Office Remote turns your phone into a smart remote that interacts with Microsoft Office on your PC. The app lets you control Word, Excel, and PowerPoint from across the room, so you can walk around freely during presentations.

New PowerPoint Features in v1.1
- View current slide and laser point on it without changing phone orientation
- Next slide preview
- Play and pause embedded audio and video files

With Office Remote, you can start your PowerPoint presentation, advance the slides, see your speaker notes, and control an on-screen laser pointer with a touch of your finger — all from your phone.

And you can scroll through a Word document or quickly jump to specific sections or comments.

    Very useful especially for PPT presentation. Thoughtful design of the buttons. Just need to reduce the vibration.

    Good. But fix the vibration to a simple pulse instead of a long vibration thanks
