Presentor Has More Nifty Uses Than Seen at First Glance

This app is not currently available in the App Store.

presentor iphoneZap Bang Done's Presentor is a simple, yet clever app, where you can  compile all your Web sites and blog URLs on one page.

There are at least two ways I can see someone using Presentor:

If you often find yourself showing prospects or clients your iPhone/iPod touch's screen — say to show them samples of your Web designs — you might not want them to be distracted by your other apps, especially ones like Pull My Finger and iJiggles Your Mom, no matter innocuous they may really be.

You also don't have to waste time having to show off all the cool things your mobile can do, which everyone who's never seen one up close will surely want, so you can focus on the the important things at hand.

The second way to use Presentor is as a handy, readily accessible place to stow your Web Apps links and book marks. Although most people focus on apps in the App Store, for obvious reasons, there are 1,700 Web Apps you can access from your Homescreen with one touch.Those sites are optimized for the iPhone/iPod touch and they're free. It's as simple as going to a site from Apple's Web Apps page and tapping the Add to the Homescreen button.

You can also place URLs with icons for your most-visited sites on your Homescreen by simply tapping the plus sign at the bottom of the screen while you're in Safari.

What if you could put all of those sites on a single page and reduce the clutter and the need to hunt and peck to find the site you want? That's what Presentor does for about a buck.

Launch Presentor, tap the icon in the bottom right corner and go to the Settings screen.

Tap create Create New Location button, enter a URL, a label and choose one of 70 icons. Tap the Back button, go  back to the Settings screen and continue entering URLs and labels picking icons.

Next, go back to the Settings screen and choose a background for your icons by tapping the Change Background button. You have a choice of 30 backgrounds or you can import one of your own from your Photo Album.

When you're done, tap Done. Abracadabra, all your labeled Web icons will be visible on one page.

If you'd like, you can add a title and other text at the top of the screen to describe your page.

The text for your icons will be quite small if your label is more than one word. The selection of icons are not particularly interesting from a visual point of view and they are quite generic. Those are small flaws but something for the developer to think about in the next iteration of Presentor, if there's one planned.
