Customer Reviews

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.

Great and Reliable

I use Jump on various Macs to access about 75 servers and hundreds of workstations at work, using both VNC and RDP protocols. Always works flawlessly, and it is great to be able handle both protocols in one product.

I reguarly use it with dual monitors duplication out remote dual monitor installs, and even over a VPN connection, there is no lag. I seriously could use this to do my job 100% remotely if I wanted to.

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.
