Jump Desktop - Remote Desktop questions
So I have decided to go for Jump Desktop on my iPad 2 - It seems to be not as popular, but it seems to be fast, be able to be used through 3G Wifi, have excellent Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Support, and all that fun jazz. I haven't ordered it yet as I have a few questions.
1. Why isn't Jump Desktop as popular? Is there something it's missing that I am just not picking up?
2. Is it possible to boot up my Mac/wake it up from sleep from my iPad? An additional app for that?
3. For someone with Jump Desktop - how is the performance? Is it good enough for iTunes/Microsoft Word/Watching some Hulu videos? Is sound supported?
MacBook Pro, 2.2ghz Quad-Core i7 Processor, 15" 1680x1050 Anti-Glare LCD, 8gbs of RAM, 750gb, 5400rpm HD, AMD Radeon 6750M HD, Mac OS X + Windows 7 Ultimate

I just installed Jump Desktop last night on my IPad 2. Hitting my Macbook Pro and my IMac at the office with it. I have Dual Monitors on the IMac and it works effortless and it is very quick even on 3G. I am also using Parallels and running windows 7 on the second monitor, I need some programs for my job otherwise I would NEVER use windows again. Good thing is Windows 7 Runs very well on a Mac and never locks up or anything, Better than a PC could ever Imagine. The only thing that I noticed so far is you can not play and hear your Video or Audio files using VNC in the set up. I guess RDP is what you need and it is Windows based. I will try and find a way so I can stream Audio and Video somehow from my Mac's to the Ipad. I don't even really want to mess with the windows 7 side for this to work. When ICloud comes out I am thinking all these problems will be resolved for Audio and Video Streaming, we will see.
If someone knows how, please chime in and let us all know.

When I last checked, Jump and Wyse Pocketcloud were the only apps meeting these requirements. I tried both and liked the user interface of Jump better (it seemed smoother and I didn't like the bulky mouse tool of Wyse). It also supports connecting through SSH tunnels, which comes in handy for accessing machines behind a firewall.
