Swipe: Web-Based Presentations Made Easy

Creating and sharing live presentations just got easier. 

London-based startup Swipe launched out of private beta today (Nov. 21), bringing their cloud-based presentation app to users everywhere.

Swipe is not the first presentation app to ever hit the Web, but its selling point is that Swipe presentations are all about the audience. 

Like websites that automatically adjust to fit the visitor's device, Swipe presentations have a responsive design that provides the best viewing experience — whether the audience is on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Presentations work with any screen size and are optimized to load quickly across all devices.

[10 Best App Makers]

Swipe presentations are easy to create and can be edited on any device; the Web-based app requires no coding skills. Users can drag and drop all types of content into their presentation, including PDF, Keynote, PSD, EPS and image files.

Swipe also supports embedded videos, but users can skip the hassle of inputting the code themselves: Just paste the YouTube or Vimeo link into the presentation and Swipe does the rest. 

To protect user privacy, all Swipe presentations are private until users ready to broadcast them.

To share presentations, users are given a link that they can send to an unlimited number of viewers. Presentations are broadcasted in real time and can be viewed over Wi-Fi, LTE or 3G connections. As the presenter "swipes" from one screen to another, the audience sees exactly what the presenter sees, providing an interactive experience on their own personal devices. 

Swipe also provides access to analytics so users can track how many people have viewed the presentation.

Presentation links do not expire and are only removed when the user deletes them. 

Swipe is used by more than 50,000 entrepreneurs, speakers and other business leaders. The startup is backed by London-based venture capitalist firm Passion Capital.
