What's New in Version 22.214.171.124
I wanted to buy a Windows tablet because I need Internet Explorer to perform some tasks. This app allows me to access my desktop from my IPad and it's flawless.
Turned desktop into tablet
I have powerful desktop PC and now I can utilize all the touch functionality of Windows 8. It's exactly what I wanted. Great app!
My only suggestion would be to keep the app from losing connection and crashing when I turn my iPad off for a sec but other than that I LOVE IT. Will give it 5 stars once that stops happening!
