Wiimote Smoothboard 0.3.5 BETA

Update: I have released Smoothboard on a new website, Smoothboard.net.

Floating Toolbar - Annotation Floating Toolbar - Navigation

The latest Smoothboard release contains Floating Toolbar to provide quick full control of your presentations and lessons. The Floating Toolbar allows you to change slides easily in PowerPoint and navigate your desktop with ease.
The built-in Annotation Tool allows you to write and draw on top of any window on your desktop. The Colored Pens and Highlighter will be essential in every presentation. The Snapshot tool will automatically save a screenshot for later retrieval or distribution.

The latest Smoothboard release can be downloaded from http://www.smoothboard.net
