Yet another PowerPoint on IOS-SlideRocket

Apologies for yet another "here's how to embed PowerPoint's for IOS" post but I am on a roll with this at the moment. Anyway, whilst I was researching ways to share presentations, I came across SlideRocket, an online presentation making and sharing site with a difference. Whilst sites like Google Docs and Zoho mimic to a greater or lesser degree the basic functions of PowerPoint, SlideRocket takes this a stage further, allowing you to create "rich content" with embedded sound, video, graphic builds and the like and allows you to share via embed code. It doesn't allow authoring on IOS but it does also allow content to be viewed on IOS. Below is probably the worst presentation I have ever made (it may be the worst presentation anyone has ever made!), I threw it together in a couple of minutes to test SlideRocket so please be gentle.



This definitely has potential, OK, so the links are a bit flaky and the video doesn't play (haven't had time to look into that) but it is a nice system and allows you to do a couple of things you can't do in Zoho.

The video does play on my MacBook Pro, so maybe just the ipad that has the problem?

Thanks for the comment, I think it is just IOS that has problems, my iMac plays it fine and so do the Windows machines at work. As I said inn my post, Slide Rocket is good but still has a few quirks and kinks that need sorting out. Still, it is free and I'm sure they will sort out these issues.

Hi Jimi, not sure why the video doesn't play on the iPad. It works fine on my Mac and I can play the video on YouTube OK on the iPad. I think its maybe a glitch with SlideRocket. Still, Slide Rocket is really good, looking forward to playing more with it over the hols.
