Enjoy the freedom to work from anywhere. Jump Desktop is a remote desktop application that lets you securely connect to any computer in the world. Compatible with both RDP and VNC, Jump Desktop is secure, reliable and very easy to set up. Jump Desktop also supports our own, high performance, next generation remote desktop protocol called Fluid Remote Desktop.

Jump Desktop is very easy to configure; anyone can do it! Just visit: https://www.jumpdesktop.com on your PC or Mac, click the ‘Automatic Setup’ link and follow step-by-step instructions. You’ll be up and running in no time.
Jump encrypts the connection between computers to ensure privacy and security. Automatic connections are always encrypted by default. Supports NLA, TLS/SSL encryption for RDP. SSH Tunnelling and SSL/TLS encryption for VNC. Fluid Remote Desktop uses DTLS for secure connections.

* Powerful Collaboration Features:
Collaborative screen sharing lets many users connect to the same desktop. Each user gets their own mouse cursor and can click and point without fighting over the same cursor. Great for editing documents with coworkers, tweaking designs with remote team members, creating presentations together, and teaching Grandma how to clean out her email.

Ratings and Reviews
I actually just dont really use my iMac, it is way too slow. Its been ruined (intentionally of course) by all the OS X updates. So I have fast PC in my loft and use this to remotely access it from my iMAc. Best of both-worlds. All the style of my iMac in my kitchen, but I’m actually using a decent GPU equipped PC, with all its typical usablility.
Does exactly what it says and shares info aross iCloud!
Best RDP software I have used for the MAC beats the MS version hands down many times!
Plus like all good MAC apps it stores your servers in icloud so you have them on all devices.
Really cannot rate this highly enough “this is the software you’re looking for” :-)
Best Retina Remote Desktop App
Works really well. The only down side of this is when there is a lot of pictures on the remote desktop it really takes time to download/render them. I couldn't find a way to fix that hence 4 starts :)
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
