  2. Wake On LAN option (wake and connect)

    Wake On LAN feature for RDP hosts. In more detail: User can set WOL parameters and optional wait time (offset in seconds) to enable automated "Wake and connect". Maybe also implement manual wake on lan for RDP hosts as additional feature.

  4. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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).

  13. 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…

  14. Add Full Screen / Immersive Mode

    For devices with on-screen buttons, it would be nice to have an option to hide them the way apps like Play Books do, so as to make full use of the screen real estate on the device. See the below URL for documentation on using the API for this:

  17. 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.

  19. 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

  20. Hide connection bar

    Other remote clients have the option to hide the connection barat the too. (Just like the desktop client) I like to use rdp with wireless ac to view video on flash sites and its annoying that I can't get rid of the bar at the top. Every thing else is great. I love how convenient it is go use remote gateways with this app.
