Nice Idea, but most recent 8.0.34 update has made it unusable

I have been using this app for the past year, but since the last update 8.0.34 it has become unusable. It takes several minutes to establish a connection, and then there is a black screen only. Within minutes of having a connection, it is lost again and the process repeats. I am using the exact same hardware as before, both computers are very new (less than 1yr old) with excellent specs. The network is also cable 80Mbit/Sec so I do not think that is an a matter of inadequate hardware or slow networks. Linking to ‘Report an Issue' takes one to a general message board.

Remote App Key Location

I have been using this program to use a Remote Application on a server in our building, everything worked correctly until a recent update, now when I log in the location of anything I need to click is not aligned properly, say I need to click an OK button or X out of a window, I have to position the mouse cursor below the actual button or X to be able to click on it, something is not aligning correctly, if you can fix this isssue the application will be great again!

Good but needs streamlining

The program works well, only thing that i would change is too add a setting that once you click on the icon the session opens imediately instead of the normal Remote deskop page, as i only have one remote deskop connection and it just waste time waiting for that to open and then click on the session to open the session. Effectively reducing the number of clicks to get the desired results. That would be a nice update.
