Working of PowerPoint presentations on ios devices is a big problem nowadays. Many companies are working on developing a tool which makes html5 files from presentation that work on ios platform. In my opinion 'HTML5Point' created by DigitalOfficePro is very useful and simple way to convert PowerPoint presentation to html5 format.
