A complete and best tool for Presentation

5 2 months ago New

Pros:

It has very good transition and animation options for texts and images, it is very friendly and intuitive, easy to learn and use. It has a library of clip art, templates, but it doesn't limit you to the default as it has tools so that we can create and design our own slides. It is very versatile and useful

Cons:

The truth is that I like it a lot, just the way it is. I wouldn't add anything to it. I like its simplicity and how easy it is to use.

Powerpoint in its fullest

5 last week New

Comments: My overall experience has been great. I always turn to MS powerpoint when a presentation needs to be done at work or university.

Pros:

Microsoft PowerPoint is a simple and almost easy-to-use software that has been developed by Microsoft. It makes the lives of most professionals like myself seamless when it comes to presentations and talks. The many features that MS Powerpoint has it easy and simple to use. The most beautiful part of this application is that the users do not need to go through extensive training to use this app. It is a self-taught application that allows users to use their imagination to come up with the most innovative ideas to help pass a colorful message across. Powerpoint is "Cross-platform", it allows can take data from different apps such as excel and customise the look and feel of this to make it interact with the presentation.

Cons:

I have not found anything specific that I personally do not like. But coming from a software development background I can safely say that no application is not without its flaws. I know that it does not use the entire page, this feature can be Improved in the near future.

More than just a great presentation tool

5 3 months ago

Comments: I really like PowerPoint flexibility. It is hands down one of the best presentation software for users planning to use 3D objects and advanced animations.

Pros:

Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular and advanced presentation tools, and there is a good reason for that. Its strengths include: (a) great functionality and animation options, (b) attractive design integrations, (c) a lot of templates, (d) ability to export a slide deck in multiple formats, such as videos

Cons:

I do not like the fact that most of its collaboration tools are only available with the online version. This aspect could be improved in the local version.

The King

5 last month New

Comments: I've been using powerpoint since I was 8 years old (1998) and it has always been my favourite software (along with paint)

Pros:

This is the king of the presentation softwares. anyone can build a powerpoint presentation but only few really know it and can unleash its full power

Cons:

the standard features even in the most recent version get you to build a very old school presentation / design. this doesn't improve user's graphic and stylistic skills .. the result is that 90% of people suck at ppt presentations. they should learn more from Canva
