Editors' Review

Let's face it: PowerPoint presentations can be pretty boring, especially if the presenter reads directly from the slides, one by one. But with iSpring Free, you can take your PowerPoint presentations up a few notches by inserting Flash files directly into your slides and even publishing the presentations themselves as Flash videos.

If you're familiar with PowerPoint's user interface, then you'll have no trouble navigating iSpring Free as it integrates itself into the Ribbon as an extra tab. The menu options are few, but they get to the point: Publish and Insert. As its name suggests, the Publish option gives you two options, Quick Publish and Publish, to publish your entire presentation as a Flash video. The Insert option let you insert Flash files and YouTube videos into your slides. We pulled up an existing PowerPoint presentation that we had saved, found a YouTube video, and very easily inserted the clip into a slide. We were able to drag and resize the video to any place we wanted on the slide. To view the video, we simply had to start the slideshow. Sure enough, it played right there in the presentation. Using the Quick Publish feature, we were able to publish the presentation as a Flash video using the current settings. The Publish feature offered more in-depth settings for our presentation, such as naming it and selecting the slide range to be converted into Flash as well as options for starting the video presentation automatically, looping it, and adjusting slide duration and autoclick. Each feature performed without a hitch, and in no time, our presentation was converted into a Flash video that opened in our browser, which allowed us to pull the HTML code to insert into our blog. iSpring Free doesn't include any kind of help feature, but it's really not necessary.

This free add-on installs a desktop icon without permission but uninstalls cleanly. We highly recommend iSpring to all PowerPoint users.

"iSpring Free is a great tool for Free elearning and ads"

February 27, 2012  |  By Mikhail_Kokarev

 |  Version: iSpring Free 6.0.2 build 3262

Pros

I am happy to have this tool for making learning courses at my colleague. It's Free and conversion is absolute fluent. Despite it has label of Free product, it appears to be a professional valuable software.

Cons

When I try to convert huge projects it leads to malfunction. In that case I'd divide my presentation or take a paid version of iSpring Pro that has necessary options to handle big projects.

Summary

I have to admit that I'm writing on behalf of iSpring company. I've been working as a tech support engineer for several years, but I am really honest in my opinion and happy about our products' development.

First, iSpring Free doesn't have much common with new iSpring Pro. While Pro 6 moved towards AS3 conversion and new Narration Modules were added, Free is still converting AS2 movies. Second, Free version now offers SCORM conversion and don't forget, it is the product of no charge.

As for my answer to the latest iSpring Pro 6 releases, I would acclaim that it was improved way more than it's beta and first release. It already doesn't have any issues with narrations as some people said. By the way you are always welcome to ask iSpring support desk for help. Answer will not be disregarded and underestimated for sure.

"New Version is REALLY bad"

February 06, 2012  |  By heathermags

 |  Version: iSpring Free 6.0

Pros

It says it does a lot, and if it actually did all the things it claims, it would be great.

Cons

Nothing seems to work in the 6.XX versions at all. Not even simple narration. Their forum is filled with unhappy people. And support ignores you if you have a problem.

Summary

Look elsewhere for a product that actually works, or get your hands on an old version.
