With all the PlayBook announcements this week from RIM, everyone is even more anxious to get their hands on one. Thankfully, due to a lot of hard work, there will be plenty of applications in BlackBerry App World for the PlayBook once they start shipping out.
One of these apps is called Prezenn by developer Signalphire. Prezenn is a fantastic looking presentation application that allows you to create slideshows right on your PlayBook, wherever you are. You can add graphics, text, color - basically anything you would normally need in a slideshow. While watching the instructional videos I noticed a really interesting feature. When adding images, you can open up a Google search from within the app, find an image from the internet, and insert it directly into your presentation with one touch. No resizing required!
Once your slideshow is ready to go, simply email it to your inbox where you can open it with Powerpoint or OpenOffice Impress for presenting. If you have a SlideShare account, you can also upload it there. The convenience of being able to do all of this, and not be tied to your desk, is huge. Prezenn was literally just approved for BlackBerry App World, so we don't have any info on pricing yet, but this is definitely an app you'll want to remember to get once you get your PlayBook.
