Here are some ideal apps - including the best - to let you do exactly that on your mobile device.

The best

It’s the only app on the list that requires an initial payment, but you get what you pay for when it comes to Keynote,Apple’s own presentation app.

It has anintuitive interface, andoffers a set of stylish templates and themes, as well as options for adding text, images, charts, tables, and more.

You can easily save content to iCloud as well, and video mirroring lets you show off your hard work.

The rest

Microsoft’s offering is nearly as strong as Apple’s, but it requires an Office 365 subscription which restricts it a little.

There are plenty of ways to include images, tables, charts, and animations, and there's a built-in laser pointer which helps you highlight things.

Got an Apple Watch? You can use it to control your presentation too!

LinkedIn SlideShare, previously known as justSlideShare, brings a community feel to making presentations.

You can explore over 15 million presentations and info graphics, all created by other users and designed for iOS.

There are various topics to explore, plus you can check out top companies like Netflix and get presentation tips directly from them. It's great for inspiration.
