Great RDP app

I started out using other apps but ended up using this because of how the hotkeys are native Mac hotkeys vs having to switch between PC and Mac, or having some third party software for hotkey configuration. This version is pretty stable and you can connect to mutiple RDPs..


Please Update

I use this program on my mac for our emr, I have no choice but to use this please please please coe out with a new update. This is so slow its killing me.


Draconian Licensing

Pro version does work good but be prepared to have the resources.

The licensing is so backwards... Use Vmware Fusion instead.
