    I think Keynote can open a powerpoint file up to some extent. Or if you have a DropBox account, upload the powerpoint file there and open it on your iPad 2 using the DropBox app. it will open the file and show you the slides in PDF form. The content are all there but no animations or transitions.

    There are good apps for doing just that. Quick Office, Office HD, and Docs to Go are all good choices. They also open and work with other MS Office files from excel and word. Each one is a different price and each has some positives and some negatives. Take a look at each one to see what works bets for you. Plenty of reviews on all three of them.

    Hope that helps.

    I would like to recommend a free app called Slideshark. I use it in my classroom.
    You can get Slideshark at the app store but you will need to have a pc or Mac handy to have access to the Slideshark site so you can upload whatever PowerPoint you want to view. Then go to your Slideshark app on your iPad and download/stream it.
    It has worked extremely well for me and has cut down my app purchases for the classroom.

    Good luck.

    Can this be applied the other way using slide shark, ie from keynote to slide shark so I can share a presentation with other iPad users who work remotely?

    I don't use SlideShark, but from the description it should work. Just export the Keynote presentation as a PowerPoint.

    Glad to have given some welcome advice. Yes, I agree that a Keynote presentation should be converted over for use by Slideshark.
