Editors' Review

TeamViewer is an app that lets you connect to other Macs and PCs via the Internet to share desktops, transfer files, walk through presentations, and control other computers remotely. It's even free for noncommercial use, making it a great choice for your pro bono troubleshooting for friends and family, or for just accessing your own Mac from the road.

The interface is simple: you just open TeamViewer and you're prompted to either create a session or wait for one. A unique ID and password is created for each session, and you need TeamViewer on both computers (if you're helping someone, they can just download and run the small "TeamViewer QuickSupport module," so they don't even have to install the full app). Once a session is running, you can see the other computer's desktop on an inset window. Your level of control depends on the parameters you set for the session (Remote Support, Presentation, or File Transfer), and the interface and menus are straightforward, with intuitive touches like a big "X" that either user can click to end the session.

In the latest update to TeamViewer, you now have the ability to create meetings with up to 25 participants. You can now schedule meetings in advance within the app, perform a practice run before the big day, and then hold a meeting complete with video and other media -- on all your devices. In our test runs, we were able to get a meeting up and running and use many of the new features. We think TeamViewer users will appreciate the new meeting features because they're intuitive and don't require a lot of practice to create a meeting on-the-fly.

TeamViewer isn't perfect -- for example, it often feels less like a Mac app and more like a ported PC program, which it is -- but it's surprisingly stable, fast, and (perhaps most importantly) free for personal use. With extras like integrated chat, heavy-duty encryption, and new meetings support with tons of features, TeamViewer is definitely worth a download for anyone who needs this kind of functionality.

    "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

    "This is the installer for TeamViewer 8."

    April 04, 2013   |   By JTylerRoen

    Version: TeamViewer 7.0.11220

    Pros

    Good software.

    Cons

    Terrible when it comes to backwards compatibility. Finding the installers that work even from TeamViewers site may be difficult.

    Pros

    simple in use, free, shows really great results

    "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!)

    "Very useful app, thanks for providing it for free"

    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.
