When it comes to remote controlling and accessing of computers then the very popular and first name comes in mind is the TeamViewer. Team Viewer is software which allows remote controlling and accessing over internet connection. You don’t need a LAN connection between two PC to have connection between them.
Not every android and internet user knows that TeamViewer is available as an app as well. Yes, it’s true!
You can download TeamViewer on your android smartphone or tablet and it works well when I used it on my HTC One V. TeamViewer for Remote Control is the official name of the app and is available for free at GooglePlay store.
TeamViewer for Remote Control Review
The app will allow you to connect to any PC which got TeamViewer installed and then you can control that PC from your mobile devices. The app works same as the desktop app does and I didn’t found any performance bugs.
It worked fine on my HTC One V i.e. a smartphone but I’ll still recommend the app for tablet users as they got bigger display and smartphone smaller display aren’t comfortable for this app.
Features of TeamViewer for Android
The app has got following features that you’ll get on your Android device for free.
- The app will provide you with a complete QWERTY keyboard that you use with your PC or laptop so that you can control the PC comfortably. If this keyboard isn’t there then controls to the PC remotely will be limited to specific tasks and applications only.
- The app even allows you restart the computer remotely and it supports Windows, Linux and OS X operating systems. So the app will allow you to control any PC or laptop remotely.
- The app will let you control other system comfortably and it will also allow you to zoom in or out to have a better look.
- The app will show you with the connected computers list and will show their online/offline status as well so that you can know when a particular computer is ready for the connectivity.
Installation and Using of TeamViewer for Android
You can download TeamViewer for Android smartphone or tablet from the official GooglePlay store and once the app gets downloaded completely then it will automatically get installed like any other app.
To set up the app for connectivity you need to enter your friend computer’s TeamViewer ID and password like you did while using the desktop TeamViewer app. You can watch the official video of using the app below.
Like the desktop version of TeamViewer comes as free to use only if you’re using it for your personal usage so the TeamViewer for Android is also available as free only for personal usage.
If you want to use it for managing your business then you need to look for some standard license.
