Reviews From google play store

Loving the simplicity and utility of this app. Feature-rich, convenient, and functional. There is one issue I have with it, which can be extremely frustrating. As noted by some other users, the Shift key tends to lock, meaning everything after will be capital letters or symbols. You can usually turn this off by tapping Shift again but causes significant issues with secure prompts because you can't see whether it kicked in. This is separate from Caps Lock and is not affected by the real deal.

This mostly works great. However, I am using this on my chromebook (15" display) at home while plugged into an external monitor (~21" display). Whenver I try to display the Windows Remote Desktop on the external monitor, the image is tiny (~11" display on a 21" screen). I have played with the resolution options built into the app, but all these do is change how big or small everything looks within that 11" viewing area. I can't figure out a way to fix this, and I haven't found a way to ask for help besides here.

Really good but there is a mouse issue. I access my work machines from my galaxy tab and I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse for it. all works well except when using the mouse to access the taskbar. the cursor stops just above it. I have tried changing the app settings and switching between mouse and touch mode but nothing seems to work for that issue.

Passable, but has issues that are not present in a standard RDP client (from MS, say). Running on a Samsung Chromebook 3, and keeps setting Caps Lock in remote session, only switches off when I switch away from the session and then back. Fonts in some apps (OneNote) look blurry (and I have disabled Drop Shadows on icons). Somehow it is involving my display adapter, which keeps flashing black-screen banners ("GXM" by Matrox), so is obviously not "headless"/agnostic as RDP is supposed to be.

The app in itself works great. You have plenty of options, and great control over your PC. HOWEVER: Using this app means you'll mess up your PC's configuration. The items in your start menu get moved around, items on your desktop get shifted, and even items in your system tray get moved out of order, or even out of the tray. If you're used to having things in the same place on your desktop: get ready to move them back after using this app. I love the app, but I absolutely hate what it does to my PC after using it, so I won't be using it again.

This app is good to use but when i used it in Dex, it always optimized to fullscreen and when it does that and i move my mouse to the top accidentally, it always drop down the top menu which is very irritating. Alternatively, let the app resolve to lower resolution so it becomes a window and we won't have that irritating problem.

This app has been awesome for the last few years as I have used it to connect to my office network remotely using a tablet with 4G service. Recently it has been terrible. It freezes about every 2 to 3 minutes, and I have to reconnect to the network each time, and then I can use it for another 2 minutes, then it freezes again. Over and over and over again and again. So frustrating! Can't accomplish anything!

Can't get it to work on my home network. Not sure if it's related to 2FA I've set up (windows hello), but it seems to not accept my password. App passwords doesn't seem to work either, and turning off NLA doesn't make a difference. It does get the computer certificate, so there are some sort of communication, but seems MS has some stuff they need to sort out. Currently unusable.

Best alternative to Google's old remote desktop client (for windows 10 system). Google used to install a programme on my computer and one on my phone so that I could control my PC(Google's app was FAR FAR easier to configure for windows 7 when compared to Microsoft's own app). Now the programme on my PC no longer works. Google forces the user to use Chrome browser instead. I HATE CHROME. Thank you microsoft for this app. Works very well with windows 10 although it is still a faff with windows 7.

Latest update fixes my connectivity issues from the previous update. Also, extremely quick turnaround on that fix, much appreciated! I would still suggest some improved error handling information in app in the future since I wasn't able to see anything except the app stopped working. Thanks!

Been using this since Win 7. Recommend it for anyone that need to remotely access their PC by remote desktop. Integrates my Note stylus and touch control perfectly with Windows 10. No camera or microphone support yet so can't use Cortana remotely. Don't waste time trying other apps. This one is simple to use and keeps getting better. No ads!

After the last update, on handhelds with a barcode reader, the barcode are transferred inside the rdp client only if the keyboard is visible. I hope it will be solved soon.

It works with my PC running windows 7 professional but it is very laggy so i can't play runescape on my pc with it but it works for running DOS windows 95/98/xp and linux mint in VM's with my PC's intel core i5 and nvidia nvs 3100m with 4 GB of RAM and see/use them on my Samsung Galaxy j3 Aura .Now it doesnt work because i deleted my password and thats stupid so i will find a different app that lets me not have a password but i can still log into my PC from my phone

Tried nearly everything to connect to my home pc from my phone on MY PERSONAL NETWORK and nothing. Well done Microsoft. I'm glad to see my £100 for Windows 10 pro went to good use....

I have a problem launching the Remote Desktop, on My PixelBook. I am using 2 external monitors at work and the Remote Desktop client just crashes, when trying to launch any RDP session. I would also be nice to be able to window it and move to another screen.

I downloaded this app in hopes that it would work better tgsn TEAM VIEWER and PHONE MY PC. Whike the app immediately identified my PC during setup, it would not allow me to sign in, stating that my Microsoft user name/ password was incorrect after just using the same user name and password to down load the app. I paid $49 for special service and remote desktop help from MS and after 4 sessions nobody still knew what could be done and most of the representatives we're not even familiar with it!

Cannot change the keyboard layout. When connecting to Windows 10 machine the app send en-Intetnational layout and add it to the machine layout list. (Even that en-US is already exist)

Good RD client but CAPS lock keeps sticking on remote session when pressing Shift, making it impossible to compose emails etc. If this gets fixed the rating is much higher

Constantly disconnects within seconds, appears to have issues with the GUI and higher resolutions. No issues with RemoteApps or on the desktop computer at all. Something is very wrong with this app (Beta too)

Would really like to see stylus support. The desktop version has this. Would love to use my pressure sensitive s-pen on my note 9. Also the ability to "un-pin" the top toolbar would be great. Would rate 5 stars if these features were implemented

It work great but I hope the options for menu ,search and keyboard can be hidden because it blocks most of the top of the screen when on portrait mode.

Amazingly simple and powerful tool for Remote Desktop Connection using phone. It helps a lot to manage my Windows VPS on the go without need of PC.

Stuck screen resolution on Chromebook with external monitor. It is stuck at Chromebook screen resolution no matter what I change the screen resoltion on the RDP menu.

Sometimes the interaction with the other computer freezes... I need to reconnect to bring it back.

App turned buggy after latest update. Now if I keep remote session idle for a while, then the session got hang and I have to relogin to connect.uninstalling the update. Very bad

App detects devices on LAN but will not connect to any of them. Remote desktop works fine on the same LAN when using computer has the host.

I have plugged 2 monitors on my pc, when connected to remote desktop then on my phone i can only see my 2nd monitor view and it useless, need fix

I'm happy. Yes, this app good for IT Management. Yes, you can use Manage Profiles. And portable.

Great app to be honest, its so stramlined quick and easy. It saves multiple pc's even and so quick access makes it feel unreal.

Fast, Straightforward, Seamless... Ironic that the Android version works so much better and easier than the Windows version!

Very useful. Keyboard could be improved to make the '\' easier to access.

The reponse time is nearly 1 second please make it more faster to 20 to 50 miliseconds not for free who elese want faster experience can pay for that every month please add this feature

Swiping up to show the navigation bar in Android registers as a Windows tap. This means I can't use Remote Desktop on my current device.

Latest update is very good because able to auto detect screen resolution. I used this everyday. Thanks.

Samsung and press dot. I connect to my computer, typing on the keyboard and when i press dot is displayed my screen backslash.

When mouse connected via OTG. Alphabetical keyboard get disappear. Have to hava a sttings to enable key board. No issue with numaric keyboard.

My computer program was stopped after the remote session discconnected. It do not happen when I use another remote desktop app.

Using this application makes my Windows PC inaccessible (login not showing on start up). very bad application

Since the latest two updates, I'm unable to remotely connect to my Microsoft user account, it constantly says the password or username are incorrect

Keyboard '$%^' character is issues. Please fix it.

The app doesn't work on android and I keep getting an authentication error. Not so from my apple devices

Works mostly fine but the mouse is a bit difficult to use when on touch mode

Works great for what I need. Allows me to access my work computer wherever I may be

Very useful app, but sometimes face problem while selecting files from explorer, difficult to adjust.

This app has broke my PC by not allowing me to even enter my PC password regularly anymore, was stuck without PC usage for an entire year!

The app is alright compared to google chrome desktop ....not as good .... moreover there is some video delay problem

so far so good. Haven't find any problems yet , during usages . Easy to use.

just connects to the remote comp and store my credentials. that's all works well.

it crashes on Android x86, 8.0, x86-64. No explanation.

i cant connect to any of my desktop after today's update, it keeps crashing

After update new version problem can't open VPS, now problem solved with update (

Reliable as always provided that i remember to the correct wifi network. Haha

Unable to move or resize windows. Unusable.

I likr the App. When i'm downloading a big App from Steam, I can look how far the download is, even when i'm not at home.

Very Good Application for Android and IOS devices to be available for Remote Desktop

Nice app, but this works with Windows 10 pro only not a thing for Windows 10 Home owners.

UPDATE: Latest update fixed the crashing issue.

I can't believe you can use it with mouse and native keyboard. Great app!

Doesn't work, despite the instructions I've followed. Useless app.

Overall good, would be good to change remote machine icons size

Microsoft could have done a better job making a more stable, more efficient app.

I like this app. So far I have my RPI4 conecting with my android phone.

Excellent tool for work when I am on call.

please fix problem when use device keyboard please fix keyboard ISSUE

It works great and has a clean interface

absolute best rdp client on mobile ive used. very surprised and impressed :)

Connect via cellular data after so much troubleshooting

Straight up does not work unless you connect to a static ip by ip because of a failure to see private DNS servers (which the chromebook itself CAN see). I need to be able to connect with FQDN for clients that don't have static ip's. How does something like this even make it out of testing? It's like entering the kentucky derby with a dead horse.

Very nice app. Smooth and helpful.

Fast and good picture quality.

Would be better is the shared clipboard worked again on note 9

works same as Desktop RD app, great.

Exceptional! Well done, Microsoft!

Number keys are not working while typing

Awesome app, all functions working 100%

Can't type properly the last month or so - there are constant keyboard issues - either the language won't change correctly or the punctuation it's messed up (slash instead of dot, etc.) It did work, thank you! I was trying different ways to fix this but nothing worked. I don't know what that option even supposed to be doing but disabling it has finally helped! Thank you!

Very Good Tool for remote access

Update: Updates and Beta still have the same issue. Only happens in RDP. All other apps respond correctly. New starting in late May when shifting to a capital letter it "sticks" on and requires another press of the shift key to return to lower case. This happens more than 50% of the time where I'm typing in the remote session and look to see that all is in caps.

**** HELP Since the latest Windows update, July 2019, I only get a black screen and a mouse pointer. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any solutions? Love to give more stars but it just isn't useful.

The app is overall good but there is slight issue the virtual machine runs very fast on mobile data but on wifi or stop it beomes terribly slow dont know what the issue is but this issue is being faced by my friends too.

Worked great for the last few years until recently... I dont know if it's because I got the S10 recently, but when connected to a session, the bar at the bottom randomly disappears and I cant access the settings or keyboard. I have to go to the Android home screen and go back to the app a few times for it to finally show again.

works beautifully. better than expected especially if you know how to forward ports on your router so you can access your pc outside your home network. i would give it 6 stars if I could.

This morning's update has left me with SHIFT key issues - I cann't seem to get out of what appears to be CAPS LOCK while in my session - I also at times have inadvertently been selecting all the text on the screen, and have to bash SHIFT keys to get rid of it. This app allowed me to get a chromebook - if it doesn't work properly the laptop is useless for my ability to work remotely. Please address!

I have used this app daily for a few years. I have a garage door business so I work on the road every day. I connect back to my office through a VPN and then use this app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab or my MotoZ phone to get on my windows office computer. It works flawlessly. It is as if I'm sitting in front of my computer no matter where I am. I use it on both my tablet and my phone (both are Android devices) and it is like running windows these devices.

After I got used to the controls this app works perfectly for my use which is to control my windows 10 computers remotely from my Oneplus 7 pro. I love you can set up custom resolutions (looks insane in 4k on the phone BTW) , deal with multi user accounts, screen rotation and no annoying ads interfere with the experience or at least I didn't notice them. Maybe what I would like to have is a in app reminder of the controls (like how to do right clicks) and an easy import/export feature the profile

this app is good, and even great!, but one thing be my deal breaker to give it 5 star, and its about optimization.. this remote desktop runs laggy in my phone, and kinda not well optimize

Easy to connect, but..... Been a while since I regularly used this app (been using team viewer up til recently). Connects just fine but squeezes whole desktop into phone screen making all the icon sit on top of each other and unusable. I'm pretty sure I remember being able to see whole desktop and pointer scrolling screen around it. Been through options but nothing seems to fix it.

Loving the experience so far. Remote desktop connects flawlessly. Hoping there's some log or info that can be provided by development team about the safety of the connections

I give 5 stars, I love the App made my work easier. But it would be great if you allow us to sync server information between devices (i.e : RD client on pc) using Microsoft account.

Brilliant. Works perfectly. Ever since Google gimped their RD and made it web based, this is now my go-to client. It even looks good in portrait.

Very good app very smoth communication with my servers

Does not work. I get error 0x7 even when I have followed setup directions closely. Also, "This computer can't connect to the remote computer. If the problem continues, contact the owner or your network administrator" What? It only states the obvious and tells me to contact the owner or network admin which does absolutely no help because I'm both. Why put an error code when it doesn't even tell you what the error is? Waste of time and effort.

I would like if you would add the following feature: When using a keyboard, hide the top 2 buttons for menu and keyboard, and show them by pressing a specific button. Please, think about it. It would improve the user experience a lot. In rest, the aplication is pretty well designed. :)

No desktop icon, not in app search. Adding a review because MS is clearly reading them. On my Verizon Note8 with all the current updates, the installation did not create an icon in the All Apps list and the app does not show up in the app search using any of the three words in the name. I have to re-open the app from the Play Store.

keyboard cannot type the number.

Connection Issues- I was able to connect successfully once, however any subsequent attempts is met with error code that password expired. It would be great if each login would be uniform, instead of having to guess what protocol is currently working. This app is very inefficient and time wasting.

Very well developed. Did not expect to connect remote desktop using Android. Could access every functionality of remote desktop using this app.

App closing connection immediately upon connecting with error: protocol error 0xd06. My server does not provide any authentication, no username. On Windows, RDP client works perfectly with that server.

After the last update the app does not want to show my session in full screen. It's very frustrating, it worked perfectly last week and now I can't even click a button. Changing the resolution doesn't even work. Please add a button or something to enforce a full screen display.

Used to work but I cannot get it to connect to an Azure joined PC. I can RDP from a regular computer just fine but the app just keeps insisting that my username and password are wrong which is kind of ironic because it used to work. 1 star for an app which simply doesn't do anything. At least offer the optiom to disable "enablecredsspsupport" so I can connect to the log in screen of the pc and sign in after I get connected. I tried disabling NLA as well. No luck!
