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.
