Bastian, our video guru, once was asked to host a workshop about our app iStopMotion on very short notice. He figured the best way would be to show some pictures of people using it and videos that were made with it. Since he didn't have time to prepare a slideshow and didn't know what order to put the photos and videos in, he searched for an app that would allow him to randomly pick photos or videos from the photo roll and display those in a nonlinear presentation on a screen connected via AirPlay or HDMI as he went along with his story. The challenge was that there were some pictures and video in his photo roll he didn't want the audience to see.

Because his search did not yield any satisfactory results, we made PhotoPresenter for iOS for him.

And now you can use it, too.

"...clever idea…" – Bryan Chaffin, MacObserver
"PhotoPresenter is a very good idea at a very low price." – Mel Martin, TUAW

It's perfect for the ad hoc show and tell session. Simply hook up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to an HDTV set or a projector with HDMI or VGA (for example by using the Lightning Digital AV Adapter) or via AirPlay. Next, browse your photo library to find the photo or video you want to show. Click on the picture or video and it will appear on this second screen. Your audience will not see any other picture. You can jump back and forth and are not restricted by a preset order. Maybe you have multiple versions of the same motif and want to pick the best? There is a preview mode for that.

Use the built-in Laser Pointer tool to point out features of your photos or highlight an area with the Mouseposé-inspired spotlight effect.

Nothing happens


Appears to be junk. I get nothing but an icon and it goes no further. It says to connect to my appletv with AirPlay which I do and nothing happens but a cute little icon staring at me




Excellent Application

Brian Stipak

Have found this an excellent application for making presentations with mixed photos and videos. Allows you to see thumbnails for other photos/videos as you present, giving great flexibility in choosing the photo/video to show next. I connect my iPad to a large flat-screen TV via an audio-video adaptor and HDMI cable, rather than using Airplay via Apple TV. Using a cable avoids delays while videos load over Wifi, but with photos only that would not be an issue.

One recommended improvement: Add a setting for the color of the outline on the box for the photo/video being viewed. The color now is blue, and I find that it does not stand out well, so I don't find the place I am on always really quickly. I would like to be able to select red as the outline color. Having an option for the thickness of the outline might be good also.
