TeamViewer, which produces PCMag Editor's Choice for remote-control software, released a free app on Tuesday that lets users control Mac OS X computers from devices running any other major OS, including Mac, Linux, Windows, iPhone, iPad, or Android.
The software, called TeamViewer Host for Mac, not only allows remote control, but also file transfer and remote rebooting.
"With TeamViewer Host for Mac, users have the freedom to control their Mac remotely whether on vacation, at work, or simply on the go," Holger Felgner, general manager of TeamViewer, said in a statement. "Professionals can access their Mac computers to retrieve files while working in a home office or any other remote location."
The software is free for personal use, while business users can purchase multiuser licenses starting at $749, which includes a manager app and personal support. TeamViewer offers full conferencing features, including VoIP and videoconferencing. The software is used by over 100 million people, according to the company.
TeamViewer Host for Mac starts automatically with the computer and runs in the background. All communication between the viewer and the viewed computers is encrypted with AES-256 bit encoding. The controller and controlled computers can be switched for two-way support options.
To try controlling your Mac remotely, head to the TeamViewer download page. The software work with Mac OS X 10.4 and later. Controller software for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone, and iPad is also available on the same page.
