      • List connections

        I have a lot of connections. When I turn off preview mode, if like to see a simple list of connections as before. The "empty" tiles take up to much space.

                    • Automatically establish VPN connection when I connecting to the certain remote desktop

                      Now I have to set up VPN in Android settings every time before using this RD app, this claims too many actions from user each time.

                        • Add an alternate <PC name> to avoid creating 2 connections for 1 PC (1 for remote and 1 for local access)

                          Add an alternate <PC name> to avoid creating 2 connections for 1 PC (1 for remote and 1 for local access)

                          When I'm at home and I want to connect to my home PC, the <PC name> field is my private IP address. On the other hand, when I'm at work and I want to access my home PC, I have to use my home public IP address as <PC name>. I can specify only one <PC name> address on your app, so I need to create 2 connections for the same computer. You should add 2 <PC name> fields…

                          • Add Groups

                            The groups could be used to organize multiple connections. If you have more than 10 connections configured, it's a bit difficult to locate one.
                            Also, you could use the groups to assign a setting to the whole group (e.g. user or TS-Gateway, connect to all the group members).

                                • 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 Android client.

                                  • Expand redirect local storage to external sdcard / usb stick on android.

                                    As said, i am only able to see the android internal storage. Expanding it to anything available, usb, external sdcard, bluetooth ... would be great.

                                      Why can't we backup the RDP connections so that we can restore if the device is reset or changed?

                                      • Ability to show special keys without keyboard

                                        Bring back the ability to display the special keys such as shift, alt, etc. Without showing the whole keyboard (like the production version). Always showing the keyboard makes it very difficult to use these keys with the mouse (shift click, etc.)

                                        Thanks,
                                        Rich
