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. You can also navigate between Excel worksheets and graphs, and control data slicers from the palm of your hand. And you can scroll through a Word document or quickly jump to specific sections or comments.

    Absolutely love the app but I would enjoy more options for the pointer (i.e. smaller laser, different colors and shapes).

    At first, it was awesome. Later, I don't know why Office Remote can't detect my PowerPoint files.

    This is a GREAT application! It will amaze and create envy in Apple and Android phone users. I thought I had a unique idea in the PowerPoint remote, then I found that Microsoft already had me covered! THIS APPLICATION IS A MUST HAVE!
