TeamViewer Editor's Review
Team Viewer is an excellent screen-sharing and file-transfer application that is popular amongst the technical and non-technical alike.
This is due to the varied uses that are available through Team Viewer, with the apparatuses most popular devices being the remote troubleshooting of IT problems, the ability to manage servers in remote data centres or the allowance to let users connect to their desktop PCs when they’re away from the computer.
The installation process with Team Viewer is even impressive and even allows you to toggle administration rights. Once loaded Team Viewer gives each of its users the exact tools they need when they are looking to share screens securely, send files with no hassle and switch the user who has complete control.
This can occur because when you log in you’re provided with an access code and a password, which you can share, allowing your computer to be controlled to the level you have set it to. The Team Viewer even remembers the computers that you have connected to, which allows you to reconnect to previous PCs quickly and with no bother.
Pros: Free for personal use, easy to use, the integrated contact list allows you to support family and friends instantly, extensive security features and remote access is available.
Cons: Support and documentation is poor and it can be very expensive to use professionally.
Conclusion: TeamViewer makes screen and file sharing simple and fluid as well as unobtrusive and is a worthy addition to any office or home for both professional and casual users.
