Fixed the bug where you had to tap twice on the same location to actually do a click on Shadow.

Great, but a little janky right now
This is by far the best streaming PC experience I've ever had, and this is in comparison to even streaming a computer through various remote desktop software on a 1 gigabit internet line (here in Chattanooga). However, not having native Windows touchscreen gestures and automatic keyboard input of a physical keyboard on an iPad (iPad Pro 11 specifically) makes this fairly cumbersome to use as a productivity computer, and that's a little disappointing considering HOW GOOD the streaming is using Shadow on my internet line, and the fact that I'm not planning to use Shadow primarily as a gaming PC (with a controller) but as a powerful productivity computer.
If this app had input similar to TeamViewer's experience, then this app would basically be perfect and I would not have any major complaints.
Also, there are bugs currently with custom resolutions here on iOS. When setting the resolution 2388x1668 (to properly fit the entire display of my iPad Pro 11), there were considerable scaling/cropping issues that made it so that either: my input was offset by more than 100 pixels in a direction with some weird scaling or cropping issue, or that my entire screen was black (even when exiting and reentering the app or reconnecting) and the computer would not respond to shutdowns. It was a fumble to get working but I was eventually able to do it.
Controller games are good, but mouse and kB games a janky
When I first got this app, I loaded up GTAV and played with my MFi compatible controller for about an hour solid, while at my desk, on my iPad. I didn’t even feel latency or notice a difference from my desktop experience. However, when I tried to play a game that required cursor input, things got a little hard. When trying to play WoW, mouse moving the camera is not an option. Also the keyboard controls don’t work unless you have the show keyboard option selected with the Smart Keyboard. Next, I tried PoE. I found that I could move around but I wasn’t able to press any key bound attacks (QWERT) to actually attack. If this could work, I would def play sitting on my couch with my iPad. The inputs to move didn’t seem to have very much latency at all, definitely playable. Lastly, I did load up Cities Skylines and played that for a little bit. It works, albeit very awkwardly. To move you have to push your finger to the edge of the screen and drag back and forth. Also to do any other camera controls, you need click every thing, the Smart KB didn’t seem to have any response when trying to use the buttons.
If the kinks with the Smart Keyboard were worked out, this would be a viable experience for mouse and KB input games on iPad. Currently, the only experience you can really have is one with a controller, which sadly is not a lot of the games I play.

Hi Sflores91, thank you very much for your review!
You raised really good points, we know that the user experience using Shadow on a mobile device is not as good as we want it to be.
Apple announced a few days ago compatibility between some of their devices and the Xbox one x PS4 controller. I hope this will make your game sessions easier using your set-up.
In the meantime we will be working on finding great solutions for mouse and keyboard games.
Thanks for supporting us!
Touch Input Dose Not Work
Everything was going well until iOS 13 was released. The Shadow application doesn’t work well on my iPhone. It doesn’t accept input, I’ve had to install another remote application to my Shadow. I’ve deleted the app from my device and reinstalled it, issue continued. I find it kinda silly that I use the Shadow app to start the Shadow and then use TeamViewer to actually use the Shadow. I don’t normally use my Shadow on my phone but I like to make sure Windows is up to date and all of my games are up to date while I’m away from my Host computer. I hope this issue is fixed in the future updates.

Hey AustZeek, thanks for sharing your feedback about the app since the iOS13 release. We've recently released a version of the app into Beta that has an updated interface, including on screen and touch controls. I'll be sure to pass your feedback on the current app to the development team so they can investigate to improve the functionality, but please feel free to provide feedback if you have the time to test the Beta app, available in TestFlight!
