Cross Platform

TeamViewer – Your Solution to a Cross-platform Life

Did you also just set up Windows 10 in the office, have a Mac laptop at home, run an Apache web server on Linux in your basement, check your email from your work- issued Blackberry, surf the web on your couch with your Android tablet and talk on your iPhone? If so, you’re not alone.

In January 2015 IDC released their quarterly report on PC vendor market share for Q4 2014, and Apple continued to increase their market share both worldwide and within the US, making them the 5th largest vendor globally with a 7.1% market share, and third in the US with a 12.7% share.

With the Mac only having a 2.88% market share in the US in Q4 2004, this is nearly a 10% increase over the past decade.

It’s a Cross-platform World

Regardless of the market share increases for Macs, enterprise is still predominantly a Windows-based world. However; when it comes to mobile devices, Windows Phone has a limited market share compared to that of Android, with latest Q4 2014 figures showing 2.7% worldwide.

All this inevitably means that many people choose to live a cross-platform life, moving between various platforms at any given point throughout the day.

TeamViewer – Available on the Platform of your Choice

The fact that TeamViewer lets you screen share and control a remote computer is great. That TeamViewer also works completely across all the aforementioned platforms is even better. Need to send your brother a file from your PC to his Mac? No problem.

Want to log into your Linux server from your Android device remotely? Go for it. TeamViewer makes it simple to work in a cross-platform world, so you can work from whichever platform you prefer.

If you find that you’re constantly switching between platforms, why not give TeamViewer a try and see how it can make your cross-platform life easier.

    I value TeamViewer’s cross-platform abilities because I do get assistance requests from people who run Macs while I run a Windows computer. For Windows users, I could stick wiht Windows Remote Assistance but TeamViewer can do the same job if not better and especially cater to the cross-platform reality.
