definitely going downhill
I used to be able to utilize this app to give me portability to be able to do my job now. I can’t even use it with sound. I don’t have no sound coming through on my devices iPad or anything it makes no sense but yeah I can go on my MacBook like it’s nothing run that software and get sound coming through from the remote machine, you guys need to really get your priority and make a better so we can utilize it if I can give this app stars I would

Mouse and keyboard support is great, but still some issues.
In 1600x1200 display mode, when you minimize windows, a strip of the right side of the window remains. In 1600x1200 or 1024x768 the very right side of the screen will not let anything show up on it. If you click the date to bring up the calendar, the popover calendar appears, but the right edge of it is truncated off, so the week ends at Thursday, there is no Friday or Saturday. When you drag windows, often the right edge of them will disappear. Edit: it took an awfully long time, but it’s fixed! The whole screen is usable now. It’s gone from “I can make do in a pinch” to “yeah, it works. I can just do my work without any fuss”

Does not connect most of the time and arrow keys do not work
Using 12.9 ipad pro with a magic keyboard. This does not connect half the time (or very slow to connect) compared to my PC. When it connects, the arrow keys do not work, nor does Ctrl+Alt+Delete and there is no way to map keys to the magic keyboard for convenience. It is not useful to have this app because it does not meet basic needs.

Does not work at all
I use this app on a Mac and Windows, where it (barely) works. On the iPad, it does not even connect, at all, ever. Broken! Remove!

Almost useful.
This is so close to a useful application. There seems to be an issue with the Magic Keyboard and the app understanding arrow keys input. Without this, it's pretty hard to do anything that this app is designed for... development and administration work. If the arrow keys worked, I could do 90% of my day job. Without that support, I can do 0%.

Navigational Keys DO NOT WORK
THE ARROW KEYS DO NOT WORK !!! You are 99% the way there, finish the last 1% so we can actually use the client. People NEED arrow keys. Period. You can clearly see comments with the SAME complaint. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

Display issues
Ugh!!!! STILL broken. Please fix the display issues on iPad 11” Pro. If I select 1600 x 1200 on an iPad Pro 11, there’s a 1-2” strip on the right side of the screen that doesn’t display anything but the wallpaper. If you drag something over there or maximize a window, anything that is in that strip is missing. Still there, because you can click on where you ‘think’ things are and they are there, you just can’t see them. Also, the double tap and drag would be useful as well. Lastly, it would be nice if the sound only paused other sounds already playing and then resumed them. In other words, if you have music playin the background, it stops totally when using your desktop. Stinks. But the display issue prevents me from using this. Click on “App Support” and a web page says Access Denied.

Lacking modern features of the recent OS. Keyboards, mice, external displays, etc.
This app has the capacity to be a really great application, but is lagging on support of various features of the OS making it more or less impossible to use for any meaningful developer work. For example, when using Workspace from macOS, it properly redirects the cmd key to be the control key on the Windows 10 workspace. Mouse support came in iPadOS 13.4 which I think should be implemented. This would be the perfect application where these new API features could be implemented. Things like right clicking on my Bluetooth mouse does not right click in the Workspace app. Apple also has support for external displays. This app could make use of the app as a secondary display which would be fine for someone that had a Bluetooth mouse paired to the device.

Desperately needs better keyboard support
I use this app a lot on the iPad, for both personal and business use. Connections are very solid, and the interface is responsive. I find mouse support to be very good with my propoint. What is terrible is keyboard support. Control and Alt are not recognized on iPad keyboards with the exception of ctrl+c, ctrl+v, ctrl+x. Even better would be support for the command key to remap to the ctrl key as on the Mac client. Either way, the current solution is so limiting for power users, no app-switching, no easy access to app shortcuts, etc. I find myself logging into my Mac remotely and then using the Mac client just to use keyboard shortcuts, but that slows things down significantly. Please improve keyboard support.

Saved credentials bugged, copy/paste doesn’t work
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.

Very Useful however…
I can’t get the arrow keys to function and this is causing me to not use it more. I do a lot of Excel work on my iPad connected to a client with AWS Workspaces. The Magic Keyboard creates a very satisfactory experience EXC EPT the arrow keys won’t map/work. This causes me to go back to my MacBook if I am going to need arrow keys. So strange that an otherwise very intuitive piece of engineering would bomb out on arrow keys. Like hitting a home run and forgetting to tag all the bases.

One key feature away from perfect
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.

Solid Showing
Little inconsistencies stop this from being a 5 Star review. Bluetooth keyboard works seamlessly, as expected. Typical iOS pinch to zoom work as expected as well. Obviously there is no mouse support, perhaps Apple Pencil support is on the way? For some reason, when I have video overlay playing the Bluetooth audio cuts out when I switch to the WorkSpaces client, weird!

Could be so much better
The iPad version could be so much better - look at Jump Desktop - but no one seems to be paying attention. Others have reported the broken display at 1600x1200. I really want to like this app, but the developer doesn’t seem to care, which is a bummer because a solid iPad client could go great with the iPad Pros….

Need some improvements to offset mouse mode
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.

Almost Perfect
By far the smoothest way to connect to an AWS workspace via iPad, with just a few quirks. As is, this allows my iPad to replace my laptop for work. Mouse support is pretty remarkably good! Scrolling etc works now w/the Magic Keyboard case. Most keyboard commands work, though some are a little wonky. A killer feature I’d love to see is proper management of second displays. Currently you /can/ connect a USB-C display and mirror the iPad for a bigger screen while working, but it would be even better if it could run full resolution on both screens as separate displays!

Instant crash, leisurely fix
When iOS 14.5 was publicly released, this app wasn’t ready. It would crash immediately after launching. It took a week for a fix to come. We still had to pay our subscription fees even though we were dead in the water. Also, when it does work, it constantly listens to my microphone.

Repeating key presses
When I use Firefox, I start typing into the url bar and my last key keeps repeating indefinitely making workspaces on the iPad virtually useless for me. I cannot type in usernames/passwords or anything useful. Just clicking around copy and pasting. Same thing happens when I type in the command line.

Great App, poor integration with external keyboards, no mouse
This iPad app clearly is on its way somewhere, but in its current state cannot be used for developers without better integration with external iPad keyboards. Without any form of mouse support it is hard also to do basic tasks.

Needs Mouse/Trackpad and Keyboard Support
I got this app for use with the iPad Magic Keyboard, hoping to fully replace my laptop for general usage, but the complete lack of mouse/trackpad support, as well as poor keyboard support, render this app far less useful than it really should be. Please add support for these features and make AWS for iPad all it could be!

Why No Up/Down/Sideways Movement?
This version of AWS fails to allow the iPad’s external keyboard to work with the up/down/left/right arrows. So, when you’re inside your AWS workspace, there’s very limited ability to maneuver, e.g., within a Word document, effectively rendering the keyboard largely useless.

Needs Bluetooth Mouse Support to be a true replacement for laptop
Both Citrix Receiver and Jump Desktop have Bluetooth mouse support (X1 mouse or Jump's own mouse). Without it, this limits the iPad's ability to be a true laptop replacement.
