(NASDAQ: LOGM), makers of one of the top grossing apps in Apple’s iTunes store, just unveiled a new update of LogMeIn Ignition for iPhone/iPad, the popular remote access app.  Among the new capabilities is a hybrid approach to controlling and interacting with remote computers via the iPad’s touch display.  Blending touch and point-and-click controls, it gives users the ability to naturally interact with Windows or Mac-based interfaces on the iPad.  The update also supports gesture-triggered swiping to more easily switch between multiple monitors, as well as new in-app search for quickly locating and connecting to a specific computer.  The LogMeIn Ignition update is now available from the Apple App Store.

Video demonstrations of the new navigation capabilities and in-app search are available on LogMeIn’s YouTube channel.

Additional details on the new capabilities:

  • Direct mode navigation – Blends touch and click navigation, allowing users to simply click the screen for easy navigation and interact with remote computers as if they were native multi-touch apps
  • Gesture-based monitoring switching – Allows left/right three-finger swiping to change monitor views.
  • In app searching – Helps users find specific computers within their computer list, to more easily and quickly connect to a remote computer

Pricing, availability and additional details
