So you need to access your PC, but you aren't nearby? TeamViewer might be helpful, assuming you had the foresight to install it on your computer. If not, sucks for you because TeamViewer just got an update with several handy new features.

Here's the change log for the latest update.

  • Wake-on-LAN: Control an offline computer remotely by waking it up before establishing a connection
  • Remote control in full screen: Enhances the remote control experience by removing the system or navigation bar from view
  • Accelerated mouse pointer: Makes it even faster to navigate the mouse over the screen
  • Support of SD cards: Extends file-sharing capabilities
  • Easy access: Connections without a password

Wake-on-LAN is a particularly big deal for remote access. That lets you turn on a sleeping PC without actually being present, allowing you to connect to it. This feature usually requires that you have the option enabled in your computer's BIOS settings. SD card access is also useful if you want to share files that aren't on your device's internal storage. That's only for Lollipop and higher, though.

The new version appears to already be live in the Play Store. As usual, TeamViewer is free for personal use.
