Editors' Review

+

TeamViewer is an app that allows you to remotely connect to multiple workstations. There are many apps that allow remote control of different systems, but TeamViewer is set up to be extremely accessible, while also being powerful. Whether managing an IT department or just helping your neighbor down the street fix their computer, it is an application worth installing on your system.

Pros

Passing control: With TeamViewer, all parties install the software and then connect to a session. Control of a computer can then be passed from person to person, instead of being a one-way street as is sometimes the case with this type of software.

Team sessions: The software gets its name for a reason, as you're able to include multiple parties in a connection. This is great when you're managing a team of employees as you can switch back and forth to wherever you're needed at any given time. The multiple connections are sorted into tabs, which makes it easy to stay organized and see where you're needed.

File transfer: A great feature is the ability to drag and drop files from one computer to another. That way, if you're helping someone solve a problem and they need a particular file, you don't need to waste time downloading it to their machine or emailing it over. If you already have the file, you can just copy it over with a few clicks.

Cons

Privacy: TeamViewer has monitoring software of some kind installed within its program to detect when "commercial use" is suspected, as it requires a license to be purchased for commercial use. This raises certain questions about the privacy of your activities, even if using the software legitimately.

Bottom Line

If you need a solution that will allow you to access your own computers remotely, or to connect with your friends' or family's machines, the free version of TeamViewer is a very good option. Even a non-technical person should have no problem establishing a connection.

"If free version expires, 1 star. Otherwise 5 stars!"

April 21, 2014  |  By SwanDiver

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.27614

Pros

Love it, easy to use. My first dial-in software. Don't feel the need to find another one.

Cons

Looks like the free version expires. Any suggestions? How do I get past those prompts so that the software remains free and I don't keep getting badgered?

Summary

Just looking for an answer.

"Works like a charm!"

April 17, 2014  |  By jimmy6p

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.27614

Pros

Three quick clicks and I'm into a computer that's 125 miles away.

Cons

TeamViewer is deceptively easy to use, but I don't really think that's a bad thing. Everything about it is plus +++....++++

Summary

My 90 yr old Mother has mild dementia. I use TeamViewer to connect to her laptop and help her with reading and writing e-mail. I help her find movies to watch on Netflix and clips from YouTube which are all things she simply can't do for herself anymore. It's almost like TeamViewer was custom made for me. Fantastic program. For people who are away from their main computer a lot this would be like having a free assistant on call 24/7. Absolutely fantastic program!

Have had an occasion where I could not Login for 4 hours and finally gave up but the next morning all was well again!

"Just downloaded it and already I'm enthusiastic!!"

February 19, 2014  |  By MzMck

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.26297

Pros

Setup was so much easier than Logmein and transmission time between my two computers is faster. I tried Gbridge and couldn't install on my office computer. I'm an old lady; I don't want the challenge of trying to problem-solve applications that are supposed to make my life easier. Even if I am looking for a challenge, I don't have the time to waste on computers.

Cons

Haven't found any yet. If I do, I'll return and update this review.

"Does everything I need it to"

January 28, 2014  |  By kimmer13

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.24951

Pros

Remote Printing
Remote Sound
Fast
Meeting capabilities

Cons

Can't assign a computer to more than one account - would be nice if the family members could each have their own accounts but each have the home pc listed on their login screen.

Summary

Although getting TeamViewer was a knee-jerk reaction to the bonehead move LogMeIn made when it pulled the plug on its free version with only 7 days notice, now I'm glad. I had never taken the time to even look at alternatives. LMI forced me to, and now I have a better free remote control application than before.
