Emaze is a tool that allows users to create and share presentations both online and offline, incorporating a variety of features not found on more traditional presentation tools.
The digital presentation market has been dominated in recent years by Microsoft’s PowerPoint. When one company dominates a market, features are limited by whatever that company wishes to include. Emaze is seeking to end that trend by creating a powerful, online presentation tool that packs more features into its easy-to-use interface. One of the main reasons why Emaze is a better presentation tool is because it works across several different devices and operating systems, including tablets, PCs, Macs and smart phones. Although the application is primarily based online, it’s also accessible offline, including on mobile devices. It supports HTML5 and CSS3, as well as integrated hyperlink support. This makes for a fluid design easy to navigate by anyone following along with a presentation (and it keeps things simple for you, if you’re the one presenting).
Emaze also allows users to collaborate on presentations with others online. This is especially useful for students working on a group project, or a team of coworkers that needs to spend extra time working on an important presentation. Emaze presentations are also unique in that they’re easily sharable. Any presentation created on the application can be shared on Facebook or via email. The presentations can also be embedded on any other website, a truly unique feature that makes the site stand apart from its competitors, which are limited to their own viewing function. Emaze has a variety of sample presentations on its site that demonstrate the applications various functions, including a presentation about “Fraud Awareness” that makes intriguing use of the application’s 3D capabilities.
While something like “Fraud Awareness” might be boring to the average viewer, anything can be made interesting if its presented in the right way. Emaze assures that that happens. If you’re a professor, another professional, or a type of person that just likes giving presentations (that might be weird, but I can’t blame you), I’d highly recommend using Emaze. It’s truly a worthwhile contender to the more traditional, expensive presentation applications.
