LogMeIn has notified its users that the free version of this remote-access service for iOS, Android, and Windows is no longer available.
A statement from the company says, in part:
After 10 years, the Free version of LogMeIn remote access will no longer be available. The paid, Pro version, with its advanced features for today’s mobile, cloud-centric professionals will continued to be offered and supported.
Why is LogMeIn doing this? Remote access is a mature market. Cloud services are the growth drivers. So, that’s what the company is focusing on.
LogMeIn Pro for Individuals costs $100 a year. Those who had previously purchased the iOS or Android app are being offered six months of free Pro service.

LogMeIn still offers other free services. A version of Join.me, its meeting/collaboration product, is still available without charge, as well as
its file sync-and-store product, Cubby.
