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.

    Why is Bluetooth a requirement?

    This is a very handy (albeit expensive) remote control. The new version is great but for whatever reason after a few slides the one being shown and the next slide just suddenly disappear from my 1020 and I'm left staring at two gray rectangles.

    Very useful and simple app. A good addition to the marketplace and option to Nokia beamer. Good work Microsoft.

    One pretty big flaw is when using it as a powerpoint remote. The notes for each slide are limited text. If you have many talking points for a slide, you can't view them all on your phone. Left me bumbling like an *****. :(
