Five Apps: Android remote access tools

TeamViewer 2

Five Apps

1. TeamViewer

TeamViewer is actually the one remote tool I use the most. In fact, I use it pretty much all day. The Android version of the tool is one of the best in breed. Not only does TeamViewer allow you to remotely manage a machine, you can transfer files to and from your Android device. TeamViewer features: Multi-touch support, friends list, automatic quality adjustment, gain access behind firewalls and proxies, 256-bit AES security/1024-bit RSA key exchange, and more. This version is for private use only. For using Team Viewer in a support environment, you'll need to purchase a license which isn't cheap. For information on licensing, check out the comparison page.
