There are a million reasons why it might be of great benefit to be able to control a Windows PC through an Apple mobile device. The Jump Desktop app is a simple and easy way to do this, and it will connect numerous networked machines into a single and easy to use app.
When using the Jump Desktop app the possibilities are endless. A business professional could use their mobile device to remotely control a complex presentation, a commuter could continue to work on something in their office while riding the train home, and someone who was in the middle of streaming a video could connect to the device and continue their viewing experience. The app allows full keyboard access and mouse functions, and all audio and video streaming will function as well. Connectivity can occur via a Google account, but a user can also opt to manually enter the IP address of their network instead.
There are other remote desktop apps like the Jaadu Remote Desktop and the iTap RDP client, but the Jump Desktop app is one that allows the two, normally incompatible, operating systems to function together in a unique and effective way.
The app works with iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone devices. A free Google account is not mandatory for functionality, but it is highly recommended for ease of use. The cost for the app is $9.99, and all updates are made available at no additional fee.
If you need access to any of your networked Windows devices the Jump Desktop app is a great way to get a full range of options and functions from anywhere.
