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.

Version 7.3.1
Review by Ninja 423

Use the Duplicate Feature - Supermagnetman: use the duplicate feature. Even if you forget to duplicate before making changes to your previous week’s presentation, choose duplicate, rename and it will save. Then go back to the first presentation and undo all the changes. Unlike Word, you are able to undo changes even after a save. Try it. To others, I’ve been using Keynote for over a year. With a few exceptions, I love it. It works well, is smooth, doesn’t crash.

Version 7.3.1
Review by Presentation Maker

I support Supermagnetman’s comment: Where is SAVE AS? - Keynote is a fantastic program over Power Point which I never use now. I can even mimic some functions that Ai does. However, this missing “SAVE AS” feature is beyond annoying. I agree it should be there…like every other program in the universe.

Version 7.3.1
Review by GetJobsBack

Files stored on Network volumes are absolutely glitched out and crash-heavy - The latest version has nearly ruined my ability to save and access files from a network volume. No coincidence that today after updating to 7.3.1 I’ve experienced no fewer than 10 total hangs and crashes on my macPro 2013. Finder becomes totally unresponsive as well. I’ve pinpointed the culprit being keynote when it is open with a file that is stored on a networked volume. Give me a break Apple.

Version 7.3.1
Review by Cvo.Media

Lots of compatibility/installation issues - Here are the issues our staff (n=25) is having with the whole new OS/Keynote updates: 1. Frozen App Store - some people can’t update to High Sierra because the app store keeps freezing. 2. Glitchy App Store - some people can’t log into their Apple accounts because the verification code denies the pw, but the dialogue to enter the varification code doesn’t pop up, thereby creating a circular loop of wrong pw/need verification code. 3. Frozen Keynote app - spinning wheel of death when trying to update the new Keynote. 4. Last but not least - some people with the newest OS and newest Keynote cannot open decks while others with the newest OS/Keynote can! Mind blown.
