A dazzling presentation is at the tip of your finger. Tap a theme to start. Tap to edit slides. And tap to create lots of oohs and aahs.
Start off strong with great-looking themes.
Choose from 12 Apple-designed themes and you’re already off to a great start. Every theme features perfectly coordinated fonts, colors, textures, and backgrounds, as well as a range of useful layouts you can choose from each time you add a new slide. You can also import presentations from Keynote on your Mac — complete with master slide templates and preset styles — in all slide sizes. Then all you have to do is tap the placeholder text and images to make them your own. Insert photos, charts, and tables. And in a few minutes, you’ll have it all down.
Tap to organize.
Tap to edit.
Organize your presentation with the slide navigator — it shows a handy thumbnail view of your slides. Flick to browse them all. Tap to add new ones. Drag to reorder them — even a few at a time. And group related slides together. It’s just as easy to edit an object or photo on a slide. Drag a corner to resize it, twist to rotate it, and drag to move it around. Use the alignment guides to place everything exactly where you want it to be.
They’ll hang on every word. And every photo, table, and chart.
What’s a presentation without visuals? Add photos and movies from the Photos app and make them show-worthy. Mask images, apply reflections, and add picture frames. Create arrows, stars, or other shapes and give them shadows so they pop. You can even make data look great in Keynote. Insert tables and charts and edit them right in your slides. And paste whatever you like from Pages, Numbers, Safari, or Mail.
3D charts. Elevate your data.
Make your data as impressive as the rest of your presentation. Insert beautiful 3D charts with textures like marble, slate, and wood. Then get hands-on. Grab a chart with your fingertips, move it anywhere on the slide, and tilt it to the perfect angle. And choose grow, rotate, or other animations to add a little fun. Try a pie chart with slices that fly in from offscreen. A bar chart that turns toward you as it builds. Or a line graph that draws itself.
Keynote automatically saves as you go.
You never have to worry about losing a change to your presentation because Keynote saves your work — while you work. You can pick up right where you left off the next time you open your presentation. Even if you’re on another device. And the undo feature lets you go back through your changes, no matter when you made them.
Graphics soar across the screen. Words build dramatically over a photo. Slides flip one after another. With a tap, you can add stunning new transitions and effects. And make your presentation shine — or shimmer, pop, or twist.
Add some effects to keep things moving.
Some slides could use a little drama. Cinema-quality drama. Words, charts, photos, or graphics can animate on and off the screen — even across consecutive slides with Magic Move. As you add animations, preview them on your device and watch every slide action play out.
Present on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, display, projector — even an HDTV. No matter the size of your audience (or your screen), your presentation will definitely go over big.
One swipe and it’s on with
Presenting is natural on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch because you use your fingers. Swipe to move forward or back through your presentation. Or tap to go to the next slide. Swipe from the left, and out pops the slide navigator so you can jump to any slide. Everything looks incredible on the Retina display, whether you’re presenting to a small crowd on your iPad or to an audience of one on your iPhone or iPod touch.
A command performance.
The floor is yours with Keynote Remote (sold separately). It turns your iPhone or iPod touch into yet another great presentation tool, letting you control a presentation that’s on your iPad, your Mac, or even another iPhone or iPod touch. As you roam around the room connecting with your audience, swipe to advance through slides and read your presenter notes. View Keynote Remote in the App Store
As your audience grows,
your display can, too.
Video mirroring lets you turn your display or HDTV into a bigger version of your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Your audience sees your slides on the big screen, and you control the show with your device. Preview the next slide and scroll through your presenter notes. To really make your point, touch and hold to bring up a laser pointer. Connect your device with a video output cable (sold separately) or use AirPlay to stream wirelessly from your iOS device to your HDTV via Apple TV.2 Learn more about AirPlay Mirroring
