 Remote Access Using an iPad or iPhone
I’ve been using Log­MeIn’s soft­ware for a cou­ple years now and have been quite impressed with their iPad and iPhone apps as well! They work great. I only use Log­MeIn on my iPhone when I for­got some­thing at my office com­put­er that can­not wait til I return. The rea­son is because the screen is so small on the iPhone. For exam­ple, if I for­got to click send” on an email and ran out the door. I’d use Log­mein from the iPhone to send the email. As for the iPad, that is def­i­nite­ly a won­der­ful app due to the larg­er screen size! The Log­MeIn has a free and paid sub­scrip­tion. For con­trac­tors, you only need the free ver­sion if you are try­ing to login to 1 com­put­er. If you want to login to mul­ti­ple com­put­ers, I’d sug­gest the paid ver­sion. The App for the iPhone or iPad is $29.99 but is well worth the cost! I recent­ly was turned iTele­port, which looks like a com­peti­tor of Log­MeIn. To read a thor­ough review com­par­ing iTele­port to Log­mein, Vis­it this blog. I have not test­ed iTele­port, but from read­ing an arti­cle or two, it looks like Log­MeIn might be the same or bet­ter. Give Log­MeIn or iTele­port a try and let me know what you think. iTele­port has also done a bet­ter job, in my opin­ion or mar­ket­ing to the small busi­ness folks. Their short videos take after Drop­box and real­ly help con­sumers know what iTele­port does well!
