Make Free HTML5 Presentations, Infographics and Animations with EWC Presenter
Easy WebContent Presenter (also called EWC Presenter) is an all-in-one cloud based tool that allows you to create great contents to convey your thoughts, messages, product and services to your audience in a visual and interactive manner.
I bet, this package is a big alternative to other web based applications that cost you hundreds of dollars to create your content. It is currently in Beta and free, it covers about five applications you could have spend close to a thousand dollars on, and seriously, its end product yields an excellent result. Easy WebContent has not paid me for this review, but I chose to do this review based on the result I got from using the Easy WebContent product, and I believe it will be useful for my audience.
Let’s go down to the History Lane of Easy WebContent
Traditionally for you to create standards presentations you had to consult the popular and soon to be outdated Adobe Flash or the Microsoft PowerPoint, go to the web, you will see how much you need to pay to get these stuffs. Not everyone could afford this. PaymanTaei and his team have done a great job creating the EWC Presenter product.
According to Crunchbase, Easy WebContent is a collaborative effort between professional web designers and the HindSite Interactive, Inc developers. HindSite Interactive Inc, established in 2001 is a web based consulting company giving custom web solutions to organizations and business. In 2008, the team came together and created Easy WebContent via sensing a demand for fast, cost effective, simple effective method of website editing. With this WYSIWYG system, website owners can access their site content without prior technical training or big expenses. Easy Web Content considers every business in mind, whether multi-million dollar or startup, no matter the level and knowledge of your web design.
EWC Presenter was announced in the fall of 2012 and went beta early 2013, the cloud based HTML5 animator tool sets users into creating complete web and mobile friendly interactive content. The power of the EWC Presenter is limited by the imagination of the user. It is made to create web and mobile friendly animations, presentation resumes (presumes), interactive presentations, interactive Infographics, banners and lots more. The published work is easily integrated through all major social networks, websites, digital documents and blogs giving users additional stream of communication that will better engage their audience.
Founder and President of Easy WebContent, Payman Taei stated “Presenter is meant to simplify the traditional process of creating animations and presentations; What traditionally required hours of tedious work with design experience is now put in the hands of everyone who wants to create engaging content”. He continued
“Our goal is to change and improve the way users communicate content. Traditionally content has been static, composed of primarily text. Through the use of Easy WebContent Presenter, we want to give the user the control and the know how to visually drive their message.”
EWC Presenter which was launched in the fall of 2012 as closed beta and went open beta early 2013.

We promised and we’re keeping our word
