Yes! Jump Desktop for iOS has the ability to connect to a physical mouse on a stock iOS device. There are some limitations though - currently not all bluetooth mice are supported. Jump Desktop currently supports the following mice:
- Swiftpoint GT ($50 coupon inside the Jump Desktop app: 'Settings' -> 'Mouse & Gestures' -> 'Physical Mouse' to get the coupon)
- SwiftPoint ProPoint
- Citrix X1. (Note: We're currently investigating connection problems with newer Citrix X1 models purchased after Nov 15th 2019. We'll add updates here once our investigation is complete).
To start using the mouse with Jump Desktop make sure the mouse is paired to your iPad/iPhone by opening up the Settings -> Bluetooth. Then open up Jump and connect to your computer. Jump should automatically start working with your mouse.
To configure mouse options (sensitivity, swapping the left and right buttons), open up Jump and then then tap the settings icon on the top left and then Mouse & Gestures -> Physical Mouse . Alternatively you can also change these options while you're connected to the remote computer by tapping the tool icon on at the top and then tapping the Physical Mouse row.
Citrix X1 users: You don't need to have any Citrix apps installed on your iPad / iPhone to use the Citrix X1 mouse with Jump. The X1 will simply work with Jump.

Generic mouse support in iPadOS and iOS 13
iPadOS and iOS 13 adds a new accessibility feature that lets users pair a bluetooth mouse with iOS. Mice paired via accessibility also work with Jump Desktop, however support for this is limited due to limitations in iOS's API. We're investigating ways to make the most of what iOS exposes to apps, however in the meantime the following mouse features will not work with generic mice: hover, scrolling (middle mouse wheel) and right clicks. You can simulate a right click in Jump by holding down the left click button for 1 second (or until you see a blue ripple).
To activate the bluetooth mouse on iOS 13, Open up the Settings app -> Accessibility -> Touch -> AssisitiveTouch. Turn on AssistiveTouch and scroll down to the Device section and pair your mouse.
