Ratings and Reviews
I’m reviewing the iOS app specifically. I’ve been using Splashtop Business for several years now, and been largely happy with it on PC/Mac, and it seems to work well even on iOS with one caveat: It absolutely destroys battery life. If I forget to force close the app, it will tank the battery on my iPhone 8 Plus in a matter of hours. Another user posted a review, and Splashtop responded that this was a known issue and it would be fixed in the next version. That was six months ago. Why is it still an issue?! I don’t know what the app is doing in the background (it’s not supposed to be doing ANYTHING,) but it is using a whole lot of battery. I wonder if someone is mining crypto currency or something?!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review, and sorry to hear that. But we can assure you that our apps are not processing anything else in the background. We offer fast and remote access solutions and our applications are tailored for only this purpose.
The behavior you mention is known and will be resolved in the 22.214.171.124. version update. This is a major update and therefore takes longer than usual. Thanks for your patience.
Needs update for newer devices
Works well, but needs to be updated for newer devices. Devices such as the iPhone X and newer will have the screen cut off on the top and sides when zooming. I’m constantly switching between landscape and portrait to see the side of the screen!
Reply: Update your app. Changing the resolution of the remote computers is not a viable solution. The app should properly handle zooming with any resolution. The top and bottom should be considered. See Apple’s app design documentation on “safe space.” Also, check out how other apps handle this correctly. TeamViewer is a good example.

thanks for your review. We would like to earn your 5 stars. Could you please try using different resolution settings to find the best fitting one for your use case?
Fails on iPhone
I’ve had this app a while. It worked at first and I was satisfied but for 3 months I’ve been unable to log in from my iPhone. No luck with Splashtop support. I only give it a 2 because I can still use it if I have access to a pc or iMac to access via browser.
Update: support has been working with me. I’m able to access with iPhone in non-wireless mode. That’s an improvement and I’m encouraged that they will find the complete solution. Upgrading rating to 4
