I demoed version 126.96.36.199 of Splashtop GamePad THD and it works flawlessly. It connects instantly and stays connected for hours at a time with no problems. After seeing how well the app worked, I borrowed a compatible device from a friend (I only own the Nexus 4 and Nvidia Shield), put in my Google account information, bought the app and side-loaded the APK of version 188.8.131.52.
I got this latest version of the app all set up, with the fix for xbox 360 controller and it does work great. The controls are awesome, it doesn't lag at all and games are perfectly playable. The only problem - It disconnects within 5 minutes of start up every time.
I can downgrade the app back to 184.108.40.206 and it instantly goes back to staying connected for hours at a time. Nothing else has changed. Any ideas on how I can fix this?
Are any of you Shield owners successfully using Splashtop Gamepad THD 220.127.116.11?
