Pros: Easy to use, fun. Produces very professional looking videos.

Cons: It is difficult to select objects and edit if they overlap.

I would like to be able to add tags to the images so I could easily find those I want to use multiple times.

When changing the sizes of objects, both the width and height change proportionately. It would be good to be able to change just one, especially boxes.

Overall: I am an instructional designer/developer and I use PowToon as part of eLearning courses and to communicate changes to end users. The premade templates make PowToon really easy to use. I find a look I like then modify with my content. Each template has its own music but I may upload my own music and upload images to personalize the video even more.

If I have a question, I can chat directly with the support team (and I have had lots of questions). I had some trouble understanding the timing of objects when I first started. (Hint: where the thumbnail displays on the time line has Nothing to do with the exit time) and was frustrated by the lack of technical information about how the product works. This is because they depend on their support team to help users. Generally this is good but I would like to see Some documentation, even if it were just voiceovers on a PowToon to explain something.

I found using a PowToon to communicate a recent system change to end users resulted in about a 70% view rate instead of a close to 10% read rate for just an email for a previous communication. I host the video on our SharePoint site and provide a link so it's easy to track the views.



I just extended my subscription for another year and look forward to new features, new images, and new templates.

Recommendations to other buyers: Contact the support team with questions. Works best with Chrome so install that before you use PowToon for the first time to avoid frustration. Don't be afraid to change the type entrance and exit for objects. They are just a suggestions.

Pros: This is my go-to presentation creation software, far better than Power-Point slides. It is clear they are constantly improving their platform with new features and updates appearing regularly in the system, and I've watched over the years how the platform has continued to improve. I've not been able to find anything comparable in price and features on the market.

Cons: Occasionally there is a delay in the uploading of content, likely processing time for information to communicate between servers. Also, I wish there were an improvement on the way to render/download a mp4 file. Currently it renders it on the server and sends an email to download. I wish there were just a simple render/download button available on the program.

Overall: We make a lot of marketing videos, and this software makes it very easy to throw together a high-quality presentation very quickly, saving time and money in design work.

Pros: Using Powtoon a marketer can, at an affordable price, tell the story behind their company and their product in such a way that it comes alive and captivates the viewer. The animation becomes real and pulls the viewer in. It is a well constructed and professional tool. Besides conveying a story in a powerful way, Powtoon also imparts a feeling of professionalism. It shows the viewer that you as a company, as a product creator, cares and takes pride in that which you wish to sell/impart. It sends of message of creativity and above-and-beyond pride in your product.

Cons: Although I will be the first to admit that I am not tech savvy, nevertheless there are many products on the market that are made for people like myself, so much so that people are often amazed at how much tech I'm able to navigate with so little aptitude. However, Powtoon was not one of them. When I first discovered Powtoon I was excited, when I first logged-in to Powtoon I was revved up to start creating. From the get-go it was as if I was trying to climb a very tall and vertical wall. It was more than a bit frustrating, especially given that Powtoon was touted as an easy to use creation platform. If I had been heavily invested in learning to use Powtoon I'm sure I could have, but it clearly was going to take more than a day or two of serious learning. A learning curve I was not interested in pursuing.

Overall: If you are somebody who is moderately gifted/skillful in animation or you are committed to the learning curve demanded of Powtoon it is a great, and I could see it as being a really fun, animation marketing platform.

Pros: Being a graphic designer, I use this for animated videos & presentations almost everyday. powtoon has so many templates & animation effects which make it very useful to make quick videos. I love this software because it has a clean interface. Colors & design are very user friendly . I would recommend this product to everyone who wants to make animated videos & presentations.

Cons: The hardest part of this product is it sometimes takes way too much time to upload images & add videos to timeline. This is a heavy product, which hangs alot, that makes it very irritating at times.

One thing I want in this product is options to arrange the saved files in folders or as we want because the minus point is when we mistakenly open a file it comes to number one which bothers the order of the files & makes it difficult to keep a check.

Pros: Having photos and icons that can move and appear on a timer is my favorite thing about Powtoon. This simple feature allows me to make my presentations way more interactive and entertaining. Searching or uploading images is super easy and Powtoon has a great database of basic graphics. Adding music is also incredibly easy to do.

Cons: Powtoon is not the place for detailed voiceovers. There's really only an option to add one single audio file and when you're working with many different slides, that can get pretty complicated. The big "Powtoon" logo in the bottom corner of the presentation also totally takes away from a professional look.

Overall: I used Powtoon for many school presentations where the assignment was to make ad campaigns or short promos. Yes, Powtoon can make a presentation exciting enough to look like a commercial. I LOVE this software. It's so usable and full of many features. It is handy for so many purposes and will certainly do the trick if you're not interested in researching clunkier software with a bigger learning curve.

Pros: This tool is great since the environment is very friendly which allows us to devote to the development of the video without worrying about technical difficulties, as well as the possibility of inserting characters, templates and emoticons that allow us to draw the attention of the viewer by remembering that from time to time the viewer loses attention is why we have to find that in that moment that loses attention is also part of our explanation.

Cons: This tool has incredible potential to come to shape the ideas in unique and wonderful ways because in addition to having a large repertoire for the help of the video developer has the ability to add all that audiovisual element that we consider the only difficulty is that it is dependent of the Internet and without it you can not work but that reason does not detract from its great potential

Overall: An educator should always be preparing and never stop studying or preparing. That is why whenever I can take a course I do it in this case it was an elearning course and I was presented with this tool and from that moment on every occasion I can use it I develop my videos through it.

Pros: A variety of pre-built templates to use or edit. The business version has the most options for characters. It's very easy to do voiceover and export the final product.

Cons: The collaboration function doesn't work properly. This feature is still in BETA, but I'd like to use it like you can collaborate on a Google Slides. Sometimes updates don't save. I'd be sure to click SAVE every time you make a major change, or at least each slide you create.

Overall: Powtoon gave me the ability to create engaging content for my students. I've used it to create lessons in both a brick and mortar classroom as well as for online curriculum. I also use it for content on my Youtube channel.

Linda, thank you for the great review,
We are making strides towards upgrading the collaboration feature into something very similar to google docs. In fact we are working on a whole new way to work in teams, share brand assets and powtoons, and work together on the same Powtoon. Stay tuned

Pros: The resources are constantly evolving - it's like i have a new bag of tricks every time I go to design with it. New layouts, fonts, images, etc. make everything really fun to use and fun for my clients to engage with. It is an easy way to inexpensively produce microlearning - added bonus that its visible without an LMS and can be used on the go. If you are experienced in Adobe Captivate, this design format would be very similar to the layers found in eLearning design - only in video layout.

Cons: I dont like the levels of access they make available. If you pay for it, you should have access to everything. Or, if it's not available for my level, dont put it in my design resources toolbox. I use something in a project only to learn that it's not available to me unless i go "pro".

I love how the presentations are, although it is not as fast to learn how to use it as I expected.

Pros: - It has very nice templates and the icons, images and shapes look very modern.

- I can use it for free, with some limitations of course.

- the elements on the screen are very well organized and have guidelines to correctly place what you want to show.

- allows you to share presentations or videos through popular social networks and download them in various formats depending on the type of account, for free accounts you can download it in ppt or pdf format.

- It has good tutorials to learn how to use the application and the help center is good.

- It allows to choose between several styles of presentations such as: real, infographics, cartoon, whiteboard and modern edge.

- The storyboard function is quite useful and practical since it adapts to the type of person who will make the presentation and guides you throughout the process.

Cons: - In spite of the tutorials and help it is not so easy to use it the first time, you have to dedicate a considerable time in learning how to make animations, if you are looking for something to make animated videos quickly this application or is for you.

- the free account only allows videos or presentations with a maximum duration of 3 minutes and pro and agency accounts are quite expensive.

- he does not have options of collaboration with other people for the edition.

Overall: what most took advantage of this application was the use of storyboard because I did not have much knowledge in making animations of this type.

Pros: PowToon is a great software that one can use to create attractive, creative presentations using cartoon characters. The animations are fun and interesting and the great transitions make it more fun to watch and keeps your audience engaged,

A major plus is that the character set is diverse and there are a lot to choose from. There is also lot of support and tutorials online for users to learn from.

Cons: Lovely software, but one of the cons that I encountered was that when my projects got too large, its seems to use a lot of CPU power because my computer lags.

Another con, for those user who love freebies, the free version has a lot of restrictions.

Overall: Great for aiding presentations

Pros: We all think it's a really a fun and simple way to create professional-looking videos and infographics even for people without any design or technical background. If you're familiar with PowerPoint, then it's really easy to learn Powtoon but the result is something with a little more oomph.The presentations look very interesting and engaging with lots of nice options for backgrounds and animation. There are also pre-made templates available which look really appealing and are highly customizable.

There are plenty of tutorials available on the site and they break it down into bite-sized pieces. I also love the fact that I can chat directly with their customer support for help whenever a question or issue comes up.

Cons: It doesn't allow for highly collaborative work just yet, but I am certainly hoping that this is something they are working on. I think that will streamline work for many people especially in terms of those who are working remotely but want to contribute to creating a presentation.

Pros: Powtoon just seems like one of those apps that was made with education in mind. Students enjoy spending time showing what they know through a more interactive and engaging medium. I know I appreciate its simplicity. This speak volumes in education. The templates come in handy and help you guide your creation/video automated actions/figures/characters.

Cons: There isn't a lot to choose from, which I guess makes sense given its simplicity. I just often find students looking for a tad more that they can do. Not to mention there isn't much you can customize as well. A lot is pre-fab.

Overall: Overall, a great addition to the education tech toolbox. Helps turn more basic presentations into something more engaging and interactive. Really supplements traditional presentations.

Pros: My customers are school parents and the cartoon options really grab their attention. I love telling stories through pictures and find it so much easier to put a presentation together on powtoon than any other presentation tool I've used or to write long text.

Cons: It's at the top of my budget limit. But the features are all fantastic and they keep rolling out new ones (like square format and mobile optimized) that help me expand my product offerings.

Overall: Create products that I can sell that are really fun to create!

Pros: Everything! I love all the features and have used it extensively for work. Other parts of our global organization are starting to use it too. I started the trend - and now even our Headquarters in Atlanta are using it!

Cons: Would love more culturally appropriate characters - and also the hands that are featured in the 'whiteboard' piece - can we have options to make them not only Caucasian?

Overall: We are able to better communicate about our change process with our teams throughout the world, and that in turn has helped us move forward!

Thank you Reshma for your kind review.
We have put a lot of emphasis in the last couple of months on character diversity, and in fact in the next few weeks you will see a great improvement on that front with dozens of new characters added.

Pros: I love anything that will grab my students' attention. I especially love it when it's something I can have them use to capture the attention of their classmates. I really like that this is flashy and doesn't require coding or graphic design knowledge to make a fun and professional presentation.

Cons: It's hard to explain to students that they can't use everything they can see. I completely understand that a company would want people to see what they could have for a price, but it's frustrating for students to see all of these really cool features and not be able to touch them.

Overall: I have had my students use PowToons to create a visual representation of text. I have also had them use it as a visual aid for a speech. In both situations, it was very entertaining. The students were engaged completing the assignment and their classmates were engaged when watching their peers present.

Pros: -If you are used to any video software, Powtoon will be easy for you to use.

-A good library of scenes, props, sounds, text, sounds, shapes images...

-Export rendering time takes a couple of minutes.

-Good support: I just used it twice but the answers were fast and clear.

-Good pricing.

Cons: -No sound time line: if we insert a sound/music it plays on all the animation!

-The animation templates library is not often updated.

-The whole platform can be better: here, I'am talking about the navigation between the sections of the sites, for exemple, even as a paid member and connected to the account, I still see the pricing table and the front page etc, a bit confusing at first, but that's not a big deal.

Overall: I've been using Powtoon business since 2015, very satisfied with the product except for the mentioned cons above.

Anyone with a basic knowledge about video editing can use it, the platform is straight forward, pick an animation template, and start editing it or create your own from scratch.

Very nice tool for creating videos, especially promos for new products or services you market.

Pros: You can create very engaging videos, with high CTR and nice music to them, a really top-notch experience come to think of it.

I used it more than once to produce promo videos with a CTA attached for people to click and go straight to a landing page.

Cons: Many aspects of the platform need to be paid for; for example, the "created with Powtoon" thing, which really takes away from the experience.

Canva, which is a creation tool, much like Powtoon, offers many aspects without paying for them. Most people don't even know you used Canva, and the Freemium thing is only for premium icons, backgrounds, etc. or for transparency or re-editable PDF.

Overall: A very nice product, especially if you have no idea how to create an animated video, which is a very big thing today.

Some of the free features don't cut it, but overall - a very good option to choose for your marketing endeavors.

Pros: Powtoons is the easiest online software I could find that helps create professional animated videos to add to my presentations (both for university and for work) without the need for me to take an animation course. The fact that it is free and comes with templates helps too :) The canvas is very intuitive to use with drag and drop functionality.

Cons: These are absolutely no shortcomings of the software

Overall: I first started using Powtoons to add animations to my presentations for university projects. With the tool still being pretty new at that time, I had a lot of fellow students asking for the link to it. More recently I have been using Powtoons to create audio guided videos as help-videos for my clients with some light animations. It has worked wonders in capturing audience attention without the intricacies of some of the other tools available like Adobe. I would recommend it to students as well as professionals to add some edge to their presentations.

Enjoyable to where I purchased a subscription. :)

Pros: Powtoons has a number of professional templates available which makes it easy to start a video project. The program allows you to include your own graphic elements. The program is also similar to PowerPoint as it provides slides so it is easy to use if you know PowerPoint.

Cons: The collaboration option is currently in beta. There is a delay in sharing. Additionally, customization of using a template is time-consuming. It is recommended to storyboard out the video prior. Additionally, you have to upgrade to get the quality animation features.

Overall: If you subscribe to the Powtoons you get better animation and you can set up classes so a student does not need to create accounts.

Pros: Powtoon's is a great software for creating free videos for instructional or educational purposes. There are other paid options, but for basic needs, the free version is great! They have templates and icons and music and more that is easy to plug and play! They also have a ton of free resources and webinars to help with development.

Cons: It can be a little time consuming in the beginning to set up the look and feel of your videos, but with time it becomes easier. Otherwise, it is very intuitive.

Pros: The best feature of the software is its easy to use, it is very intuitive since from the hundreds of screens they have, any person not vato or expert can create wonderful video animations in a few seconds. It also lets you import real videos to be complemented and animated. Our employees have liked the use we give in the instructions of each lesson or course.

Cons: the only disadvantage is that we always depend on an internet connection for their use could take a version desktop under user license. So that in the moments that we are without internet we can still use the great animation software

Overall: The best way to quickly make an entertaining video for our training and human resources department. With powtoon we can generate motivating videos to improve learning indices

Pros: I've been using PowToon since 2014 and have done so in many settings--professional, church, community, etc. Every video I've made has been top quality. I appreciate the racial diversity of the cartoon characters. . Fantastic product and my gold standard for white board animation.

Cons: My one request (which I've made for years) is that the hands also have complexion diversity. I wish the hand that can write words and move pictures in and out came in different complexions. We only have a white hand as an option. Please ask some brown and black options.

Overall: I use PowToon to create engaging educational videos for medical education (I'm a physician and professor at a medical school), church (I teach 5th grade Bible class) and community events (I made "This is Your Life" videos for birthday parties and funeral tribues).

Pros: Best things about Powtoon are:

Super easy to work with, easy to learn

Great formats you can use to work in

Many opportunities to combine different techniques (audio, video, pictures, icons, storytelling)

The ability to adapt anything in the timeline the way you want (overlap, animate, enter and exit settings)

Able do download into film, so you can combine it with material made in other tools

It is fast, no issues with waiting long to save the work

Cons: Maybe one thing I would like to be added is to be able to save powtoons online in folders and be able to change the order of powtoons displayed in the "my powtoons" page.

Overall: If you need to create a lot in little time with high quality results, this is a great tool!

Pros: Powtoon adds a unique presentation experience that your clientele might not otherwise see. There is a free version to try with Powtoon that offers insight into what it is capable of doing. They have their own characters and images to add and you are able to add your own images and voice-overs, too.

Pros: I only used the free version of this software, but it was simple to use, gave lots of robust cartoon options, and was quick to get started. And, unlike a lot of other "cartoon" services out there - these ones actually look professional and interesting. Lots of music options, and styles - along with themes that make the design process flow fairly smoothly.

Cons: My biggest con with PowToons was that it was rigid in the ability to edit/customize music to be in sync with the cartoon. If you are used to editing on a FinalCut, this software may drive you a little crazy. The drag and drop options are nice, but also limit in the preciseness you can achieve.

Overall: A nice cartoon explainer video, that I could create with no programming knowledge.

Pros: Powtoon has a lot of great features to offer. You are able to customize your Powtoons by using your own voice-over. They also have a lot of already pre-made "items" to add into your Powtoons if you are being rushed for time.

Cons: They are time consuming to make if you want it to look good.

Overall: A great alternative to having a creative presentation.

Pros: I have not come across anything like powtoon before. Very unique when it comes to creating presentations. Allows you to grab the attention of anyone you are presenting to. It is very customizable and has a lot of templates as well. You can create a cartoon presentation which is different from your typical PowerPoint presentations. Good to make a lasting impression.

Cons: Nothing, great software that allows me to make affective presentations.

Overall: Good software to use for creating unique presentations.

Pros: I love letting my students use Powtoon for projects. The students can use their imagination and be creative when making presentations or Public Service Announcements. I just let them learn through play. Sometimes the student that struggles with PowerPoint becomes inspired with Powtoon. I'm always amazed at how quickly they learn to manipulate the animations and transitions without my assistance.

Cons: There is a learning curve with this, some students adapt quickly others may struggle. When using free version have students use only free materials otherwise they cannot publish it properly

Overall: Let's kids Imagination run wild, be creative.

Pros: As an editor and graphic animator, I found in Powtoon a perfect tool to develop and animate dynamic, modern and very attractive videos in a fraction of the time it would take to do it with conventional animation tools. The app has a HUGE animated elements data bate, which also gets updated constantly. You can start your video from scratch or use the templates available for you... You can even upload your own videos or images and use them in the videos... Your imagination is the limit!

Cons: Only one thing to say... As many other online video tools, working with a lot of resources and heavy projects can make the page crash or go reaaaally slow... Event though the progress usually gets saved, it annoying to loose precious minutes reloading....

I think this software will replace alot of the current presentation softwares in the next 5 years

Cons: The only thing I would change is to add a Text to Voice feature for the videos. I would love to be able to type my script and import it to Powtoons and some great Computer voice from the UK do all of the talking for me.

Overall: A wonderful tool for creating instructional videos and very easy to use and the end users love the quality of the videos.

It's easy to learn how to use and is updated often so new options become available. With its own music I don't have to worry about sourcing copyright free music to use. The free version is good enough to create short videos and simple content.

Cons: It can take a while to upload content and images.

It offers a lot of animated cartoons which is very helpful in showing your intention and objective in the video you are making. It is also easy to use.

Cons: What I like least about powtoon is that you cannot download the video output if you are only using free trial. Nonetheless, it is fine because you can access it through youtube.

Pros: We often like to create teasers for the projects we are creating which we can use to post on social media or our content sites. Powtoon proved to be user-friendly and allows you to create animated videos with different templates and music to choose from. I must say that this is a more sophisticated program than just using basic PowerPoint. This program opened my eyes because sometimes you can get stuck on your own creation that you forget there are other ways to design. Our teaser videos proved to be successful and kept our viewers engaged. I plan to use this again for our future campaigns.

Cons: I haven't encountered problems or issues with this software, but it this software only applies to specific needs like video content or teasers like what I used it for. It worked well for me.

It is a great platform with amazing templates and clip arts which are really cute and lets me make a pure educational video for kids. Also I can post the video directly on my YouTube Channel through Powtoon.

Cons: Yes, it's Paid version is better. You got to pay or use watermarked videos.

Overall: Powtoon has a bit congested dashboard while creating videos but it's a great platform to create animated as well as professional videos.

I am a new customer to Powtoon and as a rookie animator, I find the product very user friendly.

Overall: I have created many videos with powtoon for my students, since educational animated videos are very efficient to transmit knowledge and promote learning in students.

Pros: I was introduced to Powtoons in class when I was given an assignment that required a short presentation along with it. As someone who does not have a lot of time to put together large complicated presentations, Powtoons was perfect for me to use in that situation. The software is free and has plenty of ready-made templates that allow you to put together a great looking presentation quickly.

Cons: If you are looking for presentation software to put together an impressive business proposal, I would not recommend Powtoons. They do offer Pro and Business accounts that allow downloads and remove the watermark at the end of the presentation. Also, as a paid user, you do have access to more templates and features, but for the price, you should consider using another more extensive presentation software.

Powtoon described their Control panel option so well that i didn't have to ask or learn anything outside powtoon. SO The Most amazing thing about Powtoon is: Powtoon is too easy to manage & work with.

Cons: I liked the design of Powtoon Dashboard, Editing Panel. The environment is super friendly & funny.

Pros: Powtoon is a creative alternative to the normal presentation mold. They can be somewhat comical with their cartoon nature, but there are ways to make them seem a lot more professional. You are able to add your own images into the creation of a PowToon, which is a huge plus in my book.

Cons: There are a lot of features associated with PowToon. Since there are so many features you may be looking around a bit to find what you are actually looking for. In the end though when you are an expert with PowToon you can create some pretty amazing presentations.

Pros: Powtoon has tons of customization options, elements, and templates. You can edit pretty much everything - You can even edit characters to have them move the way you want them to, creating custom animation.

Cons: There are so many features and tools available that the full studio can be a little overwhelming to learn and it's not super quick to find your way around. The tool's also a bit laggy and slow.

Overall: If you need super customized, more professional looking videos, Powtoon is a good option. But if you need a super quick basic video, it's not the easiest or fastest tool to use so I usually use a different tool for those. I don't have a background in design or video editing, but I think Powtoon might be better for users who do - or those who have a lot of time to spend on learning a new tool.

Pros: Powtoon gives enables you to fairly easily incorporate videos into your marketing. Whatever type of video you're wanting to create (whiteboard, animated, live, mixed media, etc.), you can probably do it with Powtoon.

Cons: There is a little bit of learning curve needed to be able to quickly put your videos together. Also, if you use the free version, it has Powtoon's branding on your video. And, if you want to get rid of their branding, you have to pay for at least a year up front.

Pros: Powtoon gets away from the normal presentation of just slides. It's a fun way to integrate some animation into the presentation. You are able to record your own voice to put into the videos as well.

Cons: The free version is limited, but gives a nice idea of what it has to offer.

Pros: Love that when I have a question, I can email them and they respond very quickly. They go above and beyond. It is easy to teach yourself, but the tutorials are also great. My daughter has created a few of them herself, and she is 10 years old. You can customize to anything you need it to be. Love the option to do voice over or music. Incredibly user friendly. Cannot say enough awesome things about this program.

Cons: NOTHING

Overall: Cannot say enough good things about this software. Super fun to create videos, it is not the norm, hold clients' attention. They give great advice and techniques to help you make the best PowToon. Templates are awesome.

Pros: I use PowToon to create animated marketing videos because it is simple and has a wide variety of templates. It also offers a unique style for presentations that is lively than the usual slideshows

Cons: The application has crashed several times forcing me to restart it and lose some progress on work that I was doing. This has happened only a few times

Overall: Powtoon does not require animation expertise to learn and use. Would definitely recommend for novice animators

Pros: That they really do allow you to create a quality animated video on a freemium plan. For how high quality the platform is overall, PowToon does not need to offer this, however the fact that they do just goes to show they are about the user and not just about making money.

Cons: Nothing really, I mean I wish you could pull the PowToon branding off the freemium plan, but that's just wishing on my end.

Overall: Animated video creation on a budget.

Comments: I've used powtoon to make website videos, digital advertisements, story-lines, and other presentations. The platform makes it very easy to create animated videos with a large selection of objects and people, but also allows you to upload your own artwork, giving you a lot of flexibility to create a video around your style. I wish they had features to allow you to change the timing of transitions, but they constantly roll out upgrades to their service, so I'm optimistic they will improve the features as time goes on.

Cons: My slides keep just disappearing into thin air. I save constantly, but when I go back in, one or two slides are missing, I recreated them, and I go back in and a different one is missing. And this just wasn't a one time thing. It's happened many times, and I've contacted supported and they tell me things like "clear your browser cache". No way! This is a bug, and I have better uses for my time!!!

Pros: Powtoon has a variety of diverse characters. I really appreciate that feature. That's where a lot of other similar software fall short. There are a myriad of characters to choose from that are representative of familiarity.

Cons: Powtoon's software is free for a short time. After that period, you are asked to pay and pricing is a bit hefty. If this is what you do all day, make presentations, then it may be worth it. There are other options available that are a bit cheaper and provides similar results.

Cons: The free version is very limited. You can do a lot of cool things with the paid version, but the quality is pretty low on the free version, and maybe not even worth it if using in a professional capacity.

Pros: It is extremely easy to create an account to log in to this free service. Someone without skills in design or animation can fairly easily make an animated presentation. There is a helpful video tutorial upfront walking you through the basic steps. It offers an array of canned templates to choose from so you can simply plug in the information you wish to share.

Cons: Ultimately the formatting options are limited and it would likely not be satisfying for someone who possesses animation and / or design skills.
