    Hi all and thank you for your help.

    Can you please recommend a App for my iPhone to enable it to be used as a remote control for my PowerPoint presentationn on my iPAD?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    here is what I do:
    First I load the PowerPoint file into Keynote iPad app (via dropbox or webdav or itunes).
    Then I fire up "keynote remote" app on the iphone and off I go with the presentation.
    BUT: You need to have a wifi connection between your two devices. Unfortunately, I could not get bluetooth to work.

    Hope this helps.

    If you need more details, please let me know.

    As far as I know, the above is the only way to do what you're asking. But note that Keynote is $10 and the Keynote remote app for iPhone is $0.99. Also, opening ppt/pptx files in Keynote isn't a science - there are font differences, symbols display weird, transitions may or may not work...you need to be ready to go back-and-forth a few times until you see in Keynote what you have in Powerpoint.

    Having said that, I have had no problems in getting bluetooth to work between the iPhone and the iPad. But I have heard of others having this problem too. If you can get WiFi it's faster anyway, but I don't have that option at my workplace.

    Good luck!

    Yes, I agree. But once you have figured out this, you can easily use fonts or transitions that work in both programs. And my media files from PP don't work. So I do not insert them in PP.

    To get a dedicated wifi connection for presentations I use an additional pocket router.

    Hope this helps.

    Can you tell me which model pocket router you use and your success rate with it?

    Thank you for your reply. I there maybe a list which I can check for transitions that work with keynote?

    Thank you so long.

    As far as pocket routers are concerned:

    1. I use a D-Link Pocket AP - here

    2. For a business partner I bought and configured another one - here. That one is from amazon.de.
    Amazon.com link - here

    Success rate is 100%. Just power it up, connect to it over wifi, give it your desired SSID or leave the default one, change security settings and admin pw and you are done. I think it took me 10 min. The router will reboot 2 or 3 times and you are done.

    Hope this helps.
