Mobile professionals and IT service providers can now remotely control computers from their Apple iPhone using LogMeIn Ignition.

“Now, iPhone and iPod touch users who need to access important programs and files on any of their LogMeIn Internet-enabled computers can do so easily over an encrypted, secure connection. We believe it is the simplest way to take an office anywhere,” said Kevin Farrell, vice president and general manager, Digital Living, LogMeIn.
