    It's October 27 and still no update. Windows 8 officially launched yesterday. I guess your notion of "very soon" is slightly different than mine.

    @Aaron, we're about to release 5.0 for Android soon. In the meantime anyone having trouble with Android just email support@jumpdesktop.com and please ask them to get you into the Android beta.

    Connecting to Windows Server 2012 works with the iPad version (5.0) but with the Android version (4.0.11) after you connect all you see it a blank black screen. I have panned around and tried lots of settings. Always blank on Android.

    Where is 5.0 for Android? Seems like no release for Android since April? Even if 5.0 is not ready (looking forward to the touch support), how about a patch release for 4.x to work with Windows 8/2012?

    Ironically the free Android RDP apps I have work well with Windows 8/2012, but my swish commercial app doesn't and no updates to fix it :-(

    Testing on Galaxy Nexus 4.1.1 and Nexus 7 4.1.2 and the problem is resolved. No black/blank screen when connecting to Windows Server 2012.

    Hi,

    There is a known issue with Windows 8 and RDP mode. We'll be releasing an update that addresses the issue very soon. In the meantime please try this Windows 8 workaround here: http://support.jumpdesktop.com/entries/21123243-windows-8-consumer-preview-install
