Berlin, February 3, 2014 – LibreOffice Impress Remote for iPhone/iPad is now available on the iTunes Store. The app allows to use your smartphone to remotely manage the LibreOffice Impress presentation running on your laptop, by showing a miniature of the slides on the screen and allowing to navigate back and forth by sweeping right and left with your fingers. In addition, you can also visualize the presenter’s notes.
LibreOffice Impress Remote for iPhone/iPad is compatible with the recently announced LibreOffice 4.2 for Windows, MacOS and Linux. You can use the app – developed by Siqi Liu, a brilliant Google Summer of Code student – with any desktop version of LibreOffice.
“With the announcement of LibreOffice Impress Remote for iPhone/iPad, which supplements the already available app for Android, launched in January 2013 and available on Google Play Store since then, we make another step forward to make LibreOffice users happy”, says Florian Effenberger, Chairman of The Document Foundation. “Today, thanks to our apps, we can potentially reach over 1 billion smartphone users worldwide with the LibreOffice brand”.
LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at http://donate.libreoffice.org. Money collected will be used to grow the infrastructure, and support marketing activities to increase the awareness of the project, both at global and local level.
