    • Zoho Show is more polished graphically than Google Presentation allows you to show slides and live and online, through the tool Zoho Meeting.

    3. SlideRocket is a new online program to create graphic presentations of superior quality. You can register a free account that allows you to save files up to 250 MB.

    4. 280 Slides is the online service to create and share Powerpoint presentations and slides style. You can also upload ppt or pptx files created with PowerPoint and import them into 280 Slides. The web application is really well done and probably better than the same Microsoft Powerpoint, for image quality, opportunities for customization and personalize, for a variety of effects to be applied. 280 Slides is can also integrate with Slideshare, the PowerPoint viewer that works online like Youtube.
