Buzz about 280 Slides

From Around the Web

  • "I can safely say that I was unprepared for experiencing such a leap in UI design for web applications. I've never seen such attention to detail in a web app's UI - and the best part is, the interface is still so responsive, unlike most hefty JS apps (try, for example, using Google Presentations). I sincerely hope this sets a new standard for all of us web developers for usability in our web applications. Thanks 280 for pushing us forward." - Matthew Moore

The option to download your presentations locally allows you to access them in instances of not having an Internet connection." - Free Technology for Teachers
