Please take a look at our Getting Started page that contains step by step instructions.How can I get MyPoint?
MyPoint and MyPoint Pro are available on the App Store. MyPoint is free and provides a complete functionality for controlling PowerPoint presentations without limitations or advertisement.
Enhanced features (pointer, pen, timer) can be activated via In App purchase.
In addition to MyPoint you also need to install a small application on your PC/Mac, which is available as a free download: MyPoint Connector
Select "Bridged Networking" (Parallels) or "Bridged adapter" (VirtualBox)
When using the Marker feature please ensure the following setting:
In Parallels: Menu Virtual Machine - Configure - Services: Set SmartMouse to Off
In VirtualBox: Disable host mouse pointer integration
MyPoint on the iPhone/iPod/iPad needs to communicate with MyPoint Connector on the PC/Mac. Most firewalls will display a warning for this type of communication. We suggest to permanently allow access to or unblock MyPoint Connector within the firewall software.I do not have administrator privileges for my PC. Will I be able to install MyPoint Connector?
The installer for MyPoint Connector does not require administrator privileges, but you might need administrator privileges for adjusting your firewall settings.
Please check the following:
No, the current version of MyPoint only supports WiFi. If you can’t connect your iPhone/iPod/iPad and PC/Mac to an existing WiFi network you could also setup a WiFi Ad-Hoc network on your PC/Mac.Do I need to install Bonjour?
With Bonjour MyPoint can automatically detect your PC/Mac. MyPoint works without using Bonjour, but you have to provide your PC/Mac IP address manually.
To determine your IP address, start MyPoint Connector and select the MyPoint tray icon on your PC/Mac. Select the context menu. It will show the IP address, which can be entered in the MyPoint network settings.
Please verify the version of MyPoint Connector, which is displayed in the context menu of the MyPoint Connector icon in the task bar. If the version is "2.0 (2195)" we suggest to download the new version 2.0.1 of MyPoint Connector. The new version contains a fix for this Windows-specific issue.How can I get to the first or last slide of my presentation?
Use the goto functionality.
For the first slide, scroll to the beginning and tap on the first slide. For the last slide, scroll to the end and tap on the last slide.
Pointer and pen can be enabled via settings "Extended Features" in MyPoint. Once you enabled the extended features you can use and explore the functionality of the pen and pointer in the demo mode (that is when you don’t have an active connection with MyPoint Connector on the PC)
To use the pointer and pen for your presentations the enhanced features need to be activated via In App purchase, which is available in the "Feature Activation" section of the "Extended Features" settings in MyPoint.
You can switch between pointer and pen mode with the 3rd button on the extended toolbar. When in pen mode the 2nd button on the extended toolbar changes. In addition the color of the pen is displayed on the lower left corner of the current slide view.
