Version 1.2.0 Released


We are proud to release version 1.2.0.  This is a Client and a Server update.  Please download the new server.

Server Changes
  • Added support for new 1.2.0 client features
  • Added image quality setting, this changes the quality of the image sent to the handset
Client Changes
New Features
  • Added UI scale to options menu which allows for choosing 1 of 10 different UI scales to better fit the variety of screen sizes available
  • Added the "special key" menu with a variety of new options.  This menu can be toggled via the glowing square in the main buttons menu
  • Control key modifier, this modifier affects left and right click operations.  The modifier is automatically toggled off after a click is sent
  • Double left click button, it sends a double left click
  • Scroll Up/Down buttons, these scroll your mousewheel up or down on whatever window the cursor is on (you don't need to left click first before scrolling, just tap and hit scroll!)
  • Screenshot toggle, when enabled, screenshots will be captured for every command sent to the server.  When disabled, screenshots are not captured or sent back to the client after a request acknowledgement from the server
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a zooming bug that resulted in the image becoming inverted and flying off the screen in protest of SOPA

Version 1.1.0 released

We are proud to release version 1.1.0.  This is a Client and a Server update.  Please download the new server.

Server Changes

  • New! Added support for hotkey functionality
  • New! Changed name of server, this affects your desktop shortcut!
Client Changes
  • New! Added ability to define 5 hotkeys in the user interface.  Each hotkey can map to a unique keyboard button, currently only the characters a-z and 0-9 (letters and numbers) are allowed.
  • New! Added ability to toggle between fixed screen orientations for devices whose accelerometer does not behave correctly
  • New! The refresh button now moves the mouse cursor to the selected location but does not send a mouse click.  This is great for getting tooltips.
  • Bugfix! Resolved an issue where the image aspect ratio would get set incorrectly
Name Change
To be as proactive as possible and maintain good standing with the law, we have changed the name of both the server and client to Companion Remote Desktop.

For the server, this means that you should uninstall the old version and remove the shortcut from your desktop.  Please be certain that you are running version 1.1.0 going forward!

Server Bugfix 1.0.1

We have just released a bugfix for the Companion Remote Desktop Server, you will find the new server on our download page.


Version 1.0.1

  • Fixed a bug that caused the server to stop responding after ~150 requests.  This was due to a console buffer not getting emptied and eventually stalling the server.  This resulted in the client application counting from 20 to zero and then saying it could not access the server.
We do apologize for taking so long to catch this.
