Needs Connection Specific Options

The app works well, but is lacking in options for individual connections. An especially necessary option is resolution for the remote machine, so that the user doesn't have to squint at tiny elements of the remote machine on a high-dpi display such as the Surface Pro 3. Remote Desktop Connection has this option, but it too fails to scale a lower resolution back up to fit the screen (and instead leaves ridiculous black-space around the remote display area).

Unfortunately will no longer open

Installed Windows 10 and I'm unable to open it now. It seems to crash immediately. I've also tried reinstalling the app. Maybe the error has something to do with "restoring user settings" at installation? Otherwise, this is a great app. I'm looking forward to being able to use it again.

Needs better settings

This is a nice update from the old RDP client. However, it is limited to global and not connection specific settings. If you deal with more than one network, such as a contractor may, it becomes a pain.

One fatal flaw

Please allow remote access to local storage just like the old app. Over all I think I would prefer this if I could access my local files while on a remote server.

Very nice. Required since long. Request you to create profiles as credentials can be same for multiple remotes. Further, show icons for stored remote connections.

use different multi touch gestures to control whether touch or pointer is in effect... also a multi touch gesture to open the keyboard.

Works Great

Just one more thing, please add the option to group connections in a folder or in a group "Metro Start" style, that will make it very convenient for people who connect to multiple connections. Thanks :)

Very nice working. Please add more personalization for graphical features control such as resolution and background hide

Needs a Lot of Help

This app has the potential to be great, but it needs help. first, it needs some form of tutorial, it's way to complicated and there is no assistance. Second, connecting to devices needs to be a lot easier, I tried on several occasions to connect my laptop with the app for my phone, and it would never work. as stated before, this app has the potential, it just needs the help. I hope you consider these changes and improve, thank you.
