Giving a keynote speech or pitching a book can be tough, but having nice visuals to rely on can help  you capture your audience’s attention.

Haiku Deck, a free iPad app, lets you create slide decks and presentations that are designed to be visually stunning. You can use the app to create your own slide decks and it holds your hand along the way. The app has basic templates and backdrops that you can use to get started and then modify the text, font, colors, etc. along the way. The app has libraries of free Creative Commons licensed photos you can add to your slides, or you can import images from your iPad or from your social accounts including: Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, and Picasa. You can use the app to create pie charts and graphs, as well.

Once you have created a slide deck, you can then export it to PowerPoint, Keynote or to the web. You can also make a PDF. And you can share the creation via email and social networks including Slideshare and LinkedIn.
