Keynote is a neatly designed & smart alternative to Microsoft power-point.
I was not aware until recently that Keynote was specifically designed for Steve Jobs himself. As one of the most engaging corporate presenters of our time, this doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.
The most striking thing about Keynote is, forgive the pun, its presentation. It looks and feels beautiful both to use and to watch.
Just tap the “+” sign in the upper right hand corner and select ‘Create Presentation’. Several templates for your presentation will be presented to you. The user options for Keynote are very straight forward:
· Format brush: This allows you to change typography/text
· Insert button: Tap to add content to your slides. You can input many images from your photo album, tables, charts and several shapes from the software itself.
· Tools: This menu allows you to add different transitions to your presentation and add presenter notes – which is a nice touch.
· Play button: This plays your presentations! Just pinch the screen to go back to editing mode – nice.
· Formatting & Editing is very easy.
· The 3D graphs & charts make the look, feel & delivery of your presentations more professional.
Keynote on iPad is so easy to use & engaging that you may you may never go back to power-point on a laptop or desktop.
