Great Markdown Powerpoint/Keynote-like presentation program - This Mac app is great as it provides an easy way to create presentation slides using simple Markdown language. Markdown (created years ago by Apple blogger/journalist John Gruber) has fast become an easy way to create documents and webposts using plain text with simple easy-to-see text formatting. This Deskset app takes it to a new place by allowing you to create cool slides (even with embedded photo and videos) that are easily formated in different themes that come with the app. I can’t wait to see where this developer will take this program in future upgrades. It would be cool if you can export it to Keynote or Powerpoint or even to Webpage HTML5. Right now someone else with the App can see your presentation and you can export it to PDF. Of course it has a great presentation mode so you can use it with second screens at conferences or the courtroom. Well done!!
Inflexible Design - Yes it’s great you can write in Markdown, but the themes are incredibly inflexible. It’s impossible to fit more than a few lines of text on one slide. Want to have a final slide with recommended links? It won’t fit. Not for serious presentations. And also this doesn’t support all the features of markdown, nor is there any form of documentation on the markdown you can use. Want to put a link in your presentation using standard markdown syntax? Not possible, and the only way to discover this is to waste $20.

Fonts don’t scale and images don’t always display - Some basic functionality is broken. Fonts don’t scale to fit text; text just gets truncated. It’s supposed to be making things simpler but unless you’re doing just a couple of sentences per slide you have to futz around a lot or things break. Needs work.
