makeSlides will convert markdown, OPML and plain text into Microsoft PowerPoint format (Office2007 and above.)
Create your presentation using one of the great markdown/text editors on iOS then send it over to makeSlides for conversion to PowerPoint.
Once converted, presentations can be previewed, emailed, printed or sent to another app such as Dropbox, GoodReader, Evernote, Keynote etc.
You can even send OPML outlines from apps such as OmniOutliner for conversion.

- Rebuilt for latest versions of iOS
- Added x-callback-url support.
Ratings and Reviews
Unique capability and very functional
Although minimal controls and formatting flexibility, this app works exactly as advertised, provides a unique and unusable function, saving time from text, markdown, or OPML to slides.
Go from plan text or markdown directly to makeSlides and export to Keynote. Also export iThoughts map (or OmniOutliner outline) in OPML directly to makeSlides and then into Keynote.
Sides and resulting Keynote are vanilla, but assume slides can be copied into open formatted and themed Keynote. Simple text works best to avoid slide formatting problems.
This app serves a useful purpose and saves cut and past from apps into Keynote. Especially useful in retrospect, using previously written OPML or text/markdown not originally scheduled to be slides. Keep it simple, however.
Creates basic slides from markdown. I use it with editorial and everything works great.
I was hoping for an iOS equivalent of Deckset for OS X. This lacks even the most basic features of that app. For instance, one can't make a slide without title text!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
