Forget About PowerPoint, Get Busy With 280 Slides!

When I say that I stopped using any kind of office suite people look to me like I would look at someone telling me he/she has no idea about a thing called "the Internet" but the difference is that I can get the job done without using an office suite although I am involved in quite a lot of office work. How's this possible? Online tools that's the answer and since most of you already heard about Google Docs I will tell you a few words about probably the best PowerPoint replacement you can get for free and without installing a single bit of code on your computer (no it doesn't have anything to do with Google Docs although that suite also has some presentation-creating capabilities) namely 280 Slides!

According to its authors "280 Slides is designed to really look and feel like the desktop based applications people are used to" and what I can tell you is that if you really need to create some presentation this online tool beats Microsoft's PowerPoint from most points of view. I discovered it earlier today but I already love this tool! Just think about these - text graphics videos free to use and once you register you can save and share your presentations online but what I really like about 280 Slides is its speed not to mention the excellent look & feel...

To give it a quick try there's no need to register - just go here and create a new presentation or simply take a tour! I will only add that your creations can be downloaded as PowerPoint 2007 or 97-2004 Open Document and PDF files so that "compatibility excuse" falls. What you're waiting for go ahead and give it a try you'll thank me later! ;)
