Happy Valentine’s Day!
Did you know that the Microsoft "Office Insider Program" is now available for iPhone and iPad?  This is a great program which gives you early access to builds of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint at the Insider Fast Level.  I have been an Office Insider on the PC side for Office 365 and I really enjoy it. It gives me a chance to play with the new features. Be aware that these are the earliest preview builds and the expectation is that you will help identify any issues and provide feedback to the Office 365 team.  To get an application for the Office Insider Program through the Apple Test Flight program,  click here.  You just post your feedback on the Office Insider Community

But did you know that you are not limited to the animation effects available in PowerPoint? You can actually combine one or more animations to happen at the same time for the same slide object, and thus create your own unique animation effect!
