OK, Noob to the forum here. I searched the threads and found a few regarding powerpoint, but they were all kind of old. I'm looking at getting the 8.9 and using it for teaching in a clinical setting. I need to be able to put powerpoint presentations on it, but don't really need to have animation or sound. Just the slides are fine. It looks like that is possible, but I have no idea how to do it or how complicated it is. I'd like it to be quick and easy so if a specific topic comes up I can quickly add that presentation to the tab and discuss it with the interns. Here are the specific questions:
1. How exactly do you put the presentations on the tab? Directly from the PC via USB or through another third party program? Mighty Meeting??
2. Does Mighty meeting actually allow downloading onto the device or just run in from the cloud through wifi internet connection?(I won't have access to wifi)
3. Do I need a specific app to run it?
4. Does it run like powerpoint on my PC?

Thanks for the help!

I can speak with some experience of Mighty Meeting - our sales execs use it for taking presentations to clients on iPads, but I've got it on my Galaxy Tab as well. To answer your questions:
1) You can load stuff to your MM account by logging into their website (www.mightymeeting.com) from any PC, via the MM app (PC, Android or iOS) or the easiest way is to email it directly into your account (you're allocated an @mightymeeting.com email address).
2) You can run your presentation from the cloud, or download it to your device (we always do this, in case we don't have internet connectivity at a client's premises). You can also view the presentation from their website as well if you don't have anything with the app loaded.
3) You download the app from the Market (Android) the App Store (iOS) or their website (PC)
4) It won't do a lot that Powerpoint will do, but for basic one screen at a time presentations without animation, video, etc (i.e as a substitute for taking a printed presentation) it's ideal. You can also set up a "meeting" between two or more devices where all parties can interact - when giving a training presentation once, I gave the iPad to the trainee, and did the slide changes from my Galaxy Tab - looked more impressive than it sounds!

MM is free for the basic account, which gives you sufficient storage for a few reasonably-sized presentations (can't remember the limits off hand)

We found it preferable over DocsToGo, as that doesn't allow swiping from one slide to the next in full screen mode unless you have the navigation icons on screen (may be different now - it was a few months ago).

Hope this helps

Mike

Mike, Thank you very much for the detailed reply. That sounds like a perfect solution for me.
