LogMeIn for Macs

LogMeIn has brought its services to Mac OS X, allowing platform-agnostic remote login to Macs -- with full controls --from any Internet-connected computer and some handheld devices. The connection scheme use SSL-secured links that go through the company's own datacenters, obviating the need for port forwarding and other configuration. After connnections are established, they are switched to a secure peer-to-peer link for better performance. A free preview of the service is currently available. [corrected]

A pro version of the service is due later this year, with pricing yet to be decided.

"LogMeIn certainly follows the Mac-mantra of being simple to use and we are thrilled that Mac owners will now have the same ability to access their digital lives as our PC users," said Michael Simon, CEO, LogMeIn, Inc. "This further extends our position as the leading provider of remote access products and builds on LogMeIn's commitment to providing a platform on which businesses and individuals can connect, work with and support all their digital assets.

    Yea!!! Finally

    I've been waiting for this to come around for a long time. This is great news! I thought gotomyPC would have come out with this first being one of the leaders in remote access.

    this is a welcome addition to app based remote control solutions a la apple remote desktop or timbuktu. finally something that has to be installed on the target machine only! i installed and tried it and i have to say so far it looks great. i'll need to do further testing though. also, i'm not sure how long they'll offer it as a free service.

    Will always be free

    LogMeIn for Mac will always be free. Their business model is about the free->premium upsell.

    Expect the free Mac version to includesremote control to a unlimited number of computers, and the pro version to have additional features like File Manager etc.
