    Pros
    They keep finding ways to make it faster and easy to make explainer videos. They have an outstanding library of tools and elements you can use to really create outstanding videos.

    It is extremely easy to use and allows me to create amazing videos and presentations for my business. The ready-made templates are very helpful and allow me to create videos that pop.

    As reality is like this, the software is one of the best solutions to make nice, creative, up-to-date presentations for school, ads, business information.

    Cons
    My biggest complaint (as I mentioned above in Cons) is that the tools are corrupted by the upsell items for Pro. Just don't show me Pro+ features if I've already paid for Pro.

    Somewhat exporting function is bit difficult to user. And some features are difficult to understand.

    Interactive Animated Presentations

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Interactive storytelling in presentations took shorter time than before.

    Pros

    Powtoon is simple, interactive and provides all basic functions for motion graphics to be used as a presentation.

    Cons

    It's web-based to due which browser got very heavy when working on larger projects.

    attractive and professional slides and videos!

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    I save a lot of time and effort doing slides on this software and looks so professional!

    Pros

    I don't need to have programming skill to make animations and professional videos, is easy and instinctive to use.

    Cons

    I wish there were more avatars and more variety of animations and the option to adjust and share at tiktok.

    Overall, Powtoon achieves what it sets out to do. I just wish there were more editing capabilities.

    Pros

    Powtoon is very easy to learn and the templates are great to get you started. The media library is full of great assets to create a video quickly and the image library is robust. The software is very intuitive and easy to use.

    Cons

    I am frustrated with the lack of sound editing you can do on Powtoon - for example, you cannot edit voiceovers once you have recorded them. You also cannot add music to the first three slides, you have to add them separtately, which makes continuity an issue. I would love to see a way to expand the timeline so you can edit on a granular level.

    Powtoon

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Not great they say they would be creating new content and we have had the service for 6 months with absolutely no content updates

    Pros

    You can put multiple layers of text on one slide and customize where it will show up.

    Cons

    They have absolutely zero content. They say they have marketing videos but they are only 10 seconds long and random. We no longer use this software.

    Did the job - but ended on a very poor note

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    My final experience with them soured me on the product and company and thus I cannot recommend. Pick another animation software where they'll at least respond.

    Pros

    I needed to find software on short order for a volunteer product I was doing. I was able to learn it pretty quickly and product something to help the organization out. It was fairly easy to learn and I was able to make a decent animated video in a weekend.

    Cons

    I hadn't used the software for like 6 months and wasn't sure I'd use again, but missed the window to cancel the renewal until it hit my credit card. I contacted the company right away to explain that I used it just for volunteering and ask for a refund. They could check my history to see I hadn't been using. Not only did they not refund me. They ghosted me. I emailed a second and third time, but they never even answered. As for the product itself, they mixed in elements that were not included on my plan with those that were, requiring me to backtrack in some cases export my video w/o upgrading. Many of the elements were too cartoony for my taste. The export limits were kind of confusing.
