Gone are the days when you had to carry your laptop around to carry out various office tasks such as preparing spreadsheets. Phase Five Systems have developed an app, Jump Desktop (Remote Desktop), that will enable you to work from anywhere in the world as long as you have your iPhone. Currently, the default languages are German, Japanese, and English.
Jump desktop is an easy to use remote desktop application that is programmed to give users full control of their computers by using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Unlike other similar apps, this one is fully compatible with VNC and RDP and it is 100% secure so you do not have to worry about your privacy and confidentiality. This means that you do not have to download any other software if your machine is VNC- or RDP-configured.
The developers have worked tirelessly to come up with an easy set up that is ideal for anyone. Even if you have never used a similar app before, you will still be able to derive maximum benefits from this app. All one has to do is click the “Automatic Setup” link and follow the simple instructions to access all its features.
One of the major highlights about this app is that you can use it to manage multiple computers all at the same time on a wifi Internet connection. You can also opt to do the same by using your Google account.
For your convenience, you do not have to close other apps to access it as it has a multitasking feature that you can use to switch operations. The developers have also incorporated multiple gesture support that you can use to draw and write sentences using your finger. It is also possible to transfer text from your computer to the app using the intuitive pasteboard.
This iOS remote desktop app also comes with a full Bluetooth keyboard support that you can use to access the best app stores features such as shortcuts and function keys. It also supports all Infinea and Linea barcode scanners. No need to struggle viewing your laptop as you can use the HDMI/VGA support to view your laptops or desktop on a bid screen. You can go a step further to activate the presentation mode when using an iPad or better yet, turn your mouse cursor into a laser pointer.
Despite the fact that you will be using your iPhone to access the desktop, you will still enjoy full mouse support. That is, you can move the mouse right, middle, left as well as drag or scroll documents when proofreading or looking for specific sentences.
