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 stylize your deck, and additional themes are available for purchase at about $2 a pop.
In addition to the themes, Haiku Deck 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, reorder slides, or do anything else, it's just 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 simply stunning. Audiences will be grateful you use this app; rather than slides stuffed with too many ideas, ugly clipart, and other hallmarks of terrible business presentations, the Haiku Deck slides are elegant and emphasize your points.
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.
