"Now I do not create boring presentations, I create works of art"

What do you like best?

Excellent interface. I understood it easily. Simply great opportunities customization of presentations. This service is really more powerful than PowerPoint. The process of creating a presentation is not like the ones you used to see in standard programs like PowerPoint and Google Slides. You have a large number of different instruments and the limitation is only of your imagination. Also, I was pleased with a large number of built-in languages and fonts. A large database of ready templates that are completely free (if you have a subscription). It is also possible to export the presentation directly to the EXE file and run from any device.

What do you dislike?

Subscriptions are quite expensive if you use the service for personal purposes (but for the company the price is not so large).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely, try Focusky. With it you will be able to create works of art and make your audience happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I no longer create boring presentations that move from slide to slide. With the help of Focusky and its 3D transition effect, my presentations began to look like a professionally created video. My audience is always delighted with such presentation. I create presentations for different audiences and I liked that Focusky has built-in support for a large number of languages.

"Focusky is a very nicely packaged presentation app"

What do you like best?

One of the things that I like about the Focusky presentation app is all the pre-designed things that you can easily use for your presentation. One of the most time consuming things for any presentation is to make it interesting, and Focusky has cut that time down with their professional looking templete pieces.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I'm not keen on is how you have to use the program. I wish there was a way to just in put the information and then just click and drag on the sections you want to put in a specific spot. I would take out some the extra work when using the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely look into all the other options out there. The biggest thing when evaluating a software like this is does it fit what you'd like it to do. If so, then you have yourself a winner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I haven't really used it for much. I have used other programs like Prezi with presentations. The most that I have used it is to play around with how it works. For presentations I think I would enjoy using it though.

What Presentation solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Smooth animation for your creative work."

What do you like best?

The huge ability to using slide, zoom and pan effects for projects and make them more effective. Adding animation effects to objects will make our presentation interactive. I really like that I can share the presentation with a social media which is maks for us a friendly connection with audiences.

What do you dislike?

Definitely, I don't have any bad problems with this software. With this platform, I have a lot of working tools. Big helper to keep all audience with me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are dreaming to create an original and very beautiful presentation than it is better to choose Focusky. This program has a lot of useful backgrounds tools. Also has a big variety of formats. Awesome solution and a great chance to have in your hands.

"Just shy of perfection"

What do you like best?

I love that Focusky gives me all the great features and animation of Prezi, but at a lower cost. It's everything I want in my presentation.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the company wasn't transparent about their capability of video support for your presentation done online. My main purpose was to have a presentation that can seamlessly embed videos so the user did not have to leave the experience through an outside link. The company wasn't transparent or have updated their website and video tutorials that they no longer support youtube videos.

After having several discussion during my trial version of the challenges I was having with the software, they couldn't troubleshoot the glitch of embedding online videos when zoomed-in deeper than ground zero of the canvas. When an online video is embedded, the box doesn't appear only its option buttons. With no answers from support, I came up with an alternative, yet a tedious way to embed it: by embedding it at ground zero of the canvas, then a continuous scale small and zoom-in until I can place the video of the desired layer.

After determining through the trial version that the presentation was a good fit, I proceeded to order the pro version. When I finalized my presentation to perfection, I was excited to see it online, but only to receive more disappointment. The online video controls do not lock into the path window, and all my videos were displayed cut-off, outside of the viewing window in the lower right-hand corner. When I contact support, then they tell me that the site is not capable of this, but that their engineers are working on updating this with not Estimated Time of when this will be implemented. Also to mention that the slideshows are no longer supported online.

So I write this review with great frustration and disappointment that Focusky wasn't transparent from the beginning of their capabilities. Everything else works amazingly, but Focusky is just shy of perfection. I look forward to future updates in supporting what they advertise.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product if you're not looking for online video or slideshows being embedded.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Focusky is being used for a business Pitch Deck.

"Best tool for great presentations. "

What do you like best?

Focusky is easy to use and provides similar features that Prezi offers. The presentations are even simpler to create with Focusky. There are many options available to create business presentations, which is ideal when trying to create a unique presentation. The software is user friendly, and new employees are able to see the different features and implement them in their own way.

What do you dislike?

The software has been compatible with my needs in a business presentations, and I have not found any problems with the features I use. I do not have any problems with the software and by spending more time using the program I will be able to create even more effective presentations with the software's assistance. Unfortunately, there was one issue I noticed with embedding videos into presentations. If that issue were to be resolved, than this would essentially be the program to always recommend user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great software for implementing great business presentations. The ease of using the software and the various tools available to create the presentations make for a great tool to implement in the workplace. One thing I have noticed is that sometimes it has issues with embedding videos into the presentations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The work is more effective and professional with the help of Focusky. It helps create amazing presentations that set us apart from competitors. Not only are the presentations easier to make, the presentations provide a viewing which is appealing to all employees

"User friendly and aesthetically pleasing features"

What do you like best?

The ability to catalog all presentations that I have worked on as well as the social media integration that allows me to share my projects from work with friends and family. It is also nice to be able to just add the finishing touches on an already finished power point and make it look better before presenting.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it is dependent on other programs and that it is difficult (if not impossible) to start a project and work on it exclusively in Focusky. I have yet to discover a privacy setting that allows me to work on a presentation and store it privately to avoid the public being able to see my content sensative work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work for a financial planning firm and have used Focusky to add the finishing touches to presentations before showing clients. This software allows me to easily make the presentation more aesthetically pleasing and provides a virtual storage area for all of my work.

"a nice alternative to powerpoint"

What do you like best?

It has neat ways of transitioning between material. People really like it compared to the standard powerpoint transitions. It makes my work look a whole lot better than it otherwise would be (at least in terms of visual presentation). It's also really good at adding/displaying videos and interactive links, which is a nice plus.

What do you dislike?

UI can be a bit confusing if you are used to powerpoint, but you get used to it quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It was a great alternative to generic powerpoint presentations. Mostly the benefits have been for presenting material in meetings.

"Poor Customer Service, average product"

What do you like best?

It does give a few more options than powerpoint (I got base subscription, $10/mo.)

What do you dislike?

Necessary computer specs not listed (you need an i7 processor to render video presentations). Customer service responded to my email in a reasonable time, but only with dismissive "help". They are not customer-focusked!

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are better options out there

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was unable to resolve my problems with Focusky, but not before they charged me for a second month that I was unable to opt out of.

"Brilliant for what it does. "

What do you like best?

Simple interface and easy to pick up and learn, Focusky helps you get to the point and get done what you want to get done. Would recommend. After years of using the Office suite, I was ready to try something new. This seems to be a product developed with the modern age in mind. Which in my opinion is a breath of fresh air. I am excited to see what else I will learn about this product through further use. Keep doing what you do!

What do you dislike?

Minor nitpick, menus could use a little refining. Some of the options seemed to be confusing until I played around with them some more. Other than that, it seems to be a well put together and thought out product, that as far as I'm concerned beats the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try, it may help you in ways you haven't thought of. If you have experience with the Office suite, you will be at home and more with Focusky.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for a product exactly like this, and it definitely fits the bill. It could use a little refinement, but other than that it seems off to a good start .
