Swipe – Interactive Presentations on Any Device

Forget what you think you know about presentations. PowerPoint slideshows and stuffy boardrooms are no longer necessary when people use Swipe. Swipe is a web-based platform that professionals can use to give live presentations to anyone, in any location, using any device.

Create your first presentation on Swipe by dragging and dropping various files into place across a series of online decks. Swipe places no limits on the size or amount of files you add, and requires no apps or software downloads to use the service. One of the great things about Swipe is how easy it is to mix various types of web content into a basic presentation. Include a video on one slide, a photo on another, and an audio file on a third. When your presentation is complete, you can share it with others by distributing a unique URL. All Swipe presentations are private by default, allowing you to decide who should be able to view your project and when they should be able to view it.

Once the link to your presentation has been distributed, you can go ahead and give your presentation in real-time to an audience over 3G, LTE, or WiFi. Swipe ensures that the files you’ve uploaded will look great regardless of whether the user is using a tablet, smartphone, or desktop computer. You also have the option of embedding your presentations on any blog or website, allowing strangers to review your work and offer their unique insights.

Practical Uses:

  • Create a formal presentation to announce a new project
  • Include videos in the presentation you’re creating for work
  • Enable telecommuting employees to participate in group meetings
  • Limit access to the presentations you build by keeping them marked as private
