I absolutely loved this app and use it daily however since upgrading to an iPad Pro specifically to enlarge the screen size for my Remote Desktop I have become quite frustrated with the app as it only fills about 2/3 of the screen meaning it is no better than the iPad I had before. The app could do with an update asap for this to keep with updated hardware. I also notice lagging issues frequently and can only seem to access on WiFi. This app is great but needs updating to make it as good as it can potentially be! I noticed someone else already noted the screen size issue on iPad Pro 7 months ago but it seems nothing was done.

Great (nearly)

The app is perfect! Easy to use and connects to my pc straight away even on 4G on my iPhone, would be good if it had a built in ability to do magic packets and WOL but still the app itself is great! The only minor is that the connection can drop out a bit every now and then, even when I’m on WiFi on my phone. Bar that it’s great 👌😊

Significant problems with iOS 11

I’ve successfully used RD Client for many years but since upgrading my iPad to iOS 11 it is now almost unusable. It locks, it loses the keyboard, it has massive time lags and it appears to regularly restart when connected to my Windows 10 system. Before the move to iOS 11 I had no difficulties with my Windows 10 system.

Please fix as soon as possible .. 😟
