Great, Better than Screens
I was trying to find a VNC / RDP client to connect to my mac remotely. I was a sucker and bought both JumpDesktop and the Screens app. Don't do that, just buy JumpDesktop, its better...stop, just buy it, screens may look good but its not good under the hood.
In short: JumpDesktop does a great job of connecting, and making the connection fast with different screen quality options for connecting to macs. RDP is pretty standard and they make it work well.
JumpDesktop, while lacking in 'pretty' user interfaces, executes really well when connecting to mac remotely via VNC connections. The Grayscale option is awesome, especially if you have your own vpn setup at home (upload speeds are miserable for residential internet). And if you are going to use cellular data you can save a lot if you use the black and white screen quality, it also make the remote desktop almost unreadable, it seams to pick white or black so if you have colored text in a terminal if it is closer to white it just goes white, easy to fix but annoying.
Ive also used the RDP connection with JumpDesktop and audio comes through, lag is as expected or none when connected vi vpn off site.
The Best RDP - Period
Been using it for years and just never got around to reviewing it. Sorry but it kills just about anything out there, easily worth the $$. With Macs I have no issues with wake on LAN, and am still accessing OSes back to 10.6. While in London this past September I was able to RDP with my iPhone back to a render/uploader computer for three weeks, allowing me to go out during the day with the production crew, but still monitor and update video production renders and uploads back at home base. After the first week of this workflow my boss came up to me and told me how glad he was that I was able to control this machine without having to go all of the way back to the studio, or worse yet, be stuck there all day just to monitor the computer. You can have Log Me In, I'll take Jump anyday.
Better and better
I've had this app for years. It started off playing second fiddle to iTeleport (I needed VNC more than RDP, and for VNC preferred the iTeleport experience back then). iTeleport faded, other apps came and went, and then SplashTop took over as my favorite remote desktop app: high quality video, easy connectivity, faster and easier to use.
Almost a year ago, when Jump released their physical mouse support and added better keyboard support (blowing away SplashTop's), I started using it more and more, especially for heavy typing.
Now, with Fluid, we are not limited just to 1990s style VNC screen compression: it is fast, adaptive and comparable to SplashTop, except with better keyboard and mouse support. I rarely open SplashTop.
One thing left to fix: Jump Desktop Connect does not seem to work well as a system daemon, distorting the screen if a desktop user is not already signed on (or so is my experience on a headless Mac Mini Server).
