Google’s Presentation App Is Here at Last

From first looks, the new presentation component of Google Docs seems to work well. I haven’t yet created a slideshow from scratch using the online tool, but I did upload one from a presentation I gave some time ago, and the slides look pretty much like they ought to (there are a couple of formatting problems which should be easy to fix).

Google’s presentation app does not have all the bells and whistles that Microsoft PowerPoint has, most people don’t need all the features which PowerPoint offers. The presentation functionality of Google Docs may work quite well for most people who need to create a simple slideshow, and with its price tag of $0, Microsoft ought to be concerned about what this means for its market share of office applications.
