Acrobat gives a silly hand for a cursor and no laser pointer or other annotation tools that would be useful during presentation. I would consider payware if the options are right. If it could work on the iPad, even better.

I'd guess it isn't supported since it most likely uses PDFKit but you might try Présentation, <http://iihm.imag.fr/blanch/software/osx-presentation/>, which gives a nice interface for beamer presentations.

Good Luck,
