MediaPost Communications, a media and advertising news and publishing company, recently announced that Brainshark, an online and mobile presentation software, has been awarded with an Appy Award for its SlideShark iPad App.

The application won the Appy Award during the second annual awards ceremony in the business category, as it allows business professionals create and play PowerPoint presentations on their iPad.

“The caliber of this year’s entries was remarkable and the winners no doubt reflect the most exciting and groundbreaking apps across a number of different industry categories,” said Sergei Kogut, awards director at MediaPost. “We were honored to recognize this year’s winners, including Brainshark’s SlideShark app, which demonstrated the highest level of excellence and are truly paving the way for the burgeoning app industry.”

This application, which lets mobile business workers share any PowerPoint presentation with the necessary fonts and colors from anywhere around the world, has been seeing two downloads per minute since it came out October 2011. The newest upgrade allows these individuals to track who has viewed the presentation as well.
