Enhance Presentations with Toolbox for Keynote Mac App

Making the perfect presentation is not always intuitive. It takes a lot of creativity and time to piece together content that delivers the information the way you want it to look, flow, and be arranged on each page.

That’s where a powerful toolset comes in handy. If you use Keynote on your Mac to create presentations, and you love all that has to offer, you can enhance your experience with Keynote by downloading Toolbox for Keynote.

We all know that Keynote provides a superb development environment for presentation creation, but it does lack in variety and options for different layouts, backgrounds, images, and productivity sets. Toolbox for Keynote builds on what Keynote already has and takes it up a few notches.

Enhancements include a multitude of clipart images; preset themes and layouts with built in maps, charts and graphics to match; infographics that are clear, concise, and customizable; small graphics that are customizable, like bullets, patterns, frames, and characters; illustrations like doodles, badges, icons, and more.

What is really cool about Toolbox is that you can download it for free, check out what it has to offer, and then pick and choose the pieces you like? If you want the infographics, you can purchase that product set. If you only need the clipart images with editing feature, you can purchase Clipart Prime. If you like all of the enhancement product sets, you can purchase the full bundle, and save lots of money. The added bonus to the full bundle is that you get free updates for everything for the lifetime of the product.

I fell for the full bundle because there were so many options to choose from and it made sense to pay less for more!

After I made the in-app purchase, I sat down to play around with a practice presentation. Normally, you would open Keynote and choose a theme. Without Toolbox, there were 30 themes to choose from. With Toolbox, I had over 100 different types of themes at my disposal! I was blown away.

I chose my theme and started adding some basic information on each screen. Then I went back and decided on the enhancements I wanted to add. There were so many to choose from:

  • Over 700 different clipart images
  • More than 100 item sets that include doodles, icons, and more
  • More than 300 graphic styles for bullets, frames, patterns, and characters
  • Over 2100 types of diagrams, data visualization sets, charts, flags, and maps

Initially, I was overwhelmed, but I am sure that as projects come in, I will find great use for the abundant choices offered. What I really liked was that you can get new ideas by just browsing.  I thought I knew what I wanted to add, but when I looked at the different options that Toolbox offered, my mind went in a totally different direction.

The only thing I could possibly offer as an improvement to the app is to offer smaller bundles. I like the full bundle, but I can see a lot of folks who use a certain smaller grouping of product sets getting excited about being able to get a discount on a trio.

I can see in-app sales boosted by offering these smaller packages, as a full on $49.99 purchase can be daunting. I love my full bundle and I get lost in the app just browsing and trying things out. I don’ t have a project on hand to create, so I am doing my best to immerse myself in Toolbox for Keynote so I am at the ready when I get the next deliverable! This app is also available for iOS.

Spread the love
