Ratings and Reviews
A Magical Palette for Creativity
I have observed that many folks view Keynote as simply an office tool. Indeed, I have made several conventional presentations as an Infection Control Specialist, both before retirement and for Home School children. But Keynote is so much more! Think of Keynote as a painters palette upon which you can gather together many creative elements into a work of art. What are these elements? They might include, photographs, video, music and sound effects, animation, graphic objects, and writing. Each element can interact with one another, for example merge a still photo with an animation. Or perhaps, a video can take center stage surrounded by animation and text. Perhaps, you have the video look like it is playing on a TV set to outdoor movie screen. Or perhaps combine an animation with a sound effect, or combine a musical background with original artwork. Move and time each element to demonstrate your creativity. When your living work of art is complete, you can convert it all to a video which you can share.
Basic Features Missing
As others have stated, dragging to select would be so much more efficient. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to select and reselect because of multiple layers of objects...and it just never seems to work properly. I instinctively keep trying to use my Apple Pencil to work with, only to scribble all over my work. Also, why is it that when I group objects together, I can’t link them? For example, I have font on top of a shape and want to link them both to another slide, so I grouped them. I have to link both the text and the shape in order for this to work? I’ve probably spent double the time on my project than necessary if the app just offered basic functions. It’s also incredibly frustrating that when I zoom, the toolbar blocks the top of my slide completely, so the only way I’m able to navigate small shapes at the top of my slide is to be zoomed out...but I can’t use my Apple Pencil to navigate the elements of my slide in place of my fingers!
App Has Stopped Working
This app was good until it simply stopped working. I have created many presentations that required a lot of research for use in my teaching. For almost a year now, the app will not even show all of my presentations and it definitely will not let me open them. I had hoped that all was resolved with the last IOS update. It actually worked...for about a day. It is now back to the non-working mode. I have called Apple, I have visited Apple. No one has a reason or a solution. Thankfully, I was wise enough to at least screen shot my presentations on the DAY that it started working again. At least I can see the information I had used to create my presentations. The same thing has happened with my Pages app. This is highly disappointing and completely unacceptable from Apple. Maybe it would be more understandable if the apps were free, but they are not. They are quite expensive compared to other apps.
