Keynote for the iPad – How to Add Presenter’s Notes to Your Slides


Apple’s Keynote presentation program for the iPad was recently updated. The update includes a number of improvements but two features are still missing – a good size slide preview and the ability to include presenter’s notes. Edwin Lam, developer of the app 2Screens – Presentation Expert, shows how you can add these features. The process requires a few steps and uses the 2Screens app rather than the Keynote app for presenting. You lose any transition effects (slides simply appear) but you gain the ability to annotate the slides while presenting. Tip – lock your screen rotation when using to help avoid crashes.
