Hello <strong>jfmconcepts</strong>,<br><br>I'd like to personally welcome you to the World's largest community for sharing presentations.<br><br>XXX is REALLY USEFUL. You can use it to:<br><br>- view & download presentations on virtually any topic under the sun<br>- upload your own presentations (ppt, pdf, odp, pps formats) and share with a global audience<br>- embed presentations into blogs, websites, wikis etc<br>- create an audio presentation using our free slidecasting tool<br>- use our event functionality to send conference invites, archive slide decks, publicise your event etc<br>- use our privacy
Then the upload file button did not work.
I promptly deleted the app. The customer experience is king for retention.
