The iPad's HD touch screen makes a great medium for viewing interactive presentations on Prezi for iPad. But for creating presentations, Prezi for iPad is bare bones compared to the online computer version. While the computer version offers fabulous templates and themes for starting a presentation, the iPad version is designed for editing or viewing presentations or for creating basic presentations. On the app, there are just a handful of basic templates, and you won't find options to add music, insert video, and more. Still, if you want to create a quick presentation on the fly, it gets the job done.
