SlideShare, the file and presentation hosting platform, is taking the step and launching its first native mobile app today.
Launched initially in 2006, SlideShare lets users upload PowerPoint, PDF, Keynote or OpenDocument files to share publicly or privately. But the company really started to bloom when LinkedIn acquired it back in 2012.
The app is only available for Android devices right now but there is little doubt an iOS version should be around very soon.
This is all about following topics, viewing presentations, saving for offline access and sharing your favorites. It’s actually very nicely designed, and lets you swipe sideways through a deck without leaving the main presentations feed – to view it full-screen, you just have to tap.
Moreover, the Android launch comes along with a great update on the web-based SlideShare which now lets you generate a preview of how your handiwork will look on various mobile devices in any standard desktop browser.
