  • Works well as is, LACKS needed features.

    By A. Hill 08
    This app runs well, and does what it claims. BUT You can only connect to a computer that uses the default RDP port. If you have 2 different computers on the same network, and have adjusted all of the necessary settings for the secondary (and so on) computers RDP listening port to be anything other than 3389, you simply cannot conect outside of your network. So the only way I have found (other than using a 3rd party app) to remote into more than one computer on a network is to remote into the computer on port 3389, then from that computer remote to the other computer on the network you wish to control. This seems absolutely INSANE to me that this feature is not available.
  • Why the constant updates?

    By Geeky Professor
    I like to use this app all the time, but am becoming annoyed/concerned at the constant updates that it seems to need. I understand it could be Apple messing with specs for anything Microsoft, but why does it always need fixing? Remmina in linux has been very stable. Is Microsoft changing RDP protocols for security (bug) reasons?
  • Was working until this update

    By Romeo0119
    This update basically broke everything for me. I can connect to RDP server just fine. But once I'm in there, I cannot click on anything. It just doesn't work, it was working beautifully on an ealier version. Please revert.
  • Progressing

    By SamuelBTL
    I feel like there is a good team focused on the development of this app and it is progressing and moving forward. One feature I would like to request is the option to "Hide Dock Icon". Typically Mac apps offer this when they offer the option to "Pin to Menu Bar" (which is a great option that already exists). This is probably the #1 feature that would push my review to 4/5 stars.
  • Works better than Desktop 8

    By Bronson 5247
    I was able to import my 30 odd desktop connections from the older versions. I haven't eperienced any crashes so far and its a lot better than the older version.
  • Constant Freezing - Find something else

    By Nevrsurrender
    This tool had so much potential and can do a lot for people. However, like Microsoft, it looks like it csn promise and never delivers. Want to cripple the app? Use your clipboard (glad it's a fringe use case).
  • Works as expected

    By MeghnaNatraj
    I initially gave a bad review. But updating it. To be able to use multiple screens, you need to select that option externally (from the user interface where you download the rdp client, in my case - in the company login interface which had a small RDP connection settings which finally had an option to switch from single to multiple screens - phew!). I wish there were options in the app instead to support it. otherwise, it’s great overall!
  • Was working fine until the most recent update

    Oy. I can't get into my desktop at work now thanks to this latest update. Worked great until the messed with it again.
  • Flip flops between working and broken every build

    By cl0wnshoes
    For such an important application you'd think the QA would be better. It seems like every few versions there is an annoying issue with the application. Previous version crashed constantly from what seemed like typing too quickly. Current version has something going on with it where my mac becomes unusable when the RDP app is running (seemingly at random, some days it is fine) though activity monitor shows nothing. Really annoying for someone that relys on RDP to work remotely.
  • Keeps randomly crashing

    By Sreekanth Acharya
    The app was working great until the last couple of updates. Now it keeps crashing on me randomly. I am actively looking for other free RD tools to replace this until they fix this issue.
