How to view PowerPoint Presentation on iPad

Playing a PowerPoint presentation on a portable is popular nowadays. You may be an expert in showing a business presentation on a Blackberry and extending an entertaining PPT to an iPhone. But how about iPad? Do you know how to turn a PowerPoint presentation onto an iPad? This post will guide you through.


As iPad isn’t able to play PowerPoint directly, a compromise is necessary. Here I would love to introduce you 2 alternative choices:

Method 1: Turn PowerPoint to Video for Play-back on iPad

That is the way I prefer. Though not ready for MS PowerPoint, iPad gives good support for video playback. Below follows the video specifications of iPad:

iPad compatible video file formats:

  • H.264 video - up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • MPEG-4 video - up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • Motion JPEG - up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

Video is no doubt the best choice for playing a PowerPoint presentation full of visual aids.

Benefits of converting PowerPoint to video for iPad:

  • 1. Keep the dynamic effects in from your original PowerPoint presentation. If you include a set of motions, e.g. animations, transitions, sounds, movie clips in your presentation, converting it to iPad video will relieve you from fear of effect loss.
  • 2. Control playback of your presentation on iPad. You can pause at any time a question occurs, simply by clicking the Pause key. Always get interacted with your audience.
  • 3. Ready for mobile presentation. With an iPad plus a video projector and a white wall, you can demonstrate a PowerPoint presentation on the go. You don’t have to take a bulky computer on travel. Click here to see how to make a mobile presentation.

Then how? To convert your PowerPoint presentation to an iPad-compatible video, a third-party software app called Moyea PPT to Video Converter is there to help. The robust conversion program will enable you to expand a complex PowerPoint presentation to any format of iPad video, despite of fixed transitions, animations, linked sounds or movie clips. The conversion goes as easy as 3 steps, shown as below:

  • Step 1: Add your presentation to the program after installation. You can preview the slides and re-set the properties like slide name, transition, etc.
  • Step 2: Choose the output video format to an iPad supported. E.g. H.264 and MPEG-4. To customize the video parameters, click the Profile button.
  • Sep 3: When you are ready, click Start to start the converting. You will see a task list that shows the exact process of this conversion.

Once converted, the video presentation can be transferred to your iPad. Open your iTunes, choose File -> Preferences, then Video in the iPad tab. Choose the video from the specified location, and click OK for sync.

When the video presentation is on your iPad, you can play it at large.

Note: The Saving As Video method is highly recommended for complicated PowerPoint presentations with visual aids.

Let’s take an easy peek at the second method. Later, you can compare it with the first.

Method 2: Save PowerPoint as Static Pictures for Showing on iPad

iPad has a slideshow photo viewer that allows you to enjoy still pictures in slideshow mode. That is, you can save your PowerPoint presentation to pictures for displaying on iPad.

Best image file format for iPad: JPEG - takes the least memory yet with high quality.

To save your PowerPoint presentation to a static set of pictures, do the following:

  • 1. Go to the PowerPoint presentation. Click the Office button (in 2007 version) or File -> Save As -> Other Formats.
  • 2. A Save As interface pops up. In the Save as type dropdown, select *.jpg. Click Save.
  • 3. A message prompts asking you how you want to export the slide. Choose Every Slide to export all the slides in your presentation. The slides will be output to a folder with separate slide files, named as Slide x.JPG.

Now you can import the set of slide pictures to your iPad. Go to your iTunes, select File -> Preferences, in the iPad tab, and choose Photos to add in the slides from the specified folder. Click OK for sync.

When the slides are synced to your iPad, you can view it in a picture slideshow mode.

Limitations: Everything dynamic in PowerPoint will get lost, i.e. animations, timings, music, movie clips.

It is obvious that Method 2 favors silent, motionless PowerPoint presentations for iPad, while Method 1 does a wonderful job for dynamic slideshows on iPad. Dear readers, do you need to play your presentation on iPad? Which method do you prefer? Tell me your choice!

Miss Universe 2010 Winner Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete

A 22-year-old Mexico woman has won the Miss Universe 2010 pageant after donning a flowing red gown and telling an audience it’s important to teach children family values.

Jimena Navarrete of Guadalajara was first to answer an interview question Monday night and the last of 83 contestants standing in the headline-grabbing pageant on the Las Vegas Strip.

Her one-strap gown flowed behind her like a sheet as she walked. Earlier, she smiled in a violet bikini as she confidently strutted across the stage.

Asked by Olympic gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek how she felt about unsupervised Internet use, Navarrete said the Internet is important but parents need to be careful and watch over their children.

“I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time,” she said through an interpreter. “We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family.”

First runner-up was Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps, while second runner-up was Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell.

Navarrete is Mexico’s second Miss Universe; Lupita Jones of Mexico won the title in 1991. Navarrete replaces Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez of Venezuela.

Navarrete’s win thwarted Miss Venezuela Marelisa Gibson from giving the South American country a third consecutive win. Neither Gibson nor Miss USA Rima Fakih made the top 15 finalists.

Navarrete won a package of prizes including an undisclosed salary, a luxury New York apartment with living expenses, a one-year scholarship to the New York Film Academy with housing after her reign, plus jewelry, clothes and shoes fit for a beauty champion.

Campbell won the Miss Congeniality Universe award. Miss Thailand Fonthip Watcharatrakul won Miss Photogenic Universe and a second award for having the best national costume.

We’ve collected some photos of the Miss Universe 2010 Winner Miss Mexico Jimena Navarrete, and made a slideshow and a PowerPoint video, enjoy!
