    Pros: 

    Blown away by simplicity of product and really good FTUX

    Cons: 

    Haven't used enough to figure this out

    I've just recreated previously used decks on it, so I haven't actually put it to the test of helping me create a new deck, but will be looking forward to doing so shortly.

    Kenny Goldman has used this product for one week.

    Pros: 

    Beautiful.AI is the best presentation tool you're not using right now

    Cons: 

    A few minor UX quibbles but it does everything I would want.

    As a line of business manager and occasional conference speaker I've used every presentation tool out there. Powerpoint, Keynote, Slides.com/Slidesjs, Prezi, you name it. Beautiful.AI is the only one that's made me immediately productive and happy with the results every time. If you've ever found yourself endlessly tapping the right arrow key in Powerpoint to get two elements to line up, give Beautiful.AI a try.

    James Wrubel has used this product for one month.

Thanks for checking out Beautiful.AI! I've built a bunch of content authoring tools in the past (including SlideRocket) and finally realized that building tools that required design skills from it's users wasn't serving the needs of most people who don't want to spend their time aligning shapes and picking font sizes or hiring a professional designer to help. So we created Beautiful.AI so that everyone could have beautiful and effective presentations easily and quickly. Beautiful.AI uses AI expert systems and heuristics to provide dozens of smart templates that adapt their layout and styles to your content in realtime. We think it's a dramatic improvement over traditional authoring tools like Powerpoint and let's you spend your time focused on what you want to say in a presentation - not how to make it look good. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!

@mitchgrasso Really nice work, guys! I'm a Slidebean AND HaikuDeck user and Beautiful.AI still brings something fresh and new to the table. Looking forward to giving this a spin with a presentation I recently created in one of the aforementioned tools to see how it does in "full auto." :)

I really dig Beautiful AI. I think with more polish and features this product will be used by many companies. It just feels like an obvious choice cause we all want the same things: - One place where company presentations can live, so people on enterprise teams can reference them. - Easy to make presentations, easy to share presentations. - Worry less about falling out of brand guidelines, worry more about what you are making. I can't wait to see how this product grows! Cheers and thanks for launching it.

It is good, but why you call it AI. Which part of it AI?

@mockupzone Hey Mucahit, We are currently using expert systems and heuristics (kinda old school AI) to make automatic layout decisions that adapt to your content. We also use some image analysis to automatically crop your images to the most interesting part depending on the crop size. While we currently aren't using machine-learning yet, we are working on features to automatically analyze your presentation to point out places where things could potentially be improved as well as helping you structure your story or pitch. For more on our thinking behind our evolution of Design.AI, check out this blog post: https://blog.beautiful.ai/designai thanks!

I can see how this would be useful for quick presentations (I love the fact that you can pick your own theme colors and have a nice variety of slide layouts!) but I probably wouldn't use it for a more personalized, branded presentation. I'm just testing creating an investor deck using Beautiful.AI vs. a Keynote template I bought for $15. It is a very good theme and it took me a while to find one that answers most of my needs (funnily enough, I didn't find it under "startup deck" or "business plan" – I sort of accidentally found it in the "marketing" category). So, here is a quick comparison: 1. Beautiful.AI is definitely easier to use if you don't have much experience with Keynote (I only have some). Setting theme colors and making sure everything is in order (the app does it for you) is easy peasy. 2. It's quicker to find a good enough slide template on Beautiful.AI but it's not easy to find all of the slides you need and the existing templates are kind of restrictive for some purposes. 3. Adjusting everything on Keynote, when you're not a pro, is a bit of a pain. But at least you can control every little bit of your presentation (even if you have to spend a lot of time on it and google some options up... but hey, you live you learn). And you can add your logo on every slide ;). 4. It's much probably easier to collaborate with others on one presentation and make sure the layout stays consistent throughout. Haven't tested this option yet but I can see a lot of potential uses with the collaborative aspect in mind. 5. No idea about the costs... I'm assuming it will have to cost something to use Beautiful.AI at some point? :) For now, it's free, which is definitely a plus ;). I can definitely see how Beautiful.AI could be used for building templates for the entire organization, to make sure our external communication is consistent, no matter the level of Keynote/PowerPoint skill or sense of aesthetics of a team member. I would for sure use such a tool for our sales presentations (if they needed to be changed around a lot), for example. Or internal presentations, for that matter. For our investor deck though, this time around, I'll probably stick to a Keynote template.

@jrwallenberg You're welcome! FYI – showed Beautiful.AI to my team of marketing/sales non-designers and they quite love it :)

@rysanna Hey Anna, thanks a ton for your detailed feedback! I wanted to you know we'll be adding a lot more templates very soon and we'd love to hear what you or others feel is missing. Regarding pricing, we will have a premium tier at some point but it's our goal that most if not all of the features that are available now continue to be free forever. We may decide to limit the number of presentations you can create and/or add premium features and templates but anything you create in the tool today will always be available to you at no charge.
