  • Amazing

    By jonbrackett
    I bounced around a few of these apps until I found these guys and I’m impressed. The mouse was expensive but a total game changer. Turns my iPad into a real computer when I need it to. Absolutely amazing. 6 stars. Honestly, I would have paid a lot more for this. Totally worth it.
  • Best Remote Desktop App!!!!!!

    By realzz
    To the developers of this app.... You are the best! I was so amazed to see that all my keyboard shortcuts, including alt+tab work so well in RDP. Please add direct Windows Multitouch Support for Fluid.
  • Not overly impressed

    By Rogal1
    I can't figure out how to use this multiple monitors connecting to either my MBP or Windows 10 PC. I really isn't faster than RDP or VNC. I'm kind of disappointed.
  • could you refund to me??

    hi. i bought this app for screen mirror with pc for see some video. but sound dosen’t come out via ipad.
  • best remote access app.period.

    By ChrisFarker
    by far one of the best Apps for remote axis to your computer. There isn't much I would change about it. if I did have one feature wish list item it would be to allow customization of the shortcut buttons on the keyboard. (can't even remember the last time I used the "insert" key for example)
  • Clumsy at best

    Don’t waste your money
  • Great potential, lacking basic organization

    By Incisus
    This app is far beyond the capabilities of its competitors. It’s amazingly smooth and just works well. Why is there no ability to group connections? As an IT professional who uses this consistently to manage customer environments, having the ability to group connections would make this app an easy 5 stars. Please consider!
  • Excellent except I can’t figure how to get help

    By buckweb1956
    I can’t close email pop up notifications —I hit delete/or click on “x” to close the window. The circle turns blue but nothing happens. The only way I can close the window is by restarting my computer. It’s annoying. Other than this I would give this app a 5
  • Awesome!

  • 20 years with remote desktop says this is the best.

    I've worked with so many different RDP packages, protocols, apps on probably every operating system (host and guest) except for perhaps Android* and DOS. I am so impressed by the work these guys have done on Jump that I felt it necessary to write a review (something I very rarely do). I even used Jump years ago and put it aside because, At the time, there were other better solutions. But in the meantime they've been hard at work. The "fluid" desktop is amazing - surpassed only by Jump's own version of Microsoft's RDP access into Windows 10 desktop and/or Windows Server 2012 R2. (I also am running a similar set up but against Windows Server 2016, but for some reason it's just not quite as snappy. It might be a setting somewhere along the way or perhaps that particular hardware configuration. But the resolution transition down to my iPhone 6+ seems to be harder to work with and either things on the desktop are too small to see or it requires a lot of panning and zooming.) But for The first time ever, I can actually work productively in Visual Studio 2017 running on my desktop with two large monitors - remotely from my tiny iPhone 6+ screen. That is amazing! After recently returning to Jump after a hiatus of several years, it's now my "go to" RDP solution from any device to any device, desktop, operating system or environment, physical or virtual. Whatever the case may be, moving from the Windows desktop to a remote session from one of my IPhones or iPads is about as seamless a transition as I could ever have imagined. Trying to do that same thing except targeting one of my Mac desktops (and yes, from those same iPhones and iPads) is painful and frustrating. Even with Jump's iOS apps. Obviously Apple doesn't give the Jump developers much to work with since it's almost impossible to RDP even just between any two Apple devices or machines. (Check out ARD 3.8.x or whatever version they say they're so thrilled about out in Cupertino and you'll see what I mean.) Kudos to the folks behind Jump. Excellent work! * Why not android? I've always been both an Apple and a Microsoft power user for decades. But I'm finally about to drop Apple after 25 years when I buy my first Samsung Galaxy 8+ or 9+ sometime in the next few weeks. Apple has become as arrogant and out of touch with reality as Microsoft was in the 90s. The last two years has been one frustration with Apple after another, headache after headache. See you later, Apple. With all that brainpower out in Cupertino and all the self-genuflecting "genius" embodiments heaped upon all the Apple Stores in all the malls across the country and around the world, it turns out that a relatively tiny company called Jump not only ate their lunch, but did so without an army of messaging experts, PR disaster handlers, or product image inflators running around trying to convince everyone that their 23-month-old iPhone only appears to be suddenly useless because Apple so thoughtfully (and quietly) added a clever new.... "feature!" that throttled your battery phone's computing power back to just 25% of the power it had new. And just in time for its latest product launch too! (At a time it needed the goosed revenues more than ever.
