Interactive storytelling in presentations took shorter time than before.

I have created dozens of videos for internal comms, advertising, recruiting and training. It has made my life so easy and with great reward and outcome.

Pros
This is a super simple app to create fun and vibrant communications pieces either with cartoons or video.

Cons
I think customer service could be much better. I don't think I've ever gotten ahold of a live person.

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.

I had had nothing but positive experiences from Powtoon. The software is amazing, the support is amazing and so are the people - some of whom I've met in person.

Pros
I have been using this software for 5 years to produce high quality, professional looking animated explainer videos. There are a lot of different character styles and assets style like 2D, whiteboard, infographic, live to choose from. They provide the too and it's open to your imagination. New features added constantly that make this software very versatile.

Cons
Some features need to be added - better timeline, ability to encase videos, camera motion for example.
