Why would you do such a thing?!?!

There are all kinds of great tools out there for prototyping software, like Sketch,,, and Invision, just to name a few. So why would you want to use PowerPoint?

  • It has a ton of features that are dead-easy to use.
  • Chances are, it’s already on your computer.
  • You can turn any of the above into clickable links, allowing users to navigate through your presentation like a website or mobile app.
  • You can add all kinds of sweet transitions and animations with no sweat.

Step 1: Know your aspect ratio.

  • Upload it to Dropbox or Google Drive
  • Put it on a company shared drive
  • Add a download link on your website
