Playback is supported using the latest version of Safari on the Mac and PC. You can also view the presentation using an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, which allows you to swipe the screen to advance the slides. will also now allow users to create a public link so you are able to share the uploaded documents on social-media sites. You can also use the supplied embed code to post your shared documents on your Web site.

You will need an Apple ID to access your space. Using Apple's iWork suite of applications, you can post documents to the service by going to the Share menu and choosing "Share via"
