TeamViewer is a very powerful and incredibly useful application for smartphones running the operating system Windows Phone, with which you can get full access to any computer running Windows or Mac. Everything that is needed to run the application, is the installed software TeamViewer, for example, on your home computer, some simple manipulations to configure access, as well as a connection to the Internet available on your smartphone and computer.
The speed of the Internet connection on your smartphone may be even small (GPRS). Of course, in this case there will be some small nuances regarding the cursor response and rendering of the computer screen on the smartphone screen, but in general it does not make any problems. The private (non-commercial) use of the program is absolutely free and has no limitations. For commercial use, the developer asks to pay quite a serious sum of money , but the most interesting thing about this is that this nuance is based on trust and honesty of a person. That is, if you claim (in the agreement) that you use the program only for personal use, it will work fully and completely for free.
Start and configurationSo, the installation of the application to a smartphone doesn't require any special actions. This application doesn't need to be configured either, to a large extent. The important thing is to download an installation package for a computer from the site teamviewer.com, to start installing the application, and to spend a couple of minutes to configure access. That's it, you can safely run the program on your smartphone, enter data for access and start working on your home computer remotely.
Basic featuresOf course, you cannot watch movies, and the sound isn't transmitted through the application either, but the program easily lets you to work with documents, send some file from your computer to e-mail, or just to see what a minor child do when sitting at the computer. After running the program on the computer only once (further, it will be uploaded together with the OS), you will automatically receive a permanent identification number (ID) and a temporary password.
The latter should be used, perhaps, when you grant access to your computer to a stranger - for example, so that he or she can help to deal with some problem in the operation of the PC itself. If you want to have an independent and unrestricted access to your computer at any time, you will need to complete a simple registration procedure with a login and permanent password to access to the system. Having performed these manipulations, you can be sure that you are able to control your computer remotely wherever you are, provided that it is turned on, of course.
ResumeSummarizing, we can say only one thing: the program TeamViewer is a real must-have. It can be useful to every PC user. By the way, this review was written on Nokia Lumia 920 with its help.
