When using Vyond, you will be able to do so much more in your presentation.

Your audience will be engaged and it has the same features that PowerPoint has.

You will be able to share your presentation, the software is simple to use, it’s compatible, you have many features and templates and you can have it for $39 per month.


Zoho is also very user-friendly, but most importantly it has a free plan for up to 25 users! Anything beyond that can cost anywhere from four to six dollars per user. How great is that? It’s compatible with all desktops and android users. It also has a variety of features and templates and your presentation can be shared with others.


Google Slides provides a plethora of features.

Presentation Software & Powerpoint Alternatives


Before I get into the features of Keynote, be aware that, it is designed specifically for Mac computers, yet and still the features are amazing. While PowerPoint is big on using bullets Keynote focuses more on images so that your audience is more engaged.

This particular software is a bit more user-friendly than PowerPoint, it has many templates available for use; you are able to share with others and its compatible with MAC’s iPads and iPhones and it’s free.


Let me first say that I love the fact that you can stream your presentation live with Slidedog. However, you would need to upload media for your presentation because they lack a design library, but that doesn’t have to stop you from making an amazing presentation.

You can still share with your audience live. It’s simple to use, it’s compatible with desktop computers and PC’s and it’s free as well.

While PowerPoint has been around for ages, there are plenty of alternatives out there for your use.
