I can't believe it: "Auto update for newer versions is now available."

It only took how many years. But hey, finally it's here. Thanks a bunch for adding this very useful feature. 5 stars!

Amazingly powerful, simple, easy-to-use program. Does exactly what it says - simple remote access for free.

I don't know the reason, but if I click an the download link I always get an outdated version 8 from Sept 2013

The problem stays the same, if i download from the official site.
Everytime I have to search for other download locations to really get the newest version

Can't they deliver a simple working download link????

Curiously, when I attempt to update within the app, it tells me that 9.0.25963 is the newest version available.

I just downloaded TeamViewer (full version), TeamViewerHost, and TeamViewerQS from their website and got version 9.0.27339 for all of them.

I don't like how the uninstall procedure is missing for Mac. Has instructions on their website for uninstalling for Windows and Linux, but not for Mac.

Makes me think Mac is simply an afterthought for the company and lowers my trust for them.

I should note they fixed a bug where I couldn't scroll down to uninstall via the preferences, so at least that's fixed. But they still really need to put this info in the website.

After searching their site in vain like you to find info, I found the uninstall in the program itself in Preferences. Very last tab, there is an uninstall option, including settings. I tried it and it does appear to remove the launch daemon and agent, as well as the app. using version 9. Similar to LogMeIn for Mac, i.e. the uninstall is buried in the Preferences/Options. Funny thing is, I had looked through all the Preferences before many times and never noticed it until I had a need to uninstall. Guess you really do only see what you want to see!

It's in the Advanced tab of Preferences. I didn't see it before because you have to scroll all the way to the bottom. It's not a 'one page' window and I never noticed the scroll bar till now.

Mcr, the problem is older versions wouldn't even allow me to scroll all the way down to click an uninstall button. It wasn't until 9.0.24907 that I could scroll all the way down.

There's a whole lot of options to do with this wonderful program. We can take control of any other computer [of course after it gives permission], our friend's or family's and solve any issue that they are having. Recording the sessions is a brilliant option, since we can always go back n correct ourselves in-case of any mistakes. It also includes the option to chat and share files. And while doing all this it remains mostly stable. Just wonderful! Comes much recommended from me.

If Logmein had been smart than they would make the free version at least one older than the paid version.

I used it to look at my iMac on holidays, hospital and such and would never pay for something like this but also I would not care when it had been an older version.

DISCLAIMER: I have NO reason or suspicion or inside information at all to think TeamViewer will discontinue it's free service for non-commercial use.

Having said that, this morning, thousands of LogMeIn Free users awoke to find an email from LogMeIn notifying them that the LogMeIn Free service was being discontinued as of TODAY, JAN 21. Anyone logging in starting today will start a 7 day grace period to either switch to LogMeIn Pro (paid) else the Free account will expire after those 7 days. Yes, there is and will be the massive whining and moaning, but in the end, LogMeIn will absorb the PR hit and move on.

There was NO prior formal announcement or notification leading up to this, although there were certainly 'warning signs'. (if you think about it, why would they give advance notice, they know they are going to get hammered, so just drop the bomb and deal with it).

In a statement to its investors (not users, investors), LogMeIn said: "the rationale is that remote access is a mature market — there’s no need to seed it any more with free accounts." In other words, they used to use the Free model to pull new users in, especially when LogMeIn was one of the few if only vendors offering any free option at all, counting on some % of those free users eventually would migrate to a Paid model, enough so to subsidize the cost of maintaining the free users. But with so many other free remote access solutions available now, that no longer makes business sense to LogMeIn, so why continue absorbing all of that cost for free users who will NEVER, EVER switch to pay.

As a LogMeIn user, I'm disappointed of course. But as a professional in this tech field, their decision makes sense. Their costs to support all the free users they had acquired in TEN YEARS, must have been STAGGERING!

So to anyone using TeamViewer, one does have to consider if the market will drive TV to the same decision at some point. Does the current market and business model they have allow them to eat the cost of continuing to support a free model?

Think about it, up till now, the number of TeamViewer free users may have been relatively small compared to their commercial, but FOR SURE starting TODAY, the number of free users is going skyrocket as many LogMeIn free users find somewhere else to go. I have no idea how many, but the number of free LMI users must have been huge, and they have 7 days to find some other solution. For all you TV users, sorry, but TV is about to get hammered by a large influx of ex LMI users starting today.

Let's be real; there are certainly a large portion of TeamViewer Free and LogMeIn Free users who use(d) the product for commercial purposes, that the two companies will never see a dime from. Eventually, LMI couldn't absorb;justify the cost anymore.

As the number of TeamViewer free users jumps after today, at what point does the company say "Holy cow! The cost of maintaining these free users is getting too high, and many are former LMI abusers who are never going to pay, even though they use it for commercial purposes. What do we do?"

Anyway, i think it is wise that TeamViewer users, FREE OR PAYING, consider that it is certainly a possibility down the road that the free service may be discontinued or modified (do we start seeing in program advertising to support the free?) This effects the paying customers too, absolutely. Guys, SOMEBODY has to pay for those costs to maintain the free users; either the paying customers pay for it in higher fees, or advertisers, or a combination, or it goes away.

The free LogMeIn is what got me to try it for a long time and other as well. This very often ended up with my clients purchasing a plan. Now I think they're tripping over a dollar to pick up a dime, but time will tell, I suppose. I predict after a huge sales slump over time, LogMeIn will go back to having a free version again down the road.

Very nice actually. The most important thing about this app is it’s FREE. If an app is fine and free, then that’ll be my favorite.

MacUpdate Admins -- the link you provide claims to be for the latest version (9), but in actuality the previous version (8) is what gets downloaded -- not entire clear until the app is installed, then you see what's happened. Please fix.

... after two times uninstalling Teamviewer and searching for all remaining Teamviewer files (incl. invisible files and folders), restarting the computer and reinstalling Teamviewer again it now "behaves" again normally, meaning that I can put it wherever I want on my hard drive and it still works.

Therefore, back to 5 stars for Teamviewer!

(PS: It would be so good if Macupdate FINALLY would create a possibility to change one's own postings. This is years overdue in my opinion.)

"It would be so good if Macupdate FINALLY would create a possibility to change one's own postings."

Agreed. All you can do is keep requesting it. The last time I sent a (respectful, as always) message requesting the ability to edit one's own posts, I received a reply saying "We're working on it." That was quite some time ago...probably at least a year ago, if I recall correctly. But so far, nothing has changed.

My view on the subject is this. MacUpdate has the highest possible proprietary interest in their site being a useful and valuable information resource, and accurate posts are a vital part of that resource. Things change. People learn (...well, some of us do, anyway). That process should be reflected in users' posts.

Of course, some people value their own posts so little that they won't even understand the value of editing one's own posts, much less care about it. Nevertheless, MacUpdate users who are willing to take responsibility for whatever they post here should at least have the opportunity to maintain the relevancy and accuracy of their posts without having to clutter up these pages with unnecessary extra posts for updates and corrections.

The overall improvement to the quality of the MacUpdate resource would be enormous, and almost all of the effort would be expended by users. It's hard to see how there is any downside in such a win-win configuration change.

For my part, I'd be motivated to become a premium user, because I think the increased value would justify the cost. But without the ability to edit my own posts, I'm far less motivated to even post much content in the first place, let alone become a paying member.
