How about instead of a free trial, you just make it a reasonable all-the-time price. $30? Are you kidding?!?!?!
A Trial = BLOATWARE . . . If I want it i'll just download it. If its not a full version don't put it on the device!
It's ridiculous how much I'd like to use this app and it's equally ridiculuous how disgusted I am by its price. Considering there's free alternatives in the Market, I don't know what LogMeIn are getting at.
I've used all of the main ones. SplashTop, Remote Desktop Client, and LogMeIn. The best one by far out of those three is Remote Desktop Client. It is a bit expensive at $24.95, but well worth it. LogMeIn has a very annoying interface.
I have to agree with others... I absolutely HATE bloatware and those disguised as "free trial offers" that you cannot delete from the OS are the biggest pain in rear! If I wanted the darn thing, I'd buy it... but no way am I shelling out $24.95 for ANY app unless it can wash my car, walk my dog, make my coffee, and tuck me in at night! I work for a major hardware manufacturer, and I understand prices are subsidized by additions to software... but c'mon developers... stop dangling carrots in front of my face and then tell me I can have the first bite for free, but then have to buy the whole cart-load of them, even if I only want another nibble from time to time....
LogmeInIgnition is a quality remote support tool. Other options are RHUB, Bomgar, GoSupportNow, GoToMyPC etc.
