Even a perfectly prepared presentation can benefit from some onscreen focus. These apps can help improve your Keynote or demo skills with spotlights, highlights, annotations and more.
Presentation Assistant dims everything but what’s under the pointer, creating a digital spotlight to highlight what’s important.
Cursor Pro surrounds your pointer with a prominent circle (or other shape) that changes colour whenever you click (with different colours for click and Control-click). Perfect for UI demos, the app’s magnification feature reveals even the tiniest details.
Highlight. Magnify. Impress.
Are keystrokes and shortcuts integral to your demo? Keystroke Pro displays on the screen whatever you press.
Visualize Your Keypresses
Add lines, arrows, shapes or text right over your screen share – and erase everything with a keypress. Pro tip: Press W to draw on a temporary whiteboard.
Presentify - Screen Annotation
Screen Draw. Highlight Mouse.
For complex annotations on your UI demos, use ScreenBrush to add lines, arrows, shapes and text beforehand, then capture them for overlays you can apply – and edit – on the fly. Use the iOS version of ScreenBrush to control your presentation and annotations without having to be in front of your Mac.
Teach and show using draw
Put a live camera feed on your screen so viewers can see you while you present – or show the screen of your iPhone or iPad. The video fades when the cursor passes over it, so it never gets in the way of your content.
Desktop Camera Viewer
Have a messy desktop – or just a mess of windows distracting from what’s important? Desktop Curtain gives you a virtual backdrop that reveals only the windows you want to show.
