Editors' Review

TeamViewer for Mac lets you control another computer remotely, either from your own Mac, or from a tablet or smartphone. All you need to do is install the app on both devices, and the program walks you through the rest.

Pros

Simple setup: When you install the app on any device, you'll see the User ID and Password associated with that device displayed. To connect, all you have to do is enter the User ID and Password for the machine you want to control into your own when prompted, and you'll be automatically connected.

Quick connection: As soon as you have entered the appropriate information, your screen will switch to display the screen of the computer you want to work on. You can perform any function remotely, and your actions will be immediately reflected on the other machine.

Cons

iPhone issues: While there is an iPhone app for this program that lets you control a computer from your mobile device, navigation and effectiveness were both issues we encountered when testing with that particular interface. Because the iPhone screen is so small, we needed to zoom in often, but were unable to zoom on certain parts of the screen. It was also hard to tap the intended buttons, and often we wound up opening other programs inadvertently.

Bottom Line

TeamViewer is a great tool for accessing your own computer remotely or helping another user with a problem on theirs. It does have some limitations when it comes to mobile devices, so you'll get the most out of it if you use it strictly on laptop or desktop computers. Even with this restriction, though, the program offers many benefits and runs smoothly.

"VERY FRUSTRATED"

March 07, 2014  |  By Oliver_reid

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.25963

Pros

OK when it works

Cons

Most of the time it does not work. As a host it freezes up on a Mini i5 with 16 GB using 80-100% of CPU

Call Tech support and they promised to get back to me but they have not

Summary

Use demo version. No intention of buying

"Demo Version: Decent"

December 08, 2013  |  By YupHiThere

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.24337

Pros

It did want I wanted and it was pretty neat being able to see my mac screen on my phone

Cons

You have to login at the computer first if you're using the demo. Also, people can see what you're doing if that matters.

Summary

Good I suppose.

"No-go for video streaming"

December 05, 2013  |  By Ch.Law

 |  Version: TeamViewer 9.0.24337

Pros

I had to find another product in order to watch remote videos from Mac to my laptop. Teamviewer is ok for grabbing files or working on my remote documents, but not for the fun stuff like watching films.

Cons

Video support could be better

"A revolution in providing free remote access to your PC"

December 25, 2012  |  By fernwoodterrace

 |  Version: TeamViewer 8.0.16478

Pros

Using for the past 2 years, connecting 6 PCs with fixed password.

- Can switch on PC remotely ( & camera) to talk to my overseas parents.
- Can resolve different issues on my family's PCs, while traveling.
- Can log-on to different PC in order to get data during the weekend - without actually going to that place.
- Data transfer, is a good feature which works efficiently.
- Like the pop up feature where I can see which of my linked PC has logged in - it feels that we are closely knit.

Cons

Simply indispensable - at least for me!

There are few but for free access & with so many features, its not worth laying them down.

Summary

All Praises for the free software! - If even T/W now starts charging minimal, people won't mind paying ( Pro edition is far too expensive for the companies to consider as they have to develop the faith with the company & extend their understanding on what ways, this software can be helpful!).
For T/W : Pl also advertise in what ways the PRO edition has upper hand than the FREE edition. If everyone has what is required in FREE edition, no one would like to consider the PRO edition.
Pl consider on providing a 8GB cloud service for free ( T/W would expand this way!)

November 29, 2012  |  By MarkMul

 |  Version: TeamViewer 7.0.11837

Pros

Easy to use, works fast, available on multiple platforms

Cons

There is no home user license if you use it on more than 1 computer on your home network. The Pro license is too expensive.
