Android App Tablet Review: LogMeIn Ignition

by Marty Gabel

LogMeIn Ignition is an essential tablet app for anyone who needs to remotely access one or more computers from anywhere.

After creating an account at, you’ll need to purchase and install this app ($14.99) on your Android tablet, and an additional free app on the host Mac or PC you wish to access. After that, it’s simply a matter of accessing your computers directly from the tablet and taking advantage of features like running business applications from afar, or accessing all your files from anywhere.

The bigger screen real-estate and Honeycomb optimization really helps LogMeIn Ignition shine on Android tablets. Also, unlike similar apps that allow you to access your computers remotely, there’s no complicated set-up here and the ability to use it on Macs as well as PCs is a real bonus.
