What's New in Version 220.127.116.11
Great App but Scrolling isn't smooth
This app really gives you a feel for using windows 8 on a touch screen. It is an excellent app. My only issue with it is that the scrolling from side to side is not smooth. If I release my finger going fast I will get shot far ahead of where I want to go and if I scroll slowly, it feels like the app doesn't know where I want to go. Other than scrolling, this app has been perfect for me
This App allows complete control of my computer from anywhere, and when I'm in this app my iPad acts like a Windows tablet. Awesome find and adds a new level of flexibility to the iPad. It's a little slow over 4G, but still very functional. It's like I have two tablets in one.
Perfect remote for HTPC with win8
I recently tried the top 3 remote apps for windows 8 for iPhone and iPad and this one is the best. Definitely worth the $10. The iPhone version of this app is just okay but this one is awesome. You won't need a mouse and keyboard attached to your PC after you get this.
