LogMeIn - App Review

Not wishing to reinvent the wheel, here is the promise straight from the horse's (OK, developer's) mouth:

'LogMeIn Pro gives you fast, easy remote access to your PC or Mac from your browser, desktop and mobile devices. Premium features like file transfer, file sharing and remote printing help you stay connected and productive wherever you go. As an added benefit, phone support is available for Pro users 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.'

So, how do they deliver?

Now for the ACIDS test:

The first thing you need to do is open a free account with LogMeIn. You need only provide an email address and password to open your account. You need to also download the software to your PC which is also a painless install.

Having done this you will see the PC (or more than one) named on the screen of the App. Tapping the icon invites you to enter the user name and password that you use on your PC. Having done this, you will see your PC user screen on your iOS device. It's as simple as that. There are a myriad of settings for you to play with and personalise.

The system is very fast (try it with your iOS device and PC both in front of you), and has a great mouse on the iOS screen.

This service also works from one PC to another, as well as from an Android device (not tested).

The App is free of charge. After the initial free trail, the service costs $99.00 per year for up to 2 computers, with further packages for larger set-ups.

Having access to your PC remotely is something we have all needed, or wished for, at some time.

The system works and frankly, is very impressive.

Whenever you share information, there is a risk. Although no security issues were detected, you need to be aware of what you are doing.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Remote access to your entire PC, easily.
