What it says on the tin

I felt compelled to write this review given the current low rating of this app. It connects to my college’s remote desktop service without issue and is very useful, and I don’t think it deserves all the hate given that it’s free!

does the job, but not rdweb with windows server 2016

I can’t complain too much as this is free. I’ve used it mostly in the past for connecting to RDWeb portals and running published applications.
It works fine with RDWeb running on Windows Server 2012R2 or earlier.
It doesn’t appear to work (at all) for RDWeb portals running on windows server 2016 :o(

Does the job.

Does exactly what it states, and its free.. How can you give it less than 5*?… Thank you.
