Great Work!

One of the best and simpliest RDP clients for Mac. It even tops the version for Windows. Keep up the great work!
One star left, when the connections can be synced over iCloud or OneDrive.

Great app, could use a little bit work

The app in itself is great, but I wonder if the engineers making it actually use it. The main problem is that when you move the mouse near the top of the screen in full-screen mode, it brings the macOS top menu bar, which is very inconvenient when you're trying to close a window. This should be addressed (with a setting to disable the bar and dock for power users, showing a warning that it might be difficult to exit full screen), as users have been complaining everywhere for the past 7 years or so.
