Top 5 Alternatives to PowerPoint

Posted on

PowerPoint is very popular software. It has a linear character, which causes the presenter to reduce complex objects to simple things. It is also quite expensive and ordinary.

PowerPoint is not the best program for creating presentations, especially if you are trying to focus on its appearance (something other than headers and bulleted lists). In this case, you can find more affordable, online alternatives to PowerPoint.
Fortunately, many other services are now available in which you can quickly and conveniently create beautiful presentations.

There are several presentation software worth considering as a substitute for PowerPoint. 
Here is the list of the best alternatives to PowerPoint you should have a look at. They have their pros and cons, so explore, experiment and select what suits you.
