As part of the Google Summer of Code I’m currently working on adding smartphone remote control to Impress. It’s still very much a work in progress, however much of the basic groundwork has already been done.
At the moment it is possible to control a presentation and view a preview of the current slide on the smartphone app: (this is only a temporary interface to allow for testing of the control):
On Friday I also began working on a thumbnail view of the presentation:
Because of a bug it’s not possible to control the slideshow from that screen yet, which is what I’ll be fixing romorrow. I’m also hoping to theme the view to make it look nicer. The design team have done some great work on designing what the app will eventually look like, you can see this on the wiki.
