    There is no right click drag? that would be very helpful for the software I use and Windows in general. A great addition would be a small mouse icon on the screen and you could use that instead of the circle (obviously with an option to go between the two).

    @Clifford - we'll look into this.

    @Simon - Added to our Android todo list. Is there a specific input method you want to see on? Is it the pen / stylus input method?

    Hi there - awesome product for me so far.  But it would be very useful and far more easy to control, if it'd be possible to scroll horizontally left and right (with two finger swipe).  Thanks.

    @James: Can you please open up a support ticket? This might be related to a VNC server issue we're currently tracking. Also, if anyone else sees a similar problem please open up a ticket by emailing [email protected]

    @Mark: No right click drag at this point. We'll add this in a future update - along with middle button drag.

    @ Jump Desktop Support - Specificall the Pen type input method .. I am using this to control Volume faders in some software that turns volumes um and down in venues. In Pen input mode in the Ipad, this works perfectly, just touch and drag. Would love this input option in the Android and Iphone app

    @Rob When connecting to Macs Jump sends a Ctrl+Left click for a right click. It seems like GE's Centricity doesn't support Ctrl+Left click. We'll add an option in the next update that lets you send true right clicks to Macs. 

    @Clifford - Siri dictation not working - this is a known issue with Jump 4.0.6. This should be fixed in our next update (we already have it working in our beta releases). Please hang on for the fix.

    Using just the RDP protocol, connecting to my mac (using my iPAD) the scroll does not work.

    Hi, i connected my iPhone 4 to my laptop with no problems. This is using a gmail account. All I would like to know is: How do I connect and use my iPhone and see everything change on the laptop?

    Because everytime I connect on the phone the Laptop locks. Do I need to change a setting?

    Thank you

    Love this app!!! I'm having a blash using Adobe Illustrator on my iPad. The only thing is I wish I could use my iPhone as a trackpad.

    @Hennie, you need to enable Jump's 'screen sharing' mode. Try re-running the Configuration Wizard:

    1. On your PC click: Start -> Jump Desktop -> Jump Desktop
    2. Click the Options link and then click Configuration Wizard
    3. When the Configuration Wizard pops up be sure to select the 'Remote Desktop (VNC)' option
    4. Follow the wizard steps to completion
    5. Once you're done you'll see a new connection appear for your computer on your iPad and iPhone with 'vnc' in the name.
    6. Tap it to connect and you should be able to see your screen without locking your laptop screen.

    Is there any way to get at all the three finger if not also the four finger lion gestures on the iPad VNC?  App switching, launchpad, etc. 

    Also horizontal scrolling doesnt seem to work (two fingers sideways).. it only scrolls vertically (mouse wheel)

    Right click drag would be a BIG help for me. I just switched from Logmein since they are limiting the number of computers you can have. I originally went with them because of the ability to right click drag. I noticed there was a comment above about adding it a while ago. Am I missing something? Can you please help me understand how to right click?

    To use Solidworks on my pc, I need to be able to press the middle mouse button and scroll the wheel. This is used to rotate the image you are viewing. This is the only think keeping me from traveling with my iPad and leaving my laptop home .Also CNTRL-middle press and scroll is used for zoom. It would be better for me if you supported a Bluetooth mouse with 3 buttons and a scroll. I would pay you $100 for that software enhancement and I will buy my own mouse. Not having a mouse, keeps the iPad down, in my opinion.

    @Simon - the iPhone version has an option to hide the circle underneath the mouse, not the mouse pointer.
