This is because it provides a variety of options for importing presentation files, such as from PowerPoint, Keynote, PDF and Open Document format, as well as via online web services. Moreover, it gives elaborate privacy features with the option to add audio to your shared slides. The best thing is that Presentious is completely free and it doesn’t take much to get used to it.

Import Files from PowerPoint, Keynote, OpenDocument & PDF Formats

The one thing you might really find out of the ordinary is support for importing Keynote files. However, during testing we failed to import a KEY file. While this might sound like a downside but despite the hiccup with the KEY format we had no issues importing PowerPoint files. You can use PPT or PPTX formats for uploading PowerPoint files. The other supported formats include; PDF and OpenDocument (ODP).
