Prezi for Android review

Another notorious latecomer has finally made it onto the Android platform: Prezi. The app itself is only partially useful as it is only a viewer and won’t allow you to edit, still you can use it to view presentations and to rehearse them on the go.


It would be nice to have Chromecast support, so that you can the use the app for live presentations as well. In the description it says “Chromcast for supported devices”. This, however, is misleading. There is no native Chromecast support in Prezi yet. You can only use Chromcast mirroring if your device supports it (Kitkat and Lollipop so far).

Having said that, if you do have one of those supported devices, presenting with Prezi on Android is fun. Even so it takes some getting used to (double clicking instead of clicking for zoomin in, clicking/tapping instead of swiping for continuing the path).

The good:
  • Clean and beautiful material design
  • Fast
  • Great for presenting if you have a Nexus or brand new Android device

The bad:

  • no editing
  • misleading promise of Chromecast support
