It's okaY

I love that it's lightweight and that it actually works (most of the times) (however there are times it just refuses to connect, unlike the web client), however it needs to be able to resize the window (adjusting the interface to the screen size would be awesome) and when idle or minimized it should pause the login not disconnect or lose connection. Also a general windows 10 interface update would be nice, options that the client has are not easily accessible through win10 anymore

No screen scaling options

Glad to see the tool on the platform, but running it on my Surface Pro 3 yields a tiny tiny font display with now way to scale it up. Host font scaling settings don't get reflected in target vm.

Great program - makes a huge difference to my working day and makes the Surface 2 a viable platform.

PCoIP = Yay! Disconnects = Boo!

Well, I am very happy to have PCoIP supported, and can now actually connect to my virtual desktop. The downside is that the client does not effectively run in the background. In turn, you have to stay within the client to remain connected to your desktop. This being said, the ability to actually connect to my virtual desktop trumps usability. Keep it up VMware!

Still needs some work

Its an ok start but its way below the desktop client. The app cannot stay connected in the background, it doesn't resume, it can't login as current user and many other options are missing. Its the only VMware product with the Modern UI, so at least VMWare provided a client, albeit not a very good one.

lacks background capabilities

My only complaint is that it can't run in the background and therefore times out in 2 minutes. This hurts productivity significantly when working on a tablet and need to work on another app for a couple of minutes.

App does not match the Release Notes!

Release notes stated added resolution option for high DPI devices. No where in the app can you find this feature.

Still Needs Work

The app times-out quickly, especially when minimized. Further, it freezes a lot while connected to remote desktop. Experience is very choppy.

Can't seem to get v3 working

Version 2.1 using the RDP protocol worked fine. Unfortunately having tested 3.1 and 3.2 via both RDP and PCoIP, nothing works. I get stuck at "The Connection Server is preparing the desktop/application...". UPDATE: The above was with a RT tablet. I've been working with VMware and they made me aware of this article: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2099979 which states that the Microsoft Store version of the View client needs at least 3 cores. As a test, I reduced my Windows 8.1 (full version) laptop to 2 cores and the regular version of the client worked fine, but the Microsoft Store version produced the same error as my RT tablet. Increased the core count back to all available and it works fine. So...why are three cores required for the MS Store version?????????
