  • A great app, works perfectly; but with a mouse

    By Why??????!!
    The quality of streaming is very clear but it’s hard to use well without a proper mouse. These mice are from $60- $180. It’s not entirely “Jumps” fault though. Apple doesn’t allow all mice configurations to connect via Bluetooth. Another problem is audio. I still can’t figure out how to change the audio output. It wont play from my iPad, but from it will from the computer I’m streaming from. The help forum didn’t specify how I change this either.
  • Buy this app

    By DangerHog
    I never leave reviews. This app is so well designed and it is still getting better. With this app i can program from my ipad or iphone while i’m lying in bed watching a show with my wife.
  • Outstanding Product!

    By Spudboy2006
    I use it all the time to keep track of my computer at home.
  • It is good but no sound !!!

    By UltraGM
    I really want to like it !! But I need fluid support sound streaming as soon as possible!!! And speed is not really fast enough when I watch videos on higher resolution. And very bad support for physical mouse and keyboard. I want to use my Logitech Master S2 mouse to pairing. But nothing happens!!! I don’t want to use the mouse they offered. It is too expensive and small !!! And don’t know which keyboard they support.
  • 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.
  • Works fine for me

    By N3212T
    I leave my laptop on and just take my iPad when I travel. My only difficulty is duplicating some multi key functions like CTL-alt-e to clear a cell in Excel, or how to duplicate the ability to use a mouse to copy a paragraph or sentence in MS WORD, or a series of cells in Excel. It may and is just a training issue on my part. Bottom line it works great for me.

    I’m a physician working in a hospital and this app helps me take better care of patients in a secure, timely fashion. Thank you!
  • Direct mode breaks windows interaction

    By ABMann
    The switch to direct mode ion the most recent version breaks interaction with Windows applications. Where before, we could scroll Outlook calendar or a selected Outlook message, now it selects the time segment or the text, respectively. Now the only way to scroll is to tap and drag scroll bars. It also removes the ability to right click by tap and hold. Direct touch regresses too much for folks using this to access Windows workstations to be an improvement.
  • Apple TV app
