    Hey Brink:
    How does this tool compare to ordinary Remote Desktop Connection? I use RDC/RDP all the time to access the half-dozen-plus PCs, laptops, and tablets I work with and really like it. From what I read at the MS Store site for this item, it's not quite up to that level of par. What say you?

    It looks like what they first shipped with Windows 10, a store app win8 type thing that seems very restricted compared to the nice old simple RDC/RDP.

    Hello Ed,

    I agree. RDC/RDP is much better than this app for now.

    TBH though, it may be ok on a single screen setup, but not worth changing for.

    Kind of sounds like the XBOX ONE Smart Glass App? Only for PC to PC connection.
