TeamViewer is an application that lets you remotely access computers from your iPhone. The application can be used to provide your friends and family with technical assistance remotely. It can be used to access documents and applications installed in your work or home computers while you are away from your desk. It makes it possible to view and interact with your desktop computer, reboot the remote computer and to gain access to your files. When using all remote access applications, it is wise to read about the possibility of security concerns before installing these programs.

6. Australia
Knife Dancing (games)

Knife Dancing is a virtual version of the dangerous knife game of the same name (also known as "5-finger fillet"). Players choose a sharp object from the range of crayons, pens and knives and use it to stab in between the five fingers on screen. Users must stab in succession without causing injury to the hand. Choosing a less dangerous object will assure you a couple of mistakes, while accidentally stabbing a finger when using a very sharp knife will result in a loss of life.
