NUITEQ Remote for iOS and Android - Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) - intro

NUITEQ Remote is a tool that allows users to connect their mobile iOS and Android devices, such as their iPad, iPhone, Android mobiles and tablets to Snowflake.
Accordingly users can utilise NUITEQ Remote as a remote touch input device to control Snowflake.
This is, amongst others, ideal for presentation situations, where a presenter wants to flip through for example her photo and video content in the Slider app or navigate through a corporate brochure in the PDF app, without actually having to touch the main presenter display.

NUITEQ Remote is completely cost free.

Using NUITEQ Remote


NUITEQ Remote is available in the Apple Appstore here and in the Google Play Store here .
NUITEQ Remote lets you connect an iOS or Android device to Snowflake and then you are able to control Snowflake remotely with touches, using your mobile device.

The steps to get started are:
1. Make sure Snowflake and the iOS/Android device running NUITEQ Remote are on the same local network.
The solution is integrated with Bonjour, so if Snowflake and NUITEQ Remote are on the same wifi network, NUITEQ Remote will automatically search for Snowflake, to see if it is running and giving you the ability to easily connect the two.

2. This solution works also when a computer that runs Snowflake and NUITEQ Remote are on different networks. Then a user can simply connect by filling out the correct IP. Press F4 in Snowflake, to find out, what the correct IP is and enter the IP in the Remote's input form.
