Apple Keynote is a macOS app used to create, edit, save, and view presentations. It is one of Apple's three productivity apps available in the iWork suite, which is available for free for Mac users. The other two apps are Pages and Numbers. The application is also available for iOS and can be accessed using a browser on a Mac or PC through iCloud.
Keynote supports all versions of the Keynote presentation format, including '06, '08 and '09, and Microsoft PowerPoint .PPTX and .PPT formats. The app enables you to drop in photos or video, add reflections and picture frames to images, and insert high-quality transitions to the slides. Keynote allows you to present data in various ways, whether in a column, scatter, bar, pie, and bubble chart. You can also add animation to the charts.
The software enables you to share your presentation directly from the app through Mail, Messages, AirDrop, YouTube, Facebook, Photos, Dropbox, and Gmail. You can also share password-protected presentations via an iCloud link and preview shared presentations on iOS and Android browsers.
Keynote is an app designed for Mac users looking to present their ideas and data to an audience. The software gives you a variety of creative tools and effects and support for the PPTX format. While it is not as widely used as Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote is still a helpful (and free) presentation tool for Mac users.
