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: WindowsPhoneApps.es

Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code changes by packaging them as an MSIX and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
