The Kindle Fire is getting an app surprise: the addition of LogMeIn Ignition, a desktop virtualization app, to the Amazon Appstore.
“Amazon’s entry into the tablet race opens up the opportunity for LogMeIn Ignition to address a new audience who can benefit from connecting their tablet to the PC or Mac.” said Andrew Burton, SVP Products at LogMeIn. “Having Ignition available on day one allows us to attract early buyers who will be exploring how the Kindle Fire can be used for home and work.”
LogMeIn Ignition is a remote access application that allows users to access any PC that has the software enabled on it. The program gives users the ability to fully control their PC, as well as the ability to manage and download files on the go.
The app is currently available for a one-time fee of $29.99, identical to the price of the iOS version. With several cloud-based remote access programs available for Android and iOS, check out if LogMeIn Ignition came out on top compared to GoToMyPC from Citrix.
