  • No iPhone X Display resolution

    I have the iPhone X and when I use Microsoft Remote Desktop there is a big gap in usable screen because it does not adapt to the native resolution of the iPhone X. Please fix this Microsoft
  • Update your apps Microsoft!!

    By mrAssman
    Cmon guys no update after a full year? iPhone X still waiting for compatibility update. Is this the last app in the entire App Store to still be needing this critical update?
  • Works Great!

    It’s too bad so many people are giving this app poor reviews based on things that have nothing to do with the app itself. Yes, you need to have a vpn server in your home network to use outside the network. This is true of all rdp connections. Also, keep in mind your upload bandwidth needs to be sufficient to support the connection. I’m running 3 work stations on my home network with a UniFi controller and a usg with radius server for vpn. My upload speed is about 30mbs. This app lets me flawlessly connect to any computer on my network from anywhere on the planet through an encrypted connection. Oh, and it’s free. Yes, I’m not going to be working on spreadsheets on my iPhone but it is nice to have another way to connect in a pinch. Love it!
  • Surprisingly flawless

    Latest windows 7 update killed this app even after I tried to roll back the update. I force Network authentication so my systems aren’t vulnerable to bluekeep. Lazy patching on Microsoft’s part. I've got 3 Win7 pro computers running simultaneously and I'm switching back and forth without issue. I already had Remote Desktop running from a desktop, but wanted something to just "view" what was going on, but this app gave me complete control with my iPhone 7 and a Bluetooth keyboard. When you switch between apps it sometimes disconnects then wen you switch back the app reconnects faster than from my desktop. That really saves my data. The screen keyboard works, but you end up having to hide it or zoom in and out to see what you're doing. The Bluetooth just makes everything easy. This saves me from having to hotspot my phone and drag a laptop around. I think the negative reviews might stem from people's unfamiliarity with setting up the RDP. It can be tricky with multiple computers.

  • Keyboardless RDP

    By DigitalMathew
    Product might be usable if the keyboard worked. i can use the special extended keys and the ones provided by the app but the keyboard to type letters is 100% non functional.
  • A TS/RD Solution for iOS

    By BriComp
    Assuming you are connecting to a properly built Remote Desktop/ Terminal Server environment, this app is awesome. Inside/outside access, any of my published apps, makes the Apple brand useful in a corporate WinTel environment.
  • Slow Updates

    By HeyAHay
    This application has been very slow to get updates. The iPad Pro has been out for months, yet the application STILL doesn’t scale for the screen.
