Any advice for any free online equivalents of powerpoint online. Looking to put a presentation together and trying to avoid buying a full microsoft package. Any recomendations appreciated. cheers Ed

Keynote is 14 from the App Store, and I think it's worth it.

or a free alternative is LibreOffice

For free online stuff, how about Google Docs

or maybe something like Prezi

In reply to Ed Booth: Another for open office. Downloaded it for free and you can save files in several different file types including power point

In reply to Ed Booth: Keynote for me. I use it on ipad and find it easier than PowerPoint. Great value for 14.

Yes, Keynote wins hands down.

Keynote is a PITA if you ever want to use something else. You'll basically be lumbered with it and its bullet madness forever.

Try libreoffice - free and open and a complete office replacement. The presentation packge for libreoffice used to be the weak link but is now mature and equal to ppt or keynote.

It runs on anything and imports / exports to anything (except keynote).

Since it is free you can try it, if you don't get on with it what have you lost?

Prezi is my presentation package of choice, at present. Very easy to use, and a nice alternative to PP. I use the free version, though presentations are public. No major problem unless you a using sensitive content, I guess.

LibreOffice is a fork or the OpenOffice source code, so they're very close in terms of functionality. Try both and see which one you prefer.
