Keynote VS Powerpoint

keynote vs powerpoint

I love Keynote and that’s my bottom line, but…I do have some problems with it. MS Powerpoint…boring, but easy and compatible.

So here is my quick Pros / Cons for both

Keynote Pros:

It’s freaking original and has some amazing templates that are available to really punch your presentation.

Powerpoint Pros:

It is compatible in both Mac and PC. It has been around forever and its long standing in the market place has probably been one of it’s biggest selling points.

Keynote Cons:

It doesn’t seem to play well with other programs (integration problems ). Visual Basic is not supported and that freakin’ sucks the big one for me.

Powerpoint Cons:

Humongous file size for just about any preso you could come up with. Add a little multimedia or have a lots of text and you might need another hard drive just to store your project.


So you might be wondering “well which is better?” I really love Keynote, but I’ll use an analogy that might help;

So, you have a nail infection and need an antifungal treatment. You find a site that offers 2 different antifungal nail treatments.

The first, Nail Clear, antifungal has been around for a long time and has a lot of average reviews  as well as a few good ones. The other, Zeta Clear,  has fewer reviews, but the reviews are amazing.

Nail Clear is made with a lot of nasty chemicals, but Zeta Clear is made with all natural ingredients. You can buy Nail Clear and it will help, but you won’t be wowed. If you look closer the Zeta Clear reviews people are talking about how Zeta Clear works and are happier with it overall.

I would go with Zeta Clear because people seem to be happier with it overall.

3 Easy Keynote Tips

divinefiat-keynote-tips-and-tricksNo matter what type of presentation you are putting together or planning to build we put together a short list of really easy things you can do to really punch up your project. So, with out anything else getting in the way, here we go.

#1. Try using screen shots or dingbats in place of heavy graphics.
First off, using dingbats is different. Different can be great if you are looking to make an impression. Secondly,  using screen shots is really light weight. It for sure won’t hold you back or slow you down. The first time I figured this out when I was doing a presentation for this fat burning diet pill and it’s side effects,  Phen375 Side Effects. Every thing was simple and just worked smooth.

#2. Instead of using the key board integrate your iPhone.
This one is just simple cool. Instead of reaching over the keyboard, of saying “next” to who ever is at the laptop, integrating your iPhone or iPad is simple and show a good command of the technology you are using. Did I mention it’s simply…cool?

#3. Don’t go crazy using transitions and animations.
As cool as a wild animations are, and as awesome as screen transition can be keeping it simple can be a solid way to go. Less transitions and animations keep things simple and give it a real flow, so give it a try and see how it works out.

Keep checking back to see more of the tips we’ve got for you to check out. We hope you can get some use out of what we post.
