Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Prezi for iPad pairs with the Prezi website for showing presentations created online or for creating basic presentations. You'll need to be at a computer to get the templates and themes that really jazz up prezis, but once you create one online you can view it on your iPad. Parents should also know that prezis created using the free account are available for public viewing. Only paid accounts can create private presentations. Kids need to be 13 or older to use the service.

What's it about?

PREZI FOR IPAD is bare bones compared to the online computer version. While the computer version offers fabulous templates and themes for starting a presentation, the iPad version is designed for editing or viewing presentations or for creating basic presentations. Teens must register for account to use the service, and they need to be 13 or older. After logging in, teens can see any prezis they've created online as well as a curated list of 10 "featured" prezis. Or they can start a new prezi on a white grid, adding text or images only.

Is it any good?


The iPad's HD touch screen makes a great medium for viewing interactive presentations on Prezi for iPad. You can also create basic prezis on the device, but compared to the website experience, it's a bit disappointing. On the app, there are just a handful of basic templates, and you won't find options to add music, insert video, and more. Still, if you want to create a quick presentation on the fly, it gets the job done.

Work created or edited on the app syncs right away with your online account, and vice versa, so you can create a more detailed prezi with audio, video, PDFs, etc., on the computer and tweak it on the go as needed -- this is the real strength of the app.

Families can talk about...

  • View your teen's presentations and offer constructive feedback.

  • Encourage teens to use the website to have more options when creating prezis, including starting with a blank canvas for ultimate creative freedom.
