New software designed to make the Apple Remote a handy presentation tool is available now from PocketMac.

Designed especially for Intel Macs, PocketMac Remote extends the functionality of the Apple Remote, enabling users to employ the small white device to control presentations in Keynote or PowerPoint.

PocketMac Remote works by re-routing the play/pause, volume control and forward/back buttons so they effectively control such presentations.

"We're thrilled to release PocketMac Remote," said Tim Goggin, vice president of sales and marketing. "With so many businesspeople taking their PowerPoint and Keynote presentations on the road, it just makes sense to add the functionality to control those presentations with the cool little remote that comes with all of the new Intel Macs."

The software is available now and costs $9.95.
