This update fixes a compatibility problem when connecting to Linux machines. Here's what was new in the previous update:
Added support for iCloud keychain syncing. If iCloud keychain is enabled, Jump will sync your computer passwords and ssh keys across your Macs and iOS devices. Requires Jump Desktop 9.0 for iOS keychain syncing, which will be available very soon.
We've also added more computer icons to choose from: Right click your computer in Jump, click Edit and click the computer icon to choose.
We've also fixed some issues with RDP where moving the mouse pointer had problems after a recent Windows update.
Ratings and Reviews
THE remote desktop app
I’ve used this app for at least five years and it has has honestly performed flawlessly. It connects to our remote server very quickly, no lag time on the keystrokes… it does exactly what you need it to do. I run it on my Mac, my ipad and my iphone. There has been many a road trip where I had to access my desktop on my phone for an emergency file and it does the trick. Oh, and here’s a protip: Your boss is on vacation. You cut out early for the day. If you respond to an email from your boss, he or she can totally tell when your email is coming from your iPhone; it is formatted differently than a regular email originated from Outlook. If you get that email from your boss, you log onto to the Jump app, go onto your Outlook and it’s as if you sent it from your very own desk. You think this would be common knowledge, but I can’t tell you how many people i’ve seen send email from their phones in the middle of the day. Rookie mistake! But, i digress… GREAT APP!!!
Just writing a review as I searched for a while to find a good RDP for my Mac. I tried all the free (and almost free) apps with limited success. I finally decided you get what you pay for and it worked. It connects every time, no matter where I am. No lags in keystrokes or freezing or hanging up unless the public network connection I’m on is very slow. When that happens I just connect via Personal Hotspot and its full speed ahead again. I also like that the app automatically sizes itself to the screen it’s on so it’s full screen when I’m on the road or in my home office with a larger monitor. I work at home and on the road and our company moved to a new business suite that runs in an RDP environment and is used for almost everything I do. I need an RDP progam that will stay up and on all day, not just something I jump in and out of occaisionally and this one works perfectly.
Easy to Use and Works
Although I personally had a hard time paying for something I could get for free from Microsoft, Remote Desktop, I’ve been a Jump user since 2014. Jump is extremely easy to use and works well. MS RD just never worked as smoothly or reliably. Note, this may have changed over the years, but I have no reason to go back and check.
I routinely use Jump to connect to Windows and Macs around the world, and more often than not the performace feels as if the computer is right next door. Little things such as printing, etc. just always seemed to work better in Jump than they did in MS RD. The iPad and iPhone versions of the software work just as well although admittedly I use them considerably less than I do the desktop software, but the are great for logging in and checking the status of certain services / projects.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
