    Hey Guys,

    Background:
    I have a company sales presentation used in the field currently on laptops. The presentation was created in Apple Keynote because of the better graphics capabilities of Keynote vs PowerPoint. Most of the time the sales reps do not have access to the internet in the field on their tablets or laptops. I exported the keynote into a .mov with manual advance play so it could be played in Quicktime on Window Laptops.

    Problem:
    Now many reps are getting android tablets such as Galaxy 10.1 and want to use the presentation on the tablet. Every player I download in the market will not stop for the manual advance but simply plays continually through the file. Any ideas for a better player or format?

    Thanks in advance.

    It seems easiest to export your keynote as a series of images and then play that with a slideshow app which permits manual switching of slides.

    Since you're using a tablet, you don't have the better graphics that you get in Keynote.

    Why not convert to power point for use on the tablets?

    There are more opportunities for little changes to crop up if you use powerpoint. But you will probably need to test both options.

    I need a keynote presentation saved as a .mov file to play back as an actual presentation on an android tablet.

    Same situation as tecgeek430.

    Why not export the Keynote presentation as PowerPoint?

    simple solution. download MOBO player for Android. Plays many file types. Will play
    .mov files exported out of keynote. Also has pause option. Works well.

    Hi All--
    I have lots of experience with this, and the best way I know is to export your Keynote presentations as PDF. There's less likelihood of incompatibility than PowerPoint and it's cleaner than shuffling through a series of images.
