@greaterthan1000 I can’t think of anything better than Keynote. I have used several other options and always come back to it. Easy to use, you can create anything you can think of, flexible... you can create some truly wonderful presentations with it
@greaterthan1000 @apogeefreak Keynote is a good one. For fancy presentations I use prezi, but for everything else keynote is my go to.
@greaterthan1000 I use Prezi. Just love the dynamism and ease! Have you tried it yet?
@vshvrdhn I have. I like how Prezi looks. I think they were ahead of the curve several years ago but they lack some of the additional features other platforms now have. Polling and the ability to have the audience respond are extras that I have now come to expect. Thanks for the recommendation!
@greaterthan1000 @vshvrdhn It's missing some basic text formatting functions. My clients like the animation, but they still want the kind of text formatting found in PowerPoint. Also, it's built on Flash.
@greaterthan1000 Here are my 2 greatest tools : http://www.slides.com, http://www.beautiful.ai . First one is a very intuitive&simple tool for designing, the second is AI-powered with loads of template to setup your slides. I'd go for the first one if you like to customize more, the 2nd one if you want to be really quick.
@yohan_attal thanks. I just checked both out and will dig deeper. Both look great, I have heard good things about beautiful ai.
@greaterthan1000 Gor for Ludus. Web tool with plenty of nice new features at each new release https://www.producthunt.com/post...
@greaterthan1000 beautiful.ai is fantastic ! i came across this too recently on Product Hunt and i've used it for many projects (personal + school) it's very easy to use, saves you precious time for charts and all that stuff, you can share links or export your project directly to PDF or PPT or embed your presentation in a website. Oh and it's all free !
@greaterthan1000 Have you looked at Paste by FiftyThree? Designed to work with Slack. https://www.producthunt.com/post...
@greaterthan1000 https://imginators.com Imaginators will help you create interactive presentations that engage your audience.
Simple, practical and beautifully objective. I use Deckset for Mac Here. https://www.decksetapp.com/
@lyondhur I am trying Deckset for a preso. Very cool.
@greaterthan1000 I am using beautiful.ai on a new presentation, but I have only a few hours of experience with it.
@greaterthan1000 Actually GSlides is a great tool
@greaterthan1000 I've been using Canva for years: https://www.canva.com. Lots of great templates for presentation plus lots of layouts for every other form of print and digital marketing pieces. I love the new collaboration features, too. It really is one of my favorite tools.

@greaterthan1000 I really love Deckset (https://www.decksetapp.com/) . You can write your presentation in markdown, which is suuuuper fast and then choose from a bunch of different themes. You have presenter notes and some cool other features. Like PDF export. The only downside is, that you need deckset installed to present your slides. So no online version.

@greaterthan1000 there are many, but i suggest you to look at digitalwale.com, they have a ppt template section with some amazing designs ready to download and which are 100% editable too.

@greaterthan1000 I'm a familiar user of most of these tools. But, in a commercial use case, I like to know how my recipient is responding to my deck/pitch. So I recommend Clearslide or Slidebean.

@george_gonzalez_rivas do you have a link to clearslide?
Dropbox Paper for sure. From start to finish the best tool to create and present stuff.
@greaterthan1000 Open https://www.fashiontiy.com. An emerging B2B mobile commerce platform. They help small wholesalers effectively reduce procurement costs and reduce the number of middlemen.
@greaterthan1000 bautiful.ai -> AI powered presentations.
@greaterthan1000 I usually keep it simple and opt for Keynote. but I want to do something fancy I design my slides in Adobe Illustrator or Sketch and use those images. It's more for "Wow" effect rather than time saving. The idea is to deliver your message.
