Haiku Deck 2.1

We’ve been hard at work making Haiku Deck an even more powerful tool for communication and storytelling. Here’s a quick tour of what’s new in Haiku Deck 2.1:


In-App Public Notes

Round out your deck with supplemental detail and links to more resources in PUBLIC NOTES, which can now be added right from the app.

Your public notes are published to the web along with your deck, extending the content value of your work. Public notes are a great way to share additional background and details with your audience and make your content more search-engine friendly.

You can also capture talking points, or even a full script, with PRIVATE NOTES, which you can reference as you give your presentation.

Adding private notes to your deck

When you connect your iPad to a projector and rotate your iPad to portrait orientation (vertically), your private notes will be visible only to you as you advance your slides. It’s like having your own teleprompter! (Get more tips for presenting like a pro in our Present Mode Tutorial.)
