We couldn’t resist (Sorry Apple).

By Mitch Grasso on January 6, 2009

At this morning’s MacWorld conference, Apple announced some pretty cool new transitions for Keynote, their presentation software. Credit where credit is due, they are pretty awesome and make simple animations a breeze to do.

However, we couldn’t just let a good idea just live on the Mac desktop so we whipped out our own versions of a couple of their new transitions this afternoon. Here’s a preview:

We’ll push these out to SlideRocket in a couple of weeks for everyone to use. Of course, this is one of the unsung advantages of web applications – we can iterate new versions easily and quickly. You probably won’t see a new version of Apple Keynote until 2010.

BTW, if you haven’t voted for us in the last 24 hours for the Crunchies, we’d love it if you could do it one more time. Thanks!

Mitch

    Also, I didn’t see how one edits in the cloud with the new iwork.com

    Really? You’re actively proud of your lack of creativity and the speed at which you copied their features?

    VM Ware seems ill prepared to nruutre a customer facing startup into hyper growth. It appears all their existing product lines are infrastructure and internal technologies. Is this another case of Cisco buying and killing the Flip. No, actually Cisco already has consumer divisions that have robust marketing expertise. I admit to not knowing much about VMWare (but there in lies the rub I’m a consumer) and perhaps there is synergy here that is not obvious. I am a very satisfied SlideRocket customer and a champion of the service but worried this is the beginning of the end.
