Pros – Easy creation of beautiful presentations
Cons – As with similar sites and programs created for simplicity such as Weebly, the ease of use can limit options for originality (I.e. single font for each designated purpose [titles, text, quotes, etc.])
Rating – 4.5/5

I actually really enjoyed exploring this app. Once I had an idea to use in class with my future students, it was a breeze to create the presentation below (click here for a pop out window). All I had to do was to write out what I wanted to share with students, find pictures, set them up and I was done! I wasted not a single minute trying to figure out how to do anything I wanted for this project, which is great.
The app interface is completely intuitive. To alter anything, the user simply needs to click on it to show the available options. To change images, the user can take one on the spot, upload one from the iPad, or search on the app through thousands of free stock images.
As with other apps intended for simplicity, it is more geared to the every-day casual presentation builder and does not feature options for more experienced users to operate creatively. It more so operates on the basis of templates for users to plug in their content.
For my purposes, this app was a wonderful find and I am positive I will use it in the future.
