Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
Flowboard, a leading mobile-first presentation platform, announced today the launch of Flowboard 2.0 on iPad, which already has nearly 150,000 registered users. Available as a free download through the App Store, Flowboard 2.0 builds on the popular mobile-first presentation app released last Spring with new editable transitions, printing, save-as-PDF capabilities and new premium templates.
Also announced today, Flowboard received $750,000 in new funding from several angel investors to rapidly expand its mobile-first presentation platform with new features and functionality. Flowboard investor Vijay Vashee, former GM of PowerPoint and early Microsoft employee, will also serve as a strategic advisor to the company.
“Flowboard is changing the way people create, share and view presentations, and I’ve been excited about the developments they’ve made over the past year, said Vashee. “And Brent’s passion and vision for helping others easily create, share and view presentations will lead Flowboard to make some major innovations in the market.”
“Vijay knows presentation software, and knows what it takes to build a tremendously successful product which gives us an advantage over our competitors in the space,” said Brent Brookler, Chief Executive Officer of Flowboard. “Vijay and our recent funding gives us the ability to respond to the wants and needs of our users even faster, and the launch of Flowboard 2.0 on iPad demonstrates that.”
Flowboard also offers users a powerful creative toolbox that supports a wide selection of fonts, easy image and video embeds and edits, undo/redo features, snap guides, object duplication, and now non-linear slide transitions for a more appealing mobile experience. All Flowboards are optimized for viewing on any screen-size, and can easily be shared or embedded online, printed or exported to PDF.
Since Spring 2013, Flowboard has reached nearly 150,000 registered users that have uploaded more than 1.7 million pieces of content to create presentations from the iPad app. The market adoption of Flowboard has been largely due to students and teachers at more than 4,000 schools and universities seeking a free, yet superior alternative to conventional presentation software. As schools are beginning to offer a 1:1 iPad programs, Flowboard is there to provide teachers and students the tools they need to easily create and share interactive, and dynamic presentations with others in their class.
“These students are our future workforce, and we’ve been excited to see the organic adoption of Flowboards in schools,” said Brookler. “But Flowboard isn’t just for the classroom, and can be a powerful tool for professionals needing to publish content-rich presentations that are viewable on any screen.”
