When’s the last time you saw a presentation that really captured your imagination and attention? No matter how engaging the content is, it can be hard for presenters to make their work stand out simply because the format of a slide deck is about as fresh as Windows 95. If you’re looking for an alternative to slide-based presentations, you might want to take a look at a new app for iPad called Scrollshow.
Scrollshow allows users to craft "panoramic presentations" where content scrolls horizontally in one long stream reather than being chopped up into separate slides.
Several themes are available within Scrollshow to get you started.
Here the full description from the press release:
Scrollshow is an iPad application enabling the creation of borderless panoramic presentations as an alternative to the traditional “slide-by-slide”. Very user-friendly, Scrollshow moves the elements of the deck at different speeds along an horizontal axis following the finger’s scroll. This shifting is creating a stunning illusion of depth called “2.5D”.
With this innovation, Scrollshow is bringing one of the most spectacular effects of video games and animated movies to presentations – the parallax scrolling. The animated panorama enhances the meaning of the message and brings life to infographics or storytelling speech.
The innovating potential for visual communication is pushing creativity to the next level. Transitions are history, as texts and graphics become dynamic. The panoramic view allows unique, lively and riveting presentations.
Plimse, editor of Scrollshow, offers about 20 animated themes, each of them being the beginning of a story and the ideal background for unprecedented presentations. Technologically innovative, the application is ideal to bring out the advantages of products during tradeshows, or for business and family slideshows.
Suited for everyone and easy to use, Scrollshow deeply impacts the visual and emotional aspect of the message. Straightforward and fun to create, Scrollshow presentations amaze, seduce and help to convince while emphasizing the qualities of the presented object.
Scrollshow is available in the App Store, and for one week you can get it at the launch price of $.99 (regular price $3.99).
