Presentation resources by Microsoft



The newest member of the Office family, Sway is an excellent presentation platform which takes presentations way beyond the realm of simple PowerPoint slides. Sway is a presentation web app with a plethora of resources for making presentations online. You can even present your ‘Sway’ using nothing more than an Internet browser and access your presentations on the go.

While Office Online already provides PowerPoint Online (web app) for making PowerPoint slides using a browser, Sway is arguably more feature rich and flexible, with connectivity options for various famous platforms. When making your ‘Sways’ you can fetch content not only via Bing or YouTube but also from unconventional resources like Facebook and Twitter.

You can find out more about Sway from our detailed review of Sway.
