LogMeIn Ignition 3.5
Access your PC or Mac from your iPhone or iPad

Everyone has experienced the need to access their computer - home or office - when out and about. Whether you have forgotten to take a copy of a file you need to work on, or simply want to shut down your machine without having to hop in the car to do so, the uses for remote access are almost endless.

Using LogMeIn Ignition, you can use your Mac or PC from your iPhone or iPad as if you were sat in front of it. There are obviously compromises to be made due to the smaller screen sizes, particularly in the case of the iPhone, but the app has been designed in such a way to negate this problem.

Getting up and running could hardly be simpler, and you should be remotely connected to your computer in a matter of minutes. Your remote sessions are password protected and encrypted to prevent snooping, and you can configure profiles for multiple machines if you regularly remotely access several computers.

There is no getting away from the fact that iPad users get a far better deal here, but the retina display of the iPhone 4 does an excellent job of displaying the contents of a full sized desktop. On the negative side, while it is possible to remotely shutdown a computer you are connected to, a lack of support for Wake On LAN means that it is not possible to switch them on.

LogMeIn Ignition is now a free download, but requires an in-app LogMeIn Pro subscription.

What's new in v3.5?

- Bugfixes

Verdict:

A remarkably simple way to access your computer from your idevice. This is an impressive use of technology which, although not perfect, is incredibly useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
