It's amazing that the iPhone--or new iPhone 4S--can perform really like a powerful PC. This means that besides surfing the web, taking photos and playing games--viewing files is allowed. Of course, when we say "file" this doesn't cover PDF, EPUB or other eBooks. Here "file" refers to PowerPoint, Word, or Excel and other everyday files.
Though iPhone itself does not support the above mentioned files, if you want to make it work, there are ways to make it happen. In this article, we're going to talk about two basic ways to play PowerPoint on iPhone. Ok, let's get started.
Convert PPT to PDF for iPhone As I have mentioned that iPhone (iPhone 4S) does not support PowerPoint, but PDF files, so the first option is converting PPT to PDF for iPhone. It is pretty simple to get it done since Microsoft PowerPoint has provided the option for you. Open your PowerPoint, click the Office Button on the top left of the window and navigate to Save AS>Find add-ins for other file formats. After that you'll see the "Save as PDF or XPS add-in" page. Then you need to download and install the add-in. After that, you can tap the Office button, Save the PowerPoint as Adobe PDF for iPhone.
It's free, but it's not convenient to read PDF file. You have to admit that though iPhone attached iBooks could read the generated PDF, the small display makes it difficult to read the PDF file. You have to drag PDF to fit the screen frequently.
Convert PPT to iPhone compatible video Video display is more straightforward and saves time. To make videos from PowerPoint for iPhone, you can use Wondershare PPT2Video Pro. It enables you to convert PowerPoint to iPhone in 3 steps.
1. Launch PPT2Video Pro and select Create Video Files from PowerPoint. Then on the pop-up, click Add to import PPT files and click Next
2. In the Settings, choose MP4 as the output format
3. In the export, click Start.
Bingo! That‘s it! You've made it. After you convert PPT to iPhone compatible format, you no longer need to drag files to fit on iPhone. But the only drawback is that you need to pay for the PPT2Video Pro.
