Rich App for Rich Presentations

Posted by Sravan | October 7, 2008 .

SlideRocket is a rich internet application in every sense of the phrase: rich utility, rich features, and rich look. It has been touted by the Flex community as the first and the best Flex app for a serious and a large-scale utility.

It is one of the competitors in the growing SaaS market of online office tools, with a special taste and talent for aesthetics. Users can create presentations online using SlideRocket’s Flex-based website or offline using its AIR app. Until recently, it was held in private beta for a few months and entered public beta towards the end of last month.

Being an online app, it has a host of possibilities not imaginable with traditional tools like Microsoft Powerpoint. The default plus is the portability. To keep users going at places without an internet connection, there is the SlideRocket offline player. Online, users can integrate web content, share and collaborate with colleagues, and publish on personal blogs. Features like SlideRocket Marketplace and Asset Library let users push, explore and get the maximum in creating presentations. For uniformity, SlideRocket allows importing your old powerpoint presentations as well.

An especially nice set of features is its Presentation Analytics analogous to Youtube Insight, including the newest feature Hotspots. Using this, you can check user statistics of their presentations down to slide-level.

Check out their demos and sign up to start using the RIA right away.

Now calling itself “the best online presentation software”, the day is not very far away for SlideRocket to become “the best presentation software”. Then what? I take it for granted that it will enter the rest of the office tools market. “When?” is the only question.
