There's one good ppt viewer but it is not FREE. Pocket SlideShow 1.2 by CNetX will serve your purpose but the price is $19.95. I don't know if there are any FREE ppt viewer out ...

Well, I found one Freeware app that might do the trick:


But, there are a fair amount of criticisms on Pocket Gear about it. Your mileage may vary. I haven't tried this myself but might give it a spin later.

Viewsonics come with the Clearvue program and it works prefectly. If you really need a viewer then buy it.

I haven't found a free one or tried the one in the previous post, but I have tried most of the ones that will cost you some $$$.

I was wrong. I have tried the freeware app from ipresenter. It is a great piece of software considering it is free, but when I tried using it with my VGA card it kept telling me that my VGA drivers were not up to date and to download the new ones from colorgraphic. I checked with colorgraphic to make sure what I was using was the latest driver, then called ipresenter. They told me that I should call colorgraphic because they had tested their software with that card and couldn't offer much more support for a freeware app.

If your going to purchase one, it depends on what you need
Pocket Slides by conduits is a very powerful program that lets you build and edit ppt shows right on your device. I thought the program ran a little slow and it locked up my device a few times. It does convert the file to its own format though. 39.95

If you want to view ppt files with no conversion I believe the only program available is pocket slideshow by cnetx. 19.95

some ppt files can be quite large though and take up a lot of precious space on your device or storage card.
If you don't need the ppt file to be in their native format, then I recommend IApresenter from IA Style. I have been using this program for about six months and have had no problems at all.
I use a Voyager VGA card to output to a projector, and the show I have mainly been presenting is 15MB in its native format, but only 4MB after running it through the desktop converter. 19.95

ClearVue needs no conversion either.
