    Summary

    Here is a quick review of the iPhone 4 PowerPoint applications. Which is the best? iClickr has a lot of features and an uncluttered interface. On the other hand, If you need to draw annotations or control a mouse, mbPointer may be the one for you. iPresenter shows slides on the iPhone, but it doesn't have a lot of options. Finally, Documents to Go is a more comprehensive app that works with other Microsoft Office apps on iPhone besides PowerPoint. If a larger and more complete Office Suite app is what you are looking for, then this is it.
