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. 

App requirements:
- Microsoft Office 2013. This app does not work with Office 2013 RT or earlier versions of Office.

    Throw out your scanner. Amazing. Take five pictures in a row at crazy angles. Will clarify the pictures\text (like a lot of scanning apps) - but will automatically correct for taking pictures from absurd angles (which I have never seen before and still cannot believe is possible). Great software. Now saves in PDF's too. Wish it didn't force to save a copy to Onenote - but I forgive it for the otherwise grew software.

    This is a great tool if your work allows your phone access to its systems. I would love to see this on the tablet too because then you could control your document from a company tablet and not worry about getting the okay to use your phone. Then it would be perfect.

    Good efford but there is no wow factor. In other platform like android, there is an app from Asus named Remote link where it can do whatever Office Remote can do but one step higher. Any version of office or PowerPoint can be used together. The app also can turns your phone as touchpad to select or open music player, photo or anything. At newer update, it even can synchronize with PC as long as both connect to the same wireless network and no more relies on Bluetooth. I really hope in the future update for this app can be as good and convenient as Asus remote link. Thanks and no offense.
