Comments from some of those who selected Keynote as one of their Top Tools 

for making presentations that can be used in different ways  Natale Raeber 2013
for telling stories to understand  Clark Quinn 2013

  • “I use Keynote for presentations. I think it works very intuitive, and the results look more professional than PowerPoint. When necessary I’ll convert the presentations to PowerPoint or straight to SlideShare. I used to convert them ready for iPod of iPhone, but I stopped doing that. Students didn’t use them.” Jeroen Bottema
  • “Oooh-la-la! Stunning graphics, transitions and exports to clickable movie files, what more could you ask for in presentation software? I post my completed shows on Slideshare, but the live presentations take full advantage of this polished presentation powerhouse.”  Rodd Lucier
  • “Previously I used OpenOffice but after switching from Linux to Mac OS X it became apparent that there is no match for Keynote if you want to create incredible visual journeys rather than endless boring lists of bullet-points. My audience loves it”  Teemu Arina
  • “Apple’s presentation software is far more flexible and media-friendly than PowerPoint. I do almost everything in Keynote in my job as a professor.”  Robert Talbert
