UWP app in need

Not as smooth on w10m. In great need of a continuum feature. Would ditch my work laptop and just use my phone if this were w10/continuum capable

Needs to be updated for windows 10

Doesn't work anymore on windows 10 mobile. It needs to be updated for UWP. Also needs to support continuum its a great feature and would make the feature 100x better if you could use Citrix to connect to VDIs

Needs refinements

Works ok but it logs out after a brief period of inactivity and have to log in from scratch very often. No easy way to avoid this. Very moody, oftentimes same configuration will work and other times it will not.

Messes with Screen Resolution

I tried this app vs. the full Receiver thinking it would prevent the freezing problem on v4.4. Instead, it didn't work across three screens and it changed my three screen resolution to 1200x900. I tried to resize the window across three screens and it crashed. I can't change the resolution back on v4.4 to be three screens unless I drive into the office. Now I have to work on a small screen all day.

Far from being reliable

Not reliable, recurrent issues with logging on.

Need to reinstall every time it closes

Every time the app closes, you have to uninstall and reinstall the app, otherwise it never loads.

Not Reliable Connectivity

I have been using this app consistently for 3 days now and it a disappointment. Connecting to my work's virtual desktop is hit or miss... I can either logon right away or it is forever processing my logon attempt. Needs improvements ASAP, please.

A Nightmare with Windows 10

I liked and frequently used Citrix Receiver with previous versions of Windows without difficulty. Have not been able to get it working with Windows 10. It downloads and installs, and seemingly connects with my workplace server, but will not accept my login credentials.

So hit and miss with functionality. Hopefully they release an universal app to work with continuum and get it working consistently.

Must support Continuum to be useful

With an update to support Windows 10 mobile this could truly be a powerful tool. Without it, it remains difficult to use, even on my 950XL screen.
