            • AirPlay support for iOS.

              AirPlay capable devices are becoming more and more common in corporate environments. Supporting AirPlay on iOS would allow Remote Desktop would allow broadcast of the Remote Desktop View to AirPlay-enabled screens and devices.

                • Hide or Unpin the top status bar

                  The top status bar gets in the way of most applications. There must be a way of unpinning this. Maybe a slide down gesture to bring back and re-pin.

                      • VPN support

                        Add VPN support inside the app. For example, we can predefine VPN to use on RDC connection. When started, app will automatically start VPN before connecting, on termination will automatically turn off VPN

                        • Fix keyboard issue when using VirtualBox, Pidgin, and other VM software

                          Previous version of RDP didn't have issue. In the current version, one is not able to type anything inside Pidgin text box or anything inside VirtualBox guest machine.

                              i use bluetooth keyboard on the iPad for heavy lifting, and would be much easier if i didn't have to open the onscreen keyboard for command keys to work

                              • "hold-zoom" and other mouse gestures/features from the mouse handling of Itap-RDP

                                When this app was introduced, and the itap-rdp app was discontinued, we lost 2 features.
                                1. retina-resolution (already suggested in this forum)
                                2. mouse handling with gestures.

                                The mouse features of itap-rdp was excellent for retina resolution, with the built-in "hold-to-zoom-preview" , and 3 finger swipe to enable keyboard/disconnect etc.

                                Please include the "itap-mouse" into this app.

                                    • Built-in Bluetooth mouse support

                                      Other RDP software such as Jump Desktop have working Bluetooth mouse support. IOS supports the device pairing, and they've figured out how to access mouse input data - works beautifully for me on the iPad and iPhone with an Apple mouse - so it _is_ possible!

                                      • Support RD Gateway Pluggable Authentication and Authorization (PAA)

                                        Windows RDP client (8.1) can authenticate against RD Gateway by using PAA cookie from "gatewayaccesstoken" RDP file property (https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsdesktop/Remote-Desktop-Gateway-517d6273).
                                        It would be nice to have PAA and "gatewayaccesstoken" property supported in iOS client.
