Hey Google - Slide into my Dms Please

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: 10/10 I will recommend always to clients that Google is superior to Microsoft.

Pros:

I love all the customized options. Slides are super easy to make even with rudimentary tools and no knowledge.

Cons:

Sometimes laggy and the tools can mess up once or twice. Inability to save and link all together with other Google programs

Easy-to-Use Presentation Tool

4.0 last month New

Comments: Google Slides is very useful, quite user friendly, and a simple way to produce presentations across a spectrum of complexity. From interactive libraries of websites and videos to simple text-and-picture slides, Google Slides can do it all. An additional perk is the ability to make a copy of entire Slides presentations and modify them for personal use!

Pros:

The best features of Google Slides are its ease of use, customization, integration of other G Suite products, and presentation mode. The array of options that someone can use on Google Slides is staggering; it is accessible to novices and experts in technology. Using this idea, one can really dig deeply to customize slides, creating engaging and interactive presentations. Embedding other G Suite products such as Docs and Drawings is simple, and the ability to create a looping presentation from any Slides project is a plus!

Cons:

Though Google Slides are easy to approach for anyone, it is also fairly easy to get overwhelmed. The amount of options available via the toolbar is quite numerous, and this could push away users who are deterred by complicated looking interfaces and too many options.

Still Hates PPTX Files

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I've used it for some team functions and it can have some helpful qualities. The toggle to tell it to leave powerpoint files alone is a good function but it doesn't do that so the usefulness drops significantly.

Pros:

The fact that it's free is very good. Having similarities with ppt is good.

Cons:

The fact that you can toggle don't mess with ppt files and it still does, sucks.

Comments: Time and money saver! This program optimizes productivity when working as a team.

Pros:

This product is very user friendly. It completely replaces PowerPoint and is free to use. One of the best features about this program is that it allows for colleague to access,edit, and present the created slides. Your slides can be accessed at anytime by logging in and you don't have to remember to save changes as it automatically saves your work.

Cons:

No complaints! I have encountered no drawbacks with this program during my years of use.
