Apple Keynote makes it easy to create stunning and memorable presentations! Easily create gorgeous presentations with the all-new Keynote, featuring powerful yet easy-to-use tools and dazzling effects that will make you a very hard act to follow.

The Theme Chooser lets you skim through an impressive collection of 30 new and updated Apple-designed themes. Once you've chosen the perfect canvas for your presentation, simply replace the placeholder text and graphics with your own words and images. Easy-to-use tools let you add tables, charts, shapes, photos, and videos to slides--and bring it all to life with cinematic animations and transitions that look as though they were created by your own special effects team. Animate your data with new interactive column, bar, scatter, and bubble charts.

Use iCloud to keep your presentations up to date across all your devices. You can instantly share a presentation using just a link, giving others the latest version and the ability to edit it directly with Keynote for iCloud beta from using a Mac or PC browser. With Keynote for macOS, you have all the tools you need to make an amazing presentation quickly and easily.

Features and Highlights

Powerful creative tools
Picture a dazzling presentation. Then make it happen with easy‑to‑use visual tools. Drop in photos or video. Add reflections and picture frames. Punch up your data with interactive charts. Tie it all together with cinema‑quality transitions. And preview all the action live, right on your canvas. The app is built to handle it. Spectacularly.

Designed for simplicity
Right from the beginning, the app sets the stage for a compelling presentation. A clean, intuitive interface puts all the tools you need front and center. And it’s built to harness the 64‑bit performance of OS X Yosemite. So everything runs smoothly — no matter how big or graphically rich.

Impressive charts
When it comes to explaining data, a chart is worth a thousand words. Choose from column, bar, pie, scatter, bubble charts, and more. Use animation to add visual impact. And make your charts interactive to focus attention on important stages of the story. The effect is huge, but the effort isn’t.

Keynote everywhere
You don’t work in just one place on just one device. The same goes for the tool. Presentations created on your Mac look exactly the same on your iPhone or iPad and vice versa. And it’s effortless to move your work from one device to another. You can even access your presentations from the web, share them, and collaborate with others in real time.

Easy to share
The app makes it easy to share your show with a cast of dozens. Right from the toolbar, you can send a copy of your file. Or share a link to your presentation with anyone you want. So nobody has to wrangle lots of copies. You can even work on files that are stored with third-party services. And presentations can be sent via services such as Gmail or Dropbox. It makes connecting with your team — and ultimately your audience — a lot smoother.

Microsoft PowerPoint friendly
Teaming up with someone who uses Microsoft PowerPoint? The tool makes it a great working relationship. You can save the documents as PowerPoint files. Or import and edit PowerPoint documents right in the app. Most popular PowerPoint features are supported, too. Now it’s no problem to work on the same project. Even if you use different apps.

Note: Requires Mac computer with an Intel processor.
