Editors' Review

+

TeamViewer is an excellent screen-sharing and file-transfer app that can be used to facilitate business collaborations as well as helping distraught relatives diagnose and cure computer problems. Along with being free for noncorporate use, it gives users precisely the tools they need to share screens securely, send files with a minimum of hassle, control access rights, and even flip which user has control.

The options available while you're in control work smoothly. You can maximize the pane that the other computer's screen is visible in, as well as utilize several smart options from a drop-down toolbar in the center of the window. A big X lets you close the connection, while the Actions button lets you switch whose in control, disable remote input, and reboot remotely. The View menu hides options to adjust the screen resolution, the optimization toward speed or quality, and control multiple-monitor displays.

When you log in, you're given an access code and a password. Sharing those allows your computer to be controlled by the level you set it to: remote support, presentation, file transfer, or VPN. The TeamViewer servers remember which computers you've connected to, so reconnecting to previously shared computers happens faster. TeamViewer also has a Web-based version, for remote connecting to home from public computer. Even the installation process is impressive. Users can toggle admin rights, can opt out of running at startup, and can opt into installing the TeamViewer VPN driver for more secure screensharing. Overall, TeamViewer makes screensharing and file-sharing as fluid and unobtrusive as it should be.

"This has made my helping friends easy"

December 28, 2009  |  By DMoyer

 |  Version: TeamViewer 5.0.7572

Pros

The simplicity of the program makes it something that even the people that are not computer literate have no problem setting it up and using it.

Cons

I can't think of anything that causes any difficulties.

Summary

I am a retired person that enjoys helping people with their computer difficulties and some of those individuals are living some distance from me or work at times that I can't be at there home to help them out and this program lets me take care of their problems while they are at work and don't have to be at their computer while I resolve some of their issues. GOOD JOB Team Viewer develpers.

"New version cuts you off after 10 minutes"

December 26, 2009  |  By Krontor

 |  Version: TeamViewer 5.0.7572

Pros

Works great for 10 minutes.

Cons

New version cuts you off after 10 minutes--not worth the download anymore.

Price to buy the full version is $700 and up.

Summary

The older version didn't cut you off after 10 minutes and was a great piece of software. New version is not worth downloading.

There are other free products which work great, don't disconnect you after 10 minutes, and do much more, such as Gbridge.
