Brainshark, Inc. introduced SlideShark, an app tailored to display PowerPoint presentations on the iPad. SlideShark is available for free download from Apple's App Store.
The app is designed to preserve animations, fonts, graphics, and colors. Presentations can be downloaded and played locally, without the requirement of an internet connection. Users can also project their slides from an iPad 2 by connecting to a TV or VGA projector.
After uploading PowerPoint files to a private account on www.slideshark.com, files are converted to an iPad-optimized viewing format, which can be downloaded through the SlideShark app. Brainshark provides cloud-based software for creating, sharing, and tracking online and mobile video presentations.
