Not just Windows!
I've got this doing remote session to Linux on my Pi with a full X session. All that was needed was the standard port forwarding on the hub and away it went. I can now administer my Pi from my iPad as well as access all the apps on it. As far as I know, this is the only IOS app to do this.
There are a few tweaks I would like the developers to add for this and I can't believe it would be too difficult to do.
1. The mouse control on Linux doesn't seem to be that good.
2. When the iPad keyboard is active, the screen goes blank currently. It would be nice to see keys being echoed in the Linux app. Having said that, I have been able to use LibreOffice without problems, which probably the most demanding app.
Note that these are not complaints. The app is designed for Windows - not Linux. I just think that with a bit more work, the market for this would be wider.
Could not be more delighted with this product. Absolutely perfect. Connected straight away and instantly extremely useful remote admin for a win7 pc. Terrific value for the price.
Superb. Works first time connecting to work database. Brilliant.
