1.2.9 rel is much better but still largely unusable

The chief problem seems to be constant disconnects with transport has received EOF and so on. Hmmm I mean that is an exploit almost! Also if there was a way to poll for server load say via snmp that would be very welcome to even just display at connect time.

There is issues importing another profile... the first seems to go well, the second does not prompt to add and then results in multiple identical profiles...

Otherwise the client does not crash and seems stable. Way more stable that the 1.2.7 release. Almost there just please quash this EOF received disconnect bug and another star. Add server load snapshot and you will indeed get 5 stars.

Connection More Stable (Updated)

Edit: Version 1.2.7 seems to have fixed a lot of issues, connection seems more stable. Have changed my rating to 4 stars.

Connection drops and never reconnects when phone sleeps. During normal usage there is no connection and then eventually dies (disconnects all together and never recovers). All configurations are set to try and get as close to “on demand” feature as possible. But it is just completely broken.

Works very well in my experience.

I have been using this app for several weeks on my iPad and iPhone and it has worked so far without a hitch. I would really like to see some tutorials on their website though explaining the items on the “settings” page for novices.
