LogMeIn iOS App Goes Freemium

LogMeIn has launched a free version of its remote desktop app, enabling users to remotely view, access and control any PC or Mac that has the LogMeIn Free software installed, using their iOS devices.

“Mobile devices, most notably the iPad, have given rise to an entirely new audience looking to remotely access their computer files and applications on the go.  Not surprisingly, mobile has become an increasingly important driver for introducing new people to LogMeIn’s services, and we believe we’re just scratching the surface of this growing demand,” said Michael Simon, president and CEO of LogMeIn.  “By combining our mobile and free service strengths, we can bring the benefits of top-shelf remote access to virtually anyone and everyone with an iPhone or iPad.”

LogMeIn replaces LogMeIn Ignition, the top grossing third-party iPad app of 2010, and uses a freemium pricing model, with the option of an in-app purchase, of £27.99 annually, to enable access to Pro features.
