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.

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.

    For some reason it doesn't work for me. I have a 1520 and a Yoga 2 Pro. Somehow they don't connect over Bluetooth.

    It would be great if the app allowed interaction with the presentation, like pushing buttons, and so on.
