iPad: Haiku Deck makes creating beautiful presentations a cinch and a joy, whether you have design skills or not. You can quickly apply new layouts, photo backdrops and font styles to get the perfect look for your pitch or story.The free iPad app comes with a handful of themes to quickly stylise your deck, and additional themes are available for around $2 a pop.
Haiku Deck also lets you dress up your slides with background images from millions of Creative Commons licensed photos (easy to search through using keywords) or you can import your own.
To add text, change the layout or reorder slides, it's merely a matter of tapping and swiping. The app is designed for simplicity, and the navigation is intuitive and fluid.
Most importantly, the presentations Haiku Deck creates are stunning and emphasise your message without ugly slides stuffed with too many ideas, pointless clipart and other hallmarks of terrible business presentations.
Presentations can be shared via email, Twitter or Facebook, and shared decks can be viewed in any browser at Haikudeck.com. Decks can also be exported to PowerPoint or PDF.
You can download the app now on iTunes and have a beautiful presentation in less than half an hour.
