While it's become commonplace in more civilized parts of the internet for your data to just appear on whatever device you're using (I haven't had to manually move contacts since 2008, for example), sometimes things get left behind. If you've ever felt the sting of realizing that one important file is stranded on your desktop, TeamViewer is here with a healing balm for you: file transfer.

TeamViewer for Remote Control just recently updated to allow users to transfer files both from your desktop to your mobile device, or vice versa. More importantly, the app doesn't require users to go through a full-fledged desktop interface to get to your files. Although, if you want that, this sale is still going on. There's not much else to this version bump (the requisite "Improved overall stability" makes an appearance), but we imagine this feature will save more than a few users a whole lot of hassle.

Thanks, Eduardo!

    This is badass. I use this app pretty often, and I've always wondered if this feature would ever make its way to the mobile app. Nice job TV.

    If only it would allow remoting to another mobile. I can't tell you how many times my family has asked me if I could remote log on to their phones to help them "fix" something.

      TeamViewer Quick Support allows this -- it runs on the phone and you can use the desktop client to access the phone. I haven't tried a phone-to-phone test though.

    Been waiting for TeamViewer to have this feature for a while. I was using Tappin in the mean time while I was waiting on this. One less app I need now

    Why does the story link to Jump Desktop for people who want a "full-fledged desktop interface"? That's exactly what TeamViewer gives you by default.
