TeamViewer available on Android® nowEasy access to Windows®, Mac® and Linux® systems from Android devices
Goeppingen, Germany, February 16th 2011 – TeamViewer, a leading provider of remote control and online presentation software, now offers single-click connection from Android-based devices. Free for non-commercial use, the user-friendly app offers fast access to Windows, Mac and Linux computers located anywhere in the world.
Based on the popular TeamViewer software which is already available on iPhone® and iPad®, the Android version enables complete access to computers from the mobile device. Perfect for people in the go, users can connect and control home computers while IT supporters can troubleshoot and offer assistance through their Android device from wherever they may be.
Connecting with TeamViewer for Android is easy; users simply enter the ID and password of the computer they would like to connect with on the Android device. TeamViewer partner lists can also be used to save the ID and password of trusted collaborators for easy touch screen connection. Further enhancing the experience, user history is stored on the Android app for fast reconnection with recent contacts.
Once connected, users are able to see the entire screen of the remote computer and manipulate the mouse for total control. Typical Android gestures like pinching and zooming give navigation an authentic feel as users scroll through programs and open files as if they were seated at the remote computer. Remote reboot is also possible from the Android device, if the distant PC must be restarted during the connection.
TeamViewer offers a number of options through the Android app, to customize settings which improve quality for individual preference.
“Mobility is an important part of the business arena,” begins Holger Felgner, General Manager of TeamViewer GmbH. “From accessing your workstation mid-commute, to checking in while at a meeting, the expectation and desire to stay connected creates a real need for remote control software. Thanks to the TeamViewer Android app, people can maintain a presence while being wherever they need to be. Even better, our multiplatform solution means it doesn’t matter what kind of computer they are accessing – the TeamViewer Android app is Windows, Mac and Linux compatible.”
Available for Android versions 1.6 and upwards, the TeamViewer Android app maintains the highest possible security standards including AES 256 bit encoding. Free for non-commercial use, professional versions are included in select TeamViewer licenses. TeamViewer Android can be downloaded at www.teamviewer.com/mobile.
