  • 5 : Simple yet functional RDP client. Been using this for a long time and I think it deserves my rating. A full 5 🌟 from me 👍🏻.
  • 3 : My favorite app until MS March2018 updates broke ability to connect. Still no revision available with the needed fix.
  • 1 : Failed to connect to test server so why bother
  • 5 : Amazing and free app. Does everything I need. Thank you!
  • 5 : great app, I no longer have resolution problem hah
  • 5 : Update your app with SDK 29 standards or remove from playstore.
  • 1 : Useless. Terrible GUI. Awful design.
  • 1 : Test server doesn't work
  • 5 : Awesome! I had it installed and working within minutes, to provide a remote desktop on my Android phone, from a Raspberry Pi in the next room. At the same time I'm using Remmina on an Ubuntu desktop machine for the same purpose.
  • 1 : Junk, I hate FAKE reviews. Does not work!
  • 5 : Best i found for connecting to ubuntu mate / xrdp
  • 5 : very good
  • 5 : Has the features needed and although a little clumsy at first, fairs no worse with the interface than others. Having tried 2X and Ericom, this is the only one with NLA and less than hideous support for high DPI displays (nVidia shield k1). Quite happy.
  • 1 : all I get a blank, black screen. Android RDC and xfreerdp work. Target server is a CentOS-6 xrdp installation. No problems with Windows-10-Pro but that is my one and only Windows machine. The other two dozen are a collection of a variety of releases of Fedora, CentOS, and Ubuntu

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
