  2. I was going to buy the ignition for iPad however in reading the reviews saw that the wake on LAN was taken out of the ignition for iPad. Is this true? I really would like your software but will not download it unless it has wake on LAN.

    • Thanks for your comments. We aware of the customer demand for wake on LAN – especially with Ignition for iPad/iPhone. Today you can WOL from an internet browser using My Computers or the Central console on LogMeIn.com. Recently we have added functionality for Ignition Android users to WOL from an Android phone or tablet. Regarding Ignition for iPad, the review you read is incorrect as we have not rolled out this feature as of yet on iPad. Please stay tuned.
