I work in education and have developed lecture materials in PowerPoint. I'm hoping to use the power point content to create a native app for ipad. Each course contains 30 to 40 PowerPoint files which are hyperlinked. Can I use Dreamweaver and Phonegap to package my powerpoints into an app downloadable through iTunes? I'd also like to publish for android devices. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
You will have to rewrite your powerpoint files using HTML5 and CSS3 and jQuery. The only other way that i can think of is to use Flash, and package AIR for apps, but you will still need to recreate your powerpoint files.
Powerpoint slides won't re-scale to fit mobile devices so yes, you need to re-create this for mobile viewports.
Create & package Mobile apps with DW, jQuery Mobile & PhoneGap
