Here we go again today’s the day (if you got up really early and queued) that you can get your hands on the new iPhone 7 (Android user’s stay with me)…

So what’s new?

Basically the headphone socket is no more, instead there are Stereo Speakers that are better, louderand much quicker at draining your battery. Which should be fine as it has a longer battery life of 10 daysunless you actually use it. For anything.

It’s now water (but not toddler tantrum) resistant.

There are two new colours of jet black and erm, black. What happened to Space Grey?


Thankfully 16GB of storage is a thing of the past – never again will you need to delete a photo in order to take another one, and if you are really snap happy there is a 256GB version.

And of course it has a faster processer...

(I love that video, it’s the kind of seriously cool thing we do regularly for our customers.

Ok, so you now that you potentially have your mitts on a sparkly, new iPhone 7… how can it help you when it comes to presentations?

Well, there happens to be some seriously good (IOS and Android friendly) presentation related apps out there…

PowerPoint – The App for Delivering Intimate Presentations…
The arrival of the PowerPoint app was the single biggest game changer for device presentations we’ve ever seen…

Thanks to the PowerPoint app heralded the true birth of informal presentations. Finally, presenters could leave their clunky laptops at the office, and enjoy truly interactive and informal conversational presentations.

Splashtop – The App for complete presenter control over big screen presentations

This app is great because it turns your device into a second (albeit smaller) PC monitor, this alone is really handy. But when it comes to presenting you can use Presenter View…

This means you can use your iPhone or iPad as a complete presentation control centre for your big screen slides…

So you don’t need extra paper notes, you don’t need a clicker, you don’t need to keep looking at the clock and you don’t need a PowerPoint operator to click on hyperlinks for you.

Finally, presenters can have free reign of movement on the stage whilst keeping full control of their presentation too. Cool eh?

Office Lens – The App for WhiteBoard Presentations
Whiteboarding is a great way to deliver information in a more interactive way than traditional screen-based presentations.

But of course you are faced with the age old problem of taking away large sheets of paper, having the audience draw along with you or someone lining up to take photos.

Microsoft’s Office Lens app though is a great way to capture whiteboards…

You take a photo using the app, no need to spend time lining up as the app scans what you're taking and straightens it out.

You snap away until the end of the presentation, then in one-touch you can save all of your images to OneNote, OneDrive, Word, PowerPoint, PDF or even Outlook – so share them with your whole audience right away is a breeze.

You could also use Apple’s iMovie to turn your pages into a video with a commentary all on your iPhone 7!

Powerful stuff.

So those are our 3 must-have presentation apps for your new iPhone 7 (or Android). We’d love to hear about your experiences if you use any of these apps, just drop us a line…
