Used to crash/disconnect a lot making the app unusable,but lately the connection is super stable,it even stays connected after running for a long while in the background,really happy with the app.Seems the issue may have been fixed I suppose (or it was my phone/network,though I didn't change anything on my side+my Windows VNC client worked perfectly..maybe a Samsung phone issue..).Btw i purchased aRDP Pro to get sound, both are wonderful apps, thanks for the amazing work. Will purchase here too.

EDIT: Still haven't heard back, please email us at support _at_ morpheusly _dot_ com or at least update your review... Additional piece of info, the Pro version allows you to lock the whole app with a password. I noticed you're using an older version. Is it happening in the latest one v5.2.9? I cannot reproduce the issue at all at the moment.

Got this to use with my Computer via PiKVM and works very well. Has been working flawlessly and haven't had any issues in the 2 years I've been using it. I appreciate the developer commenting on and addressing the issues I did originally bring up.

Update: Thanks Marc! Previous reply: The 1st issue is because the software is trying to correct for erratic input from the Android subsystem, avoiding rapid mouse jumps. UPDATE For the second issue, please see:
