LibreOffice Impress Remote 1.0.4

Slideshow presentations are all well and good, but sometimes having to return to your laptop or computer to advance the next element of the show doesn’t fit in with your plans. Expensive hardware devices exist for the likes of PowerPoint, but in keeping with its open-source roots, the developers at LibreOffice have come up with a better solution, allowing you to press into service your Android phone or tablet as a remote control for your LibreOffice Impress presentations instead.

The app requires LibreOffice 4.0.1 or later to be running on your Windows, Mac or Linux machine, and rather than rely on a wi-fi or cellular connection, Impress Remote currently only supports Bluetooth as your wireless medium, so you’ll need a computer and mobile with Bluetooth capabilities paired first.

With the hardware talking to each other, you then have to enable the remote control within Impress itself – head over to Tools > Options > LibreOffice Impress > General to do so, then completely close down and restart Impress for the settings to take effect.

Once done, fire up the app on your Android mobile, load the presentation into Impress on your computer and, after a short pause, you should hopefully be able to view and control it from your Android. The interface is slick, responsive and easy to use – you can control the slideshow a number of ways, including via your touch-screen, plus view any attached notes alongside the current slide. It’s a little glitchy this early in its development, but Impress Remote works pretty well.


Not totally bug-free, but after a slightly fiddly setup process, LibreOffice Impress Remote works well and makes it easy to control your Impress presentation from your Android mobile.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
