Lots to like about KeyNote but...


One thing that is extremely annoying is that this app is missing the “Save AS” feature. Apparently the people writing this app are not familiar with this concept. I use keynote every week to do my Sunday School lesson for my class. It has a lot of things that I like but I always open the previous week’s lesson and update everything and then I want to Save As - as I have been able to do in every other app on Macs since the original Word and Excel apps from the 1980s. The writers of this app think that I should think of it differently and first open it, then remember to “duplicate” it and then Rename it. That is a far less intuitive way to work and does not make sense - at all. Maybe someone somewhere in Apple will read this and have an “Opps” monent and restore this functionality.

Worked very well with Power Point allowing edits changes

Working superbly

Worked very well with Power Point allowing edits changes. Day one, I rated it 5 stars. After I use it for some projects, I imagine in 2-4 months, if it still performs the same, I need to rate it tops, 6 stars. I do not have Power Point software, but when I opened a Power Point, it worked and this software allows me to even create various Power Point presentations. I love it and this was a free dowload. Love my APPLE MacBook Pro and love the software. I lost my Power Point which came with my new APPLE years ago, my fault, I did not take care of my computer. I had it fixed at Microcenter, but lost Power Point software. I dowloaded this Key Note, software, sure it took a few hours, but now I have Power Point again, just named Key Note. Very nice!

Great Design Parity Features… Collaboration Still an (Enterprise) Mess


Pan and zoom was a delightful surprise and the icon libraries are great too… but it still falls flat on collaboration. Until you can collaborate on a third party serice (Google Drive, Box, Dropbox) – Keynote will always be an enterprise joke.

iCloud Drive and the Apple ID (which are things that Apple does not allow to be managed by a business) are the root reasons why this will never be a business friendly product. Document ownership is a joke (you can’t transfer ownership nor can collaborators add people) and your business confidential documents (probably) live on your PERSONAL Apple ID (because, what person on a business issued laptop uses a business managed Apple ID/iCloud account which forces folks to have all of their contacts not be in sync with their phones – which is possible but who does that?) which is a huge security risk for any business.
