The best case scenario for Apple Keynote is that you get it built-in with any MacBook, so you don't have to download anything and you're good to go for any sort of presentation. One more thing which I really admire about Keynote is that it has really cool animation style, You can literally create some basic video content using Keynote. Animations are also very easy to use, so If you want to have more animations you can just use Keynote instead of Powerpoint. Keynote has never been less appropriate until you have Windows as your Operating System. Another time where Powerpoint takes an edge is when you have to use a lot of features.

Piktochart is great for designing infographics that require detailed information to be presented in a visually pleasing way. The fact that infographics are automatically split into segments, or 'blocks' helps with designing professional looking content quickly. There is also a wide range of templates that can be used so there's no need to start from scratch.

Cons
Apple
  • The way you adjust timings for builds and transitions was a bit counterintuitive for me. Once I got the hang of it, it was fine. The timings don't work the same as they do in PowerPoint. So if you are a PowerPoint user, that may be something you have to adjust to when you switch to Keynote.
  • I feel that adding images can be clunky when working with image placeholders. Apple Keynote forces you to use the Photo app to replace image placeholders.

While I don't use Keynote for every slide deck project need (software preference often is dictated by what the client has access to), I will promote KeyNote as the preferred format if the client is software-agnostic. The drag and drop feature is incomparable with other software options — a feature I've come to love and miss when I am required to use another program. As previously mentioned, the smooth interface and master template user-friendliness also helps raise Keynote above their competition.

Piktochart
Piktochart is cheaper than Canva, and better for building long-form infographics that require a large amount of data to be presented visually. It is also much easier to learn for new team members than Pixlr
