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.

Pretty good but a power drain

I got this because I do many presentations as a teacher. The slide preview works well. The pointer is a little glitchy but not a serious problem. The real bear is that the program is a power hog. The battery on my iPod touch (fairly new) is nearly drained after 20min. I need to go for 40. This is probably because the program has to maintain constant contact with the server software on the presenter machine. The software works well otherwise.

5/5 stars


1 minute to set up and operate.
Download the software application to your Mac, leave app open, click app on your iPhone, open your keynote presentation and you're off to the races.
Both devices must be operating on the same WiFi network.

5/5 stars

Couldn't believe it worked AS ADVERTISED and SO EASY!

Great program.

My ONLY requests:
#1 - To view the "next" slide instead of the "current" slide on the iPhone. This would be a HUGE benefit. I realize it's easier said than done, but it would be a big plus.

#2 - For the slide to be displayed on the phone with all elements "built"/"completed", so that everything appears (all bullets in a list, for example). This would probably help with the way slide transitions seem to throw a monkey wrench in the works sometimes.

Nice job though. I look forward to more releases from you.
