To Our Ignition Faithful

You may have heard that LogMeIn just launched a new, free remote control app in the App Store. With the announcement of this launch you might be wondering what that means for you and the freedom and flexibility you’ve come to love and depend on with Ignition.

Rest assured, LogMeIn is taking care of our dedicated Ignition users. In fact, as an early adopter of Ignition we’re updating your app to include HD remote control, video streaming and sound at no additional cost to you.  No subscription required.  No change to the features and functionality you love in Ignition.

We developed the new LogMeIn iOS app to continue the tradition we started with LogMeIn Free, providing users with free remote control of their PC or Mac from anywhere.

While users of the new LogMeIn app will need to purchase a subscription of LogMeIn Pro to use File Manager, Cloud Bank, or the new HD remote control, as an Ignition user your app will be updated for free, simply download the update on your iOS device.

Think of it as our way of saying Thank You.  Happy Holidays.

Have great meetings with Ignition, iOS 5 and Apple TV

OK, so you’ve got iOS 5, downloaded the latest Ignition update, tested out iMessage– now what?

A new feature, introduced by Apple in iOS 5, allows the ability to stream apps and content from your Apple device to a television using Apple TV.  And that introduces some interesting new possibilities for Ignition.  With this feature, you can share exactly what’s on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S with everyone in your next meeting with just a few clicks.  Stream your desktop — web pages, spreadsheets, photos, etc.

Here’s how we did it:

1. Make sure you have an iPad 2 or iPhone 4S running iOS 5.
2. Ensure your Apple TV and iPad 2 are connected to the same WiFi network.
3. Double-tap the home button on your iPad, slide to the right, and press the “AirPlay” button.
4. Use Ignition to access your computer or broadcast your favorite apps for a truly unique meeting experience.

Our Boston office has Apple TVs in all our common areas, and combined with Ignition’s ability to access our desktops and files, we seem to have everything at our fingertips. Apple TVs sell for $99 so it’s a pretty cheap investment for a potentially big benefit for your team.
