Review Google Slides

8.4Excellent
Review your slides, sync between all devices, completely free
Too few features
Google Slides for Android gives you access to any Google or Powerpoint slides you have stored on Google Drive, and lets you sync them up in a very helpful cloud-based sort of way. You can choose whether to also store files on your device, so that you’ll still guarantee access to them when you’re offline.
While it opens both Powerpoint and Google presentations, and displays them clearly with the design you created, and allow you to insert new slides with that same design; there are not any features at this stage for designing the slides themselves. You can play around with font colours, and shapes, but there aren’t any slide templates to choose from. However, you could overcome this issue simply by saving some templates into Google Drive.
Google Slides for Android is a great way to make some quick slides on the move, or to review a presentation before giving it. It doesn’t yet offer support for Chromecast, so that you could output the presentation straight to a TV with a Chromecast dongle. You can do this with desktop versions of Google Slides, so it surely will come at some point. If you hold down in presentation mode, you get a little “laser pointer” that you can drag around, which is quite neat – though right at the moment it’s still unlikely you would give a presentation off your phone.
The near future looks something like that though; your phone or tablet as a presentation aid. But with a world that is very much tied to VGA projectors, and flash drive fumbling, it’s still unclear how this is going to be mediated. I see a lot of potential in Google Slides. It’s certainly a winner in terms of being a free way to work on and view your slides, from all your devices, with an online backup. Perfect for a bit of pre-presentation panic.
