4. The IPad.
Light, fast, and easy to use, let me say I like the IPad a lot for presenting my speeches. However,
it’s really all about the Apps. I’m assuming you know what an APP is before I continue (for the layperson, Apps are applications that help with everyday tasks and are becoming more and more ingenious and popular). The Apps available for the IPad convert a good looking computer into a specialized smorgasbord of speech tools.
I compiled a list of great public speaking Apps the Apple IPad gives public speakers, glorious access to:
- Pages provide word processing for writing out ideas and speeches.
- Keynote allows you to create slides.
- Print Central allows you to print files out that you can’t keep virtual.
- Office HD This app is one of those combo apps that allows you to read or create a word processing file or a slide deck, or a spreadsheet. It’s very easy to use for the public speaker and saves you memory space on your iPad.
- Noteshelf, Carumba, this is a good note-taking app because you can hook it up to the projector and write in real time. In short: your instant white board. It’s great for jotting on the go, capturing audience feedback, ideas, and notes in a way that’s visible to your audience when using large white screens.
- Goodreader. You can easily store video, PDFs, slides, etc – and then play or view them with a click or two. No bother, displaying of videos is ideal for your presentation. And it’s a sinch to transfer video files from computer to iPad with a drag and drop.
- Dropbox. Great for moving large files around and storing them in the cloud. This is a great iPad APP.
- Presentation Clock. A quirky giant timer of great help. Useful for keeping you within time limits.
- Promaster Pro. A useful prompt device to help you with your presentation.
