It's time for a quick update. In this release we added support for the iPad Mini 6 and addressed an issue with Slide Over windows and keyboard interaction. Thanks for all the feedback. We're working hard to make this app great!
Ratings and Reviews
Better now, -but- …
This app got better over time and I was really happy with it, but now it appears a recent update completely changed the mouse clicks.
I use to just tap once to click, but now one tap does nothing and I have to tap twice to click.
Right-click was a simple long-press. But now a right-click is apparently two-taps using two fingers??
Not sure why this changed but liked the old way better. Looked for options in settings hoping I could set it back, but no go.
Stuck with this I guess.
Overall this app runs smooth and a good way to jump into a machine for quick tasks. I mostly use it to apply updates and reboot Windows machines now.
Have not tried on any Linux boxes lately, so my original review may/may not still apply. I use VNC app for those which is awesome on those.
—— original review——-
I used this for a while on my iPad to access a Linux system in the house. Worked perfectly great for a while, but at some point an update broke the keyboard input. I can connect to the Linux box and point/click on things fine, but cannot get any keyboard input through to it. Both physical and onscreen keystrokes do not go through. RDP from a Windows machine to same Linux box works perfectly. Something in this app broke.
Useful app but please help with keyboard issue and split screen!
Update, First of all, the Dev feedback so quickly is much appreciated. Even more so is that the issue has already been resolved before the major update coming in December! The RD app no longer takes over all keyboard inputs when using slide over, works just as it should. Thank you very much for the quick resolve to this that helps my workflow go more smoothly! -Brad I’ve got an IPad Pro with attached magic keyboard. I use this app to run a virtual PC for a program for work. With my RD app open, if I have slide over open to type down notes for example, the RD app takes control of the keyboard inputs after about 3 seconds. It used to do this only if I clicked the little keyboard symbol at the top of the RD app but now its each time. I’ve uninstalled and re configured my virtual pc’s but it remained. There have been 2 RD app updates since I’ve noticed it and it keeps occurring. This is very frustrating for some of the tasks I have to complete on this, almost requires me to buy a laptop to be able to actually multitask like I used to a month or so ago. Also, this is more of a wish but please try to configure the app to support true split screen and not just slide over! It would be very helpful if this app could resize the way other apps do but RD app will not resize, stays full screen and says its not supported. Thanks for the useful app!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. This issue will be fixed in version 10.4.0 tentatively in December.
Excellent RDP Client, But Not Perfect
This RDP client is excellent. Very smooth and intuitive! Performance and graphics is pretty great. I give it 4-stars because there are two issues that kind of bother me.
Issue #1: Once connected to the session, you can’t hide the tool bar at the top. In older versions, you were able to hide it, and it would simply have a small-transparent pulldown to select the keyboard. Now, it cannot be hidden and instead can just slide left or right. If you have a browser open with multiple tabs, the toolbar is big enough to cover one of the tabs.
Issue #2: If you’re connected to a session, and you switch apps on the iPhone, when you jump back to Remote Desktop, sometimes the display is messed up. The session will only show half of the screen, or the remote images will tear and essentially won’t refresh and stay partially stuck on the previous image. The only way to correct it is to disconnect from the session and reconnect.
