About Keynote

Keynote is a presentation software that allows users to create, edit, and manage multimedia presentations. It includes a wide range of graphics and editing tools that enables users to add charts, edit pictures, and integrate cinematic effects into slides. Users can also create customized slides using background photos and predefined customizable themes.

Keynote allows teams to embed animated objects and live video feeds into slides. It offers various transition options such as textures, color gradients, and photos. The built-in collaboration feature allows teams to work on projects together in real-time and share ideas and comments via a unified platform. Other features include custom captions and titles, math equations, reading mode, image gallery, presentation export, and more.
Keynote includes a built-in rehearse mode that displays notes and slides in one view, allowing users to practice presentation and speaking skills. Users can also play videos in slides, modify position, size, and rotation, and fade between slides to engage with the audience.

If you don't have any other option, then this is pretty good. But if you can afford a better presentation software, then it's a no-brainer. Competitors have larger feature sets and more usable UIs.

Pros

The UI is minimal and clean, it has good export/import funciontalities. It's relatively easy to operate.

Cons

Templates are not updated, they need to be versioned, which leads to mismateches in styles of presentations within the company. The editor UI is sometimes difficult to use.

I have been using Keynote since 2005. The adaptation period (coming form PowerPoint) was about 3 weeks.
Never looked back.
Each time I have to use PowerPoint because a client want to use the presentation on a PC reminds me how awful PP is compare to Keynote.
Keynote is a professional presentation software and anybody I know who has used it does not want to go back to Powerpoint

Pros

Very sophisticated yet easy to use
User interface is vastly superior to Powerpoint
Easily convertible to Ppt format if required.
Compatible with ppt format
Super animations
Fully compatible with the rest of the Apple suite
Using Keynote with a projector is a breeze!

Cons

File size is surprisingly high.
Some bullet are not reproduced adequately when importing to ppt format
Imported files for ppt format sometimes have to be rearranged
Font compatibility between ppt files

Great. As an Apple user I love being able to use an iPad, iPhone or Macbook to edit my files. The files are reliable and look really great for presentations or lessons that I give.

Pros

This software utilizes integration with the cloud, for easy access and editing from anywhere. It is very comparable to Powerpoint, just takes a little getting used to where everything is. I think some features work better in Keynote while others are better in Powerpoint.

Cons

Getting used to a different interface was a minor annoyance and worth it. The good news is Numbers, Keynote and Pages are very similar in their tool layouts, so learn one and you learn them all, to an extent.

I can create amazing documents through Keynote, but I need much storage on my computer and in my iCloud.

Pros

This is the only software I know that allows the creation of such beautiful documents, with several features available to use creativity and leave an impeccable design in my creations. In addition, through it, I can also share documents and make changes with other people.

Cons

Unfortunately, Keynote uses a lot of storage, which is a big downside, making my iCloud more expensive as a result. Another negative point is that it is a limited-use software since only Apple users can enjoy it, making it difficult to share files.
