Logmein Free no longer available


I’ve been a user of Logmein Free for many years now. At the peak of my usage, I even bought the App on the iPad. It’s still the most expensive I’ve ever bought from the Apple App Store. As I logged in today, I received a notification that Logmein Free is no longer available. Due to my loyalty, I have been granted 6months free subscription to the paid Logmein Pro.

This is quite sad as I like their service, and it has been a reliable method for me to access my home PCs remotely. Some months back a limit was imposed on the number of PCs I can access remotely for free. Looks like that is not enough, and Logmein has completely done away with the free service.

Free is always appreciated. However this is for personal use and I don’t need any of the pro features (although they are great in a real support environment). At this rate, I will probably have to say goodbye to the service by the end of the 6 months.
