Splashtop has abandoned the original (version 1) streamers and their clients. The latest version of the streamer application (18.104.22.168) has completely dropped internet discovery support for the initial Splashtop clients. Splashtop has abandoned their original paid clients in favour of a freemium subscription model. One may as well use the first party RDP client from Microsoft for Android.
Does not work Internet discovery does not work. I bought this app to be able to play games and control my computer from anywhere. Even using Streamer v2, internet discovery always gives the same password error. I want a refund.

Wasted my money Maybe this is a good up app but I wouldn't know. Can't find a single configuration that allows me to play full screen. I can use a windowed mode but I could already do that in splashtop 2. What am I getting extra? Doesn't except input from my shield controller either. I'll stick to the shield hub until they can deliver this app in a way that makes sense for people, who simply want to game without having to take a class at MIT.
Great idea...but They neglect to tell you that splashtop only supports full screen mode from games IF you have a nVidia GeForce graphics card. If you have an ATI Radeon HD you can only play games that support windowed mode... I bought this before I realized it. It really should have been in bold print somewhere. And I could never get the custom touch buttons to register correctly either. You can use a bluetooth controller through your tablet, but all my games are through steam, which until recently with their Steam Controller, only registered a wired or wireless Xbox 360 controller to play.
Revised This app used to be great. Now updating your graphics drivers means losing fullscreen for games. A quick search of the website shows many disgruntled buyers being told windowed mode is just as good. It's not. They did add controller support though if you're willing to run a command line prompt on Windows pc. It's supposed to be for Xbox but I use an ps3 controller and it works wirelessly rooted with sixaxis connecter on nexus 10.
