Wow. Just what I was looking for.

Recently made the switch to a 12.9 2018 iPad Pro. Found this tool, paired it with a SwiftPoint GT and now have the best of both worlds. The tool works seamlessly and has been absolutely bullet proof. I can connect to my main Mac Mini and the Virtual Machine (Win 10) I run in parallels. I think my MacBook will now be relegated to my musical endeavours. Highly recommended. The price is spot on. Well done.

All remote devs need this

I constantly switch work spaces. Whether I am at home, work, bus, or tech van, Jump Desktop has been a life saver. Easy install and easy to connect. It really can’t get any easier to connect.
