    Hi,

    Any chance of the "Locked Screen" mode on Android/Kindle Fire?

    I am trying to control a program on my Mac that has on-screen faders (vertical sliders) and it is annoying that the screen keeps scrolling out of the way when I get to the end of the fader, but if I resize the view to use less area they are hard to control.

    You guys have the best app, especially the keyboard input. But what you lack is a track pad mode. Spend a few minutes with the Desktop Connect app and you will see what I mean. Having to keep your finger in the little blue circle is kinda rediculous, and there is no need for it, as the other app shows. I still use your app because I need to type, but but every time I have to reach for the circle, I am reminded of how it could be better.

    @Simon - it's actually exactly like the iPad's 'Pen mode' - the only difference is you can see the mouse pointer.

    Btw guys - we've implemented right click drag + middle click + middle click drag in the latest Jump Desktop 5.5 release.

    I have just discovered that by swiping the top row of function keys on the keyboard the Fn keys appear. This is perfect for my use case. I cannot speak highly enough of this app. An iPhone as a track pad will be icing on Alan already very tasty cake. Keep up the good work guys.

    @JC Thanks for the suggestion - we'll look into trackpad mode (we know exactly what you're talking about). Thought, I'd like to clarify the current mouse implementation though: You don't need to keep your finger inside the circle to control the mouse - the mouse follows your taps and unlike trackpad mode, you can tap directly at the screen element you want to manipulate (i.e tapping a button or dragging an icon). Incase you haven't already take a look at this short video to see how to control the mouse with Jump Desktop: http://support.jumpdesktop.com/entries/156806 .

    Is there the option to hide the mouse cursor in the IPHONE version?

    This app rocks. I have been struggling with PocketCloud Pro, and though I prefer their pointer implementation, you two finger scroll and especially your MUCH better connectivity rock. I do wish,you,had an Auto screen size option.

    I love your app, but I have a suggestion.  It would be great if you could add functionality to allow a user to use their iPhone (connected to their iPad via Bluetooth) as a trackpad.  Check out the Citrix Receiver app - this function is really helpful.  I'd love to see that functionality in Jump Desktop as well!  Cheers

    I've tried several RDP and VNC applications, and this is the first one that has felt comfortable to me. I'm mainly using Jump on a Samsung Galaxy S3, and on an Asus Infinity with the keyboard dock. The only feature I'm missing is the ability to tap-to-click on the touchpad. Is there a setting I'm just not seeing? Other than that minor wish, I'm totally satisfied with your app. I liked it so much that I upgraded to the paid version!

    @Will Thanks for the suggestion - this is a common suggestion. We're making some infrastructure changes in our code that'll allow us to implement this feature in a future release. Please hang on.

    Auto screen size... Sets the host desktop size to the clients screen size. If you connect while in portrait the screen adjusts vs logging in landscape.

    I have a suggestion, it would be nice to be able to use the IPad/IPhone camera as a barcode reader as another form of keyboard?

    Is it much programming to pass the option to disable it?

    @Tim thanks for the suggestion. We'll look into adding tap-to-click.

    Suggestion, I want to use trackpad mode not only on iPhone but also on iPad in the video out mode. I'm using video out for larger screen. When I use Jump app with video out mode, I have to find a small circle on iPad. In the case of iPhone, there is trackpad mode. It's perfect! Why not iPad? PLZ make it possible on iPad.

    (Fixed the spelling mistake for you)

    We'll add it to the feature list. Though, it'll only hide the mouse cursor and not actually effect any functionality. Are you sure you're not expecting different functionality?

    @Eric can you tell me a little more about the 'Auto screen size' option? What does it do?

    Thanks.

    @Carlos - this is a really, really specific scenario. So far you're the only one who's asked for this. We'd need a few more people to request this feature before we can actually do this.

    @Seonghoon - Thanks for the suggestion. Look for this in the next update (right now the current version is 4.0.5 - you'll see this in our next release major release).

    Just found a PC application that will hide the Mouse pointer, so hopefully this will sort what I need in the interim

    @Eric thanks for the explanation - this helps. We'll look into this. Generally we've seen that Jump's default (Portrait) is most appropriate for most RDP setups. Thats said, we're also exploring 'on the fly' resolution changes with RDP connections which will let you switch from landscape to portrait (it will require a disconnect and reconnect, but Jump will automatically do that for you).

    Hi, I have found that Siri Dictation does not work with your app, but it does with iTap application.  Copy Paste is enabled in my settings, let me know if there is some secret way to enable that feature.  If I open a text doc on RDP server, and open the keyboard, and use the Mic button, no text is passed to the text box.  Thanks

    using iPad and Jump Desktop to RDP into my MacBook.  MacBook has OpenVPN (not available for iOS) which is needed to link into work server.  Jump works great except right click feature.  When running an application like GE's Centricity, the right click gestures flash the blue ring (from a double tap or long hold) but it does not perform the right click function.

    Anyway you could just add a button to the top (maybe in place of one of the two keyboard buttons) to perform right click function?
