not be a Pocket PowerPoint, but Slideshow Commander does everything you could want
with PowerPoint from your PDA. The software is simple and
compatible with almost every device (including WinCE 2.11 and HPC's).
You might not be able to edit
your presentations, but now you can control them from your Windows CE
or Palm device. Here is an overview of what goes on. You
load your presentation onto your laptop or desktop computer, connect
your device, run PowerPoint on your computer and Slideshow Commander
from your PDA. Your device and computer will talk and volia, you
are ready to go. Now you just select "Start
Presentation" and your computer monitor will show your presentation
while your PDA will get screenshots and text of what is on the screen
(if you have it show you those). You can also move the mouse on
the screen, and draw on the screen. It is quite amazing
have not implemented an install wizard, it doesn't take a rocket
scientist to install. Just download, unzip, find the files for
your OS and processor, and copy them to wherever you want on your
device (I went with the start menu....then you don't have to
shortcut). It does take a little work to get ActiveSync to stop,
and get my device to be "connected yet not connected."
You can't have ActiveSync connected while Pebbles.exe (on your
desktop) try's to open your Com port (or IrDA). Once I got
connected, it worked great. The device found the slide show and
would play it and navigate through it. I had to turn off the
pictures of the screen because they weren't loading (probably cause it
was so slow over the serial connection).
Overall, this would be a
great tool to have when you are try to give a presentation. It
is simple to use, can display notes, and with the proper connection,
allows you to move around while giving your presentation.
