Good app

The features inside this app are amazing! I can use my iPad anywhere while Remote Desktop on my tablet is turned on! Love this app! Thanks!

Disclaimer: Remote Desktop only works with windows 10 and other versions of windows may not suit this app. For your windows version, check the ‘about your PC’ in settings.

Doesn’t send keys to Virtualbox and VMWare correctly

Very old issue. Showstopper for me. Microsoft apparently haven’t cared about this since 2015.

Basically this iOS version doesn’t send key codes correctly to virtualised hosts. This essentially removes this app’s reason to exist.

I’m therefore giving it one star because it works with certain Windows hosts. Unfortunately for me and many others we need a RDP client to connect to general RDP servers.

Randomly forgets my password

I use this app on an iPad and it’s good other than the frustration of it ‘randomly’ forgetting what my stored password is. If they could fix that it would be five stars
