A great animation cloud-based software, but kinda expensive

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Excellent.

Pros:

The variety of templates is one of the great features. So, I don't have to create a similar video every time; Each video is unique.

Cons:

Well, the pricing. It is super high. Also, faced few issues with the Arabic language during the free trial. Could be fixed by now tho.

Alternatives Considered: Vyond

Reasons for Choosing PowToon: I was still learning animation, so I was trying too many tools like vyond, and animaker.

Switched From: Animaker

Powtoons is Amazing

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have created dozens of videos for internal comms, advertising, recruiting and training. It has made my life so easy and with great reward and outcome.

Pros:

This is a super simple app to create fun and vibrant communications pieces either with cartoons or video.

Cons:

I think customer service could be much better. I don't think I've ever gotten ahold of a live person.

Alternatives Considered: Filmora

Reasons for Choosing PowToon: I didn't exactly make a total switch because I still need to edit some video before dropping it in to Powtoons, but the functionality of Powtoons and its ability to drag and drop anything into the video at any time is so cool. And it has a huge database of photos, video, and other tidbits.

Pathetic Teacher/Student Tier

1.0 last month New

Comments: I exported a Powtoon that was stripped and looked embarrassing. The information should be clear what templates are pro and how unseemly and amateurish a video will be if they are removed. I now see that it is a ploy so you will export and not be able to receive a refund. This product is subpar and the fee was a waste of money. I expected quality for my money but could have gotten better abilities and service from a free product. The push to export without features is highly manipulative and unethical. I will inform everyone I know to seek their better software for educational uses. Including my employer who purchased Enterprise software.

Pros:

It was unethical, manipulative , trash. It asks you to export a stripped unusable video so that you cannot get a refund when this pathetic software creates subpar digital videos.

Cons:

The stripped videos it produces are an embarrassment and having a tier for education is a waste of money and no one should use it.

5.0 last year

Comments: I save a lot of time and effort doing slides on this software and looks so professional!

Pros:

I don't need to have programming skill to make animations and professional videos, is easy and instinctive to use.

I wish there were more avatars and more variety of animations and the option to adjust and share at tiktok.

Alternatives Considered: Microsoft PowerPoint
