cramped text.

Haiku Deck lets the user choose from Creative Commons images for each presentation. Type a few words on a slide, and Haiku Deck searches for pics large enough to fill the slide. (Users can also upload images from their iPad or import images from a number of sites: Flickr, Picasa, Instagram or Facebook.) Sign in with Twitter, Facebook or create your own account.
