BTpower: An Application for Remote Controlling PowerPoint Presentation Through Smartphone
This paper presents an interesting android-based application “BTpower” which turns our phone into a remote. The app lets us control PowerPoint presentation from across the room, so we can walk around freely during presentations. The ppt/pptx file will be stored on the mobile. Bluetooth is used for connectivity purpose. The application provides a user-friendly interactive interface by which we can interact with Microsoft Office PowerPoint on our PC. With BTpower, we can start our PowerPoint presentation, jump to the next or previous slides, resume, or exit the slide show with a touch of our finger—all from our phone.
