If you’re on the go a lot or just need to be sure you can access your desktop or office computer quickly when you need to, then remote access software is probably something you’ve looked at. Now, you can do it from your iPad or iPhone using apps like LogMeIn Ignition.
The app works pretty simply: you get a streamed image of exactly what’s on your desktop to your iOS device. This means you can access any of your home or office computer’s applications, files, etc. through the iPad or iPhone’s screen and make changes, transfer files, send emails, etc. as if you were sitting in front of your computer itself.
Using yoru finger, you can move your computer’s mouse pointer, click/scroll/drag/double-tap the mouse, zoom in and out on things on the screen so you can avoid things looking too small, and more.
With the new updates that were just added to Ignition, you can fully integrate your iPad with your home or office computer and even transfer files between remote computer systems from the device.
The app is feature-rich, runs very well, and has a lot of options for maximizing your productivity while using it. You can even put your computer on “sleep” mode and wake them up via the app for access, then put them back to sleep when you’re done. So no leaving your system on and wasting electricity.
A very nice app and worth having if you’re on the go.
