PowerPoint - Great Prototyping Tool

I have been big fan of powerpoint prototyping.. in most of the projects to do IA i have taken PPT approach.
Strong reason, very easy tool to handle and share with others. Beauti which makes PPT more useful/powerful its universal kind of app for maximum users, it makes Customer/reviewer  job easy to give comments on your wireframe/story. For them its just matter of putting Block and writing their comments with in that. Yes, you can do low to high fidelity in prototypes.

Recently Microsoft has launched PPT Storyboarding feature with Visual Studio 11. There are great blogs, request please have a look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh409276(v=vs.110).aspx.

First time when I came to know about this, question was
Do I need to have Visual STudio to have Storyboard feature and tools in my PowerPoint?
Answer - NO


Yes, we can just install .msi and ll be ready with our Storyboard feature within Microsoft PowerPoint.

I started using this for my couple of projects, believe me its great experience. I started loving this.
here is very good article + downloadable file - http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/267121/StoryBoard-Template-in-Powerpoint
