After you install PowerPoint for iPad, the next thing you want to do is run it! However, running the program for the first time is a little different and requires that you understand about creating an account, signing in, etc. And yes, you can still use the program without signing in – but in the long run, if you want to use PowerPoint to its optimum – then you must make yourself familiar with these tasks.
When you use the Pen and Highlighter tools to annotate, you are provided an option to save those annotations when you exit Slide Show view. If you do opt to save them, then you will actually open doors to new capabilities that will allow you to edit these annotations – in fact you can also change these annotations to shapes and work more with them!

At the time of writing, you need a device that runs Apple iOS 7 or later.
