Perfect Just Like a PC…Except…..

Great, when it is on my IPad Screen, but where is Full External Screen Support. You are killing me, cant expand to out to Full Screen. I can do it with my Samsung Galaxy S10 using Dex, but not iPad Pro 12.9 5th Gen on iOS16. Surely it isn’t an “Apple Thing” restricting you is it Microsoft???? Are you planning to fix. A response would be great.

UPDATE: Not the best External Monitor Support Update…What am i missing, can only use the RD Client App and that’s it. Locks out using any other Apps. Forced to use it on the External Monitor. No point

This is the best Remote Desktop experience if you have anything other than Windows 10 Home!

I do think that it could be improved slightly to be able to see text cursors easier. I find it difficult sometimes to find the cursor when inline with text and coupled with the smaller screen size, it does some toll to my eyes. Apart from this little difference, everything is really just perfect.

Use app everyday - one suggestion

Have been using this app for years and with every version it has made it easier and easier to manage the full enterprise solely form my iPad (especially with the new trackpad support)

Only thing that would make it even better for me would be iCloud saving/ syncing, this will allow me to keep all the remote entires synced across all my devices and whenever I swap to a new device all of my remote desktops will be there ready to go.
