Great Displays and depth
I use this for presenting research and historical data and like the variety of views- I paid the money for this over Timeline because of the ability to present in many different ways. This took a bit of digging through the menus, but once I figured out the colored bands option, the durations option, and others I found great ways to present 5 different events that all occurred simultaneously in an easily comprehended manner.
Sharing timelines to the web is not possible, but sharing the file and an invitation to the free viewer worked well. Export to PDF can work like screenshots (in my case that was 35 pages of PDF) or simply exporting the text reduced the file to 7 pages still with pleasant appearance.
The box for web links in the presentation is good for people wanting more information or linking to an online source for citation.
Room for improvement would be linking this to the website tikitoki and streamlining the menu system a little bit. Well recommended for flexibility and variety of options to present- picture heavy or text heavy or a balance, all work well with this.
Not worth even the discount
I tried the demo version of this desktop product TikiToki Desktop for Mac. The web versions work beautifully for me. So, I thought the desktop version would as well for presentations. It absolutely does not. After saving and reopening, several assets are missing, it does not let me add assets locally or from a cloud server. Over all this product could be very useful but was released way too soon.
