It would be nice if Keynote supported portrait mode. Also I wish it enables to play mov file after exporting. In a meanwhile, you can do this:
1) export your keynote file to mov (quicktime);
2) Buy an iPhone app called Zoom Player. There is a Free version, so try that first.
3) You can play the mov file with Zoom player in a vertical mode.
This is not perfect, but you may be able to show some actions to your client.

Keynote does support a portrait mode. One way of changing the dimensions of the slides is from
Inspector > Document > slide size > set custom slide size.
From there, you can set the width and height to anything you want.

Edward, the discussion is with regards to iPhone version of Keynote. Does it play vertically if slide size is set in 640x960?

No, that's the issue. The document is 640x960 on my computer but in the iPhone it forces it into horizontal mode so it's really small.
Thanks for the video suggestion. I'll try it out.

I made up this prototype tool with Keynote. Please let me know if this is useful for someone like ourselves who develop mockups/prototypes for iOS.
I found that exporting to PDF is best and open it with Adobe PDF reader for iOS. See this video from my site:

I've had some success by doing the following:
1- I finish my screen design in portrait mode (640x960) and group all the elements.
2- I create a new presentation and make the slides on landscape mode (960x640)
3- I copy each screen group into the new landscape mode slide and then rotate it 90degrees counter clockwise with the inspector
4- I then ungroup and add hyperlinks and animations.
5 - Sync the file with Itunes
If you don't mind working with your screens rotated this might do the job.

Interactive pdfs are a nice workaround, but regular adobe acrobat viewer is non-ideal for this purpose, here is a better solution if you want to go down this road– it's a pdf viewer which is only navigable through hotlinks, so there is no viewer interface to pop up and spoil the experience.

going down the same path as others on the thread here. there are a couple of other things to look at - keynotopia and pop are both solutions that support rendering a clickable PDF on the iphone. a couple of problems with these for me:
1) neither support iphone 5 resolution - they are both iphone 4. i want to do assets 640x1136
2) neither support inline .mov's
3) netiher support the library of transitions and motions from keynote
keynote feels like the right solution for this and i'm willing to work around the landscape/portrait limitation, but when i did a custom deck that was 1136x640 keynote on the iphone 5 resized it and showed it much smaller
does anyone know the "native" or maximum rendering resolution of keynote on iphone?

One issue I have found using this method is that after rotating the mock-up screens counter-clockwise, all the text that is created in Keynote re-orients back clock-wise (i.e., becomes horizontal). I have tried changing the rotation degree but it does not seem to work. Any workarounds or suggestions?
