Summary – Zoho Show Presentation Software

Zoho Show both free and paid versions still comes short in terms of features and functionalities offered by its competitors. Compatibility with most Microsoft Office files makes it a good alternative to the software giant’s presentation software. However, it does not offer something new and if you’re going the premium route sticking to Microsoft PowerPoint can be the more logical choice. But for those whose job description do not require professionally prepared presentations, Zoho Show’s free software is more than capable of delivering on its promises.
