Sydney, Australia, November, 24, 2011  — LogMeIn (Nasdaq:LOGM) just published an update to its popular LogMeIn Ignition for iPad/iPhone app that blends the best of cloud services and remote access into a single app. Featuring integration with Dropbox and Google Docs, the new Ignition update gives iOS users the ability to quickly and seamlessly view, copy, transfer and save files between their mobile devices, personal or work computers, and popular cloud services. As a result, iPad and iPhone owners can access all of their digital files from anywhere with an internet connection — and never have to worry about forgetting to put a file into the cloud.

Existing LogMeIn Ignition for iPad/iPhone users can take advantage of the new cloud integration capabilities through a free update. New users can get the app in the iTunes App Store for a one-time fee of $31.99.

More information on the new capabilities is available on LogMeIn’s product blog, http://B.LogMe.In.

The LogMeIn Ignition for iPad/iPhone app gives users the ability to remotely access PCs and Macs from an iOS device — remotely view and control computers or simply access the computers’ file systems. With the introduction of My Cloud Bank, users of Ignition can now:

  • Transfer files and folders between remote computers and the cloud while on the go
  • View files and folders on their computers and popular cloud storage and sync services like Dropbox and Google Docs on their iPad and/or iPhone
  • Save files from the cloud or remote computers on to an iOS device

“The anywhere, anytime, any device benefits of remote access and cloud services have always been closely aligned. With the introduction of My Cloud Bank, we’re delivering the best of both worlds, giving users intuitive, single point access to their files wherever they are stored,” said Andrew Burton, SVP Products at LogMeIn. ”We see it as an important step in expanding the value of remote access and the cloud to all of a user’s digital information — a virtual insurance policy for always having important files at your fingertips.”

Originally introduced for the iPhone, Ignition has since been extended to other major smartphone and tablet platforms, including the iPad, Android devices and most recently the Amazon Kindle Fire. It consistently ranks as one of the highest rated and top grossing apps on the popular app stores and was named the top grossing 3rd party app for the iPad in 20101.
