If you want to use professionally produced PowerPoint with animation and some of the other PowerPoint features this software sucks big time. First it won't show the animation at all, no way. For me, that ruins the slide show. Secondly about halfway through my show it just quit showing the pictures at all. It also changed the type font, the color and the transitions from slide to slide. I hate the feature wwhere it just starts playing the slide show...You have to stiop it very quickly or the show is on its way before you are ready to begin. I have an Asus 201 transformer Prime 32 gig pad. The software that came with it did a far better job than this program. if you have a well produced show and you need to show it to someone...avoid this software like the plague. It's bad.
