Customer Reviews

Works Well

Overall the program seems to work well. I use it on a daily basis to connect to Microsoft Azure resources.
It would get 5 stars from me if it had the Server Name title bar on the top of the window in full screen mode, like RDP sessions in Windows have.
This would make it a breeze to able to swipe between full screen windows for servers, and know that you’re in the correct session.

I don’t have any of the display problems that others seem to be reporting.

Needs some work when connecting to remote resources.

Has gotten progressively worse with each release.

As of 8.0.32, remote resource windows now do not draw properly. They have a large black swatch at the top, and the bottom of the window is cut off, as if the application window is not fitting the mask properly. As a result it’s nearly impossible to resize something.

Avoid if you can.

Scaling fixed, more to be done!

The scaling has been fixed! from 3 to 4 stars!

BUT - It is time to include grouping and drag/drop function. i should be able to drag and drop hosts up or down.
