Remote Desktop App for Windows Phone Released with New Features

The Remote Desktop app for Windows Phone has been updated today, shedding the “preview” tag and added a few new features for users.  The update, version 8.1.8.13 for those keeping score at home, is what everyone should consider the first release of the app given it has been in preview (i.e. beta) for many, many months.  If you have the Remote Desktop app installed on your device, the update can be installed right over it so no need to uninstall/reinstall.

The update bring two primary new features to the app.  First it allows you to connect through a Remote Desktop Gateway.  Second is adds support for accessing remote resources which means you can access your desktop and apps from your desktop PC.  This assumes of course that your network admin allows it so your mileage may vary.

In addition to these new features there is the generic bug fixes and other improvements.  What exactly was improved is not clear in the Release Notes but we can assume general stability improvements.

The Remote Desktop app is a free app and available now in the Windows Phone Store.
