    Having an incredibly hard time to install and setup. The website for help is worthless. Or should be seamless of its going to compete with Apple and Google. Installed on laptop, phone, and tablet; no go.

    Love the application, but it needs Gateway support for it to be perfect.

    Absolutely incredible. If I could use a BT mouse and keyboard on my 1520 this would be the only remote machine I would need on a short trip. Kudos MS dev team!

    This app is just awesome. I don't know why people complain that Windows Phone doesn't have apps. Windows phones are the most productive phones, than any other phones on this earth.
