Review Microsoft PowerPoint Preview

Jay Feldman
Lots of settings, various features, simple design
awkward, lags a bit
Microsoft PowerPoint Preview for Android offers you most all the power and functionality of the desktop version to this powerhouse office suite, all for the rock bottom price of absolutely free. So go ahead and create all the stunning presentations you want on your mobile gizmo, you’ve literally got nothing to lose.
Microsoft PowerPoint Preview presents in landscape, and if you have a Microsoft Office or OneDrive account, you can use your login credentials to access your files and save new ones to the cloud so everything will be available to you no matter what device you’re working on. The app also features Dropbox integration, which is a nice touch. The presentation very much looks like the full desktop program and they did a really good job at making everything feel seamless. There’s a host of ready-made templates for you to use, or you can just start with a blank document. If you’re new to the app, I suggest starting out with a template, just so you can see all the app is capable of.
The app functions well throughout, but I found it rather clumsy and awkward at first, largely because it just feels weird to not have a touchpad or mouse along with a full keyboard to work with. Sure, you could add those accessories to your tablet or phone, but I’m of the mind that if you’re trying to turn your tablet into a laptop, then why not just use a laptop. You can do all the text formatting, indents, bullets and all that good stuff, just like on the desktop version, only here, it feels clumsy and more time consuming. Personally, I’d only use this for fast markups or corrections and would reserve the heavy lifting for a device that’s better suited for the job.
Microsoft PowerPoint Preview is certainly worth checking out and adding to your roster of apps, I just find it all to be a bit cumbersome.
