PowerPoint 2010

A presentation tool in the Microsoft Office suite designed to help users create informative slides that can contain text, graphics, movies and similar objects. PowerPoint presentations can be viewed as printouts, directly on a computer, or via video projectors, and are frequently used in business and educational settings for situations like lectures, meetings and product briefings.

PowerPoint presentations can also be viewed, edited and shared in the cloud with Microsoft's Office Web Apps, a collection of free online companions to Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

PowerPoint 2010 is the current release for Windows operating systems, while PowerPoint 2011 is the latest release for Apple's Mac OS X. New features in the latest releases of PowerPoint include direct video embedding and editing, Smart Guides, a new Reading View, a Broadcast Presentation feature, and new built-in transitions and animations effects.
