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.

    Great stuff well-done. Zoom ability with fingers would be very useful.

    Is it possible to enable Airplane mode when you start presenting with Office Remote? To avoid calls and notifications?

    This app is great unfortunately I can't give it a five star due to one condition. Lumia 520 connectivity with my Surface Pro is not good so whenever I switch from slide to slide, it delays it by 10 seconds to 1 minute. When I try to connect my windows phone by Bluetooth, even without office remote, my Surface refuses to negotiate with my phone.

    I love it, however I did notice a bug in the presenter notes. Office remote and PowerPoint don't always see eye to eye when it comes to what they display as presenter notes. In office remote, I have seen the slide number presented as notes, or blank notes when there are notes showing in PowerPoint, but much of the time the notes work. It's a bit frustrating.
