    There are different kinds of jumping spiders, but I can't narrow it down past jumping spider. If it's on your balcony, you can call the police and say there's a jumper on your balcony. Maybe they'll get the joke and won't haul you off to the station afterwards.

    After looking through Google, the spider that looked the closest to that one is Sitticus rupicola.

    Edit:

    It might not be it, but I tried. :x Hope this helps!

    Edit: Yeah, it probably isn't it since it doesn't really have fur on its legs...Hopefully Google can help.

    Aside from jumping, does it do anything else noteworthy?

    noteworthy? its a spider...........actually some species of jumpers are fairly intelligent as far as bugs go.....the Portia genus has show that they can actually plan a stalk that will take them out of sight of their prey and to improvise if things dont go right......
