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.

    It would be more useful if this app supports connection over Wi-Fi, as not all PC or notebook has Bluetooth connectivity.

    Didn't work with my Lumia 521 and surface pro 3

    Works like a charm! My wish list for this is: a transparent tile, support for Office RT and the ability to control a Sway.

    It's amazing specially its laser pointer and the ability to play and pause. Just one missing thing is refreshing slide preview after any admission 🎫

    Awesome and flaw is that the laser view shows the whole slide on your phone while only part of the contents is shown on your computer (when you use animation)
  • by Tito Alvi 1/13/2015
    great app, but sometimes too long to process slide preview and laser does not appear. please update app to fix bug

    Works great for the files stored on local storage, but not working for the files open via SharePoint.

    Absolutely fantastic, no need to go out and buy myself a presenter now. Nearly flawless design. Need to add a color option for the laser function though (green please). The initial connection is a bit tricky the first time but after that its simple and straight forward. Great app.
