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.

One last issue on iPad

The app is becoming great and virtually free of bugs, very happy with this tool. One last thing: the screen of the iPad has unfortunately round corners, whereas computers use right angles displays. The app could correct this weakness of the ipad by ticking an option to ignore pixels in corners. Instead it tries to find the max feasible resolution on the ipad screen to display a rectangle and a good part of the screen is not used because of the corners. I still give 5* to the app because it is a design flaw from the ipad, but it would be amazing if this app could do something to maximize the display! Thanks.
Edit: the problem of ipad round corners has been mitigated in options where you can choose to cut corners. many thanks

I used Remote Desktop every day on my iPad Air. I had to do a full reset due to major problems with the iPad last week, but Remote Desktop wouldn’t re-install. I’ve now discovered it’s because it’s for IOS 13 only now and my iPad can’t update to that as it’s too old. Grrrrrrr! Please can you sort it so that the millions of users who don’t want a new iPad can use it if they have to do the same as me? The other alternatives are no match for Remote Desktop.

Update. I had a response from Microsoft who told me to go to the App Store, find my purchase history, and download the older version from there. Thank you Microsoft, I have my beloved Remote Desktop back again!

Developer Response ,

You can install version 8.1.42 on your pre-iOS 13 devices by searching through your purchase history in the App Store.
