    It is funny when a microsoft apps is run better on android/ios platform instead on microsoft's wp. Here, -on wp- RD Client only has basic funtion, compared to the same app on Android/iOS, where they can have RD Gateway and connect to RemoteApp (preview)

    Terrible, keeps saying my credentials are wrong even though I know for a fact they are correct. Guess I'm using teamviewer.

    Great app.. Light and responsive. Thank God someone is working for apps on Windows Mobile. Still there are some issues with glance screen when this app is used. Hope they get fixed on future releases.
