More advisors are using their mobile tablets to replace their paper-based “pitch books.” There are dozens of iPad presentation apps, but Apple’s Keynote may be the easiest way to present dazzling presentations on the go. It lets you upload charts, photos, and animations. You can go with one of 12 pre-designed themes, or you can create your own from scratch. It also lets you upload existing PowerPoint slide presentations and embed YouTube videos to keep it entertaining.  The Keynote app lets you present it on your tablet or, if you have the cables, via a projector or HDTV.
