Today i decided to try out TeamViewer via iPod. I ended up finding fascinating adventures with it. Below are some of the unthinkable ideas i had.
Imagine that you are sitting in Starbucks and your friend urgently needs a document from you that you have at home which is half an hour away. No worries for TeamViewer is here; with your iPod or iPhone in your hand, connect to Starbucks wireless connection and run TeamViewer’s app (Download). Connect to TeamViewer software which you have run earlier at home (either Mac, Linux or Windows) and open up your e-mail service and send it to your friend! Voila, problem solved!
I was so lazy lying on my bed and i wanted to see what is going on on my laptop. Maybe some friend of mine dropped me a message at Windows Live Messenger / aMSN. Luckily i had my iPod with me, i simply connected to my home network and launched TeamViewer and connect to my Ubuntu. My friend Esther dropped me a message so i decided to let her know how great this application was and i decided to communicate this way (it was a new experience) although there is a lot of messaging tool that i know of. I though of checking what’s up with my virtual machine that i have left running and i found nothing much so i decided to shut it down to save processes. Oh well, finally nothing much to do i just press the “Shut Down…” menu option. Let’s get back to Fruit Ninja!
Wao, if you have an iPhone and you need to do anything anywhere… it’s even greater! Do you know what i thought of… Imagine i’m on the transit while rushing to university which i left my computer on with my current project (programming some silly software again). I can simply remotely connect to it with TeamViewer and continue debug or turn it off otherwise. This is one of the most exciting feature i could think off: programming remotely!!
