  • Needs iPad Pro 11 screen support

    By InfectedDread
    This is a great app, but it needs an update to support the expanded resolution of the new iPad Pro 11”.
  • Works well, but missing features

    By Brad_Green
    This does work pretty well on the iPad, though I wished it supported the new iPad Pro screen resolution. On this new iPad the app looks grainy and washed out. Performance is good, however, and allows me to access legacy Windows applications while I’m living in the iPad future.
  • iPhone X support?

    By Peterwaldi

    iPhone X please!
  • Not updated for new iPad Pros or iPhones

    By pseudopsyche
    Hasn’t been updated for the 2018 iPad Pros or even the iPhone X. Almost completely useless on iPad Pro, which seems like the best possible use case for this. No updates for the iPhone X that came out over a year ago? Is this app dead? Do you even care about your users Microsoft?
  • Needs full screen resolution

    By ShurickCA
    Please bump up the screen space usage on iPhone XR. Large section of screen not being used.
  • No help

    By Your Mentor
    Too difficult to set up.
  • No iPhone X display support

    By Josh Ray
    A year after launch and the display still doesn't support the full iPhone X resolution.
  • Works very well but needs iPad 11” update

    By Trooper2274
    I have been using this for some time with very little issues if any. I just purchased the new iPad 11” and noticed this looked to still be formatted for the iPad 10.5 screen. It needs an update to work with the new iPad 11” screen.
