Description

Share the control of slide presentations with colleagues. Works with Keynote, PowerPoint, Figma and pretty much any other presentation software.

No more “next slide please” — Remote Control gives you a virtual remote control of your ← and → keyboard keys. Share it with colleagues and friends to let others help advance presentations, photo slides or really anything where arrow keys or media keys are used.

Tap "copy link" and send the URL to anyone you want to give a remote to. The shared remote works on any platform in a web browser, is completely free and does not require an account.

Features:
• Issue ← and → key events remotely
• Can optionally issue media keys instead; ◁◁ and ▷▷ . This allows control of software like Spotify, even when the app is not in the foreground.
• Real-time low-latency network connection across US and Europe ensures millisecond responses to remote key taps.
• Temporarily pause the ability for others to control your computer
• UI dark mode and light mode, matching your macOS settings
• Ability to replace a remote — creates a fresh new remote with a new unique unguessable key.
• Status bar item for quick access when for example presenting with Keynote or Figma in full-screen mode

Safety features:
• Control is only active when the program is running. Nothing is controllable by others when the app is not running (or when the remote is turned "off".)
• Runs in a macOS "hardened runtime" sandbox, ensuring the app can't do anything except what you allow it to do.
• No personal information is shared or stored, remotely or locally
• Hard-coded filter allows only leftarrow and rightarrow key events to be issued from a remote control (or nexttrack and righttrack in media-keys mode.) No other key events can ever be issued.

Q&A

> What is the best way I can try this myself?
Tap "Copy link" and open that link on your phone. Next, on your Mac computer, open the app you want to remote control, for example Keynote where you enter presentation mode. Now tap the buttons in the remote control on your phone.

> Nothing happens when I click → in the app
Remote Control events are issued only in the active app and only in its foreground window. Make sure the app you want to control is in the foreground. Either use the status bar menu to issue commands locally, or make sure to hold ⌘ when you click into the Remote Control app window to avoid changing focus from the app you are trying to remote control.
