PowerPoint Alternatives

We've all heard the phase, "Death by PowerPoint".  The presentation creation marketplace was stale for many many years, but alas, alternatives now exist!  Prezi has risen to the top in terms of mainstream PowerPoint alternatives, but let's dig a little deeper.  With focus on creating presentations on mobile devices, three great startups are gaining traction in this space. - SlideIdea is a presentation app that gives presenters the tools to interact in real-time with their audience. Designed to accommodate mobile device users, SlideIdea helps the presenter engage listeners through the use of the audience’s smart phones, laptops, or tablets - Flowboard is a storytelling and presentation app that allows anyone to make side-scrolling publications with images, text, videos, links, and photo galleries. Whether you have a story to tell, an idea to share, or a presentation to give, Flowboard allows you to create & present right from your iPad, or share to any device. Flowboards are fun, stylish, and entertaining. - Haiku Deck is the simple new way to create stunning presentations – whether you are pitching an idea, teaching a lesson, telling a story, or igniting a movement. Featured on the iTunes “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” lists, Haiku Deck makes it fast and fun to create beautifully designed slideshows you’ll be proud to share. The app has been the top ranked productivity app on iTunes in more than 36 markets around the world.
