Today's Amazon Appstore deal is quite the bargain, and its value speaks for itself. Jump Desktop isn't the only remote desktop client out there, but it has no shortage of features. The app supports both RDP and VNC protocols, so if you have either already configured on your PC, you're good to go. Jump Desktop does not require that you install additional software on your machine. Awesome? Awesome.

The app allows you to control your computer as though it were a tablet, with pinch-zoom and two finger scrolling both supported. If you plug in an external keyboard and/or mouse into your Android device, you should find that all the usual keyboard shortcuts and mouse clicks work as expected. It works on Windows. It works with Mac OS X. It even works with Linux.

Really, Jump Desktop's feature list is too long to repeat in the confines of this post - just give Amazon a visit and check it out for yourself. At $9.99, Jump Desktop is usually more expensive than most Android apps. Today, that is no longer the case. Enjoy.

    Yea but I will have to install Amazon Appstore :(

    I've been using Jump for several months now. It is by far one of the most intuitive Remote Desktops out there for Android. Even pretty easy to use on smaller, low-res screens.

      I bought it back when they had a big sale. If not for the horrible-looking menu UI before connecting to the host, it would be by far the best RDP & VNC app available. The UI once you have connected is great and fits Android well.

    Any advantage over TeamViewer? It's always free and has worked amazingly well for me.

    I'll probably grab it... just in case.

    • John

      Don't get me wrong.. TeamViewer is fantastic, but with this app you don't have to have any extra/special software running on the remote computer, which is a nice plus

        I tried it now. Looks like for automatic setup I will have to install the client in PC. For manual setup I will need static IP from ISP. If no static IP then I will need to configure DNS and for which I will need to install a DNS client again. Am I missing anything here?

        • John

          True about the automatic setup. You don't necessarily have to install a DNS update client. Use something like FreeDNS. Your IP shouldn't change all that often. When it does, just update the record on their website manually. Few different ways to go about it. What home router do you use -- use third party firmware (dd-wrt, tomatousb, OpenWrt, etc)? Some have a DDNS update feature that'll always keep your IP up to date. It may not be the best option, but there are some ways around having to go the client route is all I'm sayin.

    It shows noodles - To Do List as the Free app for today in the german amazon app store.

    • Göran Sävström

  • RitishOemraw

    And this is why I like AP.....the one day that I forget to check the daily free app it is awesome and goodguy AP reminds me to get it :D
    (Another reason is the APK teardowns.....best android site!)

    Also, glad that Amazon doesn't do check location as accurately as they used to.

    I used to be able to get stuff when it was US only, then they did the region check, but I think when they opened up to some eu countries the check is less accurate so I am back in :D
