Haiku Deck allows you to create presentations quickly and easily. This tool allows you to create from your iPad, iPhone, or on the web so it’s a very mobile solution.


Who Haiku Deck is For:

The ideal Haiku Deck user is someone who needs to create a presentation and wants to use simple templates to get their message across and help short-cut their time.

Skill Level:

Haiku Deck claims they are the easiest way to make a presentation. Using their drag-and-drop interface, they do offer an easy to use software along with templates for creating presentations.


The application is deployed completely online. You’ll login to your account area to access the application.

Special Features:

Haiku Deck keeps the focus on simple, clear presentations. You can start with a template and gain access to over 40 million images. This application helps you keep your presentation simple and keep the focus on images rather than cluttering up your slides with too much text. In addition, you can use it on the go which is a big selling point for a lot of its users.


I like that Haiku Deck keeps your presentation simple, but not all of the templates have well planned design elements (especially between the slides). A lot of the templates seem more like a collection of nice slides thrown together. You can definitely use this tool without using their templates. You can create your own templates or alter their templates so they have similar design elements within them.
