If you are a Microsoft Powerpoint user, then you are going to like this write-up on the cloud based application called “280 Slides”.
“280 Slides” is an online, web (cloud) based, slideshow presentation editor (builder) that you use right in your browser. There is no software to download and absolutely nothing to pay for (totally free). The application is currently in beta, like many other cloud apps, but is another good example of “software as a service” (SAS) being driven across the internet. Again, the application is in beta, but I found it to work quite smoothly for a beta product. Applications such as this, will only get better and change the way we use software, as we know it.
Immediately catching my attention with this application is that you can import existing Powerpoint presentations into the “280 Slideshow editor” and download the presentations you create into the Powerpoint file format.
- Import Existing Slideshow Formats
- Access your slideshow from anywhere that there is an internet connection.
- Add photos and movies (built in online media search)
- Professional Quality Themes
- Autosave and Recovery
- Download to Powerpoint
- Publish and Share on the Internet
