The result you'll get is a linear presentation with great visual potential, perfect for storytelling purposes.

The app is free. Download it here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stampsy/id582398120?mt=8

Stampsy is an interesting graphic tool currently for the iPad. It has a few necessry tools such as Headline, Text, Images, Colour Palette, Various Fonts, and best of all it is limited to 10 pages. If Powerpoints were limited to 10 pages I wonder how much real information would be lost? No doubt we'd see the important information. Check it out.
