Can I do a PowerPoint presentation using an iPad?
By: Author Shrot Katewa
I love my iPad, and If you are like me, you would want to carry it wherever you go. It is compact, light and allows me to get things done that can’t be done using my phone due to its small size! In fact, it is so convenient that it makes me wonder if I could replace my laptop with an iPad even for my client meetings?
But, can I create a PowerPoint presentation using an iPad? Yes, you can create a PowerPoint presentation using an iPad. In fact, iPad has a bunch of different apps that allow you to run PowerPoint presentations on it. iPad’s built-in Keynote presentation software also allows you to view the PPT files. You can also install Microsoft PowerPoint to run, edit and create a PowerPoint presentations from scratch on iPad just as you run it on a laptop!
Running a PowerPoint presentation on your iPad is actually a lot easier than you think. There are, however, a few things you should be aware of. Let’s get into the details of the workings of a PowerPoint presentation on an iPad.
How to put a PowerPoint presentation on an iPad?
Sometimes, you may already have a PPT file that was shared by your colleague or a client. However, many a times, it is you who has to create a PowerPoint presentation that dazzles your audience! Creating a presentation that holds our audiences’ attention is hard. We wrote a post that covers the steps that you should be taking while creating a PowerPoint presentation. We’ve broken it down to a step-by-step process that is designed to help you with creating a presentation. (Link – www.owlscape.in/what-are-the-steps-to-create-a-powerpoint-presentation )
If you have already created a presentation using a laptop or any other computer, you’ll first need to transfer it to your iPad. There are multiple ways you could do this. I would like to share my top 3 favourite method as they are free, doesn’t take too much time, and are easy to carry out as it doesn’t require any technical expertise.
1. Transfer the PPT file to your iPad using your email
This is probably the easiest of all the three options. In all likelihood, you may already have received a PPT file from your colleagues through an email. In this case, all you need to do is simply open your email account on your iPad, click on the email that contains the PowerPoint file, and download it.
2. Transfer the PPT file to your iPad using a cloud storage service
Another quick and easy option is using a cloud storage services. There are plenty of cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and even iCloud. Most of these services offer at least a few GBs of free data storage. Simply upload your PPT file from your computer. Then, login to your cloud storage service on your iPad and download the PPT file on your iPad.
3. Transfer the PPT file to your iPad using WhatsApp
Video on how to login to WhatsApp on your iPad
Another great way to download the file directly to your iPad is by using WhatsApp. While WhatsApp is a great way to stay in touch with you friends, it is also great to share files. You can ask your colleague to send the file to you over WhatsApp. All you need to do is simply log in to your WhatsApp account on your iPad, open your colleague’s chat message, and download the file.
What is the best app for PowerPoint presentation on iPad?
In our experience, Microsoft PowerPoint is by far one of the best apps to work with PPT presentations on iPad. You can easily download and use, and if you have an Office365 subscription, it allows you access to additional functionalities which come in handy especially if you plan to edit files on-the-go on your iPad. PowerPoint presentation has been the brainchild of Microsoft, and it has been the leader by a long stretch when it comes to the presentation software.
With Microsoft PowerPoint, not only do you resolve the compatibility issues of the PPT files with software, you also get an interface you are familiar with. You can be absolutely sure that PPT file will look exactly as it is intended to when using Microsoft PowerPoint on iPad.
You can download the Microsoft PowerPoint app for your iPad from the App Store.
Is Microsoft PowerPoint app FREE for iPad?
Microsoft PowerPoint app is FREE to download and use on an iPad. Microsoft realise that the future of technology is more towards smartphones and tablets. Thus, they have a strong focus on providing access to user files on-the-go. Although you can edit PowerPoint presentations on-the-go, if you wish to get advanced functionalities, you may want to get an Office365 subscription. Having said that, most of your basic editing needs are covered in the base version of the app.
Are there any other apps for PowerPoint presentation on iPad?
Absolutely! There are several other applications that you can use to open and edit a PowerPoint presentation on iPad. All the other applications have their pros and cons. We have listed down the top 3 alternatives to Microsoft PowerPoint on iPad. They are in no order to preference.
Keynote is the native software that offers an office suite on Mac and iOS devices including iPad. It has been built from the ground up for iPad and iPhone devices. Needless to say, it is one of the most powerful software when working with presentations.
While Keynote allows you to view, open and edit a PowerPoint file, the overall functionalities are different. We’ve also seen that the look and feel of the PPT file does change when using it on Keynote. However, the changes are not major and if you are only planning to view the major contents of the PPT file on your iPad, Keynote is effective.
2. Google Slides
The best part about Google Slides is that it allows real-time collaboration on projects with its online office suite. This is great especially when your team is not based in the same location as you are.
Google Slides is also compatible with PPT files. It allows you or open, view and edit PowerPoint files on your iPad. Google Slides is FREE . All you need is a Google account to start using it.
3. WPS Office
Image credit – Mr. Phone
WPS stands for Writer (W), Presentation (P), Spreadsheets (S). It is our favourite alternative to Microsoft Office suite. It has been designed with Microsoft Office users in mind. Thus, the look and feel of WPS Office has striking similarities to that of MIcrosoft Office. For all the Microsoft Office users, WPS Office makes you surprisingly feel just at home.
If you are looking to a cheaper/free alternative to Microsoft Office suite that looks and feels just like MS Office, in our experience WPS Office by far the best option for you. It was designed with Microsoft Office users in mind. It was originally launched for Windows, however, WPS Office suite 2019 version has been expanded to both Linux and Mac users as well.
WPS Office is now also available for Mac and iOS users. You can download WPS Office directly from the App Store or visit the download section on their website . WPS Office is FREE to use although simply signing up for an account with them gives you access to premium feature for 1 year.
What equipment will I need to do a PowerPoint presentation using an iPad?
What makes the iPad really powerful is that it allows you to connect to a projector and project the presentation on a bigger screen. This comes in really handy as this negates the need to carry any laptop. Alternatively, if you consider laptop to be your first choice, instead of carrying an additional spare laptop, you can keep an iPad device as a backup just in case your laptop fails to work.
Video on how you can connect your iPad to a projector
There are multiple ways to connect your iPad to a Projector. Two of the most common ways are –
- HDMI connection
- VGA connection
For both the connections, you will need to buy an additional connector cable that allows you to connect the two devices.
Our personal preference is to use the VGA connector. Main reason for this is the fact that a VGA connector allows the sound to be played from the iPad itself as opposed to a HDMI connector. In an HDMI connection for an iPad, the sound is played through your projector. Another reason for preference of a VGA connector over an HDMI connector is that it is more widely available as a default connection option to the projector in most corporate offices. However, connector preference comes down to a personal choice.
So, is it worth it???
We started this article wondering whether we could do a PowerPoint presentation using an iPad, and whether we could carry an iPad to our meetings instead of a laptop. With the availability of Microsoft PowerPoint application for iPad and several other alternatives to open a PPT file on iPad, as well as the possibility to connect the iPad to a projector, we can safely conclude that an iPad can be used as a replacement to a laptop while meeting clients!

PowerPoint for iPad: A Visual Guide
In this first ever visual guide for the iPad version of Microsoft PowerPoint (iPad PPT), we show you step-by-step how to use the app, as well as all of the nitty gritty details behind it that you likely don’t know.
We highlight those “little hiccups” that will drive you up the wall (it’s still not the same experience as your desktop version), and we’ve done our best to show you the workarounds, if and when they exist.
Make sure to note the orange boxes we’ve sprinkled through the guide with pro tips and tricks based on years of experience building PowerPoint presentations…ignore them at your own peril
We will do our best to keep this guide up to date with each new Microsoft update. If you see something that we’ve missed, PLEASE let us know and we’ll do our best to update this guide ASAP.
Don’t have the PowerPoint app on your iPad yet? Download it by clicking here .
Things that go well with your iPad
Here are some useful resources for working with PowerPoint for the iPad:
Microsoft apps for the iPad
If you want to edit or display your Microsoft documents in their native environments on your iPad or iPhone, you’ll need to download the Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, Excel, OneNote, and OneDrive apps on your iPad and iPhone through the iTunes store. Find them here .
Microsoft Office 365
Get automatic upgrades and unlimited storage by signing up for the Microsoft 365 subscription model. Check out the latest of version of Microsoft Office here .
Lightning to VGA adapter
If you’re giving presentations with your iPad, don’t assume the meeting room will have the right adapters for you. So make sure you always bring one with you. I like apple’s adapters as they’re sleek and are 100% compatible with your device.
Again, if you’re giving a presentation in a meeting room and need to play music/video, be aware that your ipad’s speakers will probably not be strong enough to fill the whole room. This super compact wireless speaker hooks up incredibly easily to your ipad or iphone with no software or app necessary, and provides really high quality sound for the price.
Although the iphone and ipad are designed to be light and portable, carrying them around throughout a presentation, especially if you’re moving around a room, can be a bit cumbersome. Keep your device upright and in front of you with this no-frills stand. It will fit just about any device.

FINALLY…PowerPoint on our tablet! Down with the laptop and the desktop! Not so fast…
Although it is EXCITING to finally have PowerPoint on the iPad….there are MANY more versions to come before it can replace the desktop PowerPoint environment.
Until then, PowerPoint on your iPad is best thought of as an “extension” of the desktop experience, not as a replacement.
Yes, with each new PowerPoint for iPad update, you do get some new features, but the vast majority of REAL work that you do in PowerPoint (in our humble opinion) should still be done on your desktop.
Why? Because it’s just plain faster!
Yes, we are biased…we live, die and breath shortcuts on our keyboard AND we use LOTS of tips and tricks that haven’t come onto the iPad (yet)….so it’s okay to disagree with us.
With all that said, this is a GREAT step forward and we are PSYCHED for all the future updates and the new Office 2015.
We hope this guides helps make PowerPoint on your iPad a little bit, if not A LOT, easier for you to figure out.
This guide is organized according to the different Views in the app, and then according to each element within those Views. You can access all of these pieces using the tables of contents bar on the left.
If you want a fast way to find a command, simply hit Ctrl + F on your keyboard to search this page.
In this section, we look at the different things you can do in the Account Settings, such as signing out, signing in, and how to add multiple OneDrive accounts. To do any of these, you’ll have to go into the File View. In the top left hand corner, you have your Account Settings icon (with or without your account picture).
Pro Tip: Instead of signing out of your account, you can add multiple OneDrive services to the same account so that you can access your business and personal files.
If you accidentally get signed out, here’s a step-by-step guide for how to sign back into your account. To sign into your account, follow these 4 steps (click to open gallery & instructions):
Microsoft Account: Sign in with the account you use for OneDrive, Xbox, LIVE, Outlook.com or other Microsoft services.
Organizational Account: Sign in with the account provided by your work, school or university.
Adding a service
Pro Tip: Your Office 365 account starts with a OneDrive service attached to it (whether or not you have anything in it). If you have multiple OneDrive accounts, you can add them to your account (home or office accounts), allowing you to access those files directly on your iPad.
Note: Only Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint, and Dropbox are currently supported on Office for iPad.
In this section, you will learn how to create a new file/presentation, from scratch, as well as some key tips to keep in mind. To create a new presentation, follow these 2 steps (click to open gallery & instructions):
- If you have an internet connection, the most recent version of the file will be downloaded from your OneDrive and will open on your iPad.
- If you do not have an internet connection BUT have previously opened the document on your iPad before, the document will open, but it will not reflect any recent changes made to the version on your OneDrive (if you’ve made any changes from your desktop).
- If you do not have an internet connection and have never opened the document before on your iPad. You will receive a ‘No Internet Connection’ dialog box (below).
- Email as Link: Creates a “View Only” link or a “View and Edit” link of your file and launches the Mail App.
- Email as Attachment: Attaches the presentation to an email, the recipient can open and edit the document natively.
- Copy Link: Creates a “View Only” link or a “View and Edit” link of your file that you can paste into other documents or emails.
Move to Cloud: Allows you to move a presentation stored locally on your iPad onto your OneDrive. This option is only available when working with a file that is stored locally on your iPad.
Remove from Recent: Removes a file from this Recent menu here on your iPad AND on your desktop. This is not the same as deleting a file, it merely removes it from the Recent files list. To delete a file, you’ll have to go into Properties in the Open menu.
Discard Changes: Still not really clear what this does. If you figure it out, let us know.
Properties: Shows you additional properties about your file including filename, location, type, size, author, created, last modified, modified by and company.
Note: You can only create links for files stored on your OneDrive. If you have a locally stored file that you want to share a link to, you first need to move it to your OneDrive before you can create and share a link.
Note: You cannot edit any of these properties from your iPad, you must do so from your desktop version of PowerPoint. However, there are work arounds that will allow you to change the file name from your iPad. To see how that works, check out the section on renaming and duplicating your files.
Sharing: Below the file name, you can see if the document is being shared with anyone else.
Reloading Your Files: If you don’t see a file that you have recently saved to the OneDrive, push and drag down with your finger to reload the file menu. Sometimes there is some lag time depending on the speed of your internet connection.
- To Pin a file: Simply select a non-colored pin
- To Unpin a file: Simply reselect the colored pin
Pro Tip: Keep in mind that pinned documents’ names do not update in this recent list if you change their file name. If you try and open a pinned file that has been renamed, you will receive an error message. So if you pin files and rename them, you will need to do some pin-maintenance either on your iPad or desktop version of PowerPoint.
The ‘Open’ area of the File View is where you will find all of the documents on your OneDrive services, as well as those saved on your iPad. So in this section, we’ll cover how to go about opening your files, as well as some EXTREMELY handy Pro Tips about sharing your documents and editing their properties.
- Email as Link: Creates a “View Only” link or a “View and Edit” link of your file and launches the Mail App.
- Email as Attachment: Attaches the presentation to an email, the recipient can open and edit the document natively.
- Copy Link: Creates a “View Only” link or a “View and Edit” link of your file that you can paste into other documents or emails.
Delete: This is the only place where you can delete files from your different OneDrive accounts or from your iPad.
Properties: Shows you additional properties about your file, including: filename, location, type, size, author, created, last modified, modified by and company.
The Normal View
1. Back Button
The undo and redo commands are the iPad keyboard of the CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y keyboard shortcuts on the desktop version of PowerPoint. Similar to the desktop version, you are given 15 commands in both directions, you can undo undo up to 15 actions, or redo 15 actions.
Note: The Navigation Bar is fixed as is. You currently cannot add other commands to it like you can on a Windows based version of PowerPoint with the Quick Access Toolbar. We hope to see this updated in a later version!
The AutoSave command controls whether or not changes to your presentation are automatically saved and synced with OneDrive. By default, PowerPoint for your iPad is set to AutoSave, which occurs:
- Periodically as you are working within your presentation
- Immediately when you hit the back button to return to the file menu view
Don’t make the same mistake I made – save your presentation!
This might sound obvious, but before closing PowerPoint on your iPad, hit the Back Button to return to the file menu view to ensure that the latest edits to your presentation are saved.
If you close the PowerPoint app by double-clicking the Apple button and swiping up (thus closing the app), you can lose the latest changes to your presentation…not fun!
So to ensure you save your latest changes, hit the button BEFORE closing the PowerPoint app.
If you choose this mode, to save your presentation, you need to either:
- Open the file menu and hit the green save button
- Hit the back button to return to file menu view to launch the Save dialog box
The Name command allows you to edit the name of a newly created AND unsaved PowerPoint presentation. As 90% of the presentations you work on your iPad will not be newly created or unsaved, this option will likely always be greyed out.
For example, if you create a new presentation on your iPad and have not saved it, the name command option is available. That said, as soon as you save the file with a name, this option becomes greyed out (forever).
How do you rename a file on your iPad?
To rename a presentation (or other office file) on your iPad, you either have to:
#1: Duplicate the presentation and save it with a new name. This will create a brand new document, so if you don’t want the older document, you will need to navigate to where it is saved on your iPad, or on your OneDrive and delete it. Painful, I know!
#2: Use the OneDrive app to rename your document (see our blog post on how to rename files in your OneDrive app).
The duplicate command creates a new copy of your current presentation and takes you to the File Menu View to rename your presentation (the same is true for the other Microsoft Office apps on your iPad). This is the Save As equivalent, or F12 keyboard shortcut on your desktop version of PowerPoint.
Note: Duplicating a presentation will not overwrite the original presentation, it will only create a new presentation with the new name you give it.
How to move my Presentation from OneDrive to my iPad:
To move a file from OneDrive to your iPad, you need to open the file, duplicate it and then select your iPad as the storage device. There is currently not a “move to iPad” command like there is a “move to cloud” command.
Note: Files stored on your iPad open faster than their OneDrive equivalents as they do not need to download the latest version.
The restore command gives you a options for reverting back to an earlier version of your PowerPoint presentation.
You can either:
- Back to the original you started with: Revert back to when it was last opened (PowerPoint will give you the specific time that it was opened). Doing so you get a warning indicating at what time the file was opened, so you get a sense of how far back you are going. Note: If this option is greyed out, it means there is currently nothing to revert back to.
- Back to an online saved version of your presentation: Can revert back to an online saved version of your presentation. This option assumes that the file is saved on OneDrive and that you have an internet connection. Selecting this option launches safari and takes you to OneDrive. Log in with your Microsoft account and you will see all of the previous versions of your file by date on the left (assuming you have some) and allows you to revert back to that specific date.
Shows you the properties of your PowerPoint presentation including:
- Last modified
- Modified by
Note: File Properties (other than Name) are only editable on the desktop version of PowerPoint. To modify a presentation’s name, you can duplicate the presentation and save it as a new name, or use the OneDrive app for PowerPoint to edit the presentation’s name on your OneDrive. To learn more about this, check out our article on using the OneDrive App .
The Help and Support button launches basic help, support and tutorials for PowerPoint on your iPad. This menu is not extensive, but does offer solutions to simple questions you might have.
Note: You do need an internet connection to launch this dialog box.
The Home tab
1. New slide
This opens the PowerPoint slide gallery and allows you to pick from the available layouts within your presentation.
The five slide layouts shown in the picture are the standard layouts we use at Nuts & Bolts Speed Training for 99% of all of our PowerPoint presentations, you might have more or less slides layouts depending on your setup.
The Price of iPad Portability
Limited to Inserting Slides Only: You are limited to inserting slides layouts on your iPad. The Slide Master View is currently unavailable for PowerPoint on your iPad.
Changing a Slide’s Layout: You are limited to inserting new slides on your iPad, you cannot push a layout onto an existing slide.
To move an existing slide onto an new layout, you either need to wait until you are on your desktop version of PowerPoint, or insert a new slide layout, and copy and paste the different objects onto the new slide layout….kind of sucks, but that’s the price of portability.
2. Font styles
Copying and Pasting Style: If you are simply trying to match the font style of an object, it is often faster to copy and paste the font style you are trying to match, rather than identifying the font style, and then changing the font elsewhere
Microsoft Account: Sign in with the account you use for OneDrive, Xbox, LIVE, Outlook.com or other Microsoft services.
3. Font size
The font size dropdown in PowerPoint for iPad gives you three different ways to change the font size of your text:
#1 Pre-set Sizes: Select a preset size in the dropdown menu
#2 Clicker: You can use the plus and minus signs to select a font size
#3 Manually: You can double-tab the number between the plus sign and minus sign, and manually type in your desired font size
4. Bold / italics / underline
- Bold: Creates bold text for highlighting information, often used in titles.
- Italics: Creates italicized text for highlighting information, often used in subtitles and quotes.
- Underline : Creates an underline text for highlight information, often used in titles and subtitles.
Note: There is no way to make a double underline in PowerPoint for your iPad. Pro Tip: Don’t overdo it
If everything is important, nothing is important. Use text highlighting sparingly to better emphasize your points.
- Strikethrough: Creates a strikethrough effect to emphasize that something should be removed
- Subscript & Superscript : Creates the -25% offset subscript and +30% offset superscript formatting. These are typically used in formulas, mathematical expressions and specifications for chemicals and isotopes
Includes the basic theme colors for your PowerPoint presentation, and their resulting gradients (which you cannot manually set).
Automatic: The automatic color is determined by the “Windows Text” color set in Control Panel Display Appearance. Changing this color will affect text color in all Windows applications.
Editing Your Presentation’s Theme: Currently you are not allowed to change or edit your PowerPoint presentation’s theme on your iPad. All theme editing or updating must be done on your desktop version of PowerPoint.
Setting Your Presentation’s Defaults on Your Desktop: You can set the default formatting for your objects on your desktop version of PowerPoint and those defaults will carry over into PowerPoint for your iPad.
6b. More colors
#1 More Colors: Selecting more colors gives you a dialog box with standard colors to choose from.
#2 Recent Colors: If you use the Custom Color option to create your own colors within your presentation, this second row of recent colors populates.
#3 Custom Color: Allows you to select your own color from a color grid (which is not very useful as you cannot get a precise color).
Advanced Color Formatting: Currently there are no options to input RGB or HSL codes to create specific custom colors or apply transparencies in PowerPoint for your iPad. The eyedropper tool is also not available.
To copy a custom color style (font color, shape fill or shape outline) into your recent colors to reuse somewhere else, see our blog post on using custom colors in PowerPoint on your iPad. 7. Text styles
Includes standard WordArt styles you can apply to highlight your message.
Style Note: WordArt is often distracting and hard to read and should be used sparingly if at all. See the example of Aqua, Accent 1, Reflection below the font styles gallery I created.
Note: You do not have the Text Fill, Text Outline and Text Effect options that you have on your desktop version of PowerPoint. You are currently limited to these 20 styles.
Left / Center / Right / Justify: Dictates the horizontal text alignment for text within a given PowerPoint object.
Top / Middle / Bottom: Dictates vertical text alignment for text within a given PowerPoint object.
Horizontal / Rotate Clockwise / Rotate Counterclockwise / Stacked: Dictates the rotation of your text within a given PowerPoint object. See next page for examples of each.
Columns: Controls how many columns of text are within an object. This is often used for objects with lots of text to visually break up the text.
Note: Notice that the alignment drop down stays open so that you can make multiple selections at the same time while working in your presentation…very handy!
Allows you to select bullet and numbers options for your lists in PowerPoint, but there are number of limitations that you should be aware of:
Limitation #1 : The Ruler – As you cannot access the ruler in PowerPoint for your iPad, you are stuck with the default bullet and numbering tab spacing
Limitation #2: Custom Bullets – You cannot create custom bullets like you can on your desktop version. That said, custom bullets and numbering created on the desktop version of PowerPoint does carry over into PowerPoint for your iPad, but you are not allowed to use it outside of the shape that it is currently set in.
Limitation #3: Numbers Start at 1 – All numbers on the iPad start at 1. You cannot adjust the starting number.
10. List level increase / list level decrease
Decrease List Level: SHIFT + TAB equivalent on the desktop version of PowerPoint. Moves a bullet or numbering backwards one indent level
Increase List Level: TAB equivalent on the desktop version of PowerPoint. Moves a bullet or numbering forward one indent level.
11. Text box
Inserts a text box into the middle of your PowerPoint slide.
Note: All inserted objects always start in the middle of your slide. There is currently no setting to manually place/draw your objects in after you have selected them.
12. Shapes gallery
Opens the shapes gallery and allows you to pick a shape to insert into the middle of your PowerPoint slide.
Shapes Always Default to the Center of Your Slide: Whenever you insert an object, it always defaults to the center of your slide.
You will need to manually drag it around and position it. To make sure your shapes are the same size, either copy and paste an existing shape on your slide, or line it up next to your shape, and resize it using your SmartGuides.
The Insert tab
Inserting a table immediately gives you a default 3 by 3 table in the center of your PowerPoint slide and opens the Table Tab on the Ribbon. See Table Tab for Table Options.
Selecting pictures opens the Photo Gallery. Currently, you are only allowed to insert pictures that are stored locally on your iPad (in your Camera Roll, Photo Streams, etc.).
If you have company pictures on your computer that you want to access on your iPad, you can share those pictures wireless through the iCloud service so that you can access them in PowerPoint on your iPad.
Check out Apple’s step-by-step walk-through of the iCloud service .
Opens the shapes gallery and adds the Shape Tab on the Ribbon.
Default Your Shapes on Your Desktop: To avoid clumsy formatting in PowerPoint for your iPad, I highly recommend setting default formatting on the desktop version of PowerPoint for your specific decks as it carries over onto your iPad.
To set the default formatting on your desktop version of PowerPoint, simply right-click the shape you want to default the formatting for, and in the right-click menu, select set as default shape (line or text box, depending on what you are defaulting).
5. Text boxes
Inserts a text box into the middle of your PowerPoint slide and opens the Shapes tab on the Ribbon.
Pro Tip: Insert rectangles instead of text boxes to avoid the default “resize shape to fit text” setting. All text boxes start with this default setting and there is no way to un-select or change this formatting option in PowerPoint for your iPad.
The Transitions tab
1. Transition effect
Represents the 39 different types of transitions you can apply to your PowerPoint slides on your iPad.
32 of the 39 transition effects have effect options associated with them which changes the direction of the transition. These variations are often from left to right, or from top to bottom. For the style effects to be active, a transition with effects has to first be applied to a slide.
To change the effect options, simply select the alternative transition effect you would like for your slide.
Style Note: As transitions are often distracting when giving a presentation, I highly recommend using them sparingly (if at all) within your presentations.
Previewing a Transition: To preview your transition, hit the “from current” icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen to start the presentation form the current slide. Once in presentation mode, swipe right once to move to the previous slide, and then swipe left to preview the transition you just set for your slide.
Transitions without effects:
- The Flash, Curtains
3. Apply to all styles
The Review tab
1. Show comments
Allows you to turn comments on or off in your PowerPoint presentation. Comments appear either in the upper left hand corner of the slide, or on the specific objects they have been added to.
Note: Comments can be only be viewed on the iPad, there is currently no support for editing, adding or removing comments from a presentation.
Cycles backwards to the previous com ment within your presentation, starting from your current slide
The Picture tab
1. Picture styles
Represents the 28 different preset picture styles you can apply to your pictures in PowerPoint.
2. Picture shadows
Represents the 23 different preset picture shadows you can apply to your pictures in PowerPoint.
All objects on a PowerPoint slide exist in a stacking or layering order based on when they were inserted onto the slide.
- Bring Forward: Brings an object forward, one layer.
- Bring to Front: Brings an object to the front layer of all the other objects on the slide
- Send Backward: Sends an object backwards one layer.
- Send to Back: Sends an object all the way to the back layer behind all the other objects on the slide.
Pro Tip 2: The Bring to Front and Send to Back commands are the fastest and easiest commands to use, as you know exactly where your objects will go. Best practice is to use these first, and then readjust any other objects that you want behind or in front of your other objects.
Note: More than one object has to be present on the slide for this command to be active.
The Shapes tab
1. Text Styles
The Text Styles gallery includes the 20 standard WordArt text styles that you can use to bring emphasis to or highlight the text within your presentation.
Are text styles worth using? Typically not, but it really depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
For example, for corporate presentations, WordArt is distracting and hard to read and should be used sparingly, if at all. That said, if you are using PowerPoint as a medium for creating a poster or a graphic for a website, the WordArt text styles could be useful.
Missing Text Styles Options: In PowerPoint for your iPad, the Text Fill, Text Outline and Text Effect formatting options are not available, you can currently only play with these options on your desktop version of PowerPoint.
2. Shape Styles
The Shapes Styles represent the 42 different default shape formatting styles you can apply to your shapes in PowerPoint. Now although these are tempting to use, keep in mind that anyone who has PowerPoint has access to these shape styles, so simply using these default formatting styles will result in a very default looking PowerPoint presentation.
Can I change the default shapes styles in the gallery? Yes, the shape styles are dictated by your PowerPoint theme settings, so manipulating or building a corporate theme will change these default formatting styles.
3. Shape fill
Allows you to change the shape outline color in PowerPoint.
- Bring Forward: Brings an object forward, one layer
- Bring to Front: Brings an object to the front layer of all the other objects on the slide
- Send Backward: Sends an object backwards one layer
- Send to Back: Sends an object all the way to the back layer behind all the other objects on the slide
The Table tab
- Single tap a table: Get the standard object edit menu.
- Double tap a cell within a table: Get the table specific edit menu.
- Cut: Cuts the text out of the selected cell.
- Copy: Copies the text in the selected cell.
- Paste: Pastes in your last copied text or object. Note that you cannot copy and paste formatting between tables.
- Clear: Clears the contents of the cell.
- Delete: Opens an additional menu allowing you to either delete the column or row you are currently in.
- Insert: Allows you to insert a column to the left of the current cell, or a row above your current cell.
- AutoFit: Collapses the column width to fit the text within it.
- Header Row: Formats the first row in your table as a header row
- Total Row: Formats the last row in your table as a total
- Banded Row: Adds a rotating fill color to the horizontal rows of your table
- First Column: Highlights the first column in a table
- Last Column: Highlights the last column in a table
- Banded Columns: Adds a rotating fill color to the vertical columns of your table
Note: As you make table selections, the style gallery will populate with a live preview of those options for the different table styles.
2. Table styles
From a formatting perspective, I highly recommend starting with a pre-formatted table style that gets you closest to your end result, and then manually tweaking the table from there.
Lists the different default table styles you can apply to your tables in PowerPoint.
Note: The Styles Options (discussed above) that you have selected, will be shown within the Table Styles Gallery making it easier to pick the default style that get you closest to your end goal.
Style Note: Use the formatting / highlighting sparing to increase the effectiveness of your table.
Tapping the fill colors opens the theme colors drop down, which you can use to manually override any of the Table Styles you have already applied to your table.
Pro Tip: To reverse the banding of your rows or columns, first, manually format the first row or column with a fill color, and then toggle on or off the header row option or the first column option.
Note: You are not able to change the outline weights or colors of a table or cells within a table in PowerPoint on your iPad. All table border formatting will have to wait until you are on your desktop of PowerPoint.
Gives you options to insert rows above or below the current cell you have selected within your table, or columns to the left or right of the current cell you have selected.
How can I insert multiple rows or columns at the same time? To insert multiple rows or columns within your table, first select multiple rows or columns within your table. With multiple rows or columns selected, when you click insert, the same number of rows or columns will be added to your table.
Deletes the row, column or table that you currently have selected.
How do I AutoFit multiple columns at the same time? First select the individual columns (or the entire table) before selecting AutoFit.
The Text Alignment command changes the horizontal text alignment (Left, Center, Right) or the vertical text alignment (Top, Middle, Bottom) of a cell within the selected cell in your table (similar to using the Text Alignment tool on your shapes or other PowerPoint objects).
The Reorder command allows you to change the layering of the objects on your PowerPoint Slide. All objects on your slide exist in a stacking or layering order (one on top of the other) based on when they were inserted on to the slide.
- Send Backward: Sends an object backward one layer
Pro Tip: When using the reorder command on a busy PowerPoint slide with lots of objects, the Bring to Front and Send to Back commands are the fastest and easiest to use, as you know exactly where your objects will end up.
Why is the reorder command grayed out? More than one PowerPoint object has to be present on your slide for the Reorder command to be active.
The Notes pane
1. Opening the Notes pane To open the Notes Pane, tap in the lower right-hand corner of your screen where it says ‘Notes’.
How do I best use the Notes pane on your iPad? I find the notes pane useful for quickly reviewing notes prior to your presentation, as the automatic full screen mode makes it easy to both review the notes for a particulate slide, and see the thumbnail of that particular slide, outlined in orange on the left side of the screen. The notes pane will also conveniently stay open on your iPad until you manually close it.
2. Closing the Notes pane
To close the Notes Pane in PowerPoint on your iPad, simply click the notes icon in in the upper right-hand corner of the slide, and you will return to the Normal View of your presentation.
Share & Slide Show View
These are the options for sharing your documents:
The Slide Show icon starts your presentation in slide show mode starting form the current slide. Besides running your presentation, this is great for spot checking your content and for reviewing any transitions you have applied as there is no “live preview” for them on your iPad.
The Slide Show icon is the equivalent of hitting the F5 keyboard shortcut on your desktop version of PowerPoint.

PowerPoint for iPad review: Close but not quite there
Microsoft’s PowerPoint for iPad finally makes it possible to open, edit, create, and present native PowerPoint files on your iPad, no file conversion required. This is a huge benefit for anyone who frequently uses PowerPoint on a Mac or PC but likes the iPad’s portability. But comparisons with PowerPoint for OS X 2011 (4.5 mice, $119) on the one hand, and Apple’s Keynote 2.0 for iOS (4.0 mice, free) on the other make it clear that, though PowerPoint for iPad is very nice as far as it goes, it doesn’t go far enough.
Like the other Office for iPad apps, PowerPoint requires you to have an Office 365 subscription—either Office 365 Home Premium ($9.99 per month), the upcoming Office 365 Personal ($6.99 per month), or one of several business options—if you want to create or edit presentations on your iPad. Each such subscription includes access to OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud-storage solution, which you’ll need to transfer files to and from your iPad. (You can also add a SharePoint location.) Alternatively, if another app contains a PowerPoint file, you can use the Open In command to send it to PowerPoint. There’s no support for other cloud storage services, such as Dropbox.
You can use any cloud storage service for your documents, as long as it’s OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, or a SharePoint folder.
PowerPoint can read .ppt files but prompts you to tap a link that converts them to the newer .pptx format before they can be edited. All the PowerPoint files I imported from my Mac opened without incident.
Whatever else you might say about PowerPoint for iPad, Microsoft got the touch interface right. This is a real iPad app, with evident care given to easy fingertip operation. The controls are all where you expect them to be, and every operation from applying boldface to rotating a graphic is intuitive and obvious. Anyone who has used PowerPoint on a Mac, or pretty much any iOS app, should be able to pick up PowerPoint for iPad in moments.
When creating a new slideshow, you can choose from among 20 themes, each in your choice of widescreen (16:9) or standard (4:3) aspect ratios. Oddly, there is zero overlap between the themes in the iPad version of PowerPoint and those in the Mac version—and no facility to create new ones. The iPad version also lacks templates (which supplement themes with sample content you can customize quickly).
Styles and layers
PowerPoint for iPad includes a reasonable array of text editing controls—you can adjust font, size, style, color, alignment, and indentation; apply bulleted or numbered lists in a variety of styles; and use any of 20 predefined text styles. You can also add and format tables, a number of shapes and lines, and graphics from elsewhere on your iPad. Although you can apply picture styles (that is, frames), shadows, and reflections to imported images—and resize or rotate them to taste—you can’t crop them. PowerPoint for iPad includes no built-in chart capability, but you can copy a chart from Excel for iPad and paste it into a slideshow.
You can choose from several predefined Picture Styles, which include frames and other visual elements.
You can adjust the front-to-back layering of each element on a slide, and you can apply any of 36 slide transitions, including 11 that don’t appear in PowerPoint for OS X. Control over transitions is limited, however—for example, you can choose a direction for a wipe or dissolve effect, but not its duration, sound effects, or delays.
Unfortunately, that’s pretty much the extent of what you can change on a slide. You can neither add animations nor edit animations already present in imported slideshows. (Although existing animations do appear when you play a slideshow.) There’s no SmartArt and no support for audio. Any videos in a slideshow appear as static thumbnails. You can reorder slides but there’s no Outline view. And although you can see comments added in the desktop version of PowerPoint, you can’t edit or delete them, nor add new comments. I kept expecting to see another few tabs with more of PowerPoint’s features, but they simply aren’t there.
PowerPoint for iPad lets you apply transitions to slides and adjust major attributes but not detailed settings such as duration or sound effects.
When it comes to playing a slideshow, PowerPoint is also a bit disappointing. On the plus side, as in Keynote for iOS, you can touch and hold for a simulated laser pointer, and you can write on the screen with a pen or highlighter. There’s also a black-screen button, which Keynote lacks. But there’s no presenter view—your slideshow always displays full screen. It’s especially weird that you can add and edit speaker notes, but you can’t see them during your slideshow. There’s also no on-screen timer or thumbnail view while presenting, even when using AirPlay or a video adapter connected to an external display; Keynote offers both.
Microsoft declined to comment specifically on if or when any of these missing features would be added, but did point out that the company has made quite a few updates to Office 365 in the last year, and noted that it is listening to customers’ feedback.
I was pleased to see that what’s in PowerPoint for iPad works well, but there’s just not enough of it yet. Keynote for iOS is, on the whole, considerably more powerful (and works even on an iPhone, which PowerPoint does not). If you’re accustomed to PowerPoint 2011 on OS X, you’ll almost certainly be frustrated by missing features, especially when playing a slideshow on an external display. But for all that, PowerPoint 1.0 is a good starting point, and shows considerable promise for the future.

Canvas Rearranges Design Elements when Uploading
If you are a college student and you create a PPT on Mac and you save and then upload itt as an assignment on Canvas, a lot tof tthe design elements get moved around and it makes a mess of the presentaion. pics and texts boxes are no longer where you placed hem, so your design looks bad. What I have to do no is export the presentation to a PDF an dupload that as the assignment, and then email the instructor to tell them that Canvas is wrecking my presentaion so I sent a pdf instead. My college moved from Moodle to Canvas last year and I have had this trouble ever since. When the PPT presentation is saved as a PDF, you lose all the extras you added like voice narration and sound effects, music, notes, etc.
Printing Slides is a Joke
To my knowledge, this is mainly an issue with PowerPoint for Mac as my colleagues who use PCs don't have this issue. When you go to print the slides, they look fine if there are multiple on a page or if you print the notes version, but if you try to print 1 slide per page the images blur when printing! And not just a little fuzzy, they turn out with lines going through them and just look like they never completed loading. This also happens when exporting to a PDF. The PDF looks fine on the screen, and then as soon as you go to print it, a random image will blur out like that. Is it the same image everytime? NOPE! It picks and chooses which image it wants to blur out each time it prints. There is no rhyme or reason to this issue. I exported to PDF, Exported each slide to jpeg, even took screen shots as a last resort and had to just deal with the fact that the color was completely different on the printed screen shot slides. This has been an issue for MONTHS and is all over every forum - the fact that this hasn't been addressed by the MS team is unacceptable! If I'm printing client copies of proposal presentations it shouldn't take me all day due to troubleshooting!
Forces users to use OneDrive
As of the May 2021 update, Office apps now requires internet access about once per day to validate the license. The problem is that when you give these apps internet access, then send the contents of all Office files that you open to OneDrive (Microsoft's cloud). Microsoft is convinced that the forcing all their customers to use OneDrive is going to turn around their slow but inevitable death at the hands of Google Docs - but of course it won't. Ironically, one of the strongest reasons to use stale, dusty, full of bugs Office apps before this update was that you could keep your data out of the cloud (by blocking just Office from having access to the internet). But the geniuses at Microsoft just killed that last benefit. So my message to Microsoft: give me a way to turn off saving my files in your cloud. This used to be possible but you forced everyone to participate. If you don't give me a reasonable way to have you not steal my data, I will not renew my 365 subscription.

How to give a presentation with an iPad and Apple TV
Share with Your Friends
Your email has been sent
Here's how you can use an iPad and an Apple TV to make a business presentation easily.
If you work in an office setting, sooner or later you’re going to have to give a presentation. We’ve all been there, watching someone stare into a blinding projector light while fumbling with cables and trying to get the signal to come through.
The good news for Apple users is that with a couple Apple products and a little know-how, they can do away with the cables and clutter and quickly get on with the presentation. Using the AirPlay service, you can stream content to a second or third generation Apple TV.
Here’s how you can give a presentation with just an iPad and an Apple TV.
To start, you’ll want to make sure that your Apple TV is plugged into the proper port on your TV, and both the iPad and Apple TV are connected to Wi-Fi. It’s important to note that both devices must be connected to the same network for the AirPlay option to be available. Be careful to make sure you don’t have one device inside your company’s firewall and one operating outside of it.
The next step is to make sure you have your presentation properly loaded on your iPad. The easiest way is to create your presentation in Keynote, Apple’s presentation software. However, you can also create or open a file in the Microsoft PowerPoint app.
Additionally, PowerPoint files can be opened by Keynote, so you can email them to yourself and save them on the device. If you plan on trying to convert a PowerPoint file in Keynote, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to account for any formatting issues you may run into when you convert the file.
Another option is to create a presentation in Google Drive. If all else fails, you should be able to save the presentation as a PDF and open it with iBooks.
After making sure that your file is locked and loaded on your iPad, or saved in your Google Drive, you need to enable AirPlay on your device. Once you have both devices on the same network, you should swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access what is known as the Control Center. At the bottom of the Control Center, you should see the AirPlay icon. Tap that icon and select the Apple TV from the drop-down menu.
Your Apple TV will recognize that a device is attempting to connect with it and it will prompt you to input a security code that it will display on the television screen. Once you input the code and finish connecting, the name of the Apple TV will appear at the bottom of the Control Center as long as you are utilizing AirPlay.
From now on, any app that works with AirPlay will be able to be displayed on your Apple TV connected television.
If you’re using Keynote, once you open your presentation, you should be able to tap the play button and have your presentation begin playing on the TV. Your device will display the “presenter view” and show you the list of slides in the presentation so you’ll know what’s next. If your slide contains animations, a green dot will alert you when the animation is complete so you’ll know when to proceed.
To enable this view in the PowerPoint App, you’ll first tap on the “Slide Show” tab at the top of the screen. Of the available options, choose presenter view and you should see the presenter view, while your actual presentation will be displayed on the TV.
For those using Google Drive or other services, you will need to enable the “Mirroring” feature through AirPlay to see the presentation on the television. Mirroring shows exactly what you see on your device screen on the television itself.
Swipe up again on the iPad screen and tap the AirPlay icon. Under the drop-down list select “Enable Mirroring.” Your device screen should show up on the connected television. Keep in mind, however, that you will not have access to a presenter view and you will see your presentation on your iPad as your audience sees it on the screen.
Swipe to manually advance your slides, or let the timed slide option advance them for you.
Hopefully this will help you streamline your presentation process and eliminate some cable clutter.

View PowerPoint on iPad: App Comparison
This July, 2015, we analyzed the best free apps that allow you to view PowerPoint on iPad. For this comparison, we examined four market leaders:
- iSpring Present app
- SlideShare app by LinkedIn
- SlideShark app by Brainshark
- PowerPoint iPad app by Microsoft
All these solutions let you view and save PowerPoint presentations on an Apple tablet, while providing a variety of other extra features for free.
Each app is backed by an online storage service where you can upload a presentation file using a PC or Mac computer. For example, PowerPoint iPad app works with OneDrive PPT files, and iSpring Present utilizes iSpring Cloud presentation sharing service. These services process uploaded presentations to an iPad-compatible format. But why is that necessary?
Choose the best PowerPoint presentation app for iPad
iPad can’t play PowerPoint files directly; they have to be transformed to a Web-compatible format, also called HTML5. It can be a set of pictures, a video, or a fully-functional Web version of the original presentation. Each app uses its own proprietary technology. We evaluated each app’s technology by the number of supported PowerPoint features such as motion effects, interactivity, media support and evaluated overall graphics quality of the images and text on iPad.
Our main goal is to help you pick the right solution that suits your needs best. Here is a bird’s eye view of the features that may be utilized by users:
Now let’s swoop down and look at every app in detail. Note that we’ve evaluated only free solutions. Features of the full versions were not included in the competition.
1. iSpring Present iPad app
iPad app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ispring-present/ Online storage service: https://pro.ispringcloud.com/ (or /ispring-cloud )
iSpring Present is an app that shows content which has been uploaded to iSpring Cloud . Also you can share content with other iPad users and track their activity. It’s a well-balanced choice for presenting business ideas authored in PowerPoint and OpenOffice on an iPad tablet. iSpring Cloud’s advanced conversion technology supports PowerPoint’s dynamic features, such as shape and text motion effects and slide transitions. It preserves embedded audio, video and YouTube.
The iPad player is minimalistic and has a few buttons for navigation, slide notes, marker tools and outline. The content catalog has several customizable views (Carousel, tiles, cover flow, etc.)
Though Cloud is mainly used for PowerPoint presentations, it supports many other file formats: .odp (OpenOffice Presentations), .xls, .pdf, .doc, images, audio, and video files. iSpring Cloud’s free storage lets you upload up to 100 content items with no size limitation.
PPT to HTML5 technology: HyperPoint 4.0. Fully-functioning interactive presentation with vector graphics.
iSpring Present pros
- Crystal clear Images and text – best for hi-res retina display. Quality is even better than in the PowerPoint iPad app.
- Supports all PowerPoint features: animations, slide transitions, triggered actions that provide interactivity, inserted audio/video, and YouTube embed.
- Instant loading time and different catalog views for a more captivating experience.
iSpring Present cons
- No online editing capability.
- Though the free version of iSpring Cloud has all the capabilities of the paid version, after 30 days your viewers will see a short splash logo screen before viewing a presentation.
- Other advanced features, such as audio and video narrations, customizable player and Web Object will only be supported if you use a full version of a desktop iSpring authoring tool .
Summary: Best PowerPoint viewer on iPad as it preserves the original look and feel of rich-media presentations.
iPad app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slideshark-presentation-app/ Online storage service: http://www.brainshark.com/
SlideShark iPad app doesn’t seem to have problems playing back dynamic presentations. The evidence for this is that SlideShark converts the entire PowerPoint presentation to a fragmented video that is controlled by the player. In other words, it’s like a YouTube video where you can also click on hyperlinks .
This conversion technology gives you identical PowerPoint playback on iPad and desktop, but with limited interactivity; i.e., trigger animations and other actions like play/stop inserted video will not be supported by the SlideShark iPad app.
The presentation viewer mode in the app has a super-convenient panel that shows an outline and can also change the playback behavior of the presentation: Auto Play, set Slide Delay in seconds, and Loop Presentation. The main breakthrough feature that makes SlideShark stand out is broadcasting your presentation live to remote attendees. It syncs presentation playback with multiple iPad devices, driven by a single presenter. Also, this iPad app allows you to save markups on the presentations, while other apps don’t provide this feature.
The aesthetics of the app are controversial. It looks like old Apple interfaces, but many people still like it. The real bummer is that the system gives you just 25 MB of free space to upload presentations (as of 2015). With this limitation, you don’t have much freedom using the free version.
PPT to HTML5 technology: Fragmented video presentation with hyperlinks but no full interactivity.
- Supports all PowerPoint animations and transitions.
- Very user-friendly presentation player in the app with a great options panel.
- Broadcasting feature.
- Although it supports all automatic animations, it doesn’t support trigger animations which doesn’t let you create interactivities within a slideshow.
- For some reason, it plays PowerPoint-inserted video, but no audio. Also, you can’t play embedded YouTube videos.
- Ridiculously low size limitations in the free version of the account (25 Mb).
Summary: Best for broadcasting live business presentations. The full version unveils all the features of this service, while the free version doesn’t give you a lot.
iPad app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slideshare-presentations-official/ Online storage service: http://www.slideshare.net/
As well known as YouTube is for videos, Slideshare is for presentations, with millions of unique users every day. All presentations appear as static slideshows , like a filmstrip, with no sound. It’s good for those who appreciate ultimate simplicity. However, many iPad users won’t be satisfied with the lack of PowerPoint animations, and bad image and text quality.
The standard image resolution employed by SlideShare is only 720 x 480 px. This means that images and text will appear fuzzy on an iPad with retina display (2048 × 1536 px). Thus, SlideShare uses only 11% of the hi-res display’s capacity .
SlideShare has a built-in online editor called Haiku Deck. It works great with SlideShare, but can’t be compared in the same class with Microsoft PowerPoint’s online editing features.
SlideShare iPad app itself is simple and very easy to use.
PPT to HTML5 technology: Set of pictures.
- Social component. A lot of users, channels, and plenty of useful content.
- Support for OpenOffice Presentation files (ODP) and YouTube.
- Great analytics.
- All slides are converted to raster images that have mediocre quality.
- Animations and slide transitions won’t be preserved.
- No sound and video in your presentations (unless you insert a YouTube video).
Summary: Good for viewing simple presentations consisting of static slides without narrations. Fast loading.
4. PowerPoint iPad app
iPad app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-powerpoint/ Online storage service: https://onedrive.live.com/
Microsoft is a bit above the rest of the competition because it offers the authoring environment for all these presentation-sharing services; i.e., PowerPoint for desktops. As for the PowerPoint iPad app , Microsoft has been doing pretty well so far. It connects to your OneDrive Windows Live account, which generously provides you with 15 GB for all documents and photos.
The strongest part of the iPad app is the online editing capability . No other free tablet application has ever given you this power of creation. Every time you open a presentation on the iPad, it downloads and prepares itself for online editing. This process takes a significant amount of time and is not convenient if you want to deliver several presentations to an audience.
The playback interface of the application is empty of any extra buttons and sidebars. Microsoft, like iSpring, seems to have one of the foremost PPT to HTML5 conversion engines under the hood to play PowerPoint presentations on iPad as they appear on desktops. All dynamic multimedia content and interaction elements appear in an iPad presentation as they do on a desktop.
The PowerPoint iPad app doesn’t support YouTube embed, and also you can’t upload OpenOffice Presentations (ODP).
PPT to HTML5 technology: Fully-functioning interactive presentation with raster graphics.
PowerPoint for iPad pros
- Superior online editing capabilities.
- Supports all functions of PowerPoint.
- Microsoft OneDrive provides you with plenty of free space.
PowerPoint for iPad cons
- A presentation’s loading time is very long every time you try to view it, even if it was closed a second ago.
- In comparison to iSpring, texts appear as a raster graphics instead of vector. It means the text will be not as crisp as in native iPad apps.
- No YouTube/ODP.
Summary: Best for online editing on a tablet. Long loading time.

What other solutions are out there? There’s the great Apple Keynote iPad app, which also gives you online presentation editing capabilities. However, it is not free ($9.99), and therefore this app was not included in the above comparison. Google Slides is a great free application for creating simple Google presentations; however, according to our benchmark tests, their iPad app doesn’t work well with PowerPoint presentations loaded to Google Drive.
SlideShare clearly shows that millions of people don’t need either animations or audio narrations for their slides. It’s the world’s largest collection of presentations with great social features.
The business shark from our selection is definitely SlideShark . Its iPad broadcasting technology is groundbreaking. However, we don’t see this solution working as freeware.
We recommend that you use these two apps for everyday use: the PowerPoint iPad App for powerful online editing, and iSpring Present for the best PowerPoint viewing experience on iPad.

Evite Baixar o Microsoft Office de Sites de Terceiros
Baixar o Microsoft Office de sites de terceiros pode ser arriscado e causar vários problemas. Alguns dos riscos potenciais de baixar o Office desses sites incluem:
1. Malware e outros softwares nocivos : sites de terceiros podem oferecer versões falsas ou adulteradas do Microsoft Office que contenham malware ou outros softwares maliciosos. Isso pode causar danos graves ao seu computador e comprometer seus dados pessoais.
2. Taxas ocultas : alguns sites de terceiros podem solicitar pagamento ou informações pessoais em troca do download do Microsoft Office, mesmo que seja anunciado como "gratuito". Isso pode levar a cobranças inesperadas no seu cartão de crédito e roubo de identidade.
3. Perda de tempo : baixar de sites de terceiros pode ser demorado, especialmente se o download for interrompido ou o software não funcionar como esperado.
4. Perda de documentos : versões de terceiros do Office podem não ser compatíveis com seus documentos ou dados existentes, levando à perda ou corrupção de dados.
5. Software desatualizado : a Microsoft regularmente lança atualizações e novos recursos para o Office. Usar uma versão de terceiros do Office pode significar perder essas atualizações e recursos, deixando você com uma versão desatualizada e menos funcional do software.
Portanto, é altamente recomendável baixar o Microsoft Office apenas de sites oficiais da Microsoft ou de fontes confiáveis para evitar riscos potenciais e garantir o melhor desempenho do software.

Como corrigir falhas de download do Microsoft Office
Verifique os requisitos do sistema:.
Antes de baixar o Microsoft Office, certifique-se de que o dispositivo atenda aos requisitos mínimos do sistema. Cada versão do Microsoft Office tem seus próprios requisitos do sistema. Por exemplo, o Microsoft Office 2021 requer Windows 10 ou posterior e macOS 11 ou posterior. Se o seu dispositivo não atender aos requisitos mínimos, você não conseguirá baixar e instalar o Microsoft Office.
Verifique se você excedeu o limite de 5 dispositivos:
Microsoft Office permite que você instale e ative o software em até 5 dispositivos com uma única licença. Se você já instalou e ativou o Office em 5 dispositivos, não poderá baixá-lo e ativá-lo em um novo dispositivo até desativá-lo em um dos dispositivos ativados anteriormente.
Para atualizar o Office 2021/2019 para o Microsoft 365, você precisa desinstalá-lo antes de baixar a suíte do Office:
Se você estiver tentando atualizar do Office 2021/2019 para o Microsoft 365, é necessário desinstalar a versão mais antiga antes de baixar e instalar a versão mais recente. Não fazer isso pode causar problemas com o processo de instalação.
Verifique sua conexão com a Internet se o download estiver travado por um longo período de tempo:
Uma conexão lenta ou intermitente com a Internet pode fazer com que o download falhe ou fique preso. Certifique-se de ter uma conexão com a Internet estável e rápida ao baixar o Microsoft Office. Se o download estiver preso por um longo tempo, tente pausar e retomar o download ou reiniciar seu dispositivo e tentar novamente.
Perguntas frequentes sobre o Microsoft Office
1. o que acontece se eu não renovar minha assinatura do microsoft office.
Se você não renovar sua assinatura do Microsoft Office, perderá o acesso ao software e a todas as suas funcionalidades. Seus arquivos se tornarão somente leitura, e você não poderá criar ou editar novos documentos, planilhas ou apresentações. No entanto, ainda é possível abrir e visualizar seus arquivos em outro software, como o WPS Office, que é uma alternativa gratuita ao Microsoft Office.
2. Qual versão do Microsoft Office é melhor para mim?
A resposta a esta pergunta depende de suas necessidades e preferências pessoais. Para usuários que preferem uma compra única, o Office 2021 ou o Office 2019 são uma boa opção, enquanto o Microsoft 365 é uma boa escolha para usuários que preferem um plano de assinatura com atualizações e novos recursos regulares. É recomendável experimentar a suíte Office gratuita do WPS antes de tomar uma decisão.
3. Devo comprar uma assinatura ou uma compra única?
Depende de suas necessidades e de com que frequência você precisa atualizar o software. Se você precisa usar o Microsoft Office por um curto período, como um semestre ou um projeto, uma compra única pode ser uma escolha melhor. Se você precisa de acesso aos recursos e atualizações mais recentes regularmente, então um plano de assinatura, como o Microsoft 365, pode ser uma escolha melhor.
4. Sou estudante, posso baixar o Microsoft Office gratuitamente?
Se sua faculdade tiver uma licença da versão educacional, você poderá se registrar e baixar o Microsoft Office gratuitamente. Caso contrário, você pode comprar uma licença com seu e-mail .edu, o que pode lhe garantir um desconto de 10% ou mais. No entanto, uma taxa mensal de assinatura pode ser um fardo para um estudante sem renda. Nesse caso, o WPS Office é uma suíte de escritório gratuita e poderosa que pode atender às suas necessidades de estudo.
5. Posso experimentar o Microsoft Office antes de comprá-lo?
Yes, Microsoft offers a free trial of Microsoft 365, which allows you to use the software for a limited period before deciding whether to purchase a subscription. You can also try out the free Office suite of WPS before making a decision.
6. Como posso cancelar minha assinatura do Microsoft 365?
Para cancelar sua assinatura do Microsoft 365, vá para o site da conta da Microsoft e faça login. Vá para a página de Serviços e Assinaturas, encontre sua assinatura e clique em Gerenciar. Em seguida, clique em Cancelar e siga as instruções para concluir o processo de cancelamento.
Em conclusão, o Microsoft Office é sem dúvida uma suíte de escritório poderosa e amplamente utilizada que oferece inúmeras funcionalidades e recursos. No entanto, ele também vem com um custo de assinatura e outras limitações que podem não ser adequadas para todos.
Como alternativa, o WPS Office oferece uma suíte de escritório gratuita e totalmente compatível que pode atender às necessidades da maioria dos usuários, sem o ônus de uma taxa de assinatura. Além disso, o WPS Office oferece colaboração em tempo real, suporte multiplataforma e uma vasta coleção de modelos que o tornam uma escolha ideal para aqueles que exigem uma suíte de escritório versátil e confiável.
Em geral, embora o Microsoft Office permaneça como um dos principais players do mercado, o WPS Office oferece uma alternativa valiosa que pode satisfazer as necessidades da maioria dos usuários sem custo.
