Zoho Show Update Adds Slide Transitions and Publishing Enhancements

Zoho recently launched an update to Zoho Show, its online presentations tool and Microsoft PowerPoint (s msft) competitor. This new update ups the game against SlideRocket, Google Docs (s goog), Acrobat.com Presentations (s adbe) (part of Acrobat.com, covered here), and the soon-to-launch Microsoft PowerPoint Web App by adding thirty slide transitions, and improved import and export of PowerPoint presentations (including support for its slide transitions).

There are also new advanced options on Zoho Show’s “Publish” menu for sizing embedded presentations, which should prove welcome if you are wanting to integrate Zoho Show presentations on your blog or web site.

Zoho has also improved support for Google Chrome (s goog). Previously, if you were a Chrome user you could only view Zoho Show presentations, but now you can have full access to all of its features.

Zoho and its web office applications may not get the headlines like Google Apps does, but its attention to usability and features like those in this update make them a player to watch in the web office market.

Have you tried out the newly-updated Zoho Show?
