View PDF, SWF files, share prezi links on the iPad

We're excited to release the new version of our iPad app featuring some long awaited updates:

1. pdf support: PDF graphics and documents embedded to your prezi shows are now supported on the iPad.
2. share prezi links: tapping a prezi link you received in email, chat, text etc. on your iPad launches Prezi Viewer and downloads the prezi automatically - easy to share and view.
3. swf support: Prezi uses flash - now iPad users can fully experience the magic of zooming presentations (swf animations are not yet supported).

In this update we focused on two areas: providing a full prezi experience on the iPad by removing hardware limitations (SWF, PDF support) and opening up your iPad to be able download and view any prezis out there. To get started we added a small library of prezis we like to the app. Go, explore!

Prezi "Zoom Back to School" Contest

Zoom back to school

We are constantly amazed by the many ways people are using Prezi to share and explore their ideas.

One area we're particularly excited about is how people are using Prezi in the classroom.  From creating complex lectures on brain science,  to teaching children exploratory learning in groups,  teachers and students of all levels are using Prezi to inform and engage their classrooms.

Now, we want to hear from you!

In honor of school getting back in session this year, we are pleased to announce the Prezi "Zoom Back to School" Contest:

Showcase a lesson that you’ve built in Prezi, and tell us how you use Prezi to teach, learn and explore different ideas.  Zoom out to illustrate your science project, or zoom into your plans for a semester abroad. Be creative, and make your prezi relate to the 2010-11 school year.

One Grand Prize Winner will win a new iPad with the Prezi Viewer, so they can pinch and zoom on their Prezi in the classroom. Three runner-ups will also win 1 year Prezi-pro licenses.

Here's How to Enter:

CREATE YOUR PREZI
Tell us about how you plan to use Prezi to teach and learn in your classroom. Inform us about your topic, and what makes you so excited about it.

• Most Fun!  How can you use Prezi to show just how excited/ passionate you are.
• Most Liked: Spread the word and get people to 'like' your prezi!

You say Prezzi, I say Presy

After people have given successful presentations using Prezi on different stages around the globe, there are always some folks from the audience who catch them and ask about the presentation tool they used. The overwhelming majority of these conversations end on a high note: the speaker made an impact and those who just learned about Prezi go home and start working on their own game-changing presentations.

If life were only that simple... Our logs show that many who are interested in Prezi type funny, Prezi-like words into search engines when trying to get started. Below is a list of the top 10 misspellings we found on Google Analytics. Pronouncing them aloud helps to guess the part of the world from which it originates.

1. Prezzi
2. Prezy
3. Presi
4. Prezie
5. Pretzi
6. Preszi
7. Prexi
8. Prisi
9. Prizi
10. Prezio

If you are ever asked about the tool you were using on stage, just say: "it's Prezi - with a Z like zooming." And the name comes from the Hungarian word for: prezentáció".

    Great turnout for Prezi Meetup in San Francisco!

    The Prezi SF team and 50 Prezi users from around the Bay Area gathered last night for a Prezi Meetup in SF. Even though it was a local event, the evening had an international flavor - including Prezi employees visiting from Budapest and students from France and Greece!



    Hosted in the downtown SF location of Nextspace, the evening included demos of the latest features, tips and tricks from two design teams (Prometis and alimatinc), and lots of giveaways. Attendees even got a sneak peek at a soon-to-be-released feature!



    The Prezi team particularly enjoyed talking to users to learn about their challenges, applications, and wish-list of features for Prezi. We look forward to future Meetups - hopefully coming to a city near you!
