LogMeIn Ignition for iOS introduces My Cloud Bank

We just released an update LogMeIn Ignition for iPad/iPhone.  With the latest release users can link their Ignition product to popular cloud services, like Dropbox, Google Docs and WebDav, to access all their files anytime, anywhere on their iOS devices.   My Cloud Bank works like File Manager within the app, so users can easily move files between computers, their local device and their clouds.

My Cloud Bank allows LogMeIn Ignition users the ability to take full advantage of being remote by connecting them to their files no matter where they are. We’ve extended the functionality of our File Manager feature and given users the benefit of using cloud storage services in conjunction with remote access and local file storage on their devices.

Infographic: Dissecting the unproductive meeting

We all know the guy (or gal) who spends the whole work day in meetings—each merging into the next. Every day they come in early and stay late to make up the hours lost to discussion, debate and data dissection. But the work keeps piling up. [sigh]

Don’t be this person!

Meetings can be an effective way to drive forward ideas and plans. But if not managed properly they can be a time suck that leaves you right where you started. This infographic by Meetin.gs summarizes where meetings fall short and where a modern meeting tool like join.me can make them more productive and useful– in less time. How much time do you think you can save?

How Technology Can Improve Your Meeting

         

Success Through Trial and Error

The join.me team recently returned from FailCon – a one-day conference for technology entrepreneurs, investors, developers and designers to study their own and others’ failures and prepare for success. It was inspiring to say the least. Stories of trial and triumph, missteps and the force of will made for great conversation and a few good laughs.

At FailCon we met fans that use join.me screen sharing to improve their work process and mitigate failure. Business partners shared how they co-develop web apps by running join.me sessions to monitor progress in real time. Another group explained how they use join.me to exchange ideas while designing jewelry and clothing lines collaboratively. Numerous people snuck in stories of simple training sessions to assist parents with personal computer mishaps. And of course, tales of sales presentations and internal meetings were abundant. We loved connecting with fans and hearing their stores in person!

The take away? Failure breeds success.

No one wants to fail. We’re smart and keep up with the latest, but sometimes things just don’t go as planned. That’s ok. Successful people know to use it as an opportunity to identify what didn’t work and move forward with a lesson learned.

Tales told by the day’s Speakers reinforced the truth that with every trial comes varying levels of success and failure that lead you to the final– and fantastic – end result. It’s part of the regeneration process. So if you hit a bump in the road…keep going!

Here at join.me we’re continuing to test new ideas. What are you working on right now? And what are you learning along the way?

The New LogMeIn Rescue – From Desktop to Handheld In Seconds!

These are exciting times for LogMeIn Rescue! Today, we are announcing game changing enhancements to our flagship remote support solution. With this version, we focused on helping you do more with the exploding population of smartphones and tablets, and making access to the Rescue Technician Console easier, faster, and more convenient.

So what’s new?

Well, we’ve enhanced mobile configuration capabilities for email, WiFi, device permissions, and device pass code issues. Put these together with Rescue’s integrated chat and you can now resolve mobile problems more quickly and easily than in the past.

We’re really excited about the new Rescue Desktop App. Using the App, you’ll be able to launch the Technician Console directly from your desktop without the hassle of a web browser. Don’t worry though, the browser version isn’t going anywhere – you choose which to use!

With these features and more, we can’t wait to hear your feedback. If you haven’t already, why not head on over and login or, if you’re new to the neighborhood, create a free trial account to try the new LogMeIn Rescue?

Infographic: Mobile screen sharing via tablets

In our last blog post we shared presenter-swap stories from join.me users during business meetings and team collaboration sessions. But what about when you’re not together? With the rising adoption of mobile devices and tablets join.me makes it much easier to meet on the go. Here’s an infographic shared by MobileBeat that breaks down how far workforce adoption of tablet technology has come and where they think it will go.

Tablet adoption in the workplace

Another cool use of the tablet? Event planners and presenters are starting to use join.me screen sharing to make it easy for their audience to view presentation content from the waaaay back of a crowded conference hall room.  It’s just another clever use of screen sharing that we love.

How are you using your mobile device to stay connected?
