Well, off the top of my head, when starting the presentation, the first
slide could animate in from the right. That should hopefully get the point
across without being annoying.

It's probably not a thing to worry about -- I think the Gallery works
similarly. However, if it turns out that people have trouble with this
anyway, there could be an animation hinting at what to do. (For example, if
the user tries to tap to move to the next slide instead of swiping, the
sllde could move a little bit to the left, revealing a sliver of the next
slide, and then move back.)
