If you use both Microsoft Office and a Windows phone, there is now an app available to turn your phone into a remote control to use with MS Office, specifically with PowerPoint, Excel, and Word.


The app is especially useful when giving office presentations using PowerPoint. Your phone can control the slides and presentation from across the room so you no longer need to stay close to your computer or carry a mouse and find a flat surface to use it.


You can use the app to bring up supporting documents in Excel or Word in the middle of your presentations. You can scroll through the documents page by page and even line by line. You can also control an on-screen laser pointer. Even those people who aren’t a fan of Microsoft have to admit, this is a great idea.


The requirements include a Windows 8 phone, Office 2013(all versions except Office 2013 RT), a Bluetooth-enabled PC, and the installation of the desktop add-in for Office Remote on your PC.


The app was released on November 18th, 2013 and you can find it at the Windows Phone Store. Read Microsoft’s full blog post.
