Editors' review

Ignition distills the LogMeIn start-up process into a small, simple program. Instead of having to download and run the installer on an unfamiliar machine, you can carry around the lightweight Ignition on any USB device and run it from there.

It's a bit annoying that the program must be installed first on your home desktop. From there, copy the EXE onto a portable device such as an iPod, flash drive or a BlackBerry. Connect that device to any PC, double-click on Ignition and you've got instant access to any of the machines saved in your LogMeIn account. It also saves your username and password, skipping that pesky human memory component of the process.

Ignition works just fine on a standard hard drive for those of you who regularly use the same computer as your base for remote access and you need to quickly get in, do your remote thing and get out. Unfortunately, it's not free. It's not going to break your bank, either--it's only $8.95 a year. Be warned, though: Ignition doesn't allow access to your home PC from a handheld device, but given the innovation and diversity we're seeing here, hopefully that kind of functionality will come along soon enough.

    "Fast, reliable, easy-to-use app! Highly recommended!"

    Version: LogMeIn Ignition 1.2.275

    Pros

    I have used LogMeIn Ignition for several years now and have been very pleased with its ease-of-use, its quick connection, and its no-brainer controls. I bought it back when it cost fifty bucks--and it was worth it even then. At $7.95, it's an absolute steal! And contrary to the warning above ("Be warned, though: Ignition doesn't allow access to your home PC from a handheld device . . ."), on the contrary, I have no problem connecting with my home and office PCs from both my iPad and iPhone.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Summary

    Ignition is a simple, easy-to-use app that will save you loads of time by not requiring you to go through the login process required by LogMeIn (and GoToMyPC and other such remote-access programs). And at only $7.95, you absolutely have no excuse for not buying and using this reliable, time-saving application. Highly recommended!
