"Keynote" is a part of the iWork package which was designed by Apple. This is one of the best presentation software for Mac computers. Some unique tools are offered, such as mathematical functions and "SmartBuild". There is an extensive PDF manual available and its compatibility is nearly perfect. It is one of the few software programs for Mac that includes all possible features. This clearly is its biggest advantage. There are 40 slide themes to choose from, some even in HD resolution responsible for a high quality in presentation. 25 movements are available and the image and video editor allows you to get the exact effect that you want.
Many things can be added to the pictures: static object effects, a piece of text or a clip-art graphic are only some of them. Keynote's compatibility is unbelievably wide because it is capable to open and save Microsoft files. Besides, it can save movies as MOV documents, so that anyone using Quick Time can watch them. A further advantage is that slideshows can be saved as PDF files. Additionally, Keynote's layout is easy to navigate for Mac users because everything looks familiar. To use this excellent presentation software, you have to use iWork or "Snow Leopard".
