LogMeIn Delivers Easy & Secure Remote Access for iPhone and iPod touch
LogMeIn Ignition Now Available via iTunes App Store

Woburn, Mass., December 16, 2008 – Mobile individuals and IT service providers can now control their remote computers from their Apple® iPhone™ and iPod® touch using LogMeIn Ignition. The application is available for download from the iTunes® App Store for £19.52.

With one touch from their Apple device, customers can connect to their remote office or home computer and work as if they were sitting in front of it. LogMeIn Ignition for iPhone and iPod touch connects to desktops and laptops running LogMeIn Pro, LogMeIn IT Reach, or LogMeIn Free, and can be used to control Windows PCs and Mac OS computers.*

"What our customers value about LogMeIn is how easy it is to set up and use, and that it’s secure. LogMeIn Ignition brings together the simplicity of our service with the great user experience of the iPhone and iPod touch," said Kevin Farrell, vice president and general manager, Digital Living, LogMeIn. "Now, iPhone and iPod touch users who need to access important programmes 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."

LogMeIn Ignition beta tester, Neil Shapiro, president of EFriends Inc., said, "Ignition proved to be the very best solution to connect my iPhone 3G to my Mac and PC computers. In my experience, no other programme came close to the speed, the ease of use and the general reliability of LogMeIn. This allows me to take access to my home and business computers with me as I travel and adds a further dimension to my computing abilities."

Key features of LogMeIn Ignition for iPhone and iPod touch include:

- Fast, secure remote computer access: LogMeIn Ignition is able to securely store login information, shortening the time it takes to access remote PCs and Mac® computers from an iPhone and iPod touch. With 256-bit SSL encryption and patent-pending technology for direct, point-to-point connections, Ignition delivers optimal speed, trusted security and reliable performance.

- Easy to set up: Even the non-technical user can remotely access their computer using LogMeIn Ignition. There are no firewall settings to be updated, no router configurations to be made, no ports to be opened or re-routed, and no need for static IP addresses. Ignition provides simple connectivity without IT intervention.

- Easy to use: A full multi-function keyboard and touch-screen zoom and scroll control let users work with their remote computer as if they were sitting in front of it.
