Is there a remote, other than the iPhone, you can use to switch between slides so you won't have to touch the screen and have a laser at the same time?

no...been looking for years..the iphone will do a keynote remote but not the same as a slide remote via USB....less reliable...

I didn't think so. I tried searching a good bit before creating a post. I am planning to use my iPad for my next presentation andit's really nice having the clicker in my hand for some reason. I guess I got used to it.

Thanks for responding.

I agree - keynote is my goto program as I do 5 presentations a week, every moring with an ipad....only when I do big groups and can't stand near my pad do I switch to my MB Air and use the Logitech clicker....

My understanding is that Keynote doesn't recognize any sort of keyboard input for slide advance. Without that, nobody can do a Bluetooth remote. So you're probably stuck with the iPhone/iPod Touch.
