Office Sway vs Prezi in our news:

2015. Microsoft adds collaboration features to Office Sway



Office Sway, the recent addition to Microsoft’s Office suite, blending together note taking, presenting, now gets some collaboration features. Out today is the ability to copy Sways, so that you can have a version of your own. That will be useful among groups, when people might want to preserve a specific version or the like for later use.  Sway is notable in that it was launched first in-browser, a step away from the traditional, desktop-focused Office apps. Microsoft seems comfortable with Sway sitting somewhere on a cloud, in between the use-cases of Word, Excel and Power Point.


2014. Microsoft’s new Office app, Sway becomes generally available



Microsoft’s Office Sway, an online tool for creating presentation documents, is now generally available to the public. Microsoft describes Sway as a new way to create a beautiful, interactive, web-based expression of your ideas, from your phone or browser. It is easy to share your creation and it looks great on any screen.  Sway is an interesting product given that it doesn’t have traditional files, like the original Office suite. So it was built for the cloud. Microsoft, of course, is working to convert Office into a cloud product that it can sell on a recurring basis via subscriptions.


2014. Online presentations service Prezi secures $57M



Cloud presentation platform Prezi that has been gradually eating away at Microsoft’s Powerpoint market share for the last few years, has secured a $57 million growth investment. Prezi is cloud-based, meaning you can present from your browser, desktop, iPad, or iPhone and always have the latest version of your work at your fingertips. Prezi’s software is unusual because the presentations it produces aren’t


2011. Prezi+iPad - ideal presentations at conferences

We continue to find new interesting ways of how iPad (and other tablets) can be used in the Enterprise. We have already mentioned that for executives and sales persons who often go to business meetings iPad can serve as a cool accessory to impress the client. But frankly speaking, nobody will demonstrate presentations on the iPad at these business meetings. Projector or laptop with bigger screen are much more appropriate for this case. But at different exhibitions and conferences, where you can meet many partners and customers, iPad - is an ideal solution to show presentation on the go. Besides, now the spectacular presentation tool has appeared - Prezi for iPad. We have already reviewed Prezi - it's one of the most original and exciting services for online presentations. And on the iPad it looks impressive. It's interesting that presentations are not saved on the tablet, but broadcasted from the Internet. Besides this first version doesn't support video, animation and PDF files. It also doesn't allow to edit presentations - only to demonstrate.


2009. Prezi - fresh look at the Web presentations



When it comes to presentations, the minimalist style, that is usually more appropriate to business applications - not works so fine. Because you want your audience (potential customers) to say "WOW!". That's why besides the classic presentation apps, such as PowerPoint or Google Presentations, there is number of quite succesful alternative presentation tools such as SlideRocket with its incredible flash effects or Second Life with its virtual 3D auditories. The Hungarian start-up Prezi also belongs to this group. It has already gathered a lot of excited reviews, awards and investments. It's coolest feature is that the entire presentation is placed on one large virtual board, and its demonstration - is navigation on this board with dynamic scaling.
