A couple of years ago I came across Prezi an interesting web application that allowed you to create online presentations to collaborate and share them with others. Recently I have revisited Prezi to see what’s new and I’m pretty impressed. The app is now a whole lot easier to use and has a lot of great innovative features.
Extract from the Prezi website:
“Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery.”
The developers at Prezi are constantly designing new features to make the experience better and introduce new features. I think this is a fantastic application to use for presenting web designs, technical concepts and project updates to your clients. If you don’t mind your presentations being public then app is free to use. If you would prefer to keep your presentations private then Prezi offer 2 packages, Enjoy at $59 per year for 500mb or Pro at $159 per year for 2gb and an a desktop app to create your presentations. Students and teachers can have the Enjoy package for free and the Pro package for $59 per year.
Recently I was tasked with educating a client on the current state of mobile web technology and what options were available for publishing her app. Prezi came in very handy, it allowed me to formulate my research and present my findings in a simple and easy to use web interface. Prezi has an awesome feature called Prezi Meeting that allows you to invite a user to view your presentation and have remote control of the what the user sees on their screen. This feature is great for presenting a software idea, web site design compositions and concepts over the phone.
