User Reviews for Jump Desktop (RDP, VNC, Fluid)

iPad Pro + Magic Keyboard + Jump Desktop

The iPad Pro + Magic Keyboard + Jump Desktop is the holy grail.The iPad can do a lot of things, but sometimes there’s something I can only do well on my MacBook, such as programming. Now I can confidently leave my MacBook connected at home and just take my iPad Pro with me and not feel limited.The Magic Keyboard’s trackpad works like a native mouse!Although iPad swipe gestures take precedence over native swipe gestures, they have on-screen buttons for exposé, desktop switching, etc. One major downside preventing a 5-star rating is connecting to your mac via jump desktop will expose your mac’s screen to anyone who is in the same room as your mac. There is no indicator in-app that your mac’s screen is being exposed to the world. Using the Mac’s user account switcher there is a way to make the Mac go to the lock screen while keeping jump desktop connected via the iPad, but you have to remember to do this every time you connect. When you switch the Mac to the lock screen there is no indicator on the iPad that the Mac’s screen is locked while you’re using the Mac remotely — you just have to know it is.

Promised features nonexistent & locks features behind subscription

I tried this app due to it being recommended online. They also say that you can connect with full retina resolution. Not the case. You can only utilize retina from iPad>Mac by using a VNC connection, which performs horribly, and you can do this for free anyway without Jump. Fluid connections do not support Retina. They hide this well on their website, but promised years ago that they were working on it. What they have actually accomplished is locking more features (like manual Fluid connections) behind a subscription! Yay! More subscriptions for an app you’ve already paid for in the first place! The reason I bought Jump to begin with was that they didn’t have a subscription model, but it seems every developer nowadays wants a piece of the pie. BTW, Anydesk (free) does retina resolutions for Mac currently. Microsoft’s free Remote Desktop accomplishes this for Windows. I asked Jump about getting retina resolutions on Fluid, and they did not respond. And now they want more money for manual cloudless Fluid connections. Nah, man.

Please please please add sound!

This is one of the coolest apps I’ve seen in a looooong time!However the fact that I can’t stream any sound from my Mac makes it very limited. With the mouse support coming in iOS 13 and with sound added, this is is definitely the best setup where I can just use my iPhone or iPad as a remote computer. The latency was very good! I was shocked at how well it worked with minimal lag. I could honestly barely see any lag between the real computer when I moved my mouse and when the app screen mouse moved. The only negative is the lack of sound that it doesn’t support yet. Please add this and you have yourself a winner!Also, I am not sure if there is a way to lock my computer when I am out and about so I can log into the app but not have my activity being viewed on my computer screen when I am gone. I didn’t know if this is possible.

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.

This is the one you’re looking for

After getting my iPad I was disheartened to learn that sidecar wasn’t as fully featured as I hoped. While the picture was fantastic, it didn’t support an external mouse or the trackpad on the magic keyboard. So I started searching for remote desktop applications that would fit the bill of allowing me to access my desktop across the house with minimal effort. To my horror, I realized that almost none of them provided an easy way to resize my screen to fit the iPad resolution, further, when connected to an external monitor, they maintained the iPad 4:3 aspect ratio, which made for an unpleasant experience. Much to my surprise, this app not only automatically resizes the screen to the iPad resolution (when using their protocol and app), but it ALSO changes the video out resolution to fit whatever monitor you hook it up to. Absolutely incredible work! Well worth the money.

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.

This one deserves the 1st place among the RDP apps.

I fell in love with this app right after using it less than ten minutes. I found every issues that I had when I was using RD Client that drove me crazy have been solved. People say RD Client became great especially after having its recent major update (version 10). And it seems they consider it solid just because MS made it. But, for me, great is not enough and MS is not almighty. In my case, the alphabet and number keys were not be able to put to the X11 apps in WSL2. Also, Ctrl + Space combination which performs the language switch in iPadOS was also hooked even in the RDP sessions, which made me depressed since that key combination was meant to do a crucial role in my dev app.

Best one out there

I’ve used almost every remote desktop tool for iOS out there and this one is the best, no contest. Multiple ways to connect to hosts, plenty of control customization, not enough latency to matter, audio streaming to the connected device, resizes resolution to match connected device (my favorite feature), saves multiple connections, easy setup, automatic reconnect when multitasking, gesture navigation, and best of all you can get it all for a ONE TIME FEE and as of the time of writing this review that fee is cut in half. Get it while you can, but even if you don’t spring on the half off, it’s still worth the full price and I would pay it again in a heartbeat.

I had given up on anything you can buy and not pay subscription monthly. I ended up getting this for 50% off which was a steal. I haven’t been using it long but so far it works great! It's fast, fluid is a great description because it is just that. I have not even used all of the features, there are many. It works on all platforms and across platforms. I ❤️ this app! It’s not often you come across a perfect app, this one is perfect. The devs already pushed out an update and I’ve not owned it a week. Great job Devs! I’ll be keeping my eyes open for any other apps you might release. This is the best app of its kind, truly it is. I haven’t even used it with my Magic Mouse or iPad yet! Oh and did I mention it does sound as well! But it, it’s work 3 times they priced it at, much more than what I paid.

Literally The Best Remote Desktop/Connection Out There By FAR

Been using Jump now for a few years and ever since the very first day I’ve loved it and never regretted purchasing for my iPhone. I’ve tried so many other different apps and software and jump is literally endless miles ahead of so very many others. I even use it when I want to connect with my shadow cloud desktop from my iPhone instead of using the shadow application alone simply being that it lacks a plethora of user friendly features and versatility that jump does, like flawless two finger zooming and scrolling, mouse pointer and touch location and accuracy and so many more. Cannot recommended Jump Desktop any higher, they have by far exceeded my expectations for years now and continue to do so flawlessly. Cheers!
