Earlier this month we previewed an app from Clarity Consulting that acts as a remote control for Power Point. Well today they’ve given us a new video and new detail no how it works. Turns out that the interaction between Power Point and the phone is through Microsoft’s Push Notifications so the phone sends a request to PowerPoint. You can swipe on the phone to go through slides and it even has a timer and you can view your notes on your phone so there’s a lot of functionality here. You can read more about it here and here’s a video of it in action:
And Clarity Consulting isn’t done:
I have several other applications in the works that have a similar model of WCF services and push notifications. One is for remotely controlling media center (or streaming media center content to the phone) and the other is a collection of browser add-ins that push links to the phone and hyperlinks phone numbers to enable dialing through the phone from your desktop.
You guys do good work. Keep em coming!:)
