Yeah touch interface!!

This has been under development for two years? Is that correct?


Splashtop remote software is far ahead of you on this.Their iOS app acts like a touch screen app. A tap is the same as a click, a long tap is the same as a right-click, and they have other gestures. There's no dragging a mouse around an iPad screen.


Even better, I can switch seamlessly between mouse and keyboard options. I can click a link that opens a dialog box, for example, and immediately begin typing without having to tap an icon to activate the keyboard.


And even better than that, they have implemented a Windows key, so that I can do things like Win+R to open the run dialog box on a remote computer. I think they even let me create my own, custom shortcuts - haven't fully explored that yet., etc.



The latest release of the iOS app has something similar with "Trackpad Mode". This doc should give you an idea of how to use it: https://docs.connectwise.com/ConnectWise_Control_Documentation/Mobile_apps/iOS/Control_a_remote_machine_from_an_iOS_device . Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improvements. Thank you. 

Sorry Max, track mode does not seem similar - I still have to drag a mouse around on the screen. Splashtop's app does not require using a mouse at all. Example - if there's a list of computers on a remote screen and I need to select one on the list, all I do is tap that computer's row. Or, if I'm connected a to a remote computer and need to Run Word from the computer's desktop, all I have to do is double tap the Word icon on the remote computer desktop with my finger or stylus. With your implementation, I have to drag a virtual or track pad mouse to the icon and then implement you double tap methodology. it's the mouse dragging that's the problem.
