iPad presentationThe iPad can be a powerful presentation tool with its high-resolution display and portability. However, most people are not taking full advantage of the device’s capability, Jonathan Blum writes for Entrepreneur. Make your iPad presentations stand out with these tips.

•  Keep it simple. Don’t bog down the screen with a large amount of text and detail.

•  Use a projector for groups. When addressing a group, consider using a portable projector, such as those made by ViewSonic, Dell or Optoma, which sell from about $400-$600. You can also use AppleTV and airplay to stream your presentation to an HDTV.

•  Set up a remote. Rather than manually flipping slides with your hands, use a remote; it’s less distracting. For 99 cents, you can download an app called Keynote Remote that turns your iPhone into an iPad remote.

•  Go beyond PowerPoint. Try HTML5 presentation players, such as Prezi or SlideRocket, which have presen­tation players custom made for the iPad. SlideRocket is great for ani­mations, while Prezi lays out “mind maps” that show connections be­­tween components of a plan.

•  Add a live whiteboard. Inter­­active presentations are more en­­­gaging. The Air Sketch and Power Pre­­­senter apps let users put notes on docu­­ments and presentations, which is great for feedback and brainstorming.

•  Draw on-the-go. The iPad in­­cludes tools for quickly making flow charts and graphics, such as for brainstorming sessions or explaining business process on the fly. Options include TouchDraw or the more ad­­vanced and expensive Omni­­Graffle.

Exploring new applications with your iPad can help your boss conduct more effective sales conversations and improve business per­­­­formance.

So recently I been using my ipad and iphone a lot because my laptop broke down, and it was a bit of an eyesore. My eyes had to constantly try to adjust to the small screen. As i researched for something to help with this problem, I came accross pico projectors like the optoma pk301 and aaxa p4 projectors. It was a great solution to my problem. It can connect to iphone’s and ipad’s and its a great way to produce a bigger image.
