Customer Reviews

Please keep up the good work

Things aren’t always perfect, but it is by far my least troublesome Microsoft product. Please keep working on this and updating it. It is a huge part of my day, and I’m grateful that you put in this much effort. Thank you!

No more Virtual Machine / Parallels

I love this app, it has really changed my life. Setup was not too bad with the help of my IT department. Now i can connect to my work computer from home (in seconds) on my macbook pro and it performs 10x better than my Virtual Machine ever did. The best part is my macbook pro is not being abused, as this app is very lightweight. Microsoft you have done an excellent job on this app, never stop improving it i beg you. THIS IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL APP ON MY MACBOOK PRO

New version looks like MS-DOS

I wish I had shut off the automatic updates. Terrible quality.
