Flowboard is presentation software that started its life on iOS, as an excellent tool for building compelling presentations on the iPad. That same sensibility informs the Macintosh version of the app, which came out mid-July. Flowboard presentations are almost like interactive apps: navigation elements, links to documents, videos, image galleries and more. It'a a reimagining of how presentations work — a very different take on the idea that PowerPoint or Keynote. The presentations can be viewed on any platform by anyone.
