TeamViewer for Remote Control review
TeamViewer is a famous remote desktop app which has been available for Android since 2010. If you need to make some adjustments on your desktop computer or another mobile device while you are on the go, TeamViewer is a tool you need. Using it, you can easily control Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.
This app lets you quickly and securely access the desktop with all the documents and installed applications. So, with TeamViewer, you can assist friends or family members with system issues via desktop sharing.
Trying to help your relatives or not tech savvy friends with their computer problems over Skype can cost you your sanity and it rarely actually helps. That’s why you should ask them to install Teamviewer on their laptops, and whenever you get a technical question, just start up the Teamviewer app and view their screen to resolve any issue within minutes.
After you open the app, it displays what it is good for and what it can do. In the Connection tab, you will find the main feature which is the TeamViewer ID and password. You also have the option to test the connection to catch a glimpse of how the app is in action. After the app connects, you’ll also see a couple of tips and tricks on how to control the app.
After you enter the ID which appears on the Teamviewer on the other side, you’ll get full access to the connected computer. The entire process is controlled with the help of a mouse which you can drag across the screen. And tapping the screen represents left-clicking something on a regular computer.
You can setup TeamViewer so that you can always make a connection to the computer as if you were in front of it. And it feels great to exchange files or view a program on your computer when away from it.
It’s a great tool to help your friends, colleagues or clients. Plus, you can send and receive files in both directions and get a multi-monitor support. The only downside is the fact that Teamviewer is not very convenient if you have a small screen.
Overall, TeamViewer is on par with the desktop version and works fast, so connecting to other clients is a breeze.
