Customer Reviews

I don’t see the problem…

I have just started usinng the newest version of Apple’s Keynote and I have read the most recent reviews. I didn’t experience any of the issues that most of the people who provided negative reviews for this upgrade, however meny of those reviews seem to be focused on Backward compatibility Not a issue for me. What I did experience was a well designed app that was intuitive enough for a first time user to quickly produce a rocking presentation that went beyond anything I was expecting I could create using this app. I think Keynote compares favorably to the power point building programs offered on the net such as Google Docs and Slide Rocket. It is light years beyond what is offered by anything on the PC side that is for sure. As a graphic designer it is important that my presentations look clean and sophicated without spending hours digging through a bunch of menus and windows. I was able to simply drag and drop the photos I needed into the template frames or those I created for myself. As a knowledgable user I was able to easily find the tools I needed to make my template choice look both fresh and unique. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.

It could be worse but it really could be much better

After the El Capitan update I have noticed a welcome feature: Keynote no longer crashes while editing. Thank you!
But: In outline mode it is now really, really, really sluggish. It is "click and wait" all the way. Obvious features are still missing. Obvious shortcuts are still absent. Apple: I create my presentations, about 2 a week, on a computer, not a tablet. No matter how neat iPads are, it is not the platform I would create presentations with. Please, get that through your heads. Even if I was to edit my presentations through the iPad, I would still like to see the desktop version to have the higher creative and convenience features that once were standard. I don’t mind tablet software that just works different. I am hoping you will finally return to desktop software that just works.
I continue to hope that someone reviews the software at Apple and finally decides that iWorks 08 was a high water mark that Apple needs to returned to. Your customers have told you that for a few years now. Please, listen.

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.
