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.

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.

It is obviously delightful experience for all to workwith Microsoft PowerPoint from our childhood, but if you want to excel in professional presentation, you should know other presentation tools in the market to equip yourself with more features of presentation.

Pros

The best thing about Microsoft PowerPoint is it's familiarity, you don't have to spend lot of time in training the new recruits on Micrsoft PowerPoint. Everyone who knows little about presentation works surely knows this tool. It is the learning room for great presentations for everyone. It is highly user-friendly, we are familiar with every options present in the application. Being a common platform for presentation and in the market for long-time, it is a natural process to work with Microsoft PowerPoint.

Cons

It is a commoner platform, if you want to create a presentation of particular high content work with highly customizable templates, we have to use alternatives. It lacks good media of library and enough customizable features.
