Good, Could be Better.

Well I’ve always enjoyed writing little books and things like that, but you see the problem with google slides is, well this is kind of hard to say but it doesn't represent something you would use as to write or draw due to bugs and things like that, im sure with all these little new updates etc. they will be fixed, but it just doesn't seem that way really, all the updates say bugs fixed and improvements and it really just seems like a throw off, I keep getting suggestions and auto correct from slides that are wrong and are up to me to fix, my pictures really don't seem to feel like uploading themselves and these problems have really been bugging me and i’m sure many other people can agree with this claim. anyways this rating was mostly complains but the app isn’t all that bad, of course like everything, it has it’s ups and downs, but it really is a great way to write and do things like homework and etc, with online school right around the corner im sure it will be useful. Thank you for reading my little rating, I hope it helps you.

Worst Google App I've Encountered So Far....

Like many students, I am required to use Google Slides for presentations. The website was working poorly; every time I opened it instead of bringing me to the home screen and allowing me to select any presentation I wanted, it brought me to a new "untitled presentation" with no way to access my old ones. Hoping it would work better, I downloaded the app. While it does allow me to access all of my presentations, it is glitchy and difficult to use. I have to click on a text box 2, 3, 4 times to get it to open. At this point, I'm almost completely convinced that there is a specific pattern of tapping required to edit text boxes. And forget replacing backgrounds or adding images- you can press that little "add" button no matter how much you want, it won't work. If I am the only one encountering these problems, perhaps it is my device (which is not very old or glitchy generally.) Still, other reviews seem to indicate frustration as far as the backgrounds go, and yet the developers of the app seem to ignore them. I gave it two stars because it used to work much better. What happened?

Transitions and Backgrounds

I honestly prefer Google products over most Microsoft, and Slides is a definite win, especially after seeing a mobile app. I took my iPad to school, prepared for the presentation, and I tapped around, seeing what all they had. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we have the “theme” option, but what about backgrounds? It’s kinda tiring looking up images, dragging them into slides, making it full size, sending to the back, and not helping your team all at once. Please add the “background” option. Also, since I begun Slides, I always tried my best to use my best format, honest opinion, and make them as interesting as possible. However, after looking around, I found I still couldn’t find yet another option- transitions. While yes, I agree that we need more, newer ones, we also need— well, the basic options on mobile. I can see them on my iPad during present, but I can’t find it. (If it’s there, please respond where.) Other than those, I’d say 5 stars! *****

Fun app just a few problems…

I have this app at school and at home, but there are a few problems. This is my favorite G suite app, but on mobile devices it won’t let me put backgrounds, I always have to put a gradient on the text, and stretch it. I also have friends that can’t spell so please let Grammarly in this suite. I’m very tired of correcting them :(. The font Pacifico is fine but on mobile it says it doesn’t work, so please fix that because it’s working fine. For images there’s a bug in the built in browser the images look cursed. The only images that work are the LGBTQ+ flags. Me, and my zoo partner Jason have to copy and paste images it’s so fun but annoying in the built in browser put better images. We needed red foxes but the foxes are costumes on the built in browser. The projects are done but I just wanted to say this.

Love it, but it can use some improvements.

I’m a teacher, and with this distance learning, I have been relying heavily on Google Slides to help me make interactive assignments. I just got off of Zoom with a student, whom I was trying to help for an hour because she said she couldn’t complete her work on Google Slides. I pulled the exact same assignment up on my iPad, and I discovered that I couldn’t type anything on the slide. My qwerty keyboard never appeared when I clicked on a text box nor when I created a text box. I have a keyboard set up to my iPad, which I discovered I could use to type on the document, but my student doesn’t, and she doesn’t know how to complete her assignment because of this. If this is a glitch or a fluke, can you please fix it? If we were just looking in the wrong place, please let me know so I can help my student. I don’t want this to be the norm when I assign work to my students.

Great! But...

I love this app. I use it on desktop first and it worked beautifully and I was really happy. I made a bunch of stuff whether I needed to or not. We get free time sometimes, so I’d normally go on slides and make something random. I was really happy, again, so downloaded it on my iPad at home. Again, worked amazing and I was happy. But the but comes in here. I downloaded on my iPhone and there are a few glitches. It just got me to my home screen mid type and I just lost a bunch of my progress. And I can’t move a small text box, I have to expand it one way and shrink the other. I’d appreciate if these small glitches are fixed, and it’s a little picky. But all in all, I recommend this to anyone and I love it!🦄

good app concept, but way too many bugs

This past year tons of students have been introduced to online school due to COVID-19. And if you are like me and you couldn’t afford a laptop but you happened to have an iPad, you just used that. At the start of quarantine I bought an attachable keyboard and I have done all of my work on it ever since. I have downloaded all of the replacement apps that I need for school on my iPad including Google Slides. This app is great and I love the way that it has been presented and the way that it works but there are too many things wrong with it. Sometimes it just freezes and I have to reset my whole iPad and other times I am not able to do simple actions such as copy and paste and save my work. This app needs to be worked on because it is absolutely horrible right now. I am coming to the end of my school year and I wish I had written a review earlier but I really hope that you guys and your developers give this app an update to fix everything that is wrong with this app. Thanks.

Be warned it is buggy

I had an extremely unnerving experience just now. I was experimenting with the app to create a slide with photos on my iPhone. First time so I didn’t really know what I was doing but I changed the background with a photo on my camera roll. Then, I deleted the photo, and that’s where it got weird. Instead of changing the photo background back into a white background, it replaced the background with the next photo in my camera roll. I deleted the slide and started again. This time I added a photo to the slide instead of changing the background. Out of nowhere it starts inserting pictures from my camera roll one after one rapid-fire. I shut down the app and removed it, but it looked as though 20-30 photos were inserted in the slide. When I checked the slide in Google drive, there was no photo there. I’ve never seen an app do that. And normally they would crash on there own, but it showed no signs of instability .

Performance

Everything about this app is very useful when it comes to creating a presentation for work or school. However, this app is very slow at opening documents even when using the latest phones and tablets. I have Gigabit connection so internet is not a problem. If you guys could optimize the app much more for performance and use 120hz of the iPad Pro that would be amazing. But for now I’d rather stick with PowerPoint for the performance. This app has become barely usable for someone like me (student). I tried to use it on my iPad so many times but it just irritates me so much that the magic keyboard does not have a lot of support here, the trackpad doesn’t even register on the app and PowerPoint does which is why I am switching to use it from now on. If you guys could legit add so much bug fixes that would help but in the mean time the term. “Free” is legit what you get from this app.

Amazing!!!😁

I love and prefer google apps over the Microsoft versions. Google slides and docs are much better than word!!! Although word has more options the google format is simpler. It is easier to share document and edit them with google. When ever o use word o have issues sending my work to friends and colleagues. But not with google it works every time! It also tells you if you type in the wrong email do you don’t have to worry about sending your work to a random person. You can also choose what the people you send your work to are aloud to edit!! In conclusion LOVE google it’s performance is flawless I highly recommend it!!!😀😀😀

Student work

This app has saved my life. As an 8th grader my teachers are transitioning us from more paper work to more digital work. The teachers are also having us do more presentations to “prepare us for public speaking” and before we had to sign user agreements as well as our parents. My dad originally wouldn’t because the agreement said we would have to be the ones paying for repairs. Since he didn’t sign I had to do everything on paper, including presentations and I can tell you I 100% prefer the occasional having to push a button more than once. I’m currently working on a pitch for my schools media arts program and with how much I’ve had to correct on my slides I am so happy it’s not on paper 😭

No flaws, it’s amazing!

With all of its features, google slides is great for presentations, and more! It’s has a variety of fonts, colors for words, bgs, transitions, backgrounds, pictures, and so much more! You can pick any background just by the “google search” feature for backgrounds, and pictures! You can also import pictures from your phone/ any mobile device, and you can also take your own photos right from the app! There’s soooo many more features for this app, but here are just some! Google slides, your amazing! (All of these same features and things apply to google slides on computers/laptops too! -Kendall 💕🐝✨

I love it!

This is such an amazing thing to use especially now since we are forced to do online school and most professors are putting us in groups so we don’t go through the semester alone. I like how everyone can use it and how simple it is to follow. All I wish is that there were more template options like powerpoint and if they did suggestions for the different slide when you add a picture like on powerpoint. This would be such an amazing tool and for that very reason, i know more people chose powerpoint and don’t mind putting in extra communication with their groups because of the lack of options with themes. This would truly put it over the top and then i’d give 5 stars

A student’s view of Google Slides

I rate this app 5 stars, but I’m a student, so I use apps like this all the time. When I found this app, I was kind of confused of what to do. After getting to play around with this app, I got used to it and I was enjoying it very much. I used it so much, whenever we needed it in school, so my teacher was becoming proud for me having my own device and using it ahead of time so I didn’t need to do it with the rest of the class and I had lots of free time. It’s all because my best friend recommended it to me. And she wouldn’t have found out about it If it weren’t have been made so, thanks for all the hard work on this app!

It’s very useful

This app is very great if it was not here I would of got detention this app allows me to type edit and much more thanks to this app when we are in online school and my laptop is not charged I use this iPad and this iPad does not allow me to type or edit it just makes me look at the slide nothing else but when I downloaded this app it has made me a perfect A on my test because sometimes we have test online and if this app did not exist I would got a F in my safe I really love this slides app and I say everyone that is using a phone or a tablet or a iPad they use this app

The insert line is garbage

The app is nice and really useful, but the insert line or scribble function makes you go back to your cursor every time you place a single line and that’s annoying. If I want to change the thickness or color of the line I should be able to do that before drawing the line, not after. Also the scribble function keeps trying to make my lines straighter and smoother which is nice, but it also makes me incapable of drawing certain simple things like the number three. The scribbles correction functions makes drawing corners or pointy bits pretty much impossible. Lines also end up shorter then I intend for them to be. But other than that, it’s cool.

PLEASE change its very confusing...

I like google slides, but I just can’t seem to find out how to change the background of my slides. It’s very confusing, and when I went to the help button it did nothing and wasn’t helpful. It says “To hold down on the bottom and go to the top right by the three dots, but the three little dots said nothing about changing my background.” There was no tab THAT SAID CHANGE BACKGROUND. Like WHY CAN”T YOU JUST MAKE A TAB THAT SAYS BACKGROUND. On another note , WHERE can find out how to change the size on the text box. Like why would I want the SMALLEST BOX IN THE WORLD. One more thing why do have have to either take a photo or have one saved in my camera roll. Like on the computer you can just search up pictures, like that would save more time and SPACE. -Lana

This is awesome, but it needs one more thing...

This is my honest review of Google Slides. (and the other document creators by Google) I started using all of google's document creators on my computer, and finally decided to try out the mobile versions of them. All of them work pretty much the same when it comes to settings and customization. The one thing that really needs to be added is options for page setup. None of the mobile apps allow you to change the size and color of the page you're making, and that's a true disappointment. Other than that, Google Slides and all the other productivity programs from Google are great and easy to use!

This app is awesome,I use it all the time . If I could rate this app more than five stars I would . This app is so easy to work with it saves everything you do, it’s easy to put anything on it such as chart , screenshots , pictures , and images . I’m a student so , of course I have to use this app for all my work , and I’m not ashamed of it. At first I didn’t know how but use it , but I figured it out quickly. The other google apps such as google docs , and google drive are also so great . I use those too . I am absolutely in love with this app so much it is just hard to explain . Best app ever!!!!!!!!

Great app, some bugs.

Overall a great app for working on a slide when your on the go, or just at home and don’t want to go to your desk to work on the computer. There are barely any problems with this app, besides that there are some missing things from the desktop version, but I expected that. However, there is also a couple of bugs. The most annoying bug is that I can’t add an image to my slides. I select the photo I want to add, and hit ‘add’, but it never works. No photo is added to my slide. I tried this on my IPad Air and my IPhone 7, but it didn’t work for neither. Google, please fix this for everybodies convince!
