Create cinematic presentations on your iOS device

Keynote is Apple's flagship presentation program that's easy to use and yet generates drop-dead stunning presentations, from photography portfolios to business presentations.

Incredibly slick presentations

For anyone used to PowerPoint, Keynote provides a more glamorous experience with the ability to create cinematic presentations that tell a story more effectively and dramatically. It's incredibly easy to turn the most mundane of presentations into something more interesting thanks to the transitions and other effects available in Keynote.

You can add transitions and effects into KeyNote that are simply not possible with PowerPoint, including moving objects and animations. Adding and removing backgrounds is simply a drag and drop process, while there are some gorgeous themes to choose from which make your presentations look slick before you've even got started. In this latest version, there are new transitions including Shimmer and Sparkle and the ability to add reflections to shapes.

While business presentations can easily be spiced up with Keynote, with photo presentations you only have to drag and drop photos and Keynote does the rest. Integration with OS X has also been vastly improved in this latest release, giving you the ability to import and export PowerPoint and Keynote for Mac slides and themes.

Optimized for touchscreens

Keynote for iOS has been built from the ground-up to be optimized for touch screens and although the experience is not quite as easy as on a Mac, it is amazingly easy to create presentations with Keynote on an iOS device. Integration with iCloud has been vastly improved so that you can start working on your presentation on Mac and finish it on iOS at a later stage.

If you want to share your work with someone close by, you can also use Airdrop to drag and drop presentations to them.

One of the coolest features is when it comes to showtime, you can use video mirroring to present on an HDTV or preview your slides and notes on your device using the Presenter Display.

You'll never go back to PowerPoint

Keynote is a triumph for presentation makers and you'll never go back to PowerPoint once you've explored just a few of its superb features.


  • Creates cinematic presentations easily
  • Supports dragging and dropping of components
  • Supports some amazing animation effects
  • 30 Apple themes to choose from


  • Less suited to business presentations than PowerPoint
  • Some stability issues with iOS 8
