Slidestaxx was created in 2011. The application was intended to make it easier for users to build an effective slideshow using resources they find online. Rather than spending hours organizing and producing the slideshow, the user can input the content and let Slidestaxx generate an engaging slideshow for them.
Slidestaxx allows users to compile a number of resources, including videos and photos, into one slideshow. The application handles much of the difficult work that often comes with organizing and designing a slideshow. This enables users with little to no experience with multimedia or slideshow product to create a presentation that works for their intended purpose. Although the service is not terribly unique, it is still an effective solution.
The Slidestaxx website uses a gentle color scheme that includes a pale yellow background, green and orange. The slideshow pages consists of the actual presentation along the left with additional data to the right. The data includes who created the slideshow, a description or synopsis of the presentation, code that allows the user to embed the slideshow in a website or blog and buttons that allow the user to share the slideshow through Twitter, Facebook and many other social resources.
A new user can join the Slidestaxx community by clicking the black and white “Sign Up” button found near the center of the homepage. The registration form is selected on the following page and asks for a username, email address and word verification code (to prove that the user is human). After filling out the form, the user can click the orange and white “Create New Account” button at the bottom to submit their information.
Slidestaxx invites all users to try its service for free. There are no subscription fees or other expenses required to use the application. This is definitely a good choice considering the many free resources that are used to compile the data for each slideshow. Anyone can create, share and explore slideshows for free.
Slidestaxx.com is aimed at anyone who would like to create a presentation. The application could work for users who simply want to share their expertise or love of a subject, topic or event as well as those who are working towards a goal (such as product marketing). Slidestaxx is easy to use and makes sharing slideshows painless.
