About Keynote

Keynote is a presentation software that allows users to create, edit, and manage multimedia presentations. It includes a wide range of graphics and editing tools that enables users to add charts, edit pictures, and integrate cinematic effects into slides. Users can also create customized slides using background photos and predefined customizable themes.

Keynote allows teams to embed animated objects and live video feeds into slides. It offers various transition options such as textures, color gradients, and photos. The built-in collaboration feature allows teams to work on projects together in real-time and share ideas and comments via a unified platform. Other features include custom captions and titles, math equations, reading mode, image gallery, presentation export, and more.
Keynote includes a built-in rehearse mode that displays notes and slides in one view, allowing users to practice presentation and speaking skills. Users can also play videos in slides, modify position, size, and rotation, and fade between slides to engage with the audience.

I have been using Keynote since 2005. The adaptation period (coming form PowerPoint) was about 3 weeks.
Never looked back.
Each time I have to use PowerPoint because a client want to use the presentation on a PC reminds me how awful PP is compare to Keynote.
Keynote is a professional presentation software and anybody I know who has used it does not want to go back to Powerpoint

Pros

Very sophisticated yet easy to use
User interface is vastly superior to Powerpoint
Easily convertible to Ppt format if required.
Compatible with ppt format
Super animations
Fully compatible with the rest of the Apple suite
Using Keynote with a projector is a breeze!

Cons

File size is surprisingly high.
Some bullet are not reproduced adequately when importing to ppt format
Imported files for ppt format sometimes have to be rearranged
Font compatibility between ppt files

Just a Little Bit Nicer Than the Others

Keynote helps me look more professional than my solopreneur operation would naturally allow. I can quickly turn out great looking pieces of content. Keynote appears to be less known or used which is to my advantage because I often get compliments and requests to know what I used that leads to more client engagement.

Pros

The templates are top notch and make it really easy and intuitive to put together a classy, high quality presentation easily. As most of my work world moved to Zoom (and is planning to stay), being able to quickly create backgrounds, visual cueing and information sharing has been critical. There are lots of slide presentation apps but Keynote's taste and layout suggestions are just a bit nicer. I consistently get feedback and requests for "tips" about how I got my slides to look so good.

Cons

Converting Keynote slides into Google Slides takes a couple of steps to work around. You can covert directly in app to PowerPoint, .pdf, .gifs, etc but not Slides yet, which is the most common request from my end users.

Reviewed on 20/05/2022

Pros

I'm a big fan of Keynote. I think it's the easiest application to create beautiful presentations.
It has a lot of features that can make my life easier. For example, Keynote allows me to embed videos and photos into my slides. I can even record myself presenting the slide show and then, I can send the link to my clients.

Cons

Native templates are a bit poor, but you can find awesome ones on the net.

Easy and elegant presentations

Reviewed on 15/06/2022

Pros

I have not used a lot of Keynote, but from my short experience I can say that it is really a great program as it is very simple to use but above all it allows you to make very beautiful presentations in a short time. A really effective tool

Cons

In my opinion it has nothing to improve, I have always found myself very well
