What's New in Version 6.5.3
This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes.
What did Apple do?
I’ve used Keynote for years. I’ve done at least 100 professional lectures using Keynote. Some of my lectures are as long as 16 hours long. During the move to the new version it converted my older presentations to the new format and I lost an incredible amount of information, it reformatted things, and certain embedded file types won’t work anymore.
Now, with the most recent update, I can no longer enter any text onto slides. The program is non-functional. Really Apple? I’ve bought new product on a recurrent basis, and have been an Apple shareholder on and off since Steve Jobs came back to Apple in 1997, and frankly the horrible quality of this product is ridiculous. If you can’t make a product that works you should have let us continue using the older version of Keynote that actually worked and didn’t destroy our work.
I have refused, so far, to ugrade to the new operating system. Even though I know it will “upgrade” my Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. Why have I refused one might ask? Because the fine folks at Apple have insisted on dumbing down the software in order that the lowest common user can use it without freaking out over all the awesome options. I get that. In a way I do get it. However, when Apple deliberately makes it incompatible to use a .key created in the current version of Keynote in the older Keynote unless I “upgrade to the new version, that just ticks me off. I’ve been an Apple fan for quite awhile. Thanks to this and other issues I am fast becoming disillusioned with the whole Apple experience.
Putting iOS-compatibility first is Apples greatest blunder. Ever.
Apple's ongoing policy of stripping desktop and OS appearance and functionality to match mobile devices first is a dead-end strategy. Palm Desktop got it right from the get-go: favor the Desktop environment and translate the most useful features to the handheld. If HP hadn't ditched Palm, millions of people would still be using it.
Apple: the negative and neutral reviews of your recent software (Yosemite, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Final Cut Pro) far outnumber the positive ones: shouldn't that tell you something? It would… if you were actually listening.
