Exhibition runs on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices as a universal APP and needs iOS 5 or newer.

How do I copy files to Exhibition with iTunes?

Select your device in iTunes, select APPs in the title bar, choose Exhibition in the lower pane, then drag&drop files into the APP (currently you cannot copy folders).

How do I synchronize with Dropbox?

Once the e-Mail and its attachment are visible, click on the submenu to open the attachment with another APP - for instance Exhibition.

How do I setup Exhibition?

There are four ways to the setup: pinch with two fingers, shake the device or click in the upper left corner of the screen. Then the file overview will be displayed alongside the setup, dropbox sync file sharing an further information. If the overview/setup is locked, you can only access those after launching the APP.

Can I present a slideshow from one device to other devices?

That's what file sharing is for:

  1. Install Exhibition on all devices
  2. Set all other devices to receive your data
  3. Setup your device to distribute data to other devices
  4. Select each destination device on your device to send them the data in order to remote control it
  5. Start the presentation

It's a good idea to lock the other devices in order to prevent them from interruption or distraction.

Images and documents are displayed in maximum screen size and scaled proportionally. Your can rotate your device to any orientation you like.

To prevent any rotation on the iPad, you can setup the hardware side-switch in the Settings APP under General to be used as a Rotation lock.

In some rare cases, erasing the APP from your device and reinstalling it again helps.
