What’s New

Version 10.2.4

It's 2021 and time for our first release of the year.

First, we've made changes to the connection bar (which is part of the in-session user experience):

• The connection bar can be collapsed by moving it into one of the four corners of the screen.
• On iPads and large iPhones you can dock the connection bar to the left or right edge of the screen.
• A press-and-hold gesture on the connection bar magnification button reveals a panel with a zoom slider.
• The new zoom slider controls the magnification level of the session in both touch and mouse pointer mode.

Finally, we addressed some accessibility bugs and the following two issues:

• The client now validates the PC name in the Add/Edit PC UI to ensure that it does not contain illegal characters.
• Addressed an issue where the UI would stop resolving a workspace name during subscription.

We appreciate all the comments sent to us through the App Store, in-app feedback and email. If you encounter any errors, you can contact us via Help > Report an Issue.

Serious flaw lingering for a long time

First thing first, I appreciate the developers of this app for updating this app frequently.

However, some flaws need to be rectified quickly!

1. From an iPad (running iPadOS), when I login to a Remote Desktop session to a windows server VM and from there I login to a Remote Desktop session into a Suse Linux enterprise server, then the keyboard stops working completely. It only works if I press the shift key of the Remote Desktop keyboard which shows capital letters only.
There is a frustrating workaround to use the onscreen keyboard of windows server.

(Please note that this issue does not occur on any Mac with macOS.

2. Another issue on the iPad is while using the floating keyboard the special keys are not shown properly, they appear squashed and unusable.

Please rectify these issues !

Thank you !

Overall a good experience but the latest update killed my experience

Hello team, the app functioned exceptionally well until the update I was able to download .rdp files and the option to “copy to rd client” was available until the update. Now the option is no longer available and hence am not able to connect to my VDI inspite of downloading the .rdp file. Please fix asap

Developer Response ,

Support for RDP files will be added next month.
