Keynote for iPad gets a facelift in the latest Keynote 1.2

Plethora of new improved features should make this new edition a whole lot of fun.
Pallab Jyotee Hazarika,

Keynote 1.2 which is well known for the ease by which it lets users create presentations surprisingly simply, and innovatively has just had a makeover for the iPad. As a result of this revamping exercise, Keynote for iPad now has much more to offer with an exciting set of new animations laid out on the platter. These include new build and transition options which are not available in the Mac OS, with the debut of the Lens Flare, Spin and Wipe build animations and the Revolving Door, Swoosh and Wipe transition animations which can be played along with, right at a few taps of your fingertips.

Not only is that, now onwards, thanks to Keynote, audio elements can be incorporated as a part of your presentation. Well have you ever felt the need to do that 11th hour polishing to your slides? That problem is solved to - Keynote for iPad now allows users the flexibility to add formatting features and change text styles without having to revert back to the original presentation. Also slide numbers for presentations can be added at the last moment when in a hurry.

There are some other small but handy additions like improved font substitution routine, improved animation handling, sharing presentations on the fly (described below in detail) along with improved importing support.

Publishing slides also just got a whole lot easier with the Keynote for iPad allowing for publishing via a whole plethora of options, and also owing to the update, the copying of presentations between Keynote and a WebDAV hosting service such as the MobileMe iDisk site from Apple is now possible.

In addition to the whole new range of new features added on to it, Keynote for iPad has yet more to boast off, for instance the object grouping and table handling enhancements and improved font matching routines for imported presentations.

Beyond doubt then, this updated version for the Apple tablet released in late September this year, surely leaves no stone unturned in putting the show... in “Slideshow”!
