Since the launching and released of mobile devices, businessmen and professionals went mobile. This everyday working style is understandable for professionals and business people to get more customers, clients or business partners. The economically active population has to keep on moving, meet people, discuss and prepare business presentations outside a four-cornered office room. Thanks to a number of technology companies who keep on launching high-tech tools, gadgets and computer apps to help mobile professionals perform critical daily routine with ease and with style.
For mobile and economically active population, devices called iPad and iPhone aren’t just hot new consumer devices. Almost every week, new computer applications or programs are being developed and released by individuals or by companies making it available for sale or free use. These devices, gadgets, computer apps or programs are powerful and increasingly popular tools for business. Here’s why.
• You can turn your iPhone or iPad into a pointer and controller for PowerPoint Presentations or your Keynote presentations. Pointer Remote for PowerPoint and Keynote is a productivity app by Zentrophy Software and is available for free at their website. However, it doesn’t work with computers running on Windows. You need to use a computer running Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.5. Also, you need to download a Mac application PointerServer before you use this Pointer app.
• Last week Presentation Link, a productivity app for interactive presentations on the iPad was released and is now available at the App Store free for a limited time. This presentation app is a must have for presenters like you whether you use your iPad for one-to-one presentations or in front of a large audience because it is a powerful tool to create and show interactive presentations. It can integrate videos and set hyperlinks for a truly touch-enabled, mobile presentation experience. One more thing that I loved with this productivity app for presentations is once you have this app you can also use your existing Power Point presentations or Microsoft Templates . All you need to do is simply print the PowerPoint slides you prepared for the presentation using Powerpoint templates as pdfs or images and import them into this app for iPad.
• Another presentations app available at the App Store is called Conference Pad. This app is designed both for iPhone and iPad, and it can control a presentation on up to fifteen iPads and iPhones from your device, simultaneously and wirelessly over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. With this app, your presentation will be displayed seamlessly on one or more external screens or projectors attached to iPads and iPhone 4s. This app is definitely perfect for that lasting impression with a high-tech touch, a better replacement for the traditional PowerPoint slide-printouts. Using Conference Pad app, the presentation display is fully under your control when you change pages, pinch to zoom and pan around, or tap-and-hold to activate the laser pointer. The juicy thing about this app is that it allows your other presentations made using other computer tools or programs such as Keynote and PowerPoint be displayed and presented using this Conference Pad App. You will only need to download a free app called Conference Pad Loader which can use the program Keynote to automatically convert Keynote and PowerPoint Backgrounds presentations to PDF before displaying them using Conference Pad on an iPad device.
Other iPad and iPhone apps you can use are SlideRocket HTML5 Player for the iPad, AirSketch and PowerPresenter. Having and using a couple of these high-tech mobile devices and apps will have a great impact on your productivity as a mobile professional and presenter. So what are you waiting for? Travel light and present strong using any of these mobile devices and apps, which helps to control the future of your business.
