Great App but needs improvement

I am just wondering why the iPad App can connect OK without a password for the pd user but asks for a password when trying to connect via the web.

Couple of other things that need to be addressed are:

I am using an iPad Pro with the smart keyboard And if I remain connected to the host computer and switch back to the iPad then command/tab back to the Access App it loses the connection to the keyboard and will not bring up the on screen keyboard either. If you disconnect and re-attach the keyboard or close and re-open the remote control connection they the smart keyboard is restored.

Also I am connecting to a Mac Mini with latest OSX release and Latest Parallels Desktop and Access updates. When using a windows application like Quicken I have to switch to the mouse pointer otherwise the Copy, Paste etc pop up stays up all the time.

None of these are big issues, just irritating and thought they would like to know and try to correct them. Hopefully someone from support reads the reviews.

Overall it is a great app and I am confident it will continue to improve with updates. I plan on renewing as I feel it is better than Logmein or TeamViewer for my needs.

Best remote access app

I've tried them all and this one is the best. Sure it costs money but so do a lot of good things in life. You get both modes here: touch and mouse control. The file browser is useful. I like that it works without port forwarding. It's quick enough you can actually watch video remotely. I like how it resizes the screen automatically.

Horrible support and customer service

I am sick and tired of parallels forcing me to upgrade and shell out another $50 every year to keep the software running. They look for every excuse they can to force you to renew and get another version. On their desktop app if you install 3 times they lock you out from the app, and force you to buy again. These guys are sheisty. They used to give this app away free before they figured they could charge for it. Screw you parallels! People, there are free apps that do the same thing as parallels access.
