Description:

Presentable is a new kind of presentation app that supports local files and web sites seamlessly.

Presentable can import videos, images and PDF/PowerPoint/Keynote documents as slides. But you're not limited to local files, as Presentable also includes a complete web browser. Show live content from cloud documents, YouTube, or wherever you want.

Much of the best content is out there on the web, but a regular browser just doesn't cut it as a presenter's tool. With Presentable, your projector screen will show a pristine web page without any distracting browser borders and buttons. A dual-screen Presenter's mode is also included, so you can view your notes and interact with the web page on your computer screen while showing just the relevant content to your audience.

With advanced Crop and Highlight tools, you can focus the audience's attention on what's essential within the page. For example, if you're showing a YouTube video, you might want to use Crop to remove all the distracting elements and just show the actual video.

Presentable also supports two methods to free your hands from the laptop while presenting. You can use a traditional "clicker"-style remote for switching pages. Another option is the Leap Motion Controller, an advanced gesture controller that allows you to do things like point, click and zoom with your hands in the air.

◦ Features ◦

— Treat web pages like slides in traditional presentation
— Import image and video files
— Import Keynote and PowerPoint files (animations and effects not included)
— Import pages from a PDF document as slides
— Navigate the browser on laptop screen while simultaneously showing on projector
— Click on links and type text within web pages even while presenting
— Slide Notes: add your personal presenter's notes
— Crop tool: zoom in on important content
— Highlight tool: focus your audience's attention on a particular area within the image
— Virtual Laser Pointer tool: point at content on-screen
— Tool Presets: save crop/highlight as part of the web page for easy activation
— Projector Preview: a floating window that shows you what the output will look like
— All common projector screen formats supported (to fit content properly to screen size)
— Single-screen mode for presentations without an external display
— Change slides with keyboard or wireless clicker remote when needed
— Import bookmarks from any web browser
— Share your presentation using Save As PDF

Fanstastic Customer Support - I wish I had found Presentable a week or so earlier. I recently managed a series of presentation where I was given various forms of media including a number of PowerPoint presentations and separate videos. I had to jump back and forth between applications, while keeping my other eye on who and what was up next. With Presentable it would have been so much simpler, I could have loaded up all the PowerPoints and videos in their sequential order and then ran it all as one single Presentable presentation, too easy! As soon as I saw Presentable on the app store I downloaded it, this was probably very shortly after its inaugural debut. I have a retina powerbook and there was an issue with the crop feature. I contacted the developer and he asked for screen shots which I provided. Within 48 hours the problem was identified as specific to retina displays and shortly corrected in the very next Presentable update. Not only was I very impressed with how quickly the problem was addressed and resolved but I was equally impressed with the ease and immediacy of my communication with the developer. It was obvious to me that he was ready, willing and very able to do whatever it took to hear and then address any and all questions or issues. There was no stonewalling or indifference, instead I felt I was being addressed with complete respect as a valued application user whose feedback he appreciated. There could not be a better customer relations experience. We even discussed some future developmental concepts for the application that we both saw as desirable and I came away feeling sure that in short order there will be further improvements, possibly such as video letter-boxing, in the not too distant future.

Great app but - This might someday be a great app to creat slides, the only problem is that it's not easy to us. It explain you a little before you start using it, but its not usefull at all.

Review by DanielleNaomi4

Not What I Expected - I was looking for something similar to PowerPoint. I can’t afford to shell out 300 for Microsoft products. I found this and hoped it would be similar, even finding that the decription sounded wonderful and exactly what I was looking for. Only I stumbled across an overly-simplified app with virtually no tools or even a way to create a half decent presentation for class. It’s simply put- an image collection creator with footnotes.

Version 1.1.1
Review by Paul & Eva

Almost there, not quite. - I was looking for a presentation software to reliably show QuickTime movies for a film festival. I like the support for QuickTIme Movies and the ability to play them from a list onto a secondary display. However, I had no control over playback. They start playing automatically, and you can’t stop or pause them. I would like to have a reliable way to “cue up” a movie and present (play) the movie to the seconday display, with the option to automatically move on to the next movie (slide) and begin playback. Also need to be able to pause the presentation at any time and resume from where I paused. For example, when I now open the app, it loads my last presentation and begins playing the movie on my first slide. I can’t control this (I can’t see it either, only audio). Then when I click on one of the other slides, it begins playing as well. Now I’ve got two streams of audio going on and no ability to make it stop. STOP!!!! AHHH!!!! Some good ideas, and a lot of emphasis on the Leap Motion Controller, but still very much a work in progress. The lack of control over movies is a deal breaker for me.
