Version 6.5
Review by Lazeh

Saying Bye To PowerPoint - Following in the footsteps with Pages comes another great addition to the iWork suite, Keynote. If you use PowerPoint, you will not be disappointed by using Keynote. After using PowerPoint since version 2003 through the latest 2013, I dumped it. Microsoft doesn’t seem to get UI design and putting the features you need up front and clutters it all up in the “ribbon” interface, which I have found is more confusing to use, not just for me, but others too. Keynote brings all the features I need for my presentation creation forward. Not too mention some awesome animations and options to make it professional when need be, or fun and casual too. The interface is clean and neat, not to mention organized, and allows you to focus on your project and not be overwhelmed by the amount of options with PowerPoints ribbon in your face, which can be collapsed, but that just doesn’t cut it. The ability to export ppt and pptx (and others) format with Keynote is great too if I need to share my presentation. Thanks for making Keynote all I need for my presentations. Superb product!

Version 6.1
Review by Lt. O'Whora

So much worse than previous version - I’ve been using Keynote from the very first version and each new version has been an improvment over the last. Sadly that is no longer true with this version. Version 6.1 is a major step backwards. This latest version emphasizes a clean, uncluttered interface over functionality. Unfortunately a clean interface is a nice goal but not if it takes several clicks to do what used to take just one or two. With the past version I could simply go to the Toolbar to change the font, size, color, or just about any parameter for the selected object. With version 6.1 the Toolbar is merely a link to the Inspector and it now takes several clicks to make even simple changes to an object. And the overly aggressive autocorrect is unbelievably frustrating. I am a scientist/professor and teach college science courses. I don’t expect autocorrect to recognize the scientific terms in my slides. Unfortunately Keynote insist on autocorrecting words it does not recognize no matter how many times I click the “X” in the autocorrect pop-up. Presumably this should tell Keynote to not autocorrect the word but it does not work. Bottom line- I spend more time fighting/wrestling this version of Keynote than creating with it. This is a truly horrible “upgrade” - even worse than using Powerpoint! Version 5 was so much better.

Review by Db9876

Slide Navigator - Since the latest update, in presentation mode the slide navigator does not take you directly to the active, “presented” slide, but to some other location. It’s easy to get lost if the presenter is not anchored to their current location in a presentation. Is this a known issue?

Version 7.0.5
Review by tythomps

Good. Room For Improvement - I like Keynote because of the creative capabilities it does possesses but, lately I have been noticing that it has been quite buggy with lag times up to 30 seconds on occasion which makes it a pain, especially when I just want to open it up quickly and make a couple adjustments to my presentations and I’m sitting there waiting for the loading beach ball icon to disappear. So, for the time being, I guess I’ll go with Microsoft PowerPoint. Please fix this ASAP, Apple!

Version 7.0.5
Review by michaelmays

Problems with recording - I make frequent use of recording slideshows in sync with audio. However, with Version 7, you can LOAD the audio, but while recording, you cannot HEAR it. Apple has made no effort to fix this problem. The rest of iWork 2016 may be fine, but Keynote is (in this respect) quite broken. Moreover, if you’re using an older version, by advised you can’t use that older version if you install Keynote 7—all Keynote shows, regardless of whether you’ve opened them in Keynote 7, become Keynote 7 forever. You’ll have to Time Machine everything to repair the connections. Very frustrating. One more thing: someone on the discussion boards said something about there being some version 6.6.2 that, while it won’t be a “full-blown” Keynote 7 (with the useless “collaboration” features), it will open Keynote 7 files. However, Mac App Store doesn’t seem to let me uniquely select any particular compile of Keynote—just the newest one. Way to go, Apple. Just keep pushing people away. SOOO very disappointing.

KEYNOTES ME ESTÁ RESETEANDO LA MAC DURANTE SU USO - Algo está pasando que cuando estoy en pleno uso del programa, la máquina se resetea. Solo pasa con el uso del keynotes y dice que es fallo del KERNEL. No se como resolver esta situación y es preocupante porque uso esta aplicación como herramienta de trabajo principal. Gracias

Review by Basketballogy

Buggy -- like all Apple products these days - The latest update either crashes when I export slides, or it mangles them, making the imagages unusable.
