Significant problems with iOS 11


I’ve successfully used RD Client for many years but since upgrading my iPad to iOS 11 it is now almost unusable. It locks, it loses the keyboard, it has massive time lags and it appears to regularly restart when connected to my Windows 10 system. Before the move to iOS 11 I had no difficulties with my Windows 10 system.

Please fix as soon as possible .. 😟

Works great


If you don’t understand RDP then don’t use it. Most of the bad reviews are because people don’t know what they’re doing. Use Teamviewer or LogMeIn if you want something easier. Works great for me!!

Works as expected


Works fine for me but would like higher resolution 1600 X 1200 as an option as all my windows get squashed up after using this to connect!
