I have a PowerPoint presentation - how can I watch it on my iPad, but in a way that it just scrolls though continuously on a loop?

Save them on a PC as a jpeg for every slide, then transfer them and start a slide show in photos on the iPad. Or use Keynote app.

Why don't you just sync the folder using iTunes?

You can import the presentation into Apples own Keynote for iPad, then set it to loop via the advanced settings.

Not a free solution certainly, and you may run into compatibility issues, depending on the complexity of the source PowerPoint document, but you can edit the presentation directly on the iPad if changes are required.

I use cloudon which is free and run powerpoint presentations slide shows all the time as part of my work.
Its a great free office app that integrates great with the cloud and a lot more,

I use dropbox to share files with it from pcs and other sources, its just seamless transfer/sharing then.

My iPad just shows them in the email when I send them to my email account. I also have Keynote which reads PPT files

Sometimes I convert PowerPoint presentations to video format and play them on my iPhone.
The converted videos keep effects of the original presentations like fonts, animations, music, etc.
