Not even worth trying... Glad that it pulled of the store.

I've been setting up a few Windows 8 Systems this holiday weekend only to discover the app has been pulled, it won't even come up in a search. No Information via any of Splashtops communications channels (website, twitter, support forums, etc..). Highly annoying considering that I did actually pay for this app.

Waiting forever for these guys to re release the metro app, and the desktop app doesn't work. Come on guys.

If the point of this application is to control a desktop PC via a Windows 8 tablet then the first try is a disappointing FAIL. Last I checked EVERY iPad and Android tablet is ARM based. Also the last time I checked my ARM based Surface RT is a Windows 8 device. My review could easily change by simply adding ARM support for the Win8 client.

I just tried to download it from MS app store and when i click on "install" it now tells me that its no longer available. I had it installed originally, so I know it works....was it removed?

Cannot connect to any machine, be it local or internet. Crashes occasionally when trying to do so, other times it just fails and asks you to put in the security code for the PC you're trying to connect to. The IOS clients work fine, and look to be honestly miles ahead in functionality.

Since it does not allow gmail integration, it really isn't that useful. Once they add gmail, I am sure it will take off.

But I'm not sure why they would release it at all in this state. The most basic of functionality is not there. Once they enable internet discovery I'm sure the app will be infinitely more usable. Update: Still no support for Splashtop account or internet discovery. What's the point?

It connects and I can see the desktop...Finally figured out how to minimize the keyboard. Lots of sound and screen corruption, but it is getting better.
