Haiku Deck 2.1
We’ve been hard at work making Haiku Deck an even more powerful tool for communication and storytelling. Here’s a quick tour of what’s new in Haiku Deck 2.1:
In-App Public Notes
Round out your deck with supplemental detail and links to more resources in PUBLIC NOTES, which can now be added right from the app.
Your public notes are published to the web along with your deck, extending the content value of your work. Public notes are a great way to share additional background and details with your audience and make your content more search-engine friendly.
You can also capture talking points, or even a full script, with PRIVATE NOTES, which you can reference as you give your presentation.
When you connect your iPad to a projector and rotate your iPad to portrait orientation (vertically), your private notes will be visible only to you as you advance your slides. It’s like having your own teleprompter! (Get more tips for presenting like a pro in our Present Mode Tutorial.)
Image Favorites and History
As you’re browsing images, if you see one you’d like to use later, press and hold it until the gold star appears.
Tap FAVORITES to see all of your starred images.
And if you’d like to backtrack, tap HISTORY to see your previous 100 image selections.
As you’re browsing images, you’ll now see premium images from Getty Images in the mix. These high-quality, professionally curated images are available for in-app purchase.
Once you purchase a premium image, you can use it in any Haiku Deck you create. Tap HISTORY to access your collection of previously purchased premium images.
If you’d prefer not to see premium images in your search results, you can adjust this setting on the Main Screen.
For more information, visit our Premium Image FAQ.
You can now save time by copying a slide.
