Prezi takes an entirely different approach to PowerPoint’s linear slideshows. It provides an unlimited canvas for your words and pictures.
Presentations work by zooming in to different parts of the canvas. You can pre-set the path around the canvas or change it on the fly, enabling you to adapt each presentation to the audience.
The overall effect is über-cool and feels a lot less structured than PowerPoint. Being an online app, it allows you to create and access presentations on any connected device with a browser. It also offers a broad range of templates to get you started.
Prezi is free but you’ll need to pay a fee from US$10 per month to keep your presentations private and for advanced tools including the ability to work offline with a Windows or Mac app.
