“Account” needed 1/5
One more app that requires you to have an “account!” to use it! Getting so tired of this! (and it is not a matter of cost - will gladly pay for something I like and use).
On the same page 5/5
We started using Paste and never looked back. It’s so much faster than any “presentation” tool, yet it’s more. A quick way for us to get on the same page and share work.
Loving Paste! 5/5
Updated Review: Paste allows one to create all-purpose “Boards” (mood, ideas, projects, mockups, etc., etc.). Love the ability to “paste” all types of items such as photos, gifs, documents, website urls, files, etc. I’ve been looking for such an app for a long time (focusing on visuals), so thanks FiftyThree Team! So pleased and finding so many uses that I plan to subscribe to the Pro plan—well worth it, especially for businesses!
The simple things make this work 4/5
It may seem like a small detail, but I freaking love that I can type in landscape mode in this app. I can never understand developers who assume everyone wants things to be in portrait mode all the time. The only time the visuals were off in landscape mode so far for me was the initial account creation and verification link. Since you only have to do that once, it’s not a big deal.
Easily using landscape mode and seamlessly switching from portrait to landscape and back again is far and away my favorite thing about this app. My second favorite thing is the ability to paste videos from your phone into a slide; so many other apps I have looked at or tried just do pictures. My third favorite thing is the ability to drag and drop slides to rearrange them. My fourth favorite thing is that it is free. It may prove to be so useful that I will upgrade for unlimited number of “decks”, but until then, I am very happy that I did not need to pay to take a gamble on a new app.
I am sure there are more features I have not discovered yet, as I have just started using this app, but so far it does everything that I was looking for it to do.
Update: It is still very good, but I changed it from five to four stars because I don’t see a way to drag content around to reorder within each slide. Between slides is still very easy drag-and-drop rearranging, but it seems like content within each slide is stuck in whatever order you upload it. Also, I get that they want to make it available on all your devices, etc., but when I paste a video from my phone, it shouldn’t take forever to reload to view it when I go back and look at that slide on my phone. Only pull from the online saved file if I no longer have that video on my phone or if I am no longer on my phone but on a different device. There has to be a way to make the app recognize if access to the original file is available or not, and to choose the direct option whenever possible because it will be faster. Still a very good app though and I still would recommend it.
It’s annoying 3/5
This app crashes way too much. This started right after they redesigned this whole app a few months ago.
Rarely works the same way twice. 1/5
When it works, I really love it. Problem is, it keeps signing me out, and when I try to sign in again it forces me to create a new account. Then I can't access the old account. On Safari I keep getting error messages.
Horrible renders 2/5
Perhaps not intended for high quality images but I find horrible color banding, especially in illustrated gradients.
Can’t sign in 5/5
This is wack. I can’t sign in and make a deck. 👎👎
Perfect for our team 5/5
It’s so simple to create something great, but also quickly. You just drag and drop, that’s it! Best collaboration tool ever, and it’ll not be the one you spend the most time on, it disappears in your workflow, but certainly you can’t live without it.
Uninstalled with Sadness 2/5
I have been using Paper for years. The last update eliminated functionality trying to propagate Paste as new overlay functional UI. I gave it a try. Sadly the trade off leaves user desiring OLD paper. Looking now for a replacement for 53, one of my long time favorites.
Review complication 2/5
By I like to move it *_*
Not very ftiendly operation
53 - Transparency Would Be Good! 1/5
Appears to be a beautiful app ... however, very disappointed w/lack of transparency. If you want to charge a monthly fee to use your app/service ... fine, your prerogative BUT at least include that in your app description or on the Paste website. Deleting app.
Just another inflexible lock-in tool 2/5
By Quark Gluon Plasma
It's pretty typical: All you have to do is commit all of your collaborators to use the tool and only the tool, on the supported platforms, and your life will be great. Oh, it will be sooo good. Oh, only on iOS. Hm? I see no future for this app.
Presentations for modern teams. 5/5
Paste lets my team view a deck as a storyboard, rearrange slides, so my team tell a story in a snap.
It’s simple, web based, allows all modern file types, super beautiful automation giving my team a powerful space to build ideas into meaningful stories.
A presentation tool you won’t hate using… 5/5
Paste had become a key part of my team’s collaborative workflow alongside Slack! There is nothing else that makes sharing and gathering feedback on work so fast and elegant.
Terrible on boarding 2/5
The app is pretty much useless without creating an account or give 53 access to data from your org’s slack instance. Hells no.
The excessive step by step description of how to use the app is an indication of the cumbersome workflows involved. Deleted shortly after that.
