This release is pure **bleep**.

Ruins my access to my booksmarks, and forces me to use the "new not better" design.

Thanks for making a paying customer loose money, because of being unable to work.
Thank god the old version on my laptop still works, so it's definitively due to the update.

No more the comfortable, compact GUI with all on one page, only the "new", big, with the tabs, ugly and uncomfy one.

I have found the old version of TV and disable the Updates. So now I can work till they block 14 Version, as they made it with the old ones.
Shame on you Teamviewer team.

I will test the alternatives, and if TV will not hear the customers, will switch all firms which I support to another software.

You should hear the customers(at least commercial ones), but you did not.

I hate the new interface that is now being forced. Do you know what is the last version that still allows the old compact interface?

Thanks

v14.3 still works in legacy mode. This is what I did.

Full uninstall (settings removed), and fresh reinstall of 14.3

I think it's obvious from the few comments here the new user interface is not popular.

I  cant stand it and have turned it off from day 1.

I am also now looking for alternatives to Teamviewer

I agree. The new interface is a nightmare.

Why was I not able to find this change log when searching within the forum? I had to do a Google search to get here! In general the forum search is inconsistent.

Also, based on user reaction my guess is this latest is not popular and buggy. Suggest TVr re-think it. I'm holding off installing for now.

I think you mis-type line 3:

  • Removal of the popular user interface to decrease performance and worsen user experience.

New interface works fine for me. Resizing the window provides all the information required. Can't understand all the moaning.

1.It is bigger(and this is bad, because it has a lot of empty useless space), if you resize it, not all will fit in one window or it will be minimized to icons, without descriptions.
2.You need to switch tabs to get all function you need. In old one all functions were on one window, and it suits perfectly, no need to switch tabs.

They make the new one in Tablet-look, but this is the PC version, so no need to look like tablet at all.

So now, you need to do more, to get less, this is not the improvement for most of admins. But not for TV-team and you, as I see.

I think you didn't work a lot with the old good one or have only a few contacts.

Even with the cleaner look, I just checked a 1920x1080 screen (100% scaling) and at full height there is space to list 35 devices.
More than that and a scroll bar appears wide enough to be used with a touch screen.
You can also create multiple groups that can be condensed and expanded so you could display 35 groups of 35 devices (1225) before you ever get to see a scroll bar.
Can't think of a reason why you would need to view more than 35 devices simultaneously anyway.

The clean GUI design facilitates ease of use with Windows mobile devices like touch enabled laptops which helps Admins on the move.
An open layout and restricing information according to workflow reduces screen clutter and the likelihood of missing critical information.

If you are a frequent user, icons would take less than five minutes to learn.

I'm happy you have and use the touch screen and/or Tablet. As for me, I don't like the fingerprint and fat on the working display.

So make two version, for Tablets/Displays with touchscreen and for the PC with no touchscreen. This is not an Apple franchise, all app with the same gui, is it PC or smartphone.
It will be the best solution, and after force to subscription plan, they have enough money for two types of versions.

And I didn't talk about long contact list on the screen or scrolling, sure I use scrolling too, I talked about all function on the one screen (now you have 3 or 4 tabs for the same functionality). And my opinion was, only who worked less with the TV can admires the new GUI. But now I see, all who works with the fingers (not mouse/keyboard) and Tablet admires it too. And this is why all who have not touch display or tablets will be disagree with you. Because this is not a mobile app, this app for the PC with mouse and keyboard.

And you missed the second point, tabs, tabs, tabs. What’s for, if it all suits on one screen?

I have the classic version still, you have the "mobile" one, all are happy. At the end of subscription, we are moving to the alternative, so a mistake, which TV made, it will see only in the next 3-6 months. I think that`s why they do nothing now, because all still using they mobile/tablet app or the classic old version. Will see after 3-6 months, which announce they will make. "The new brand classic interface, you can switch on" )))

This is extractly what I am talking about, I put the same on their feedback and on other post but they would NOT listen nor even acknowledge.

Thank you Esther,

I had this propose to User Focus Program by e-mail last week too. I would glad to do it, but then I must work with only new GUI and with new GUI I can`t work. If it would possible in User Focus Program to use classic GUI, then I would participate.
