Pointer Remote for PowerPoint and Keynote 4+
Designed for iPad
Turn your iPhone or iPad into a pointer and controller for PowerPoint or Keynote presentations. Has 'Next Slide' and 'Previous Slide' controls, and can show notes from presentations on the iPhone display along with a timer. Pointer icon can easily by replaced by any image, which could be used for humorous purposes. Touch the screen to show the pointer - which is controlled either by dragging your finger around the screen (easy) or by orientation (takes a little practice) - your choice.
Requirements: Computer running Mac OS X 10.7 or higher, WiFi connection (on the same local network or by creating a computer-to-computer network), and PowerPoint or Keynote (choose the program on the back side of the App). Please note that this app cannot control an iPad Keynote presentation.
A small Mac application, PointerServer, must be downloaded to your computer and started whenever Pointer is used. This program is available for free at:
Please note that the presentation runs on your computer, not directly from the iPhone or iPad. Instead the iPhone/iPad controls the computer.
A support e-mail address is listed at the support web site.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Updated for iOS 10 and recent iPhones.
Ratings and Reviews
I used this app once to practice my speech and it worked fine. It hasn’t worked since. I’ve tried redownloading and restarting my computer and phone but nothings worked. I know it’s only 99¢ but I’m not happy I wasted my money on this.
Would not work. Waste of money
VERY GOOD APPLICATION - WELL WORTH THE $.99 PRICE!!!!
After downloading, I was able to immediately use. I ran through the functions with PPT 2008 Mac and Keynote '09 and both worked nicely. The pointer function was a great addition, makes emphasis of certain things on the presentation very helpful, especially when projecting on multiple screens at the same time ( not possible with a standard laser pointer ). Used without a router nicely after creating a wi-fi connection on my MacBookPro!! One suggestion would be to add the option for viewing either current or next slide on the iPhone. It would also be nice to have the "go to slide" function be a direct function rather than scrolling through in-between slides. If you want a great app at a great price, this is a very worth while purchase!!!!
