  • Surprisingly Robust App!

    By Soviet Enigma
    So, I ran out the office one day and I forgot to file a document electronically. When I got home, I didn’t feel like going back to the office, so I downloaded this app. To be honest, I thought I was getting fleeced for almost $15. However, the intuitive interface, comprehensive keyboard functions and instructional video made my task almost as easy as if I was at the office (but saved me a drive back to the office). I did what I needed to do reclined on my couch in comfy slippers. The app is worth every penny.
  • Very nice

    Love Jump Desktop. Small thing: wish you could enable windows shortcuts by default.
  • Lifesaving

    By Jbucklights
    I use this to remote in to almost a dozen computers, and it’s the smoothest I’ve used! Love it!
  • Simply the best...

    By Hguydave
    I’ve been using this app for years and have no complaints. SSH tunneling with key pair support is a god send and eliminates the need for battery-killing VPN. I only wish it had an SSH client as well.
  • For RDP just use the free Microsoft app its better

    The only thing that I wanted to try on this app was the mouse support. We all know that apple blocks bluetooth mice so they dont hurt Mac laptop sales. This app has an option for a mouse the only problem is that the mouse if not a standard mouse. Its very pricey. So back to MS RDP or better-yet my Chromebook
  • Buggy.

    Updated iOS & now it only connects intermittently. Using iPhone 7 on T-Mobile's LTE network.
  • Jump

    By Fire Ghost Dancer
    As a software engineer I am always sensitive to the quality of software that I use that has been written by others. Jump impresses me as being one of the best-designed and best-functioning software products that I have begun using in many years. The design of its ability to create on my local device an interface to my desktop on a remote host is well thought out and excellently rendered. I have used it several times a week for many years to extend my connect time with my software development projects on remote hosts no matter where I am, be it in a restaurant, a customer waiting room, or anywhere, and it has always worked flawlessly. An easy five stars.
  • Yes! It’s works.

    By *Schmad
    After using several other remote apps with less than impressive results. I decided to spend some good money on this app. Can’t say enough good about it so far. I was immediately pleased with ease of set up and connecting to my work computer. I connect to my Lenovo work computer using either my MAC, IPad Pro or my IPhone. All work smoothly and the resolution is so much better. I can actually see the remote screen clearly. It’s also fast connecting and stays connected with very little latency. I use this often so it’s well worth the money. Go for it!
  • Broken URL support

    By TimDawgz
    Used to like and use this program regularly but now the URL feature is broken! You can use URL's to launch RDP sessions but it doesn't honor the window size/desktop size so every session I launch is equal to the iPhone screen resolution meaning it's super tall and skinny and very difficult to use. The support documentation says this should be possible and it *was* possible until they broke it several versions ago. Now it's barely useful to me. I've been asked to contact support about this which I've done a few times now via their site, email and via twitter and was told they were able to replicate the problem and it would be fixed in the next revision. That was several revisions ago and still no fix. This has been going on for more than a year now. ☹️
  • Great app!

    Now I CAN leave my laptop behind! There is no hyperbole in this comment. I set up a VPN on my home network and complement it with Jump. I have installed it on my iPhone, iPad, Mac Mini, and MacBook Pro. I use it to connect to my desktop (Mac Mini) when I am away from home. I also use it from anywhere when I connect to my Ubuntu file, and network servers, and any one of my Ubuntu Virtual Box VMs. It is a proven winner for me using RDP, and VNC protocols. Since I have access to my home desktop, I can do my remote software development work without having to be stuck at home. The only downside is that I occasionally lose connections. This may be due to weak WiFi or when my OS goes to sleep, I don’t know. But it is super easy to re-establish the connection manually. I think I spent $10 in the App Store and is totally worth it. I compared with several RDP apps which are either free or for a fee (including the remote desktop from the software giant) before I committed to Jump. Jump is definitely the better value on all platforms.
