    I have been searching around for any information and thought maybe someone here could help me out. I'm looking for a way to 'integrate' a keynote file in an application. In essence, to write a keynote presenter. Are there any APIs that allow this?

    As an example, I have written several QuickTime presenter applications and integrated them into some projects. However I can't seem to find any information at all regarding Keynote. I saw a third party program a few months ago that was able to read and present keynote files just fine, so I know it's possible, but I have no idea if that was simply a 3rd party clone of functionality or if there is a library that can be used for this.

    Anyone know?

    There is no API for doing this. However much of the file format (at least for the older versions) is documented on Apple's website.
