Teamviewer v7 Eases Remote Access

Teamviewer, one of the most popular remote access apps for programmers now has a new version and plenty of features. Earlier this year, Pam Baker wrote that Teamviewer is “A very comprehensive tool that’s incredibly easy to use” and we’re in agreement. This week v7 was out of beta. It allows the creation of an online meeting with just a single click. You have a full collection of collaboration tools, including screen sharing, video conferencing, text chat, a whiteboard for presentations, and the new ‘File Box’ for drag and drop document sharing. You can even record your sessions and save them as AVI files for documentation.

New is a TeamViewer Meeting App, available for Android and (later this year) iOS devices. Meetings are hosted on any Windows OS, but can be viewed on Mac, Linux, and mobile machines. There are also performance improvements, too. Up to 25 people can view a meeting concurrently. Business licenses for the complete solution, including support and minor version updates, start at a one-time fee of $749. For private use, TeamViewer is completely free, without any limitations to functionality.
