TeamViewer is remote desktop service that makes it easy to login to a desktop, Mac, or PC from another internet-connected computer. The company also offers mobile apps and has been beta testing an Android app since November. Today TeamViewer for Android dropped the beta label. You can download the app from the company’s web site.
The basic app is free for non-commercial users, but existing TeamViewer customers with business, Premium, or Corporate accounts can also use the app.
To login to a remote computer, just run TeamViewer on your PC and then fire up the mobile app and enter the ID and password for the computer you want to connect to. You can bring up an on-screen keyboard, simulate left and right mouse clicks, and manipulate your Windows, Mac or Linux desktop from your Android phone or tablet, using pinch-to-zoom and swiping gestures to navigate. You can also save profiles for computers you need to access regularly.
TeamViewer is available for Android 1.6 and up.
This is definitely a good app. I’m waiting for proxy networks (http://www.proxynetworks.com) to come out with something similar so I’ll be able to trust the security, as I deal with medical records.
