ProPresenter Remote requires iOS 8.0 or later for iPhone (4s and above), iPod Touch, or iPad, ProPresenter 4 or later, and a Wi-Fi connection shared between your computer and your iPhone. More features are enabled with each version of ProPresenter as shown below:
Step 1: Enable the server in ProPresenter
Step 2: Launch the ProPresenter Remote on your iPhone/iPod Touch
The screen that appears will show you all machines running the ProPresenter Remote Server. Select the desired machine from this list, enter the appropriate password for observing or controlling.
Clicking any presentation will show you the slides of that presentation.
If you are in "Observe" mode, the application will follow along with the slides as they are advanced by the operator on the ProPresenter machine. If you are in a "Control" mode, then selecting a slide of any presentation will cause ProPresenter to switch to that presentation and select that slide immediately.
The Previous and Next buttons will accomplish similar behavior. You can also back-up to select a different presentation at any time.
To display the "clear" options (clear background, clear text, etc), shake your iPhone/iPod Touch and select the option you wish (only available in Control mode).
Possible Firewall issues
If you have the OS X Firewall enabled or are having issues making the connection between your iPhone and your computer, try these steps.
Step 1: In System Preferences -> Security -> Firewall, choose "Set access for specific services and applications" (usually has the default setting of "Allow all incoming connections").
Step 2: Click the "+" button to add ProPresenter and choose "Allow incoming connections" for ProPresenter in the list. You may have to click "allow" in a prompt each time you start ProPresenter.
