"Create and present anytime, anywhere"
Prezi is a cloud-based presentation creation and hosting service.
The idea is to take presentations away from being a strictly desktop-only experience to something that can be created and viewed on a desktop, a smartphone, a tablet and other devices.
Presentations can be created using any device although it will likely be easier to do so on a larger screen format like a 10-inch Android tablet, a 9.7-inch iPad, or a desktop computer. However, it is certainly true that the user can log into their Prezi account from an Android phone or an iPhone in order to tweak something that they wanted to adjust without needing to perform a major overhaul of a presentation (i.e. a bit of fact-checking determined that one of the statistics in the presentation was inaccurate and it needed correcting).
Create a story-based experience to captivate the audience. Use the power of visualization to bring words to life, explain marketing plans, and show how people can connect together.
Bring together images, videos and text into a seamless experience for the viewer.
All devices can auto-sync between them to ensure that they each have the latest version of each presentation made using Prezi.
The installation completed without any issues.
There was no adware, toolbars, spyware or malware included with the setup package.
Prezi requires Windows OS. There is a also a Mac, iOS and Android version.
The interface is slick and easy to use.
The “Prezis” that have been created are shown in a thumbnail preview which makes it easier to find the one to play to an audience.
The interface confirms in the top-left whether you are connect to the internet or not (this matter because only the Pro version includes creation and editing of Prezi presentations when offline).
Writing, content, attractive fonts and logos can be added to a presentation. Elements can be dragged around until they are in just the right position.

Microsoft Powerpoint is the obvious alternative. It is more text-based and slide-show based that Prezi, but many user are familiar with it.
Prezi is an excellent online and offline tool for creating and using interactive presentations that can include images, videos and text.
