iPad presentation startup Flowboard moves to desktop with Mac product

App_Screenshots_2Most tech companies make the move from desktop to mobile. Flowboard is doing the opposite.

The Seattle startup has spent the past year-and-a-half working on an iPad presentation app, and today the startup launched new software for Mac users.

The desktop product mimics Flowboard’s iPad app, allowing users to create, edit, and view cloud-based presentations. The app costs $9.99 to start and will jump to $19.99 after the first 10,000 downloads.

Flowboard has nearly 200,000 registered users and has signed up more than 4,000 schools to use its product. It competes against a handful of other presentation startups in Seattle, including 9SlidesHaiku Deck, and Jackson Fish Market.

Flowboard was formed after being rebranded from a company CEO Brent Brookler founded seven years ago called Treemo Labs. Treemo is still doing business with its existing customers, but the company is now representing itself as Flowboard first.
