We have just released Smoothboard for Mac that is made specifically for the Mac OS X platform.



The Smoothboard for Mac software has a new dedicated website at http://www.smoothboard.org/mac

Smoothboard for Mac has essential features such as annotation features, presentation control, and most importantly the ability to annotate on PowerPoint and Keynote slideshows.

The Smoothboard for Mac software is compatible with the  Wii Remote Plus (Nintendo RVL-CNT-01-TR).



Some of the Annotation tools available are
  • Undo/Redo
  • Eraser
  • Pen
  • Select Move/Resize
  • Highlighter
  • Color and Size
  • Shapes
  • Snapshot Screen or Region
  • Background

Similar with the original Smoothboard software for the Windows platform, Smoothboard for Mac comes with the outside screen toggles for up and down triggers. The bottom area of the screen is used to trigger the Annotation Mode specially for PowerPoint and Keynote slideshows.



 

The User Guide can be found at http://smoothboard.org/mac/features/user-guide/

If you need any assistance or encountered any issues, please do contact us via the Smoothboard for Mac contact form at http://smoothboard.org/mac/contact/

Thank you.

Users with Mountain Lion (Mac OS 10.8 ) may download the latest package which should work on the operating system.

http://smoothboard.org/mac/download

Java is required to be installed on the computer and the following configuration must be made
Under System Preferences->Security & Privacy, Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere

Previous installation of the Smoothboard for Mac software should be deleted. The Trash should be emptied too.

To connect the Wii Remote, press the Red Sync button after launching Smoothboard.

Regards,
Boon Jin

you could at least acknowledge that you made it work on OS X 10.8 by using my solution from here: http://www.uweschmidt.org/comment/246167

Hi Uwe,

Thanks for your effort on this. The swapping method was indeed tedious. :)
