    "Creates a big problem for existing Keynote users"

    November 24, 2013   |   By waterloom

    Version: Apple Keynote 6.0.1

    Pros

    As with all other version of Keynote, this one does the job elegantly. It is a clear alternative to PowerPoint and I have used it for years--since it began. This version now utilizes the Cloud and allows users to open files from multiple devices easily (although I've always been able to do this with DropBox). Apple has changed some of the ways of doing things, but they are all there, I think.

    Cons

    This version has some fundamental changes in the way things are done. I have trouble finding simple things, like the list of master slides, for example. But far worse, none of my existing Keynote presentations will now open unless I first open them in Keynote '09 and then save them to the new version. I have hundreds of presentations, so this is a major pain--especially since my app cleaner removed the '09 version of iWork when I upgraded. So beware: save your older version of Keynote (and I assume the rest of your iWork apps). You will need them unless Apple fixes this problem.

    Summary

    Good, dependable Keynote, but with a major issue: you can't open older Keynote files with this version!!!

    "Very easy to use and very stable."

    October 22, 2010   |   By Richard W. Mueller

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Drag and drop video clips onto the slide.
    Cool transitions.

    Cons

    When I change the screen resolution to fill the screen of my computer, the size of the working aea of the slide increases and I can't see it all at once.

    Summary

    I was having problems with PowerPoint - it would suddenly quit while playing embedded videos. Keynote works just fine doing this. Also, Keynote does not lose links to videos when you move it from one computer to another.

    "Eecellent for the average user"

    October 03, 2010   |   By CMC-1

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Keynote is easy to use ... works with text, diagrams/vision and can be enhanced by audio ... with iTunes linked

    Cons

    It would help to have 'hot spots' and links for tertiary testing ... arrows to negotiate fw/back with data options to process MCQ : TrueFalse Q's to show success to be stored on a database!

    Summary

    For day to day use Keynote is great ... much more compressed and easy to use than Powerpoint ... needs the kind of range of option that were available with HyoerCard in years gone by

    "Argghhhh still no audio support"

    April 26, 2006   |   By explorz12

    Version: Apple Keynote 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I can't believe that Apple STILL has not implemented the ability to start audio with a specific slide and end the audio a specific number of slides later. This is a standard with Powerpoint. I LOVE Keynote. So much better than powerpoint, but c'mon apple - people need the ability to control audio if they are going to give great presentations. Currently I have to play audio seperately through my ipod and it is not a smooth operation. All you can do with Keynote is to play a song all the way through when you start the show. A bit lame!

    "My Experience"

    April 26, 2006   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Apple Keynote 3.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I really enjoy using keynote, and prefer it to Office... It is much more elegant and easier to use once you figure it out.

    To the other poster about the "upgrade policy" -- get with it buddy, Microsoft updates office roughly every year-- this full-point upgrade will cost you as well... but the minor point updates are free.

    You are buying a specific version, it works-- continue using it.

    "Keynote 3.0 is simply terrific!"

    January 26, 2006   |   By spollak

    Version: Apple Keynote 3.0.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Keynote lacks some features that I'd like. But what it has is done with style and class. I gave up on PowerPoint with Keynote 2.0 and haven't looked back since. Keynote a terrific application with great potential.

    As a lifelong Mac user, I only hope that Apple keeps up the good work. I recall MacDraw, MacProject and other Apple developed software that were innovative in their day, but their development languished. I hope that Keynote (and Pages) continue to evolve at a reasonable pace.

    "1.01 GB for Standard Install !! ?? !!"

    January 20, 2006   |   By Mil Mascaras

    Version: Apple Keynote 3.0.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Cool looking update.
    Some new variations on the themes.
    Still noticing all the newness.
    Had 1 freeze needing a force quit when trying to recreate a previous 2.0.2 project as a test, but the 2nd time it worked (on expertly maintaned mac)

    ... BUT.. When you install this application, it is 1.01 GB in size.
    That is over 5 times larger than the previous version.

    HOLY SMOKES..

    Does this qualify as B L O A T E D ??

    "Excellent update"

    January 19, 2006   |   By RobertPater

    Version: Apple Keynote 3.0.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I make presentations as a large part of my job. While I've been using Keynote since version 1.0, it has continued to have shortcomings when compared to the then-out version of Powerpoint.

    No more. I made a conference presentation today with Keynote 3. In addition to new transitions and the ability to embed builds into any slide (very useful), there are 3 other new features I really like:
    â?¢ Light Table view (where you can view entire presentation and rearrange slide order, a la Powerpoint)
    â?¢ ability to turn any text into bulleted text - extremely useful
    â?¢ the "B" key glitch was fixed (in previous versions of Keynote, after applying B key to black out the screen in presentation mode result in faulty animatations when trying to continue the presentation - no longer a problem. I use an RF remote to selectively blank out the screen; now works great.

    I have 2 full-day seminars to present next week, been working in Keynote 3 and, to date, it's been a joy. Admittedly, I just received this 4 days ago, but have had a chance to put it through some paces.

    To date, highly recommended.

    "Apple, please don't foresake Keynote"

    December 11, 2005   |   By spollak

    Version: Apple Keynote 2.0.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Apple, please don't foresake Keynote.

    It's a great program so far, but still lacks important features. It's far better than PowerPoint in many respects and is one reason I continue to by Macintosh computers. However, I'm concerned that Apple will let it wane as it has done with many great programs in the past.
