Microsoft up until now had not taken the decisive step. But now it confirms to make a remote desktop app for a Windows phone. This will finally fulfill the wishes of many fans of Bill Gates’ company.
Many people had adopted the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to hook up with Windows Personal Computers and servers to boot. But what had not happened until now was the manufacture of an indigenous application. While Microsoft had lent its RDP facilities to both Apple App Store and Google Play Store, it had no Windows App Store of its own.
An announcement made previously says that Windows, Windows RT, iOS, OS X and Android will support the RDP function. But no such news was relayed regarding Windows Phone. And Microsoft spokespersons had refused to comment any further regarding this gap in the system.
The fact is that Microsoft’s app works quite well on both Android and iPhone. Then the legitimate question is why Windows Phone is being sidelined so ruthlessly. However, recent speculation says that Microsoft is indeed working on just such a thing. But, it is not giving any date when the new app will be released. And this is cause for worry.
Everyone is disappointed due to Microsoft keeping mum regarding the time frame. What the statement made by Microsoft reeked of was reluctance. It was taking the action under public pressure and not of its own will. Microsoft’s eagerness was lukewarm and it showed lack of enthusiasm regarding the move.
