SlideRocket – loving this free app

By February 22, 2011 2 Comments


Part of what I try to do with my self-confessed ICT Evangelist role is to try and pass on some of the cool hints, tips, bits of info, gadgets, education technology, web 2.0 tools etc that I find on my virtual travels in the Internetland.

One such find recently was SlideRocket. 

To keep it simple, SlideRocket is like a cross between PowerPoint and Prezi – it’s got some of the cool flash based tricks that you might find in a Prezi, but with your more traditional slide based approach to presenting that you’d find with PowerPoint.

Here’s an example of one I messed around with earlier:


·         It’s free

·         It looks cool

·         Embedding videos from Youtube is a breeze

·         It can make your presentations stand out from the crowd

·         It’s easy to use


·         You have to pay for certain features like keeping your presentations private

·         There isn’t a huge amount of templates to choose from

Overall it gets a big thumbs up from me. With >1gb of storage space for assets such as images too – it’s well worth a peek.
