What's New in Version 188.8.131.52
Nice app! Little tweaks and fixes needed.
I use this to control my PC that is connected to my living room TV and my main PC which also doubles as a Media Center system for the bedroom TV. St Touchpad is better than St Desktop in that it doesn't use as much bandwidth and my movies aren't choppy when the app is open.
The bad: Moving temporarily to another app always logs Touchpad out of the PC I was working on, so I have to reconnect. If there was background support and maybe a longer timeout, this review would go up a star.
There is also a crash anytime I restart, shutdown or log off a system being controlled by touchpad. If the app would simply log off and go back to the main screen, it would gain another star.
Nearly perfect app!
This app does everything that I would expect it to do and as promised. There is one exception though that is keeping me from a 5 star rating. If I could give it 4 and a half I would. The issue is that anytime that you leave the app and jump to any other app or just going to the home screen, the app completely closed and has to be reconnected to the computer...even if you leave it for a couple seconds. It would be far less annoying and more sensible for it to automatically reconnect. Rectifying this would make it 5 stars all day long in my eyes.
Works as advertised
Using an old XP laptop hooked up to my TV to watch recent TV episodes. This app is my remote control. Was worried about high cpu usage, which was an issue when using the Splashtop app to stream the desktop to my iPad in the past, but no such issues here. Entering the password whenever returning to the app is annoying though: I get the security issue, but why not give the option for a grace period? Maybe next update? Thanks for a useful app.
