Keynote is Apple’s answer to Microsoft Powerpoint. Apple Keynote is a built-in part of iWorks publishing suit, and Keynote templates help us create gorgeous looking presentations without much of an effort or spending lots of time.
Keynote templates are often called Keynote themes. They are basically the same thing.
In the past few years, Keynote has emerged as a very popular wireframing and prototyping tool, thanks to its slide masters, grouping, animations and styles.
So today we decided to make a collection of its free resources.
By the way, if you are using Mac and you have iWorks installed, you might be interested in our collection of Rapidweaver Themes that we published a couple of months ago.
This collection includes full templates and mockups which you can edit easily. No other software is required for editing these mockups.
How to use the mockup templates
- Load/Open the mockup in Apple Keynote.
- Create a new presentation.
- For each interface screen, add a new slide.
- Copy elements from the mockup file to your newly created presentation’s slides.
- Now you can customize the mockup’s components according to your requirements.
- Add links, images and anything else that is required.
- You’re good to go!
