Can You put a PowerPoint Presentation on an iPhone?


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

During the course of the average weekday, we record videos here on the live stream. Sometimes, I run out of ideas of what to do. So when I threw it out to the chat room for suggestions, Fireworks came up with a good one. He wanted me to check out AuthorStream. On AuthorStream, you can upload, share and discover PowerPoint presentations. Let’s look at the features available to you with your free registration.

  • Send to YouTube If you had set up ‘Rehearsed Timings’ or have recorded audio ‘Narrations’ in your PowerPoint file, they would automatically be available in a video format (MP4 or M4V) which can be shared on YouTube via send to YouTube feature.
  • Share on iPod via iTunes Your presentations will also be available to be downloaded in iTunes. Your viewers can then sync their iPods and have your presentations available even when they are not online!
  • Download PowerPoint As a viewer, you can now download PowerPoint files if their respective authors have given their permission to do so. This is a great feature for those who like presentations and want to use a slide or two to enrich their own.
  • Featured Audio/Animation Presentations Cool presentations get featured and you can view them categorized as Featured Presentations, Featured Audio Presentations and Featured Animated Presentations.
  • RSS Feeds Subscribe to the RSS feeds for categorized groups of slideshows as well as customized feeds for users and tags.

So… instead of emailing a Presentation to someone you need to collaborate with, why not use AuthorStream? You could even use Google Docs or MindMeister. Heck, for that matter, why not check out something like Drop.io?

  3. Before putting PowerPoin to YouTube or iPhone, we all need to convert the PowerPoint to an approriate format first.
    Acoolsoft burning software may do this favor.
    It concentrated in giving the best solution of PowerPoint to Video, PowerPoint to DVD and tips and tricks of PowerPoint to Video and PowerPoint to DVD.
    Helps convert PowerPoint to almost all popular video formats such as MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, MOV and 3GP.

  4. I do know that the mail app supports viewing of powerpoint presentations. However, if there was a app that views powerpoints and stores them right in the iPhone, that would solve the problem.

  5. I actually found this site in my local newspaper. I have never stumbled upon something as useful as this resource in a newspaper before o.O Anyways, I will definitely be using this site in the future, as it looks like a great site to use for PowerPoint presentations!

  6. There are many tool can convert the PowerPoint file to video or flash file. AuthorStream and E.M can convert PowerPoint to video file for free. If there are not many animations and video clips in your PowerPoint, the free tool is enough.

    While Wondershare PPT to Video and Camtasia are more professional I think.

  7. Powerpoint viewing on iPhone is easy. Create a PPt on your PC or open an existing one. ‘Save As’ a Jpeg. It will ask u if u want to save the single slide or all slides. You choose. Then send an email to your iPhone including the Jpegs of each slide they will be numbered. When the email attachme Rd have all opened on your iPhone (this can take some time) save the images to your photos. You can the play the images as a slide show. If you connect an av cable, you can view the ppt on a tv screen or projector

  8. You can watch “Avatar” on a portable DVD player, so why would your “epic” PowerPoint presentation be relegated to the IPhone’s IMAX. What’s the point? Exactly that. Some wasteful meetings don”t have to be endured by the advent of this technology. and families don’t have to be unnecessarily inconvenienced. Yes there is something to be said of distant conferences, but we do in fact have the technology to view a PowerPoint present downloaded from a hand held communications device in the comfort and convenience and relatively thriftiness of our own living rooms. I dare say that the purchase of a new TV with that capability would be cheaper than some of these hotel junkets.
