Seattle startup continues to push productivity paradigm forward, with expanded opportunities for mobile presentation creation, editing, viewing, and sharing

Seattle, WA — February 13, 2014 — Haiku Deck today announced the release of an iPhone app to round out its offering of presentation tools for the mobile age. The new iPhone app works flexibly with Haiku Deck for iPad and the Haiku Deck Web App Beta, opening up powerful new options for browsing, viewing, and presenting — and even turning the iPhone into a remote — on the go.

Mobile traffic to the Haiku Deck website has skyrocketed–iPhone visits in Q4 increased by a factor of 18 compared to the same period in 2012, reflecting a broader industry trend. And with more and more Haiku Decks being shared and viewed on small screens, Haiku Deck for iPhone offers a mobile-optimized display of its signature image-rich, minimal-text decks.

For the global community of Haiku Deck users, the iPhone App also delivers expanded flexibility for viewing and presenting, with the ability to download decks for offline viewing or spontaneous pitching in a taxi, plane, or Wifi-strained conference venue. Those giving live talks can present their Haiku Decks using the iPhone as a remote control — a feature frequently requested by conference presenters and tech-savvy trainers and teachers alike.

Gallery browsing in the iPhone App plants the seeds for creating new Haiku Decks, functionality available now on iPad and in the Web App Beta and coming soon — with features tailored to the smaller, more portable form factor — to iPhone.

Haiku Deck has demonstrated strong momentum since its launch in August 2012 — the iPad app, now available in 8 languages, has been downloaded close to a million times and has ranked #1 in productivity in more than 40 countries worldwide. The Haiku Deck Web App Beta, launched in November 2013, makes deck creation and editing available to anyone with a browser. These innovative, mobile-first presentation tools are designed to work flexibly, alone or in concert, and with the new iPhone App for a seamless, cross-device experience.
