TeamViewer for Windows Phone updated with modifier key support, Windows 8 gesture control and more


We last looked at TeamViewer for Windows Phone when the app launched last month, but already we're looking at an update for consumers. If you're not familiar with the name, the app enables you to take control of remote computers using your smartphone. It's a neat remote access solution.

As well as numerous bug fixes and minor improvements, version 8.0.2 includes the following:

  • Modifier key support added - You can now use all the modifier keys you know and love, including "ctrl", "alt" and "shift"
  • Built-in support for Windows 8 gestures - When connected to a computer running Windows 8 you can now call up commands from the app bar
  • Performance improvements for Phones with 512MB RAM
  • Remember last known mouse position and zoom level when switching between monitors
  • Improved app stability

You can download TeamViewer from the Windows Phone Store (Windows Phone 8 only) - Warning: please note that we've received reports that this update effectively breaks the app. It may well be worth holding off the update until a patch has been released. TeamViewer is also available for Windows 8. via:

iamoniwaban says:

SargeT says:

extreme588 says:

You must uninstall and reinstall.

techjmw says:

Awesome, hopefully logmein will take notice and catch up now.

WARNING! Major fail update. Everyone is reporting it crashes and won't update after install. If u rely on this app, do not install. Appears L920s and HTC8x are affected.

iamoniwaban says:

And Samsung Ativ S

goldenpipes says:

No wp7 version :(

jposthauer says:

Crash = fail!

maaab515 says:

After this update the application failed to start
Nokia Lumia 620

PurpleOmen says:

Update force closes the app! Won't even let me open it!

sarim_xyz says:

Somebody confirm if this update messes up as warned above..?

s3rgiu83 says:

Yeap... Wish i didn't install the update... Crashes when you tap to open it.. Don't update...Lucky you... I updated it a few hours

sarim_xyz says:

Woah..i clicked on 'update' and then came back here to read comments. Thanks to Patrick here that I cancelled download in time.

Wael Hasno says:

It's true. I haven't used it on my phone yet which is why I updated (no immediate use for it). App crashed in milliseconds after I tapped on it. In other words, it didn't even start.

vyasjisworld says:

After update App goes crashing! i tried re-installing still fails!!
Any one having old version installation file ..

cdbstl76 says:

Damn, already updated.

harkaran 77 says:

Visva27 says:

What about wp7.8 users

jposthauer says:

You can download TeamViewer from the Windows Phone Store (Windows Phone 8 only)

neo158 says:

It seems that the update has been pulled, I couldn't find it on my ATIV S!!!

sholokov says:

Yes it has. The link in the article still gets you to it though.

neo158 says:

True, but I'll wait until it's fixed before I install it.

lindhve says:

Lumia925 fails also

lindhve says:

Lumia925 fails also

meathead88 says:

I've been using ConnectMe. It seems to have more features...

WHAT ?! When did teamviewer become avaialable on WP8!?!

Eas195 says:

It's already available on WP8, but the latest update forces it to be pulled again until it has been fixed.

tgr42 says:

"Improved app stability" - except for completely breaking the app.  lol!
I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Microsoft should be catching this stuff during app certification.  Sad.

RooAh says:

Crashes on my Lumia 521

Paul Wiseman says:

Was working perfectly prior to the update, now the app crashes, i no longer see it on the app store.   I have a ATIV S now without teamviewer.

Narse77 says:

Can't even open the app now. It closes as soon as I try and open it. Lumia 920 on AT&T

ivankan says:

Also failing on my Lumia 920

Same on my Lumia 920 on Att

It broke it! Now it seems to be gone from the Store.

ShahdHamdan says:

It's been removed from the store!!!

Nawzil says:

Let's wait for version 8.0.3

thefabgar says:

Same here, crashing at start.

Lumia 620

skollie9 says:

Updated app, and crashes immediately when i try to open it. Lumia 920. :(

AneticsUK says:

Can somebody tell me how microsoft missed this? The app wont even launch!
Dont big name apps have to pass certification like us mere mortals?
Methinks theres some double standards going on!

Ticomfreak says:

Higher profile apps get less scrutiny due to Microsoft's desperation for them.

TechAbstract says:

Sucks, there is no way to revert to the old app.

Djolle says:

I dont know what are all of you talking about?!? I updated teamviewer today and app start as usual, the only thing is it cannot connect?!?

Djolle says:

BTW l620 Serbia

amorenod says:

That was fast, new update available, works again :)

Ticomfreak says:

Crashed when I started it but an uninstall and reinstall has worked. Good luck!

Uninstall/reinstall worked for me.

iamoniwaban says:

I tried that. Didn't work.

sholokov says:

That's because it has now been fixed.

Uninstall the app and then works for me as I was experiencing the same issues.

TechnoTim says:

This app convinced me to switch from logmein. Thank you

sarim_xyz says:

The update has been fixed. It's working now.
