skip the msft app - You need an app for RDP remoting and you’re thinking Microsoft knows RDP. In theory they know Outlook too, but really they’ll just feed your nostalgia for random dialogues holding up your machine on shutdown, begging you to send in an error report and increment Microsoft’s counter labeled “our garbage is garbage." Their Remote Desktop app is no better, although I got an email asking me to sideload some alpha replacement for it. Yikes. Spend the money and save the time.

Version 7.0.7
Review by Festus Martingale

Shows popups, nag screen - Works as advertised but shows popup nag screens asking the user to rate the app. Cheesy gimmicks like that are expected in a free iPhone game but unacceptable in a $30 desktop app.

Review by JAA6921 from NC

Great - Excellent way to talk toremote Macs for me. I did some port juggling to redirect incoming connections to the right machine. Works well from other side of the globe Reliable and stable. Note to the developers - do not over complicate this product. It works well as it is. All too often simple problem solvers like this are morphed into highly complex apps that most people do not need. Thanks

Version 7.0.7
Review by bradhs

If you RDP a lot this is worth it - If you’re RDP’ing all the time then this is the app for you. A lot of flexibiitly, very fast, printing and mapped drives just work, can’t ask for anything more. Minor bug: Let’s say you were disconnected from Shimo VPN (for example whne laptop wakes up from sleep). Also, you were connected to a remote RDP server over the VPN connection. Shimo VPN reconnects after waking up. Jump will sith on “Reconnecting” for an excessive amount of time instead of detecting that a new interface is up. It should immediately retry once it detects the new int is up.

Review by Pioneerock

Excellent apps… easy to use - My friend showed me RDP and asked me to use Microsoft Remote Desktop. Since I work on my macbook pro, the software is not user friendly. I decide to pay for this app. Boys !! it’s so easy to login my VPS. Now I can work anywhere in the world using 1 IP address to avoid security screening

Review by djithm

Excellent Remote Application - As a remote user, this is what makes my work life enjoyable. The one thing I would want back from an earlier version is to have my remote computer appear locked. Right now, if I remote into my machine, anyone that would walk by my computer could essentially see everything on my screen while I am working on it. I have to turn my monitors off to prevent others from seeing my computer logged on while I work remotely.
