Microsoft released Remote Desktop apps for Android and iOS, but a Windows Phone solution is still nowhere to be seen. Not all is lost as the company confirmed with The Next Web today that a Windows Phone app is well on its way, but there's no word as to when we can expect to see it arrive on the store.

Microsoft released Remote Desktop apps for Android and iOS, but a Windows Phone solution is still nowhere to be seen. Not all is lost as the company confirmed with The Next Web today that a Windows Phone app is well on its way, but there's no word as to when we can expect to see it arrive on the store.

Here's what a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement:


"Remote desktop on phones is a relatively rare usage scenario. That said, we are working on a version of the app for Windows Phone. We’ll be able to share timeframe at a later point in time."

While it still doesn't make up for the fact Windows Phone is coming second, it's a relatively true statement. Mobile handsets aren't the most ideal solution for remote desktop access due to smaller screens. Still, it would be great to have the client available for those moments when you only require quick access.

We'll have to wait until Microsoft is ready to launch Remote Desktop on Windows Phone, but at least it's on the way. For now, try out alternatives like TeamViewer.

Not sure why, this has been done by many companies for some time, does the world not just use windows, red hat or Ubuntu through their mobile device already? RDP has been inherent in OS since Windows XP.. . I use Hubesk, hubdesk.com. I have a full Ubuntu operating suite and 100's of free license programs more secure than Microsoft already. The processor hudesk utilizes in the cloud allows me to open word documents, excel and power point on my mobile devices faster than I can on my home PC and PowerBook.. They charge 8$ a month and can use Microsoft products but that would have a monthly licensing cost over $30 for what I find to be an inferior, glitchy less secure product. Think Erricom has an RDP product line called blaze that can link to cloud machines and home desktops too.. Really email HubDesk.com Its quite a machine for the price. Works through Chrome OS too.. Just about any OS
