Galaxy S3 as a wireless mouse for presentations?
I am a Galaxy S3 user for some months now and I have been looking for a specific app/feature/functionality that would allow me to use the S3 as a presentation device like a wireless mouse or something. Is there something out there that would allow me to do this?

Well, I know using a usb OTG cable that you can connect a mouse to the S3, as well as connecting to other devices with the S3 as host, including display, via usb but as
a mouse? Can't say I've heard that but maybe someone else...?
As well as using a usb OTG cable, there is also an HDMI connector for HD transfers to screens, which includes a power connection as you' d need to have it plugged in at the same time. Will update with what it's called as I can't recall right now...
Update - it's an HDTV MHL adapter.

There are a few options out there but they're all crap as far as I'm concerned.
I tried this years ago with my HTC Legend and this stuff never worked without huge lag.
Search for 'using phone as a mouse' on google. You'll come across a few apps that supposedly do this.
They all involve installing a 'server' on your laptop and then an app on your phone.
The phone then connects to the server over wifi (you have to be on the same subnet)
It may or may not work for you. They're never worked well enough for me.
Suggest you try the free stuff before you shell out some money.Galaxy S3 32Gb Pebble Blue

You may want to take a look at this app. In the video it mentioned controlling Power Point.
