PowerPoint is obviously the software of choice for most people in business. And although it is great software in many ways, especially in its integration with SharePoint 2007.  While people prefer using Apple iWork Keynote for presenting. It just looks so slick, and those transitions are great. SlideRocket really is a game changing piece of software. For starters, it runs on practically every platform. That is because it is web based. SlideRocket call it a rich-internet application. That means you can use it on Windows, Mac and Linux. And you are not stuck to just being able to use it when you have an Internet connection. There is an Adobe AIR desktop client that caches the presentations locally, allowing you to run them when you are off the grid. You can also extend SlideRocket with its plug-ins. These allow for all kinds of effects to be used with images.

Just sign up and start creating your slides, which you can then display and share with anyone you feel might be interested. This could be great for school, work, or even to show some of your most recent trip pictures.
