    Seems unable to connect to a remote machine using a Microsoft Account to log on. Shows error 0x507.

    Good start, but it definitely needs Remote Gateway and RemoteApp before it becomes truly useful. Disappointing since Windows version already had this. This is a prime example of an app that should be universal.

    ConnectMe sends to be more full-featured. There is one huge problem, that I have, and that is the lack of saving your servers. There should be integration between the Windows Phone and Windows 8 versions of the software and OneDrive. As it stands, if you switch devices, uninstall, or reformat, you lose your connections and credentials. That's where ConnectMe shines, for me. You can save that information to OneDrive.

    Won't open anymore. No gateway support (when it used to work). Causes glance screen to invert. Otherwise, best client for connecting to Windows 8 and Server 2012.
