Insert a variety of slide objects, such as pictures and shapes, and further customize them by choosing the right fonts, adding stroke effect, text effect, shadow effect and more. With the Zoho Show app in your android phone or tablet devices, you can create new presentations, open and view existing presentations, and import presentations.

Once your theme is applied, a blank slide with the chosen theme and default slide layout (Title Layout) will appear on your screen.  A theme is a collection of colors, font styles, background styles, and more, that will be applied to all slides throughout a presentation.  By default, all the new presentations created will be named "Untitled Presentation" and will be saved in "My Presentations" list in the app.
