TeamViewer Now Lets Android Users Control Their Macs

TeamViewer Now Lets Android Users Control Their Macs

I know, it may seem like blasphemy to some of our readers (does it? Feel free to weigh in), but some Mac owners have (gasp) Android phones. For them, then, the release yesterday of TeamViewer for Android will let them access their Macs from their Droid-like phone of choice, for free — just as iPhone and iPad users have been able to do for about a year or so now.

Just install the desktop client on your Mac, pop the app on a suitable phone and you’re pretty much good to go. TeamViewer works with Windows (and Linux) boxes too; though if you’re a Windows user with an Android phone, the Cult of Mac logo is probably starting to burn your retinas right about now.

    I want to point out that cross-platform remote control software is not new. Proxy networks (http://www.proxynetworks.com) has supported this feature in their remote desktop software for years.
