We have often waxed lyrical in this blog about our frustrations when it comes to presenting on the iPad. But sitting back moaning and waiting for someone else to come up with a solution has never been the Eyeful way.
This, coupled with our unfailing belief that any piece of technology is only as good as the operator meant that we had to step up to the plate.
Our initial research bought us into contact with some really interesting people (which we’ll tell you more about very soon) and some useful software and insider tips.
So we’ve been subjecting our iPad to some considerable poking, prodding and swiping and accompanied it with just the right level of swearing, incredulity and optimism in order to shape it into the presentation tool that we always knew it could be.
The main challenges were (as always) self-set – we wanted to exploit the maximum functionality of both the iPad and Keynote along with all the other juicy elements that make up our Blended Presenting approach (video, PDFs…the list goes on). At the start of our journey it seemed almost impossible but fortunately that has never been an off-putting factor here at Eyeful and we stuck to our brief until we had conquered it.
Once the final full stop was added we passed our fully formed and very fancy looking iBook around the office. There’s no getting away from it – we were very much impressed with our little selves but it wasn’t until we started showing our customers that it really started to make waves.
The feedback on the Eyeful iBook has been amazing and its sparking real interest from companies who were beginning to feel that their iPad investment was failing them.
The excitement is such that we have decided to offer our regular blogistas the chance to have a peek, if you’re interested please drop us a line and we’ll send you a link.
Whether you’re nosey enough to email or not, it’s worth noting that as a way of sharing information across sales teams and engaging with customers and prospects the iPad is finally starting to live up to its full potential.
