Surprisingly smooth and well thought out

willwalexander

Microsoft hasn’t been known in the past for smoothly interoperating with products from other software companies, but their Remote Desktop clients are an exception. Connections are smooth even over LTE and most of the Windows client features and options are available.

There are two input methods: a simple tap-based method which works well for UWP apps, and a cursor-based method that more or less uses your phone screen as a trackpad. The input method can be switched with two taps, and the keyboard can be shown with one tap.

The only thing I would like to see is a way to access certain keyboard keys that aren’t present on iOS, such as arrow keys. You can open the On-screen Keyboard in Windows, but a virtual keyboard being clicked by a virtual mouse being controlled by a touchscreen becomes pretty laborious to get anything done with.

Gets better with every update but still no Touch ID

VFRMann

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Client for iPad has always been a solid (and free) app that made it easy to connect to windows machines.

The App had some issues in the beginning but with every update Microsoft has really improved the App and added some neat features. The App is so good now it works nearly flawlessly. The latest release has a great new my Desktop page, and is very responsive to inputs.

I would give the app five stars if it weren't for the lack of Touch ID security (it’s very surprising and annoying that this app doesn’t have any security feature to launch it). It’s also limited to Windows machines. Adding Touch ID and the ability to remotely connect to Macs on my network would make this the best Remote Desktop app on the market.

Ok, but something is missing

Teconsultant

Microsoft Remote Desktop is an ok app on IOS. There is one feature I feel that it is missing, especially on the IPhone. Smart sizing. This I a feature that I take advantage of on my Windows machine all of the time. It would allow users to connect to their windows machine with a resolution that they are used to using. This feature is available for some of the third party applications out there for IOS devices. Zooming in/out is something that would be needed. Another component of smart sizing could allow a user to connect to their local workstation setup, which could be multi-monitor. Again, this is a feature that is available on other remote access apps.
