Customer Reviews

Horrible and unusable

In fairness, the design is simple and quite nice.
But the connection is buggy, it drops every few minutes and there are no advanced options to fix misc. well-known problems.
If you file a bug, they talk you out of it.

Quite a few steps short of being the standard Microsoft TS Client we all know from Windows.
In one word: deceiving.

Now looking for other clients...
