TetheRingo is a mobile companion app that turn your mobile Android device into a PowerPoint presentation remote control.
With TetheRingo you can control a PowerPoint presentation running on your Windows PC, start / stop presentation, move to the next / previous slide or jump to the first / last slide.
TetheRingo is based on two application pieces:
â€¢ The TetheRingo Remote Control app, which can be downloaded for free from Google Play Store, this app runs on your Android mobile device.
â€¢ The TetheRingo receiver, which can be downloaded for free from http://leelusoft.altervista.org/tetheringo-powerpoint-rc.html , this app runs on your Windows PC where the presentation runs.
Both, the mobile device and the Windows PC must be connected to the same wireless LAN so they can discover each other.
How to set it up
Just follow the next steps:
â€¢ Download the TetheRingo receiver to your Windows PC, open the zip file into any folder and run it (no installation is needed).
â€¢ Open your local PowerPoint app and load a presentation (no need to start the show, just open a presentation).
â€¢ From Google Play Store, download and install TetheRingo RC on your Android device.
