PhoneSlides - create revision materials to view on your smartphone

Microsoft Powerpoint can save a presentation file as a sequence of JPEG images or as a single PDF file. Most Mobile Phones can display JPEG images.  Smartphones can display PDF files (if you install a free PDF file reader first)

Result? Phoneslides - A revision resource for all your subjects which you can fit in your pocket.

Download and save the presentation.  Load it into Microsoft Powerpoint.  Follow the instructions on the slides.

The attached file was originally developed for A level Physics - but obviously the basic concept will work for most subjects and levels.
