The highly popular VNC tool TeamViewer has updated its Android viewer client with a slew of new features, including one users have likely been clamoring for from day one: native touch control.

The latest version of TeamViewer for Android now supports a brand-new input method for tablets - direct touch gestures. No more moving the cursor around to get the job done, just tap and drag to your heart's content, pointer-free. In addition, Windows 8 support has been enhanced, and now allows for the use of Windows 8's native OS gestures - making navigating your PC from your tablet even easier. I, for one, found the touch gestures on the Surface RT very useful for navigation, and miss them on my laptop. Now you can finally give them a whirl on your non-touch PC, albeit remotely. Check out the video below for a demo of the new touch interactions.

This update also includes a revamped settings menu, a new registration site for computers and contacts, re-written app instructions, and optimization for Android 4.2, along with the standard bug fixes and other improvements. Head to the Play Store to get it now.
