    Features: PowerPoint control from anywhere in the room (or Wi-Fi range), laser pointer emulator and screen highlighter, easy switch to other applications and back, and presenter-moderated audience participation via VoIP.

    Advantages: No need for a separate controller. Your phone is your controller. Audience question can be heard in large rooms. Everyone with the app has a microphone. With easy application switching, flip charts may be unnecessary.

    Benefits: The two apps cost 25% of an electronic controller.

    Sorry for the sales pitch, but your flip chart comment reminded me. Oh, and anyone and everyone automatically gets a free full-featured 60-day trial of both applications.

    By the way, Mark, the app I was talking about makes it trivial to switch between PowerPoint and any other applications you want at your disposal during your presentation; just a swipe of the thumb. Who needs flip charts?

    It comes in two parts, the host application, and the phone app,

    enjoyed Doug's talk on Story-o-typing. We need to remember flip charts. ;)

    I might be able to offer my office as well. I am near the Orlando International Airport. I have taken classes with Doug before. He is an excellent teacher.

    • Mark K.

      Always appreciate your support and Kony's. We will try getting back downtown this time. Would welcome a Lake Mary location in the future so we can reach members on the north side of town

    Mark - depending on the number of participants, I would like to offer my office as a place to meet for this. It is located in downtown Orlando on Orange Ave. Let me know if you'd be interested in using it. Thanks!

    October 22, 2013

    • Sophia

      No problem. Just so you know, I would say my office could fit around 10 people comfortably. Thanks! Looking forward to this session!

      October 23, 2013

    • Mark K.

      Might be tough for a talk as we usually have 12-20, but that may be a good space for lean coffee. Will keep it in mind.
