So, here we are again… today is the day (if you got up really early and queued) that you can get your hands on the new iPhone 7 (Android user’s stay with me)…
So what's new?
In a nutshell the headphone socket has gone, but it now has Stereo Speakers that are better, louder… and much quicker at draining your battery. Which should be fine, as it has a longer battery life of 10 days… unless you actually use it. For anything.
It’s now water (but not toddler) resistant.
It has two new colours of jet black and erm, black. What happened to Space Grey?
Thankfully 16GB of storage is gone – so never again will you need to delete a photo in order to take another one, and if you are really snap happy there is a 256GB version.
And of course it has a faster processer….
(I love this video, it’s the kind of seriously cool thing we do regularly for our customers.)
Ok, so you potentially have your mitts on a sparkly, new iPhone 7…how can you use this to your advantage when it comes to presentations?
Well it turns out there are some seriously good (iOS and Android friendly) apps out there that can help…
PowerPoint – The App for Delivering Intimate Presentations…
When it comes to presentations on Apple phones and tablets, the arrival of the PowerPoint app was the single biggest game changer for device presentations we’ve ever seen.
The PowerPoint app meant we could finally ditch complicated workarounds and heralded the true birth of informal presentations. Finally, presenters could leave their clunky laptops at the office, and enjoy truly interactive and informal conversational presentations.
Splashtop – The App for complete presenter control over big screen presentations
I like this app a lot; firstly it turns your device into a second (albeit smaller) PC monitor, which is handy in itself.
But when it comes to presenting you can use Presenter View…
This means you don’t need a clicker, you don’t need extra paper notes, you don’t need to keep
looking at the clock and you don’t need a PowerPoint operator to click on hyperlinks for you.
All of this means this is the only way a presenter can retain full control of their presentation and keep the freedom to move around the stage. Cool eh?
Whiteboard presentations are great way to deliver information in a more interactive way than traditional screen-based presentations.
But of course you face the age old problem of carting away large sheets of paper, having the audience draw along with you or someone lining up to take photos.
Microsoft’s Office Lens app though is a great way to capture whiteboards…
You take a photo using the app, no need to spend time lining up as the app scans what you're taking and straightens it out.
You keep snapping away until the end of the presentation, then in one-touch you can save all of your images to OneNote, OneDrive, Word, PowerPoint, PDF or even Outlook – so you can share them with your audience right away.
You could also turn your pages into a video with a commentary using Apples iMovie all on your iPhone 7!
So there you have it, 3 must-have presentation apps for your new iPhone 7 (or Android). We’d love to hear about your experiences if you use any of these apps, just drop us a line…
