LogMeIn Lets You Log Into Your Home Computer From Anywhere

Website of the Day: LogMeIn

There's been a few times that I've been at the office and have needed to look up a name, contact, song, or detail in a file that is on my home computer, but I can't exactly run home to get it. So it was kind of a lifesaver that I found LogMeIn before a meeting. LogMeIn is a totally secure and safe site that lets you network with your home PC or Mac online from whatever computer you're currently using. Just a simple set up with a secure password and log-in info, you're ready to go. Plus with LogMeIn's iPhone App you don't even have to be at a computer at all to check out your home desktop. LogMeIn is free to use on your computer, but the iPhone App will set you back $30 dollars.

Yeah, LogMeIn is pretty slick. It used to be my favorite, but now I prefer RHUB for its better security and its appliance gives you everything in one setup.

I had a coworker looking at the iPhone app. If I can I'll try to remember to post some impressions after checking it out.

I want to try the iPhone app, just not sure I want to pay $30 if it isn't something that works well.

Dropbox is more for syncing files isn't it? LogMeIn lets you use your PC remotely.

I use DropBox, it sounds like the same thing.

LogMeIn is great. I've got it on every computer I use. They also offer a nice virtual VPN system through their Hamachi program. No firewall set up required.

Why did I think that was something to do with Chinese food?

Logmein saves my life every night. It allows me to work from home in the evening so I can have dinner with my hubby. Still havent used the iphone software yet though. It is still a little slow and buggy computer to computer, i dont imagine it would be a great experience on the iphone.

I'm so happy to see LogMeIn as the Website of the Day! I can't survive at work without this site. I'm able to visit all of the sites that are banned at work, lol. That way, THE MAN in the IT dept can't monitor me, lol.
