I am sorry Sproutster is not working for you. It is an app for iPad that is free from the iTunes store. I don't have an iPad at present to test this app so I'll have to rely on another community member to see if he/she has a solution to your problem with Sproutster.

It has a "blank canvas" design and this can be used to create presentations, but we have had great luck using it for brainstorming, mind-mapping, making eBooks, and so many other applications. My students love it and it is so simple to use that they pick it up within minutes.
Here are some resources on Prezi from ReadWriteThink.org:

I haven't visited this discussion in quite a while, but I started using a few sites that I have to share. (Forgive me if they have already made it into the list.)
21 Things 4 Students Really nice, compact site that takes students through a variety of Web 2.0 tools, training, and knowledge of responsible use online.
Oh my word what a fabulous site. My online students and I are still discovering it together, but they are excited about the opportunity to use it for US History projects.
