iPads are cool, we all agree with that. At Prezi we prefer to say that portable multi touch devices are cool, because the iPad is surely just the early bird in the market. Since many of you ask us every day if we were thinking about developing an iPad version of Prezi, we'd like to go a little beyond the wow factor and ask:

How would you use Prezi on the iPad? We're excited to hear your stories!

I would love to have Prezi on the IPad, with the ability to link it up and present from it. I deliver training sessions, and I do use Prezi for some of them, but the IPad is easy to carry around. Combining the two would be excellent!

I'm using iPad for any presentations...I would love a simply app to play my Prezi show and present it...I don't need a Prezi editor on iPad, simply a presenter!

I agree with you. But, in a future, I'd also like editing the prezis in my iPad.

I agree. The intermediate solution should just be an app to play the prezi. Right now I use a remote connection to my MacBook, play the prezi on the laptop and it comes up on the iPad screen. The quality is dependent on network speed and laptop resolution but, it's a way around the flash restrictions.

This could be realized with HTML5, CSS3 and some JS. Older browsers could still use the flash version.

I would use it for sure. Can't wait! Not so much for creating but more for presenting. Now i use keynote, but that's no fun if you don't have a mac to create them on

Great input, thanks! So from your feedback it seems that the portability is a very important aspect. Also it's interesting if you would use the iPad to edit or present from only. Looking forward to learning more!

I am a multimedia designer and instructor @Nashville State Community College. We introduce Prezi to our students. Because you can draw directly on the iPad screen. I would use the iPad to create my Prezis.

I'd love to be able to both! I'm hoping to rid myself of a laptop and be a desktop/iPad only user. So it would be great if software started treating the iPad like a full on device....I probably wouldn't CREATE an entire presentation on iPad but certainly would want to be able to edit things.

I would like to use it, I have bought the display adapter already for my ipad ;)
I would like to use it in offline-mode, have an easy possibility to transfer my prezi from my linux or mac box to the ipad and vice versa so I can work on my prezi on the ipad but also on my linux or mac box.

I appreciate prezi :).

Best,

Ralf

I could work on my Prezis on the go! Preparing presentations for my projects an my clients. Working on the train, at a park, etc.
I take my iPad almost everywhere with me. I could share my ideas with somebody at a café or present an idea quickly.

I need the whole package: editing and presenting on the go.

Could have two levels of pricing. How about a free app for only presenting existing prezis, and a paid app for the full editing package? then it would suit everyone

Or use the pricing as they are being used on the website already. If you are a paying customer you can use the app for free.

Yes, of course - but some people will only access Prezi as an app on the Ipad. So maybe if you are a paying customer already and want the paid app you can be sent a code to enter to unlock the app

It would be great to be able to give a personal demonstration of our capabilities while on our first visit with a client. Doing so on the ipad would provide a very intimate format and the ability to WOW a client the first time you meet them. Please...Please...Pretty Please create a Prezi app for the Ipad!

The iPad is a great one on one or one one two presentation device (have used it twice today already) and given that it can also be plugged into a projector it's also useful as a group presentation device (i imagine as I haven't used it for this yet) so it's kind of a no brainer for Prezi to be on it. Prezi's non traditional presentation display method lends itself to a touch based interface.

I agree - the ability to present for me is key basic editing would be nice, but I would do all my design on my desktop app. Specific applications:

I would take it to professional conferences so I could present, take notes during sessions and live tweet.

During interviews at professional conferences, we could do a quick briefing on our company easily using the iPad and prezi.

I work for an apartment management company and it would be great to be able to take an iPad to housing fairs and show property information on the iPad (especially if we're using it as a giveaway).

Wow great points guys, thanks! Most of you say you would better use prezi for presenting rather than editing. Do you think that the iPad is generally not a productivity tool?

Definitely more than a presentation tool. Editing and presenting are important because having to switch between devices for different purposes would limit productivity.

I just got started with Prezi on the desktop and I almost immediately got to thinking... Gee, this would really be easy on the multitouch interface! So count me in on EVENTUALLY needing to be able to edit Prezi content on iOS.

BUT... BUT... BUT... I also agree that if we can get a Player app first, that's also a MUST.

(sigh) I really think Apple will have to reconsider it's strategy, and add Flash support to its products. Bullying the Web to move from .flv video to HTML5 seems like only half the battle. It's all the Flash apps!

I will have a classroom set of iPads to teach with next year and I would certainly use the iPad to edit. However, it would also be extremely nice for video and those nice SWF files to show up on the iPad...is there a way you could at least make the videos non-Flash?

My work with Prezi is hindered by the fact that I can't create and edit any Prezis in Ipad, which I use daily for work. I think HTML5 will provide a better and bigger Prezi community

Creating a Prezi by dragging objects around, pinching with two fingers to scale and rotate them, then framing the same way would be a dream to use. Then when presenting, connecting the VGA out directly to the projector, swiping forward and backwards through the frames with three fingers, or directly controlling the view with a single finger drag and two finger pinch zoom. Instantly convincing the 10+ iPad users in my immediate department that Prezi is in fact magical.

Connection to Prezi.com for storage and download of Prezi files would be critical, but when it comes to editing, connection to Dropbox, sharing between apps, and app folder syncing in iTunes would all be helpful ways to import source material.

The iPad is the perfect teaching device. I use it with my students (1 on 1) to cover materials. We also have pdf versions of manuals online for the machine they use.

I use the iPad for twitter, news feed reading and the BIG, (I mean BIG) plus is the simple and elegant integration that allows one to e.g. switch to a web browser, return with a single button press, copy an item to e.g. instapaper, emil and / or tweet an item, etc, etc.

Cool! Do you happen to have any video recording of such an iPad class? It's so great to learn about the most advanced technology already used in the classrooms!

PS, It would be nice to be able to edit on iPad. Take a look at how well Keynote does on a touch interface ;-)) But I'd still rather have Prezi!

I do a lot of selling during lunch, and even my 12 in. tablet is cumbersome to use in this setting.

The iPad is instant on, fast and very capable, with a beautiful screen. I think a Prezi app would certainly be preferable for me to a browser based solution (if this is even possible on mobile Safari), and would likely perform better too.

I use the free version of Prezi, but would pay for an iPad app in a heartbeat. I know you currently work on the subscription model, but maybe the app could be free for those who are subscribers (like the model Spotify uses).

Of course, Prezis that are created online in Flash would somehow have to be transferable to the iPad, and vice versa.

To me, this would be a killer app!!

Yes, please!
In the beginning, I would really like to use it as a presentation device to large audiences and small groups. I would want to have video out capabilities. Eventually, I would like to be able to create presentations directly on the device. In either case, I would like to be able to use features of pinching and zooming in within the prezi. With the ability to embed videos, this could be an awesome way to show videos without having to jump out to another application. With the ability to insert images, I would like to be able to zoom in/pinch to fill the screen with the image or just a portion of the image.

please make a version for ipad. I would use prezi for all my presentations if i could. i would like to be able to embed videos and images- and a nice simple way of presenting. when presenting onto big screen I would like a split screen on ipad- one side with what is being projected, and the other customizable- maybe with time, what the next path step is gonna be, prompt notes or something like that.

either way------- even if i could just play the prezi it would be amazing.
when playing though, you might need to add some nice discreet buttons at the bottom so that you can zoom with ease, as well as just use the touch screen.

If there was an iPad version of Prezi, I wouldn'd need to carry my big heavy laptop with me! I could review/discuss/edit my prezi right from my iPad (or iPhone for that mater!) with my peer at any coffee shop..

Thanks for the great stories, guys! we'd love to have even more! Reading your current use cases of the iPad I wonder: do you ever use the iPad with a projector?

I do, with the VGA adapter. But to do so, I have converted my Prezi into a .mp4 video. It's not the perfect solution, but it's working. I hope you'll give us a iPad version to "run" our prezis.

I do most of my work from an iPad these days and use the prezi viewer to present to clients. The most important feature should be that it works with ios5 mirroring using the apple tv. If there were a paid app for editing I would be happy to buy a copy. At the moment I have to use keynote if I need to create a presentation on the fly.

Ok, do you mean the concept or just the presenting?
What I mean is the concept of collaborative multi-touch presenting tool or just a viewer..
I'm with the collaborative multi-touch presenting tool on the multi-touch table where multiple users can work collaboratively in the same time.. and multiple finger gestures on prezi..
I have some ideas about the multi-touch thing that i can share with Prezi!! =)

Actually i did not have an iPad, but i've done 2 projects on the multi-touch surface top table. That's why i'm excited for seeing Prezi working on a multi-touch environment (example is iPad).

1. Imagine-sitting quietly using Prezi to Mind Map your next meeting.

2. Imagine-5 students sitting around an iPad co-creating their project using Prezi.

3. Imagine Prezi as groupware, allowing the audience to watch their collaboration emerge on a large screen.

4. Imagine the Wow factor when a presenter uses the sexy iPad and Prezi to create a totally new learning experience for the audience.

5. In the above, imagine the BUZZ of possibilities that will be created around iPad and Prezi!
