My new project: Remote Point!

Hey everyone,

It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog, I’ve been too busy enjoying my hard earned vacation before I start walking the path that is called life and get a job and everything 😉

Recently my grandmother & grandfather both passed away within a week so I decided to dedicate this project to them.
Remote Point is a Windows Phone 7 application that allows a user to control their powerpoint presentation with their Windows Phone device!

This project contains the following and will be available on the marketplace soon:
– Remote Point WP7 application
The current features are rather limited since I’m completely new to the entire office development scene ^.^
We can go forward and backward during a presentation or even jump to a specific slide. The current slide will be shown on the device itself.
I plan on including some extra stuff but most of it can only be done when the new mango update is out (yay for sockets!)

– Remote Point PowerPoint add-in
This handy add-in will add a new ribbon to your PowerPoint screen and allows you to start the listener (so that the phone can connect!) and display some basic info.
Whenever you start a presentation, screenshots will be made of all the slides in the current presentation and stored in a temporary folder.
These screens will be sent to the device to display the current slide 🙂

Anyway, that’s about it for now 🙂

Keep on coding ~
