The best app in the world.

I've been using Keynote since it's was introduced to the the Mac in 2003. I use it almost every day for all sorts of creative work and office work. It's especially useful for creating 2D animated stories and artwork. This app has given me so much pleasure. I love the mental challenge of working out how to get Keynote to perform in ways it's not supposed to be able to.
My biggest frustration is when the Apple designers remove features that I have become used to using. Thanks Apple for creating such an enjoyable app. It is my absolute favourite and I often use it instead of playing computer games. The creativity it allows brings me far more pleasure in the long run. Rainbird

The one thing

It seems to me - as someone who uses this product for a living - that you can either get that this is the best way to make slides or not. If not, then either you've not yet had a chance to use it or PowerPoint will continue to suffice and you'll never know the difference. But once you realise that you want to polish and improve your presentations there is literally nothing else that will substitute for Keynote. It's clean, efficient, helpful, and beautiful. It is, in short, the perfect tool for the job.

Need a cut down version to load on USB stick with presentation

I love keynote but unfortunately, all too often when doing presentations, the presentation organisers don’t use Mac or you have to load your presentation on their system. So even if I bring my Mac with me and all the possible connectors to ensure my presentation works it is not enough…There have been occasions when I had to quickly convert to PowerPoint and I end up losing all the transition effects that are so important in telling a story.

Apple… Is it possible to create a cut down version of keynote that can be loaded on a USB stick with my presentation so I can plug and play and not have to worry about connecting up my computer or using the ancient software of other people’s computers?
