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 (opens in new tab). via: WindowsPhoneApps.es

After update App goes crashing! i tried re-installing still fails!!
Any one having old version installation file ..
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Microsoft should be catching this stuff during app certification. Sad.
Dont big name apps have to pass certification like us mere mortals?
Methinks theres some double standards going on!
