LogMeIn Ignition App, Now on Sale
The LogMeIn Ignition app takes the popular remote access program's convenience and ease of use, and makes it available on your iPhone. It's ideal for IT support people, but useful for anyone who needs to get control of their home computer while on the road. And for the rest of the weekend, LogMeIn Ignition will be available on the App Store at a 30% discount.
My doctor saw my iPhone and told me about this app. Apparently the owner of the company is another one of his patients. I've used the web-based version of the software to control computers behind my old company's firewall, because they didn't offer me VPN access. So, security FAIL, but productivity WIN.
There's nothing especially complex about the way the software works. It uses TLS over TCP to allow you to access the target computer, even behind a NAT gateway. You use the web portal or the LogMeIn Ignition standalone app to take over your computer's keyboard and mouse and view the screen remotely. There is also a Pro version which lets you transfer files between computers, print documents from a remote computer to a local printer, share files with others, and more for $69.95 a year.
The LogMeIn Ignition app gives you what you would have with the desktop version, with some nice multi-touch features. You pinch to zoom, single-finger tap to click, two-finger tap to right click, double tap to double click, two-finger swipe to scroll like a mouse wheel. You can even drag and drop by double tapping an object and sliding.
Probably because of the sale price of $19.95, LogMeIn Ignition is currently at second place on the Top Grossing Apps list in the App Store.

Those who can't log in, are you using Windows 7?
Even if you're not, try putting the computer's name before your username. For example if your name is Home-PC, and your username is ksong12, log in as Home-PC\ksong12If you like or found helpful anything I have said, please click that nice little Thanks button!

the app talks about transferring files too. so can u transfer a file from the pc via logmein ignition app over wifi/3g onto ur iphone and then access it via ifile on the iphone itself? if thats possible then thats something new and jaadu vnc doesnt do.

Jaadu is much better, and that guy looks really strung out. I think he came to my door selling all purpose cleaner last week.

I would get this app if it supported vnc into linux. And there's no support for sound at all. Pssh
