    The older version is covered in our Remote Desktop tutorial, Part 5 shows the basics of the Remote Desktop App. There has been a few visual changes, the tutorial will be updated as soon as I get the screenshots done. Anyway, the use of the app has remained the same, tutorial applies even before the update :)

    Hummm I use it a lot not this new version thou. I assume it still won't wake up my 2nd computer thou. That would be a great added feature, so I could get rid of the 3rd party program I have to use to wake my 2nd computer up BEFORE I use RDC.
