    Our client send us Keynote presentation that had all sort of animations and it was made with version 6.5 We opened it with iCloud and i was shocked to found that it doesn't show ANY animations. You can basically just view it as slide show. Didn't apple rewrote and dumb down mac keynote version so that it will work on iOS and cloud version? For something basic like animations i did not expect that iCloud version is not able to show it.
    I am strugling to see the point of cloud version of iWork. What is next...half of text in pages is not visible? Got fooled be apple again.

    There is always posibility that i am doing something wrong. So, is there something i can do do "enable" animations in icloud keynote presentation?

    Can you explain this a little better?

    My interpretation:

    Someone emailed you a Keynote file.

    You don't have Keynote on your computer so you used the web based version to open it.

    Is that right?

    You mean those annoying animations that seldom add anything to a presentation but are constantly used by presenters to show off how creative they are don't work?

    To be fair, animations can have some uses. Sometimes there genuinely is value in animating in a slide bullet point by bullet point...

    To the OP, unfortunately Apple does not yet support animations in Keynote for iCloud. Your only options are to open it on a Mac natively in Keynote or on an iPad/iPhone.
