I am proficient with using markdown alongside Pandoc and reveal.js so I can roll my own free workflow that does what Deckset does. BUT I still happily pay for this app. The reasons are that the integrated design utility of a flexible preview, quick style changes and the presentation interface, alongside "managing" my presentations is worth the price alone. More generally, writing presentations in Markdown really does improve content, compared to the time wasted fussing and fiddling with layout in Keynote or Powerpoint. I like that layout is restricted (figures/videos have a set number of positions, cannot create a slide with lots of images), enforcing consistency. Strongly recommended.

Love the latest update which adds tables. This has become a very powerful presentation tool and the fact that you can control it all via Markdown is really neat. The selection of themes is really good and I really appreciate the colour options. It makes a very good alternative to something like Keynote or PowerPoint.

I am not changing my mind on my review (5 stars), after using it for the first time at a conference this weekend. It delivered. Just a wish list: 1. Full support for MultiMarkdown or 2. At least support for tables. Right now I take snap shots of tables I created or create in Keynote or elsewhere and insert as figures. Not horrible, but a full MMD integration would take care of that added step, or just give more options.

I downloaded a trial version and this software is really very nice for presentations. It is flexible, easy to work in, has a simple GUI and is much better than using propriatary software like Prezi that requires one to buy into their subscription scheme or loose your presentations. I would really like to see: more support for embedded video & recordings a button for for quick toggling between a single slide view and the overall thumbnail view

I really like Deckset. I've been using it regularly since May 2014 when it was first released and since then I have used it to prepare 29 technical presentations, the latest just this morning. I find it helps me focus on content and less on formatting. I *enjoy* preparing presentations with Deckset. I still revert to Keynote for the very few presentations when I absolutely must have complete control over formatting - for example, if I need to annotate figures or plots, or squish several figures together, etc. etc. (I have also sometimes done this sort of thing in Keynote, exported the result as PDF, and then used that inside Deckset.) Like the previous reviewer, it has made me revisit my approach to designing presentations, and the fact that one can simply switch between its impressive themes at any point makes it easy to test which fulfils the purpose of the presentation best. (I tend to favor simple themes with either a white or black background - they tend to work best for technical presentations.) My one significant quibble - that I sometimes just absolutely need to reduce a font size to fit something on one slide - has been removed in the current release, which allows autoscaling of slide content to make it fit. A really nice program.

This is an amazing piece of software for people that are into plain text and markdown and value content over formatting chaos. Yet, Deckset has helped me re-think how to design slides. The templates are gorgeous and the flexibility of the app is actually quite surprising, especially with the latest update.
