Version 6.0.3
Review by nikshornikov

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 5.0.2
Review by shareef777

Buggy and lacks features for what it charges - Tags are poorly implemented. Not only does the app crash when creating new tags, there’s no simple method to add a tag to mulitple machines. You need to go into each and every machine you want assigned a tag. It’s also hit or miss with the app crashing when adding the tag to every few machines. Additionally, there should be SSH connections support. How can you charge $30 and there’s no SSH support!? If you’re managing multiple RDP sessions, it’s extremely likely that you also SSH into machines as part of your job. Finally, how is there no setting for global resolution and/or credentials? I should be able to set a default resolution vs having to change it for each and every machine I have. Also should be able to set a default login for all my RDP sessions.

Simply Amazing - I have been a user of Jump Desktop for several years and many versions (Both OSX and IOS). The developer is constantly improving the application, regular updates and fixes.. Very responsive to issues with quick fixes. There are few apps out there that I buy that I also feel deserve a positive review and this is one of those few. The application works well, does exactly what it is supposed to do. The developer is constantly improving the product. What more can you ask for!

Review by foobarbazquux

Great product - Very happy with Jump. The price seemed high at first, but being able to easily remote in to work means it pays for itself almost immediately. The full screen functionality with Windows 10 is really nice. I've yet to have any issues after daily use for a few months now. A few coworkers are also using it now due to my recommendation.
