Apple Keynote Presentation Software


As a professional in an academic setting, I prepare and give many talks on a regular basis.  For years I relied upon Microsoft’s PowerPoint, but was ready to try Apple’s presentation software- Keynote- when it debuted in 2005 as part of the iWork productivity suite.  I have never looked back.

Maybe it is the geek in me, but I really like making presentations, and Keynote makes the process both fun and easy.  With very little effort, you can prepare a presentation that is highly polished and is superior in appearance and execution to anything that you could do with PowerPoint.  Keynote excels and exceeds PowerPoint in almost every respect.

As the Mac adoption rate has accelerated since the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, I have seen more interest from my PC friends and colleagues in giving Keynote a try.  Although it is an easy program to use, I have learned some “beyond the basics” through practice and experimentation with the software.  After routinely being asked “How did you do that?”, I have decided to post some tips about getting the most out of Keynote on this blog.  I know that there are many other Keynote users out there, so I look forward to learning some things from you as well!
