I tested out TeamViewer today. This allows you to remotely control a computer over an internet connection. I have a desktop that I had setup that will allow me to remotely log in so that I can 1) access certain programs from home (and on a tablet, that won't normally run on a tablet), or 2) log into a school computer to check on the network, application or connection issues remotely. I probably use this feature 3-4 times a year, but it is still good to have that ability when needed.
When I had the iPad I used TeamViewer and while it worked, the screen orientation never quite fit, so I never got to see the whole desktop - so it worked, but it felt clumsy on the iPad. On the iPad I ended up using SplashTop. I would use it if I needed to access Outlook or a Windows specific program. But now most of my apps (email, etc.) is web based so it's not as necessary for me to use a remote control program from my tablet. However, I thought I'd try to see if TeamViewer was better on the Kindle - and it was!!!!
The computer I connected to control was a Windows based PC.
I was surprised that I could see the whole desktop, it was much easier to use than I remembered on the iPad. Using the touchscreen to control a desktop isn't the easiest, but will work in a pinch. When you first log in, you see the whole desktop, but then you can zoom in and out as needed. It was a fairly simple process to control the desktop from my Kindle.
TeamViewer is free for private use or you can purchase it for a business. If remote access is needed, it is a slick too that you can add to your Kindle arsenal. I hope to try out SplashTop soon to compare.
