Absolutely the best app!!!
This has become my most used App ever.
Jump has totally changed my workflow, and ability to work remotely, anywhere, anytime. I can seriously do anything I'd do in the office, from my iPad, and it doesn't feel like a compromise. (My boss thinks I'm a genius!!!)
I use a laptop and a desktop in my office, with most of my heavy lifting done on the desktop, and I use Remote Desktop to access the desktop from the laptop (even when in the office, so I can control both machines simultaneously from the same keyboard, mouse and monitor), so all my work and apps reside on the desktop with files on the corporate server.
I can access the desktop (or the laptop) from my iPad (or iPhone at a pinch) using Jump from anywhere in the office (meeting rooms, colleagues office, coffee shop), or from home or when traveling, so that I am working on secured files with native apps, and my work is always there when I log on or off. (I recently had to do an urgent job using a large Access database and Excel, and I was able to do it sitting in the bleachers at my son's baseball game over a 3G connection!)
I can also access my Mac at home from any location, running Mac or Windows Apps (in Parallels) and access all my personal stuff.
It works fine accessing the corporate stuff over the vpn connection, and is rock solid.
My number one recommendation if you want to use Jump really effectively, is add an external keyboard to your iPad, it makes the world of difference!
If I could, I would give this app ten stars, and not just five. The app was very simple to install on my Mac’s, all of them, and worked from the moment that I began using it. It was also easy to switch between Mac’s for control of each one simply by logging off one and logging into the next, which took only seconds. I really wanted this app for accessing Scrivener, which I use heavily, and it was just as if I was sitting in front of my Mac desktop, but on my iPad. This adds extreme portability, which was my goal she I don’t want to take one of the Mac notebook computers along for just a short time.
Definitely worth every penny of the purchase price (I was somewhat skeptical at first until I had downloaded it and began using the app). I look forward to even more updates and upgrades in the software as time goes by and improvements continue to be made.
Update: I was also able to access my wife’s notebook computer when she has issues and I’m not there to assist her. I can take over the desktop on her notebook computer and guide her through the issue until it’s resolved and explained. This is a BIG plus for me.
Good app but needs more
Really seems to be the best RDP client that I've used so far and I've used about 20 different apps trying to find the one I would settle upon. I'm still on the fence if Jump is the final do all, end all, be all RDP app for me. I also really like RoyalTS having used their desktop product for several years which is has great support and has far better prices.
I really like Jump but it's missing key features especially considering the premium price (which is a little too "premium" if you ask me).
* Needs cloud sync or cloud backup/restore option to keep the connections on all of my IOS devices in sync without requiring me to email a config file everytime I make a change.
* Jump needs to include an option to include passwords when exporting a config file.
* Needs to include the password when duplicating connections.
As I said, I'm still on the fence on what RDP app I'll ultimately use for good. I think RoyalTS has better features but I don't like that it uses other RDP clients to connect while Jump has the best RDP client but not as many features. Only time will tell which one ends up being the best...
