The Amazon WorkSpaces App connects you to an Amazon WorkSpace. Amazon WorkSpaces provides a fully-managed desktop service in the cloud. You can use Amazon WorkSpaces for all of your day-to-day computing needs such as editing documents, accessing web applications, and sending/receiving email. You need an existing Amazon Web Services account and to have provisioned a WorkSpace to use this app.
Closing the WorkSpaces app now expires the reconnect token. You can only reconnect to your WorkSpace as long as the client is running.
Ratings and Reviews
One key feature away from perfect
While ios does not offer mouse support, it does allow apps to implement mouse support. For example, Citrix app allows the use of the Citrix X1 mouse. So streamed desktops to the Citrix app enjoy mouse support. The same is true of JumpDesktop and the a partner mouse offering. While the virtual mouse implemented here is good, it isn’t so easy to do things like launch powershell with administrative privs. Please investigate enabling this support.
Little inconsistencies stop this from being a 5 Star review. Bluetooth keyboard works seamlessly, as expected. Typical iOS pinch to zoom work as expected as well. Obviously there is no mouse support, perhaps Apple Pencil support is on the way? For some reason, when I have video overlay playing the Bluetooth audio cuts out when I switch to the WorkSpaces client, weird!
Need some improvements to offset mouse mode
With Microsoft RDP, you can double tap and then drag to simulate dragging. As it is, offset mouse mode seems to have zero support for dragging which makes it almost a none starter for me. Every time I have to drag, I find myself having to switch to direct mode, and even then direct mode is too chunky to accurately drag what I want.
