LogMeIn Ignition Now Available for Amazon Kindle Fire

Popular Mobile App Brings Remote Access to New Kindle Tablet Owners

WOBURN, Mass., Nov. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn's (Nasdaq:LOGM) top grossing productivity app1, LogMeIn Ignition, is moving to Amazon's highly anticipated Kindle Fire. Ignition, one of the world's most popular remote access apps that lets people access and control their PCs and Macs from a smartphone or tablet, was recently added to the Amazon Appstore and is tested and available on Kindle Fire. With the new app, Kindle Fire owners can benefit from blending the full power of PC or Macs with a lightweight, simple-to-use media tablet.      

The app is available immediately on Kindle Fire on the Amazon Appstore for Android for a one-time fee of $29.99 at www.amazon.com/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."

Originally introduced for the iPhone, Ignition has since been extended to other major smartphone and tablet platforms and consistently ranked as one of the highest rated and top grossing apps on the popular app stores — it was named the top grossing 3rd party app for the iPad in 20102.
