Business Presenters Doodling with Doodlecast

By Andrew Ivey | Presentations

There seems to be no end to the series of clever, resourceful applications targeting business presenters. No doubt their developers sense that many business presentations could do with a bit of spice, some more magic perhaps. Or just a PowerPoint alternative. But, it’s questionable whether these applications will ever meet the targeted need for better presentations. Or whether the presenters themselves will ever rise to the occasion and create the rich content that’s promised in the press releases. So, the most recent offering comes from Toronto-based Zinc Roe with their Doodlecast presentation application, Doodlecast Pro.

But the appeal of these apps is obvious. And we can only hope that their potential is realised to the full.

Doodlecast Presentation Origins

Doodlecast Pro has some interesting origins. Such was the success of and reaction to Zinc Roe’s Doodlecast for Kids application that the designers developed a business-oriented product with all the creativity and originality of the original children’s product. So, Doodlecast presentations became possible. Neat.

The iPad app’ can record your voice as you draw, resulting in original video content that has immediate applications for a business Doodlecast presentation or a training session. It’s capable of mashing together various content sources, importing, exporting and uploading. All the sorts of clever and innovative things you’d expect of an Apple app, priced at $3.99 in the Apple store.

If you have an iPad, then you might be tempted to give it a try. Here’s to creative Doodlecast presentations.
