    A great animation cloud-based software, but kinda expensive

    Reviewed on 11/5/2022

    Excellent.

    Excellent.

    Pros

    The variety of templates is one of the great features. So, I don't have to create a similar video every time; Each video is unique.

    Cons

    Well, the pricing. It is super high.
    Also, faced few issues with the Arabic language during the free trial. Could be fixed by now tho.

    I have created dozens of videos for internal comms, advertising, recruiting and training. It has made my life so easy and with great reward and outcome.

    Pros

    This is a super simple app to create fun and vibrant communications pieces either with cartoons or video.

    Cons

    I think customer service could be much better. I don't think I've ever gotten ahold of a live person.

    Filmora

    Reasons for Choosing PowToon

    I didn't exactly make a total switch because I still need to edit some video before dropping it in to Powtoons, but the functionality of Powtoons and its ability to drag and drop anything into the video at any time is so cool. And it has a huge database of photos, video, and other tidbits.

    Not great they say they would be creating new content and we have had the service for 6 months with absolutely no content updates

    Pros

    You can put multiple layers of text on one slide and customize where it will show up.

    Cons

    They have absolutely zero content. They say they have marketing videos but they are only 10 seconds long and random. We no longer use this software.

    Reasons for Switching to PowToon

    We ended up purchasing promo as well because promo has a wide range and variety of videos and music that works a lot better than Powtoon. Very disappointed in Powtoon.

    It’s been amazing. I totally recommend my fellow teachers to try it. They won’t regret it!

    Pros

    I love Powtoon, it’s an incredible video making app. I use it for my classes and my students always find the videos cool and interesting to watch. I can summarize important topics in small animation that help them understand and review the topics easily. It’s inexpensive and provides amazing features for no money.

    Cons

    I’m general Powtoon is really nice and user friendly. Sometimes it takes a while to load but nothing that affects the use of the website.
