    Great on Windows 7 and 8.1, but I get error 0x207 with Server 2008 r2, so I have to find something else to use. :-/

    Good app, but lacks options. No charms buttons, no resolution options, no way to connect in portrait mode. The good news is that what is available is solid.

    No gateway support on win phones, only Android and apple. Why would they leave it out for win phones?

    Awesome! Now what about remote assistance/control? Can you make the sound output thru the speakers of the PC you are connecting to?

    Best remote desktop app I've used.

    Where is the remote gateway support? All other mobile, tablet and desktop platforms have it, why not Windows phone? Embarrassing!

    Look towards Splashtop for inspiration. Allow your desktop account to remain logged in and you have yourself a five star application.
