Microsoft's latest update for PowerPoint turns your Apple Watch into a remote

The new remote will enable you to manage your live presentation on your Apple Watch, progressing through each slide without having to pick up your smartphone, tablet or PC. Some minor details like elapsed time, current slide number (as well as total number of slides) are also present on the wearable app.

PowerPoint Remote for Apple Watch is an ideal companion app for those who have to present using slideshows and require a small remote to control their presentation. You can grab the update (version 1.8) from the App Store today.

  • If Microsoft keeps this up, I might forgive them for "some" of their mistakes.
  • I don't understand the Microsoft hate: Seriously, what did Microsoft do to everybody? From how some people act around here it's like bill gates ran over their dog or something.
  • Excellent reason to get the Apple Watch (plus the footstep counter).
