Want to quickly share presentations online and get feedback on them? Reel is a handy web app that creates presentations out of PPT, PDF and Word files. It is completely free and does not require any registration, requiring you to simply upload your files and generate beautiful presentations. PowerPoint presentations simply gets arranged according to slides, whereas Word and PDF files are treated as images that you can reorder in the presentation. Reel generates a URL link and an embed code of the HTML5 presentations, which can then be used on your website or blog. Furthermore, it offers users with Poll Results, which may be used to vote on presentations and view the results in order to get feedback.
Reel has a slick, easy-to-use interface. To start off, just click Upload and browse for your PPT, PDF or Word files.
Once you’ve uploaded a file, you will be able to see the thumbnails of your slides in the Edit & Arrange category. Reel allows you to set a name and description for each slide and presentation. Please note that files cannot be edited once they’re saved, so be careful when you make any changes.
Saving the file displays a report with Poll Results. These consist of up/down vote buttons, whcih users can use to vote for each slide. The Poll Results page also consists of a Sort Slides By option, where available options are Slide Order, Most Votes, Most Up Votes and Most Down Votes. Click Start Preso to begin the slideshow, during which forward/backward buttons are displayed on both sides for navigation between slides.
Reel also generates a embed code that you can use on your website or blog. In addition to that, it also generates a link that allows your to share the presentation on popular social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook.
