I should consider myself lucky since I've been using this app for more than 15 months now, my friend shown me how to control my home computer when I'm at work. And then I found Android app and the journey continues. Cheers for bringing this one to the masses.

I tried to remote connect from a mobile to mobile or mobile to computer it failed.
This app works well in a normal 2G speed. That makes the thing amazing.

I've been using TeamViewer for a month now and it has come in handy with helping my wife with computer issues while I'm at work. Gotta love cool technology like this!

This is now a common way that people are trying to scam businesses. ive gotten calls at work saying that the person is from the tech department and needs to remotely control the computer by downloading teamviewer. knew it was a scam off the bat because our company already has remote access to our computers lol

TeamViewer is best for remotely accessing computer from iPhone. Additionally, one can even have a view only remote connection between iPhone and computer by deploying on premise remote support appliance such as RHUB appliances.
