SlideShare Presentations for Android is a unique app that provides shareable content in the form of slides. It’s very similar to other “How-to” apps, in that users make guides to teach things to other users. There are also a lot of articles, or slides, in the app, with top 10 lists which can be quite fun to look at. For example: top 10 gadgets for the technical geek, or best 50 movies of 2014.
I really like SlideShare because there are so many categories and interesting content available for free. I found a slideshow entitled, How to Write a Book in 10 Days. The slideshow provided a lot of useful information, and although it was probably just made to promote a website at the end, it was still a great experience, easily viewed on my mobile phone. I can view a lot of things that are interesting to me, from technology, to geek content, to funny slideshows.
The app is designed very efficiently, with a simple tabs: home, explore, and 'you'. In the home tab, you can see popular slides, and in the explore tab you can explore categories to find other slides. If you like a slide, you can save it in the you tab. The you tab also provides information similar to Instagram, such as followers, following, uploads, and likes.
Besides being organized, the app has a great color scheme, with grey backgrounds and bright white text standing out by the contrasting greys. There are also modern blues to provide easily seen information about tabs, or to show you which tab you are on.
SlideShare provides information to users very easily in its great interface looks good and acts good too. The app is fast, and there aren’t any annoying ads to clutter things up.
