App Reviews

  • Can’t connect without warning

    By Spotticus63
    There is no option to ignore the Security Certificate Warning in the preferences (this was in option in much older versions). So everytime I log into my work computer I have to bypass this warning. Very bothersome. Please add that feature back to allow connection without the security certificate warning.
  • Does not load

    By lrvquilter
    I used this for two years and now after the most recent update, it does not work on my mac!!
  • hi

  • Crashes sometimes but okay

    By Grimmgreen
    Not sure why there are two of these apps in the App Store. I prefer this one since the other only lets you connect to one at a time. It works okay but it does crash occasionally (when you aren’t connected to any machines but have the app open) and you have to force quit. Either this needs an update to fix it or the other one needs to allow for multiple connections.
  • Good enough for daily use

    By NewAgeTradition
    I’m using the MsRD8 App on a daily base. A new version has been released as a different app which allows you to migrate all your connections. The old one, this one still works just fine.
  • I love the lack of documentation

    By PhillipJ.Fry
    I thought I was going to have an easy tie using this software, and wasn’t looking forward to no challenge. Luckily, there’s no documentation, and the only help offered online is out of date and factually wrong a out the options you’re given. I’ll be working on this for a while! Hooray! A challenge!
  • Keeps Me From Lugging My Work Laptop Home

    By Jay Jennings
    I work for a large municipality IT department and when it’s my turn to be “on call” I no longer have to lug my (stinking) Windows laptop home with me because this cool tool allows me to remote in to my work computer (and other servers in the Muni) from my MacBook Pro. I’ve had no problems with the app, it just works the way it’s supposed to.
  • Works great, except won’t quit correctly

    By FussyZeus
    Whenever I try to log out at the end of the day, this app CONSTANTLY hangs! Have to fiddle with it’s icon and Force Quit every time to get it to close all RDP windows and the connection Window. Really obnoxious issue with an otherwise excellent app.
  • High DPI & Cursor rendering

    By Capt. of Starship Earth
    I have issues with this app working well on retina devices. When you do get the display aspects addressed there are rendering issues that effect the cursor. It doesn't make the app unusable just annoying to look at.
  • Use to work, now it does not

    By __Disappointed__
    Installed, worked fine. Cleaned my machine with fresh OSX install. Now Miscrosoft Remote Desktop shows “installed” in App store, and its not. So can’t use it anymore as I can’t download it.
