Desperately needs better keyboard support
I use this app a lot on the iPad, for both personal and business use. Connections are very solid, and the interface is responsive. I find mouse support to be very good with my propoint. What is terrible is keyboard support.
Control and Alt are not recognized on iPad keyboards with the exception of ctrl+c, ctrl+v, ctrl+x. Even better would be support for the command key to remap to the ctrl key as on the Mac client. Either way, the current solution is so limiting for power users, no app-switching, no easy access to app shortcuts, etc. I find myself logging into my Mac remotely and then using the Mac client just to use keyboard shortcuts, but that slows things down significantly.
Please improve keyboard support.
Ugh!!!! STILL broken. Please fix the display issues on iPad 11” Pro.
If I select 1600 x 1200 on an iPad Pro 11, there’s a 1-2” strip on the right side of the screen that doesn’t display anything but the wallpaper. If you drag something over there or maximize a window, anything that is in that strip is missing. Still there, because you can click on where you ‘think’ things are and they are there, you just can’t see them. Also, the double tap and drag would be useful as well. Lastly, it would be nice if the sound only paused other sounds already playing and then resumed them. In other words, if you have music playin the background, it stops totally when using your desktop. Stinks. But the display issue prevents me from using this. Click on “App Support” and a web page says Access Denied.
Saved credentials bugged, copy/paste doesn’t work
Generally an ok client with good streaming, but not nearly as good as Jump and other RDP clients. Two biggest current annoyances are:
Saved credentials just does not work, you can enable the option, and it even prompt to save credentials, but you go to another app and come back, it has disconnected you and just prompts for credentials all over. Hopefully a bug that can be fixed.
Copy/paste doesn’t work. I can’t manage to copy any text into a workspaces session. Once I thought I managed to copy text out to the ipad. Again, just too buggy for production use.
The relative/touchpad mouse mode scaling makes the mouse fly around at a uselessly fast speed. That mode should be for fine control, but the opposite is true. Again see Jump for how to do mouse control well.
The connection status display just says ‘calculating’ forever, how long does it take to calculate a ping time? About 54ms I figure :-)
The radial dial has not option to disconnect _and_ hibernate/stop the instance.
