LogMeIn Pro…Now in HD!

Here’s a holiday present for you LogMeIn Pro users out there.  We’ve just released an update that we hope will quite literally change the way you view remote control for both work and play.  That’s right, Pro has gone HD.  Delivering the best for your remote control sessions and video streaming capabilities. And just in case you missed our other big news, LogMeIn launched a completely Free app for iOS.  That’s right, the app is 100% free and works with LogMeIn Free and LogMeIn Pro.

So what does HD have to do with remote access?

First, you’ll notice a rather remarkable difference when viewing remote PCs (we’re extending to Macs in early 2012).  In fact, you might even have a hard time distinguishing between a local view and a remote view.  Beyond that, HD opens the doors to a whole host of activities you may never have tried with remote access before.  Whether it’s games, movies, TV shows, or just a better way to access your computer, it’s now all in HD quality.

If you haven’t already, make sure to click OK on updater, give HD a test run, and let us know your thoughts.  After all, it was your feedback that helped shaped this latest update.  So keep the ideas coming.   And don’t forget to download the free LogMeIn app in the App Store.

User Tip: To ensure you’re getting the HD experience, make sure your color quality settings are set to HD during remote sessions.
