GoToMyPC app for iPad lets you access remote computers on-the-go

Popular remote computing tool GoToMyPC has launched an iPad app, joining competitors like TeamViewer HD in the App Store. You'll need the host program installed on any computers you wish to access, and an account is also required (but GoToMyPC does offer a free a 30-day trial). Fire up the app on your iPad, and you're presented with a list of computers you've previously enabled for remote ac...

TeamViewer for Android boosts performance, exits beta

TeamViewer is one of the most popular remote control apps around, and its mobile version for Android has been an incredibly handy tool for on-the-go administrators since its beta release. Now, TeamViewer for Android has shed the beta tag, and it's ready for full time remote admin duties. The updated version offers better support for hardware keyboards and Swype, and optical trackballs and d-pa...

TeamViewer 6 for Android now available

Just last week, the Teamviewer 6 beta arrived for Windows users. With the arrival of my first Android device in the mail, I had hoped it wouldn't be too long before the crew released a beta for Android -- and today my waiting as at an end. Teamviewer is now available for installation on your Android device, and it's a welcome addition to my remote support arsenal. Functionality is every bit as...

15+ free Windows apps to help you tackle Thanksgiving tech support

digg The holiday season has always been a time for gathering -- but in recent years, it's also been a time when family and friends come bearing gifts of computer troubles. Their computer friends -- people like the Download Squad team and you, our readers -- get asked to do everything from installing RAM upgrades to the annual computer tune-up. We're happy to oblige, of course, because there's a ...

TeamViewer Beta 6 is now out, remote control freaks rejoice

Let me just come right out and say it: TeamViewer is the best remote control application for Windows PCs today. I've tried numerous apps, and nothing comes close to TeamViewer's performance on a WAN. For LAN situations, Windows Remote Desktop rocks. But when you've got the whole wide Internet between you and the computer you'd like to control, nothing beats TeamViewer. I use it several times per ...

TeamViewer goes cross-platform, now available for download on Linux

Well, I can now cross yet another application off my list of apps I'd miss if I switched to Linux. TeamViewer, my remote support application of choice, has arrived -- bringing its zero-config screen sharing goodness to Linux. Some of the more recent additions -- like per-application screen sharing via TeamViewer's toolbar button -- haven't made it into the Linux version yet, but things adminis...

TeamViewer releases iPhone remote support app, and it rocks

TeamViewer has always been a great, no-fuss way to connect to remote computer systems. With the (sort-of) recently added presentation features, voice and video chat, and improved window sharing options, version 5 of the desktop app is the best release so far. And now -- despite what my pal Constantin at TeamViewer told me a bit over a year ago -- they've launched an iPhone app [iTunes web link]...

Teamviewer 5 beta gets faster, adds voice and video conferencing

I've been running TeamViewer as my go-to remote support app for a couple years now, and I don't see myself switching any time soon. It's fast, requires no configuration, and the additions of the Flash-based web viewer and partner list in version 4 were solid upgrades to an already good app. Version 5 is now ready for beta testing, and it looks like Teamviewer is once again set for some solid new...

TeamViewer improves speed, messaging, presentations in v4.1

TeamViewer is my app of choice when it comes to remote support, and their developers continue improving on an already impressive product. Version 4.1 has added some very handy new features, and it's ready for download. Since I last wrote about TeamViewer, the connection speed has been improved a number of new additions have been made. My favorite by far is the ability to create an account and sav...

Ammyy Admin is a free TeamViewer alternative for remote support

While I use (and love) TeamViewer, not everyone's IT budget can justify the $700 expense. If you're in need of a good, zero-config alternative, check out Ammyy Admin. It's a very slick application. Both the host and remote user download the same file - a tiny (128kb), portable executable. Launch it, and Ammyy displays one tab for the client and a second for the host (operator). Just like TeamVie...

Lee's Favorite Apps: Teamviewer

There are a ton of remote control apps to choose from, and I've used plenty. Normally I'm all about the free alternative, but this is one case where I'm completely ok with paying for a product. For ease of setup and use out of the box, I haven't found anything as good as Teamviewer. Yes, Teamviewer is completely free for personal use - and if you're doing the "friend that knows about computers" t...
