Looking for a free, easy way to make beautiful presentations and have fun doing it? Welcome to Haiku Deck. Here's a short video that explains why we built Haiku Deck and shows you what you can do with the app.
It's a simple app where you can put together awesome slide decks, taking advantage of an library of over 40 million free images to use as backgrounds. It features simple, elegant themes and layouts to keep your presentation looking attractive and entertaining, and it's available for PC, Mac, Chrome OS, iPhone and iPad.
We've taken a few different approaches to helping users who are new to the app, since different folks learn different ways. Which way do you think would work best for you?
