Great app

Been using for years. Great for quick admin work when away from laptop. Needs a little work on new iPhones with notch.

Works ver well

This app works very well. You pretty much have to pay the $30 bucks for the full version. The lite version has very limited keyboard use and will drive you nuts with keyboard switching. Even with the full version, using the onscreen keyboard will drive you nuts in landscape mode. Use portrait and you get all the keys on the screen at the same time, then if you want to see 132 characters in a report, turn it to landscape. For fun, I tried a Logitech MX 5000 Bluetooth keyboard with it, and that makes the app almost as good as a regular pc access to the AS400, except I could not get the function keys on the physical keyboard to work. So I used the onscreen fx key board and the fx hotspots in landscape mode along with the physical keyboard, and that is workable. For the most part, use this app in the portrait mode with the onscreen keyboard when you need something to carry around the office. In your own office, use your pc terminal.

Ideas for improvement. Let the user define keys as you can via a pc connection on Client Access, or give the user more buttons on the screen that can be defined by the user.

Overall, an excellent app.
