Last week I posted about SlideRocket, an amazing looking presentation tool that is going to have Microsoft shaking in their boots. PowerPoint is going to look like the poor relation – make sure you take the product tour on the site to see what I mean. Jim Gates at his Tipline site has just written about it (can’t believe I was onto something before Jim Gates!!) and has highlighted a great feature that I missed when I was reading about it. One of my concerns was that it was reliant on an internet connection to retrieve your presentation. Jim has pointed out that they have an offline client that will allow you to play your presetation without the internet connection. Brilliant. I’m even more impressed. Can’t wait until it’s available for use. It seems that individual users will be able to use it for free and other costs will be revealed when it comes out for public release. Sign up at the site to get an invite now – it’s my bet that they’re being inundated with requests.
Was looking through feeds on my Google Reader and came across a link to SlideRocket which is due for release soon (I know not when!) according to their website. (Can’t remember whose blog I was reading when I saw the link – sorry – I do like to attribute my sources, only fair, but I can’t find it at the moment!) According to their website this is what SlideRocket can do;
“SlideRocket is a web application that provides everything you need to design professional quality presentations, manage and share libraries of slides and assets, and to deliver presentations in person or remotely over the web.”
You can take a tour of SlideRocket via their homepage – I think it looks fantastic. Some of their transitions are really effective. I hope it’s available soon. I have to prepare a couple of major presentations over this holiday break and I’d love to do them using this tool. They recently won three out of a possible four awards at the Under the Radar conference – read about it on their blog page. Make sure you sign up for an invite to try it out when it approaches release.
