"it has saved me a few times in the past when I have left articles on my machine"
Saved him from going downstairs? If it was on the same wifi then the arcticle shouldbnt be that far away.
I give kudos to the makers, altho I don't see myself using it if I have to pay a monthly fee to access my pc outside of my wifi. Onenote works well enough for editing my stuff on the go.
I was able to watch a video(a bit laggy) from my pc on my phone which was cool. However, my music sounded terrible when I tried streaming it.
...I also see i missunderstood your initial comment. My appologies. This compared to most RDP clients, its supposed to deliver real-time video and audio. Also, it supports Windows 8 gestures, which i havent found on other apps.
The panorama UI is a bit rough but that's not the point of a remote desktop client. There are also a couple of other clients on the store that support true RDP.
my pc and phone are not in the same network and it is not working or maybe i missed something, help pls!!!
