The next time you want to create a digital scrapbook, or have to create a presentation, give Flowboard on your iPad a try.

The free app comes with 19 different templates, or an option to create a project from scratch. The templates range from modern and hip to a business-oriented presentation.

You're able to add photos from a long list of services such as Dropbox, Instagram, Box, and even a Google Images search if you can't quite find the right image for a slide.

In addition to photos, you can embed photo galleries, videos, text, and hyperlinks to various content both within the slideshow and on the Web.

After you've taken the time to perfectly craft a photo book to show off your recent vacation, or a killer presentation to land a promotion, you're able to upload it to Flowboard. Once uploaded it will be stored in your account and you'll be given a link to share your work with family, friends, and colleagues. You can share through Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail, or copy the link and share however you see fit. You can still edit the project and upload changes with just a few taps. Furthermore, you can even remove a presentation should you no longer need or want it to be published.

Every free account is allotted 200MB of online storage that resets each week. Premium accounts are allotted 1GB of storage per month, costing $4.99 per month.

While lacking the same power as Keynote or PowerPoint, Flowboard makes up for it in design and ease of use. Adding and adjusting content is straightforward, and sharing is extremely simple. You don't have to worry about file formats and other random variables. If you have an Internet connection and a Web browser, you're able to present.

Download Flowboard from the App Store to get started.
