Online powerpoint applications are among top productivity tools letting you create, edit and share .ppt (powerpoint) and some other presentation formats online. They’re extremely useful if you

  • need regular access to presentation files from different locations(for viewing, presenting or editing)
  • working on collaborative projects, with multiple people working in the same document
  • or just feel like doing things online

I have listed top 6 web based presentation tools, while all of them share some basic features of desktop powerpoint, there are some key differences…

And finally I want to quickly go over ‘print to PDF’ feature which I think provided by only 2 of the above, however even if the option isn’t there you still can convert presentations to PDF using Adobe Acrobat’s print to PDF feature accessible from browser window (File->Print).

comments welcome
