Build Status


A pure and simple presentation tool for Android inspired by Takahashi method. With simple markup language you can easily make modern-looking text slides. The main idea of such a technique is to visualize speech keynote with no distracting details. Slides with only a few words shown can easily keep the audience aware of the speaker's point.

It is also said to be extremely helpful with Japanese and other eastern languages which use non-Latin alphabets.

  • Each paragraph is a slide. Blank lines separate slides
  • Text is rendered using the largest possible font size to fit in the slide bounds
  • Single-line text is centered, otherwise it's left-aligned
  • Dot at the beginning of a line is ignored. It's helpful to "escape" blank lines or special symbols inside a slide

Text style

  • Text surrounded with * is rendered as bold (emphasized). Use ** to render a normal * sign
  • Line starting with # is a header
  • Line starting with ␣␣ (two spaces) is rendered as code (monospace).


  • Line starting with @ inserts an image from the URL (web, dropbox, local device storage)
  • Images may be scaled, e.g @ 30%
  • Images may have certain gravity, e.g. @ top
