23 Ways to Share Your Haiku Deck

So you’ve created an amazing Haiku Deck, something you’re proud of. Something you want to show to anyone and everyone, including the innocent bystander standing next to you on the subway platform. Well, we agree. It’s time to set your beautiful story free! And there are so many ways to do it, both straight from the app on your iPad or from the Haiku Deck website. Here’s how!

Sharing from the app

1. Play your deck directly from your iPad, the modern and engaging way to pitch to a small group. And with the parallax effect at work, advancing your slides has never been sexier.

2. Connect your iPad directly to a projector for a “1: many” talk, either through a direct connection with an iPad VGA adaptor.


3. with Apple TV via Airplay. For more on how to do this, check out this post.

4. Email your deck to yourself. Doing this generates a very useful web link. By clicking through this link, you will be magically transported to your gallery on the website, where you can add notes, set your privacy, see how many views you’re generating, or get selected for our Gallery or one of our highly prestigious Pinterest boards…must we go on?

5. Email it to a friend or friends! They will be amazed at your Haiku Deck prowess and honored to receive your deck, especially if it’s an invitation, like this one.

6. Share your deck directly to your Facebook page and watch those views rack up.

7. Do the same on Twitter. Nothing says “Happy Birthday” like Haiku Deck!

8. Grab an embed code for your blog or website. This is a fantastic way to add rich content in a flash. You can see the most-viewed Haiku Deck of all time here, by Desiree Groenendal of Vosgesparis.

9. Export your deck to Powerpoint or Keynote. From there you can add video, transitions, the whole nine yards. You can also upload it to SlideShark to view and share from your iPhone or iPad. Fancy. This article has some helpful detail about why and how you might want to do this. You can also make a video out of your Haiku Deck after exporting it to Powerpoint or Keynote.

10. Want to add a soundtrack to your Haiku Deck? Create a Slidecast and engage your audience with visuals and sound. Here’s a great example of Haiku Deck/Slidecast integration from Dr. Michelle Mazur.

11. Copy a URL to your clipboard. This is handy for classroom iPads without access to email.

But the app can’t do everything. Only when the powers of the iPad and the web combine does Haiku Deck magic truly happen. After making your deck, head to the Haiku Deck website to access, track, and share all of your creations.

  1. Is it possible to share so another user can watch it in the Haik Deck-app on another iPad? The web-share is great, but I loose the nice transition between the pictures/messages then…

    How do I upload my new deck to my photos?

  3. Can I wirelessly present my deck from a mac-book to ipads so that as I transition from one slide to another on my laptop it also transitions on each of the multiple ipads..

    • Hi there, sorry we didn’t see your comment until now. There isn’t a way to do this just yet, but it’s a great suggestion and it’s something we’re working on. Thanks for the feedback!

  4. Greetings. I had linked my Haiku Deck to my course website. It seems to open with the link but I get a black box where the Haiku Deck is supposed to be visible. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Harry, I’m sorry for the trouble! Usually, when we see this issue, it’s because the internet connection in use is blocking certain types of activity by a firewall. Most commonly, we see this from people using Haiku Deck in school districts, computer labs, and other public places. The best thing to try to fix this is to attempt to load your decks on another network, such as from home, where firewall settings may not be so strict. If you find that your network is indeed having trouble with the images in our app and your decks saved to the web, most users have had success approaching the IT department in charge of the network and requesting to whitelist flickr. is the domain our image search works through and pulls images from, so if it’s whitelisted (or added to a safe list for the network firewall), it should fix this issue.

  5. How do you add transitions to your slides?

    • Hi Ariel, we don’t have any slide transitions available but we really appreciate your feedback! We’ll make a note of it and take it into consideration for future updates.
