I'm used to being disappointed by Microsoft Software - this however is a clear exception. From experience its suitably stable with only one minor hitch with connection issues. The implementation is great with you easily being able to switch between mouse and touch and handling multiple monitors like a charm. Kudos to the development team.
Getting There .. The past few updates have brought some indispensable features. The most recent one added portrait rotation, but changes display resolution when the device is rotated. When you set a 1920x1080 resolution, in portrait the resolution changes to 1080x1920. This is not only annoying but also makes this app useless to me until this is fixed.
Works OK, but it used to allow copy/paste between remote and local. That seems to have been eliminated. Please consider making it elective from the advanced settings. I use copy/paste to move small bits of data back and forth, like meeting phone numbers.
I gave it 4 stars because it doesnt seem to have the direction arrows in the custom keys, which are necessary since they arent available natively on the android keyboard. Please add arrows and this app is worth 5 stars! Well done Microsoft.
I have a Huawei G620sL03 and it doesn't work at all. it doesn't connect and says :"make sure your computer is on and it's connected to the same network" uuh I have been listening to Spotify and controlling it from my phone for like an hour...
Latest update resolution issue. Since the latest update the remote desktop resolution is completely out. Portrait is all squashed and landscape is not full screen any longer but squashed to the center. I have tried changing screen resolutions with no luck. -update. Issue is now fixed. Thanks
You can lock the orientation (landscape, portrait, or auto-adjust) for your remote sessions globally. In the app go to Settings > Display.
Note: If you change this setting while connected, you won't see the change until you reconnect.
