Application #2: Infonet Presenter for iPhone
Infonet Presenter is an integrated presentation system and multi-purpose platform that allows speakers the luxury of displaying a buffet spread of files in a few clicks, from web content, to images, videos, podcasts, documents created by your office software, and documents sitting on your intranets. You can organize all these presentation assets in presentation folders so that during the presentation you can focus on the message, and not on technology.
