PowerPoint 2013 is a fine-tuned version of a seasoned productivity app. As before, the program steps you through the presentation-building process. It now sports an updated Start screen with a variety of new themes and color schemes. The enhanced Presenter View makes it easier to zoom in on a diagram, chart, or other detail that you want to emphasize to your audience. And the Navigation Guide lets you switch slides, even move out of sequence, from a grid that you can see but your audience can't.
PowerPoint's collaboration tools allow business colleagues to work from different PCs to build a single presentation. The Comments section makes it easy for participants to post and track their opinions too. And presentations are saved online by default to either SkyDrive or SharePoint.
