Blows PowerPoint Away !


I present alot, and people always ask why my presentations (PowerPoints) look great. I work in Microsoft Office environment but use keynote at home and on the web (iCloud) to make my presentations. Most of the time I am required to convert them into PowerPoint files for distributing on our IntraNet. They translate seamlessly and look amazing. Good new features in the current version with Keynote Live and collaborations.

Useful App


This is a very useful app for mac because, People with windows 8 or any other computer normally would use microsoft. But In apple, Like mine. I find it hard because of this, I use This amazing app. It allows you to create some effects and amazing fonts. I absolutely love it. It’s not too simple and not too hard, some people manage to find other apps to complicated and very basic. I feel that this is a perfect app for apple users :D
Normally Other people think this is not very useful, And I basically think that they’re crazy! I mean, You’ve got something to use and it has many features.
This is ALL my opinions but I think you should give it a 5 star rating because of how you can actually use it properly because for beginners, like me. I find it very simple to just click buttons. Unlike other apps, you have to do all the instructions and you get very anxious and frustrated.
I love your app!
Thank you so much for making this..

Problems abound


Whilst there are improvements in the UI, there are serious bugs that need to be resolved. Generating a pdf using the print window or the file > export function results in an inaccurate reproduction. Superscripts and subscripts in tables are missing in the pdf! In other words pdfs do not appear as they do in the slide.

The application lags. 6.0 and 6.1 would reliably crash when typing with any significant speed into a slide. This has been resolved in 6.2.

6.0 and 6.1 had a feature that allowed several customizable text box styles to be set and any style could be dragged and dropped into position. This was a nice improvement on Keynote 5. Now with keynote 6.2 that feature has been removed and the text box works as it did in Keynote 5 with the difference that now when you try to alter the default text box style the application hangs. This happens every time you do this.
