Good, but needs to be better

3
Amazon workspaces itself is awesome. This client, however, needs some work. First off, you REALLY need to support ipad Pro’s. I have a nice big ipad pro, but massive black borders cut off a lot of my screen real estate. Horizon and citrix have fixed this. It’s time for Amazon to catch up. Mouse support could be better as well. Kind of hard to maneuver sometimes. Fix these issues and you have a 5 star review.

Needs iPad Pro support

3
Pretty reliable app and workspaces itself is a solid service. However it’s disappointing to have the app letterboxed on the iPad Pro, even though the device has been out for several months now. Hoping an update will fix this soon.

Saved credentials bugged, copy/paste doesn’t work

3
Generally an ok client with good streaming, but not nearly as good as Jump and other RDP clients. Two biggest current annoyances are: Saved credentials just does not work, you can enable the option, and it even prompt to save credentials, but you go to another app and come back, it has disconnected you and just prompts for credentials all over. Hopefully a bug that can be fixed. Copy/paste doesn’t work. I can’t manage to copy any text into a workspaces session. Once I thought I managed to copy text out to the ipad. Again, just too buggy for production use. The relative/touchpad mouse mode scaling makes the mouse fly around at a uselessly fast speed. That mode should be for fine control, but the opposite is true. Again see Jump for how to do mouse control well. The connection status display just says ‘calculating’ forever, how long does it take to calculate a ping time? About 54ms I figure :-) The radial dial has not option to disconnect _and_ hibernate/stop the instance.

No Support for iPad Pro

Needs to support the larger screen of their 11” iPad Pro

Needs to be optimized for iPad Pro larger screens

3
App display is not using full screen size on iPad Pro 11” Disappointing to have the bigger screen but give up an inch and a half because app is not optimized...

So Close!

With just a couple of extra features, this app could be perfect! Please include split-screen and support for the x1 mouse. Thank you!

So much potential

3
I downloaded this app and setup my amazon workspace for use when I’m not at home so I could take advantage of my development resource. The potential of this to be a powerful app is there, but there is only one drawback: the keyboard. With workspaces and the onscreen keyboard, screen doesn’t have the ability to scroll out of the way so you can see what you're inputting. If you have to type into a screen where the text is behind the keyboard, you can’t see what you’re typing. The app really needs a way to allow the screen to be dynamically scrollable when the keyboard is visible.

One key feature away from perfect

4
While ios does not offer mouse support, it does allow apps to implement mouse support. For example, Citrix app allows the use of the Citrix X1 mouse. So streamed desktops to the Citrix app enjoy mouse support. The same is true of JumpDesktop and the a partner mouse offering. While the virtual mouse implemented here is good, it isn’t so easy to do things like launch powershell with administrative privs. Please investigate enabling this support.

Need some improvements to offset mouse mode

3
With Microsoft RDP, you can double tap and then drag to simulate dragging. As it is, offset mouse mode seems to have zero support for dragging which makes it almost a none starter for me. Every time I have to drag, I find myself having to switch to direct mode, and even then direct mode is too chunky to accurately drag what I want.
