Focus on WildPresenter

If you have used any of the PowerPoint to Flash converter programs, here is something different. Like most other programs WildPresenter, a product from Wildform imports your PowerPoint presentation, but it doesn't export it to Flash straightaway. In fact, it provides an environment not too different from PowerPoint that lets you fine-tune your presentation before you export to Flash. During the process, you can preview your presentations. The Flash output is much smaller than other applications.

Check out the full review.

In addition, here's an Indezine exclusive: a quick conversation with Jonathan Blank of Wildform.

Here are more conversations:

Rob Griffiths of MacWorld compares PowerPoint with Apple Keynote.
