Apple now offering Keynote Remote for free
Apple has made its last paid iOS app available for free. Last night the company dropped the price for Keynote Remote from US$0.99. Now everyone who buys a new iOS device from here on out will be able to get every iOS app Apple makes for free. Keynote Remote allows users to control Keynote on their Mac from their iOS device:
Keynote Remote lets you control a Keynote presentation on your Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch from another iPhone or iPod touch in the room. While you present, view your current slide and presenter notes in portrait, or the current slide and next slide in landscape. Swipe forward to advance and swipe back to return to the previous slide. Keynote Remote works with your WiFi network, so you can control your presentation from anywhere in the room. Keynote Remote can use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth when connecting to your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
However, though Keynote Remote is now free, Apple has not actually updated the app since 2011 and it still does not offer support for a 4-inch iPhone screen, nor has it received a makeover for iOS 7.
