Keyboard usage needs a re-design
I use this app daily on an iPhone. I see two major issues, both related to the keyboard. 1) The row of extra keys at the top of the keyboard does not work correctly on the iPhone. You are supposed to be able to slide it left and right to access all of the keys. However, about 80% of the time performing the sliding action causes the keyboard to disappear. You have to re-open the keyboard and try it again. This makes typing a *very* frustrating exercise. The sliding action needs to be removed. I would rather have two rows of extra keys. Even better, one row with a configuration option to choose the keys you want. the keys also could be made smaller. Look how small the letter keys are on the iOS keyboard. 2) The second major issue I have with this app is the keyboard appears directly over the screen content you are viewing. I have used other remote apps that use some intelligence to “zoom” the content out or slide the content up when the keyboard appears. I find myself re-adjusting and re-zooming the screen content every simgle time before I can type, then when I type I run into issue #1 above. Seriously guys, the keyboard needs work.

Thanks for taking the time to report this and the feedback on what you would prefer. We'll definitely look into this!
Lets me get my work done, iPad Pro upgrade would be great!
This is pretty well implemented, with the consideration that doing remote desktop work on a system in a completely difficult paradigm is quite difficult! I've used it successfully on an iPad Pro 10" with a Smart Keyboard Cover and now an iPad Pro 11" with external keyboard and magic trackpad, and most things have worked as expected. I'm accessing a Linux NoMachine Terminal Server, so I'm obviously spending a lot of time in gnome-terminal. Copying and pasting into and out of that to the iPad works great.
With the new 11" Pro, I've noticed that the Nomachine app does not support the new screen aspect ratio; it's still displaying as 4:3, which is disappointing.
Additionally, two finger click on the trackpad is not recognized; click and hold is still the right click equivalent. It would be cool to have the trackpad functions fully integrated if a trackpad is present.
I noticed in another remote access application (VMware Horizon), that if an external monitor is connected, the app recognizes it and shows the remote desktop on that at full resolution, while the iPad screen becomes a trackpad. I'm not so keen on the latter part of that, but being able to put an unscaled resolution on the external monitor would also be really handy.
TL;DR this is a super useful app, with the suggestions I made above, it would be even better!

Thank you for your detailed feedback! The next release will fix this bug https://www.nomachine.com/TR03Q09200 for iPad Pro users. We are also working on improvements to mouse support for iOS in general and this will also include trackpad functions.The other feature you suggested regarding the external monitor, we've passed this on to our developers who will definitely evaluate whether it's feasible. Thank you! Keep nomachining :-)
I’ve been using NX on my desktop for quite some time and I’ve always been pleased with the performance and ease of use. The iPad app offers the same experience with only one drawback: Audio Streaming to my Bluetooth headset doesn’t seem to work! Instead, it will default to playing through the speakers (on my iPad Pro 11). Not a huge deal, but that’s the only thing keeping me from giving it a 5-star rating. I hope to see this addressed in a future update.
