Its an ok start but its way below the desktop client. The app cannot stay connected in the background, it doesn't resume, it can't login as current user and many other options are missing. Its the only VMware product with the Modern UI, so at least VMWare provided a client, albeit not a very good one.

This app is absolutely terrible and does not allow you to connect to a desktop.

Release notes stated added resolution option for high DPI devices. No where in the app can you find this feature.

very reliable. Few problems. I use all the time.

The app times-out quickly, especially when minimized. Further, it freezes a lot while connected to remote desktop. Experience is very choppy.

Version 2.1 using the RDP protocol worked fine. Unfortunately having tested 3.1 and 3.2 via both RDP and PCoIP, nothing works. I get stuck at "The Connection Server is preparing the desktop/application...". UPDATE: The above was with a RT tablet. I've been working with VMware and they made me aware of this article: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2099979 which states that the Microsoft Store version of the View client needs at least 3 cores. As a test, I reduced my Windows 8.1 (full version) laptop to 2 cores and the regular version of the client worked fine, but the Microsoft Store version produced the same error as my RT tablet. Increased the core count back to all available and it works fine. So...why are three cores required for the MS Store version?????????

Would give 5 stars if there were a way to delete old servers no longer in use. I tried without success so ended up deleting then re-installing the app and only adding current servers.

Very pleased with the recent update to allow changing of screen resolution through the app. I will give 5 stars if the feature is added to connect USB devices.

The desktop's resolution could be configuared now. This is great with my high DPI devices !
