PowerPoint is my go to app for all things that need to be presented, ie...business cards, flyers, brochures, pamphlets, presentations, infocharts etc...

Pros

PowerPoint is one of the pioneer apps that simplified the concept of creating presentations slides - but along the way, various features and functions were added making it a one stop shop for all Marketeers.

Cons

We don't give PowerPoint's capabilities enough credit as we do other apps within the Microsoft Suite collection. Know that it can do more than what we know it to be.

My overall experience has been great. I always turn to MS powerpoint when a presentation needs to be done at work or university.

Pros

Microsoft PowerPoint is a simple and almost easy-to-use software that has been developed by Microsoft. It makes the lives of most professionals like myself seamless when it comes to presentations and talks. The many features that MS Powerpoint has it easy and simple to use. The most beautiful part of this application is that the users do not need to go through extensive training to use this app. It is a self-taught application that allows users to use their imagination to come up with the most innovative ideas to help pass a colorful message across. Powerpoint is "Cross-platform", it allows can take data from different apps such as excel and customise the look and feel of this to make it interact with the presentation.

Cons

I have not found anything specific that I personally do not like. But coming from a software development background I can safely say that no application is not without its flaws. I know that it does not use the entire page, this feature can be Improved in the near future.

I used this software many times to create several presentations for work etc.
During my many years of use of this product, I was able to master the various tools put in place and really take the software in hand. In addition, this software supports attachments, there is never a zoucis file corruption etc. It requires a little control, but once you are comfortable with it, you are capable of great things.

Pros

Benefits : The Powerpoint software is simple to use, easy to understand to create presentations with playful interfaces. This software is dominant on the market, and is much superior to its conccurents by its polyvalences but also by the large number of tools made available.
Users can create slideshows, presentations online, by inserting photos or various documents, which gives them truly unique slides.

Cons

Disavantages : Like all Microsoft software, Powerpoint is quite complex when you want to make the most of its features. It could be more playful, easier to understand as a whole in order to be able to use it in the best way. It is absolutely not good to create original illustrations, you should create them in suitable software ( photoshop, etc...) and then import them in Powerpoint.
