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!
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.

SO much better than PowerPoint! - I’ve discovered that by making slides with ‘full bleed’ images (that go all the way to the edges) and using 90+ point font my presentations are absolutely beautiful and they look NOTHING like Powerpoint...
Won’t Download - May, or may not, be the greatest version of Keynote ever. I may never know. It won’t download! SEVERAL others have made this same notation. Apple needs to fix this NOW!!!
Never actually downloads - Anyone have any luck getting this to actually work? Apple, can you please provide a new link.
Upgrade freezes - Upgrade freezes, have been trying for ages now. Come on Apple.. not good enough!
CANNOT DOWNLOAD - Apple please fix this! I cannot access key business presentations, because it will not download. REALLY unimpressed.
