Much to my personal delight Apple has finally revamped it’s presentation app Keynote! During yesterdays Keynote address, Apple’s Senior VP Eddy Cue announced a complete redesign of iWork apps for desktop including the beloved presentation design app Keynote. Apple’s presentation software has been overdue for a major update and I will be as bold as say that some of the new features are game changers when it comes to presentation design and development.
Up until now when compared to Microsoft PowerPoint, Keynote lacked in master slide and consistency control when it came to producing presentation documents.
Having created quite a few RFP documents for clients using Keynote in the past few months I started to develop a deeper appreciation for PowerPoint and the control it offers on large scale multi page documents. Typically inDesign makes more sense for these types of files but inDesign’s reliance on use of designers for edits make it a less than fluid choice for fast production and collaboration.
