  • Basic Features Missing

    By Tiffodo
    As others have stated, dragging to select would be so much more efficient. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had to select and reselect because of multiple layers of objects...and it just never seems to work properly. I instinctively keep trying to use my Apple Pencil to work with, only to scribble all over my work. Also, why is it that when I group objects together, I can’t link them? For example, I have font on top of a shape and want to link them both to another slide, so I grouped them. I have to link both the text and the shape in order for this to work? I’ve probably spent double the time on my project than necessary if the app just offered basic functions. It’s also incredibly frustrating that when I zoom, the toolbar blocks the top of my slide completely, so the only way I’m able to navigate small shapes at the top of my slide is to be zoomed out...but I can’t use my Apple Pencil to navigate the elements of my slide in place of my fingers!
  • Ok, but unusable for what I’m doing

    By Thegrandgee
    I’m trying to make lectures for my class and the Apple Pencil works well with Keynote. As I present my presentation I add annotations so I can do our math problems. Unfortunately the ‘done’ button is near where my right hand will rest while making annotations. This clears the screen in the middle of the annotations, making me start over. Also, there is no option to keep the annotations once you are done with the presentations. I like making the slides in keynote better than PP, but I can keep the annotations in PP and not have to start over since there isn’t a done button in PP. the pencil doesnt work as well (switching colors brings down a drop down menu in PP where it appears at the bottom in Keynote) but starting over because I bumped the button is infuriating. I managed to waste a good amount of time and have nothing to show for it. If it’s possible to move the colors and done button, that would be great but I haven’t found anything about it so far.
  • My Go To App for Business!

    By Designers dream
    I have 3 very different businesses. I have used Keynote for years! It is the most flexible presentation software I have ever found! I have always had to use both Microsoft and Apple platforms. I finally committed to going 100% Apple because of 2 major strengths; Ease of Use and Flexibility! In Keynote you will be able to create a beautiful professional looking presentation in minutes versus the days you would spend in any other program. This saves my businesses time and money! While at the same time making me money because the final product is visually powerful. Always gets my point across with stunning clarity. I highly recommend this product whether you are a first time user or a seasoned professional. You are only limited by your own imagination!
  • Fix the rotate feature!!!

    By jwrights94
    There’s a lot of great things about this app, but let’s be honest, Apple, you’ve really really dropped the rotate feature on this app for iPad. In theory, it makes sense, use two fingers to rotate the object to the direction you want and yes I know how Apple loves multi touch features. However, this one is down right annoying!! It takes you waaaaaaay longer to rotate something than it needs too. I have been trying to rotate an image for 20 minutes! I just can’t grab the image to rotate it. A lot of times the same thing happens when you want to move an object too. It’s like the app doesn’t recognize the fact you’re actually trying to interact with it. So please, please, please add a rotate button to the images and objects you’re working with because it’s very frustrating when you’re trying to do a 1 second thing and it takes literally 20 minutes.
  • iPhone 5s remote feature broken Fixed

    By Mark#itnow
    Apple why did you break the remote feature in keynote for the best device ever by size ( small ) iPhone 5s. I do not have an SE. I am able to link to newer iPhones without issue. However the iPhone 5s will not see a remote to link to it nor will it display itself on a device you are linking it to. However if you cancel trying to link the device running the presentation you are attempting to link to crashes every time. So something is being done. It is just blocked. Please reenable remote keynote feature to the iPhone 5s. I had to delete the app on my iPhone 5s and redownload it. Works perfectly now.
  • Awesome! But could use a little more features

    By Savanah
    I’m a college student and keynote is my go-to when it comes to editing my powerpoints during lectures. However, I wish it had more utensils to work with. Mainly just a highlighter (that appears behind the text rather than over the text). Also, it would be nice have folders that you can sort the files into. I use the tabs for now, but I feel like it would be easier to arrange them into folders. Lastly, I would like to suggest being able to star certain slides on the powerpoints. This will help when going back to important slides or knowing which slides I need to study a bit more.
  • Good, but could be a lot better

    By sandimas
    The app is solid. But, it could be so much better with very little imagination and effort (especially for the soon-to-be trillion-dollar company that makes the iPad Pro!). For example, Keynote needs drag to select. Long touch at a particular spot to activate selection mode and bring up crosshairs. Drag the finger, during which a dotted rectangle dynamically follows to show you what you are selecting. Lift finger, and all items touching the rectangle have been selected. Upon lifting finger, show popover action menu. This is pretty straightforward, and countless other apps already do it. The current approach of selecting one item at a time while keeping another finger on an "anchor" item is silly and slow for slides that have many graphical objects. Keynote developers need to work with OmniGraffle for a day. I get it that Keynote probably doesn't want to be as intricate as OmniGraffle with multitouch, but still.... there are some basic things (like drag to select) that could be done so much more intuitively and creatively to truly capture the magic of touch interface.
  • Something Is Wrong

    By PowersJons
    When I first stared using Keynote it was perfect; so I purchased it. Since then it has gotten progressively worse! Every time they update it..about three hundred times seems gets worse. It hangs, it can’t fit the screen the way it use to. Also it doesn’t place the object on the canvas properly most times. I know it only cost $5.00..I think.. but it was worth more when I first bought. There are no ads when you buy it. It was a great app two years ago, now it’s almost worthless. It is better than most PPP’s out there but it’s acting up so bad I’m forced to look for another; sorry guys.🙂
  • Could be better

    By Gaikokujin5
    Worked Keynote on my iPhone With no problem. The only issue here is that the app won’t slow you to edit after viewing. You would need to completely shut down the app, reopen it and go from there. Another thing also is that when sharing with other people to add/edit, collaboration of work flow is not smooth. You can’t simultaneously work on the same project with other people at same time which is a bit frustrating because the changes are not immediate and can get a bit confusing on what is added/edited it.
  • Wow, keynote has stepped it up!

    By Avalovesmath123
    This might be my very first review on a product ever, but i had to because i seriously appreciate you guys stepping up your game like that. I like to be very visual when i teach and i make presentations for videos and math tutorials for my business, and i feel like a whole new set of possibilities has presented itself. Thank you, keynote people! You’re clearly not getting the credit you deserve in these reviews (for some freakin reason 🙄 like, can i see the presentation app that you made??), but ignore the haters, just keep doing you!
