    Good but 3rd party app 2x RDP is still better. Not quite sure how a 3rd party app was 1st the have RDC and then still out do the OS developer... I think MS wants the WP8 line to die. WM 6.5 OS was way better than this.

    Pretty good. Wish it supported RD Gateway. App crashes when trying to enable mouse on Lumia 920 with the 8.1.1 Dev Preview OS.

    This is an extremely useful app. But I hope it can run metro apps with this.

    why i cant install it?
  • by Aaron 11/16/2014
    Good start, and well done on the ongoing improvements, but it definitely needs Remote Gateway and RemoteApp before it becomes truly useful. Disappointing since Windows version already has this. This is a prime example of an app that should be universal!
