Keynote

Keynote is best known for its smooth animations, with enough customization options that you could mock up a new app in Keynote and make it almost feel like you're actually using the app, instead of looking at a demo in a presentation. When you're ready to present, you can use an iPhone to remote control your presentation from your Mac, or present online for free with Keynote Live's presentation streaming.
