Well looky that: use iPhone as a Keynote remote

I'm preparing for a live hotel presentation this evening, first I've done in probably 10 years. Couple of surprises I've learned over the last month:

1. Projectors no longer cost $3,000. Picked up a small Bomaker unit for $130

2. The iPhone can be used as a remote control for flipping through Keynote slides on ones laptop. Had no idea about this, and was wondering if I'd need to buy the bluetooth clicker I used to own. Nope, ones own iPhone will do, and it just works. A few steps to set up, but this Apple page explained it perfectly and it took all of 3 minutes.

The next couple of hotel rooms that I'm speaking in all have flat screen TVs, so no project needed. Still, what a great advancement in technology.

Edit: here's another feature I just discovered; hold down on the Keynote icon, and it gives you these options:




Mac Pro 2013 3.7GHz Quad-Core, 32G RAM Mojave 10.14.x Dual 25" Acer 1440p LCDs11" i5 MacBook Air

Sweet!

On a related topic, I was surprised to find a Samsung TV Remote iOS app in the app store recently.

Hmm. Not sure about phone as clicker. How do you operate it without looking at it (just to advance slides), away from a podium? Seems like it's lacking in the tactile dept.

Well, I'll report back with how it works. You touch the screen and it moves to the next transition or slide. And you can go backwards to another side or transition if you need to.
