LogMeIn, the company behind Ignition (TMA Review) – a fantastic app that lets you remotely control your computer – has just released LogMeIn and it’s completely Free. Users can now access their PC/Mac on their iPhone or iPad and it won’t even cost them a dime. Also new is the ability to stream HD video and sound from your computer to the iDevice (available for Windows while coming soon for Mac). This sweet feature is included in the premium Ignition app, while free LogMeIn users can have video streaming, file transfers, My Cloud bank integration and remote printing via an annual in-app purchase of $39.99.
Splashtop Remote Desktop (TMA Review), a very capable remote access app that allows your iPad to connect to your PC, now has a Free version that will support connections of up to 5 minutes at a time. For those not familiar with Splashtop, the app gives users the ability to control their computer right from the iPad. Unlike many of the competition, it even supports video and audio playback, meaning you can also play flash or windows games remotely. So long as you’re connected with relatively strong wifi signal, Splashtop works surprisingly well.
If you do decide to check out the Free version and like it, Splashtop Remote Desktop is now on sale for $0.99. At this price, you’d be hard pressed to find a similar app that will offer as much in return.
