2. Keynote $13.99 NZD

Keynote is the most powerful presentation app ever designed for a mobile device. If you want to read all about the specs, check out the link here.

What I love about it is that I created a whole presentation while in the passenger seat on the way home from the supermarket in the car in about 3 seconds. AMAZING!

Keynote is the presentation component of their iWork productivity suite of software, and a companion app to Pages for word processing and Numbers for spreadsheets. Because Keynote and PowerPoint are both intended for the same purpose, there’s a lot of overlap in features, and if you’ve used PowerPoint, or Keynote on the Mac, you shouldn’t have any trouble getting used to Keynote for iPhone and iPad.

I think this app is fantastic for those on the go – like all of the apps this week I guess. I had a business trip to Sydney a few weeks ago and I had some PowerPoint’s to work on. I spend the whole time squished in between a very large Samoan man who took his seat and half a mine and a lady who was asleep – on my right shoulder. I kid you not. Having my MacBook open in that tiny economy space was hell – but I had work to do.

If I had have had this app then, I could have taken my iPad over and just done it on that. How amazing would life have been then?

Instead of showing you useless screenshots again, I got a film that can SHOW you the amaziness of the Keynote app. But this time, I went above and beyond – and I MADE the film myself. I know right. Props to Dani. In all seriousness the function and usability of this really impressed me. It was as easy as one two three, and this is an app I will be using often – if only to send my partner amazing shopping lists at work that he has to view a slideshows on YouTube.
