    What's a good substitute app for "Remote for PowerPoint"? It was free, unlimited use before the update, and now the dev wants $5.99 for it -- I only use it 3x per year -- and Lite version has a 15-slide limitation. Besides, I can't figure out where to download the paid version.

    I'm looking for something that works with Bluetooth, preferably.

    I don't know of anything that's powerpoint specific, but you could always check out something like gmote. Most of the apps like that use wifi, and they allow you to interact with the entire PC vs just powerpoint.

    That's right. (G), with free-for-personal-use Teamviewer you can run a slideshow, or any application really, on your PC/Mac and simultaneously stream that to someone else's PC or Mac desktop.

    Or you can 'take over' someone else's desktop remotely, and operate his/her machine as if you sat in front of it. The other party can see everything you do on their screen. This is ideal for solving computer problems and remote maintenance. With Teamviewer you are a remote/mobile helpdesk/sys admin.

    Or you can use Teamviewer to access (all the power and storage of) your own desktop computer at home from your smartphone, wherever you are (Wi-Fi not even necessary).

    Oh, and Teamviewer is totally secure: it creates a unique, encrypted and un-interceptable VPN tunnel everytime.
