The newest version adds more animation capabilities and (unsecured) Web-based collaborative editing, plus the ability to remotely control a Keynote presentation on another Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

Keynote's big negative is its awkward requirement of copying documents to and from cloud storage services, rather than allowing direct access. But it supports AirPrint and PDF export.
