Pros: It's simple. It's straightforward. Haiku Deck makes it easy for people to put together a professional looking presentation that isn't loaded with text and images. Its simplicity is what makes it a good addition to your tech toolbox. This is great for teaching when you want to gauge students understanding of a topic quickly and don't want them over-inundating their presentations with videos, mass text, etc. I like the professional images that are included or being able to search within their database. I also like some of the added features: being able to share across multiple platforms and social media, as well as the option to allow others to reuse your presentation/template.

Cons: The free version doesn't really get you much other than building 1 deck. And a lot of features etc are pay for. So you can't really get a good feel for the product and all it can do with 1 deck (presentation). The ability to add videos/youtube is also only available with the paid version as well as the ability to add audio which you can get with Google Slides built in or even a program like Pear Deck/Nearpod.

Overall: It makes for a great quick way for students to show some understanding but doesn't afford a lot of maneuverability. I liked using it as an exit ticket with students- Pecha Kucha style.

Pros: This app is extremely easy to use. It is ideal for any teacher, business man or professional in general, interested in doing engaging presentation for a sophisticated audience. In a way, its slick interface and innovative display succeeds in breaking the mold in terms of presentation making. Haiku Deck will allow you to select interesting and engaging pictures and short sentences for expressing your ideas. As a teachers, I find it very useful for doing simple presentations in a short period of time. Therefore, I don't need to invest a lot of money doing presentations on pp or other more complex to use softwares.

Cons: Nothing negative to say about this app,I really think it delivers what it promises, the available fonts are adequate, as well as the features and/or options.

Overall: Excellent features for doing engaging presentations, very simple to use. For teachers or professionals aiming to produce professional-looking presentations.

Pros: HaikuDeck is a great, reliable, and user-friendly slide deck creating program for teachers and students alike. Simple and clean slide decks are created with minimal effort due to the user-friendly interface and ease of access to resources (images, charts, etc.). Personally, I enjoy using this product for student creations. Students can create vocabulary cards for personal study or well-designed posters for projects. Although I used it primarily in science classes, I think it's a versatile tool that can be used across content areas, as well as in the business spectrum for marketing, branding, etc. highly recommend!

Cons: I would not say this is a complaint, but Haiku Deck does limit what you are capable of doing. You do not start with a blank slide and limitless potential. You cannot edit to your heart's desire, so you are limited to some extent. However, this decision, I think is justified because they desire for users to create clean, simple slide decks. In order to do so, they limit graphic design opportunities.

Pros: Haiku Deck has been very easy to use and allows me to make presentations much more easily. The editing options are varied more than some of the more well known softwares such as Microsoft or Apple. The available styles stand out more as well which is quite ideal.

Cons: I haven't run into any negative experience thus far with this software. It's worked exactly as expected, if not better.
