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 lguinn

It works… so much better - I have used other products to RDP to Windows boxes, but Jump Desktop has worked the best for me. The open source products are free, but buggy; for me, they crash often and lag on updates. The Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Clients (all the versions!) are not configurable if you need to use different ports, etc. And they also randomly fail to connect in my environment - so far my team has had no luck in determining a root cause. I am very happy with this product. It is worth the money to be able to connect reliably. It is fast and the UI is easy. I know it is a small thing, but the ability to dynamically resize the window is a feature that is sadly lacking in the Microsoft clients.

Version 7.1.2
Review by Brendan McCann

Updates keep deleting my entire computer list... - I have 30 or so computers set up and synced with iCloud. For a while, everything was great. One day, they were gone, so I had to set them up all over again. Today I open Jump Desktop on my Mac, and they have disappeared again. This is extremely frustrating because every time I add them back one-by-one, I also have to re-input my password for each computer on each device! Batch editing them does not save the password for my other devices. You are ruining your product with every update that causes this to happen.

Review by Alan IOS Fan

Best remote tool - I have been using remote software for many years, this is by far the most reliable and well executed software in the market. I use it to connect from Mac to Mac, Mac to Windows and vice versa, iOS versions also work great in iPhone and iPad. It ALWAYS works and has all the features I need. Big thankyou to the developers, you make my work really easy and enjoyable.
