    Hello!

    I'd like to make PowerPoint presentations using an iPad.

    I have come to conclude that my best option would be to use an app like SlideShark (FREE), wirelessly streaming the iPad's image via Apple TV (AirPlay).
    The thing is, I didn't intend to buy an Apple TV just for that (it's quite expensive where I live).
    Is there any other way to make wireless mirrorring possible?

    I've had some ideas as workarounds, but none of them has come to satisfy me:

    - Using a remote desktop app, as splashtop or jumpdesktop, to access the PPT file from iPAD, having the PC connected to the projector/HDTV. This would require an internet connection (right?), which may not be available at the presentation site. The control over the ppt presentation, in the other hand, wouldn't be as fluid as it would with SlideShark or QuickOffice (forwarding and backwarding slides by using gestures, laserdot option etc.)
    - Using cable mirroring. This would severely limit the speaker movements.
    - I could use a remote control app, as HippoRemote or Remote HD, but that as well would require internet connection (right?), and isn't quite what I was looking for.

    Any other suggestion? Am I missing something here?
    Thanks for the help...

    If this is still an issue for you - and you still do not want to buy an apple TV - then why don't you use a vga/HDMI connector and plug it directly to a projector? In this setting there is no need to have a wifi connection.
    And of course my best solution for this is the keynote app. Works great. Either via iCloud or dropbox or another cloud service.

    Hi
    Mm..
    BTW even apple tv would require wifi.
    Actually its not that hard to have local wirelees network
    All my sugestions will require a wifi (no internet needed) but dont worry.
    FIRST: i really suggest that you use keynote its very good and when you finish your presentation you can save it as PDF, keynote or powerpoint file..

    Those are the methods:

    - if you have another device (iPhone or ipod touch), then you can control keynote from you other idevice.. (ther is an app called keynote remote). So you connect your ipad with the projector and leave it there :)
    - get an apple tv.. Then you know how to..
    - install an application called "reflection" on you computer (for both pc & mac), and it will make your ipad think that it is an apple tv, (save money)

    Ok, now for making a local network
    - If you have an iPhone 4 or above u can make a local hotspot (google it)
    - If you have another apple device AND its jailbroken, then you can install an app from cydia called MyWi, and it makes a local wifi too
    - if you have an android phone there's also an option for that.
    - if not, bring your laptop with you and make a local network

    I didn't get into details about getting a local network, but use google and youtube :D

    If you have any question just ask, and i hope that it helps

    Looking at the reviews of current Apple's VGA/HDMI adapters, it appears there are a lot of compatibility issues depending on device model, iOS version, app, etc.

    What is a person to do? Going back to using a laptop with VGA output?

    To control the powerpoint presentation, I use an external remote control, works pretty well. It works great even far away from the device. I recommend.
