    I have a presentation coming up soon. I know I can use my Android smart phone as a clicker, but I have to download something onto the college computer in order to use it (Which as you probably know won't work, as i'm not admin).

    So is there anything that I can put on my phone to click through a powerpoint without having to install anything to the computer?

    (I would be able to install a portable programme on my memory stick, that would work but I don't know any programmes that do that)

    I would definitely recommend using a dedicated presenter e.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-910.../dp/B002L3TSLQ

    You can get more basic versions fairly cheap. In the past I haven't got on very well with apps. As well as having to install a sever on the computer most apps communicate over wifi which can be difficult to configure at schools and workplaces. The dedicated devices are also more reliable.

    If you don't want to buy one you could ask around and see if the college have one you could borrow ?
