You’re thousands of miles away from your home computer and you need to access a specific file. There are ample VNC (Virtual Network Computing) apps that let you connect to your computer with your iPhone or iPad, but what if you aren’t on the same network as your computer? Sure, advanced users could setup a VPN that allows you to remotely connect to your home network, but what about average users? How would you access your computer from anywhere in the world? With LogMeIn Ignition for iOS, you can do just that. Just log in with your LogMeIn account and it will handle everything. Within seconds, you will be connected to your home computer without having to setup a VPN, get an static external IP address, or use tools like DynDNS.
LogMeIn Ignition leverages their sophisticated remote software which connects two computers together without a VPN. We’re reviewed LogMeIn for Mac before on Mac.AppStorm and LogMeIn Ignition for iOS works just as seamlessly with an interface that’s easy to use on a touch screen.
LogMeIn for iOS allows me to remotely manage my home server and home computer from literally anywhere. I’m able to perform software updates, launch applications, and much more. It’s great when you need to find a specific file that you forgot to take with you.

Poor Microsoft. After Apple jumpstarted the PDA craze with the Newton, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile became one of the most used mobile operating systems on PDAs and then smartphones for the first part of the 21st century. Fast forward to 2007, though, and Apple once again got the upper hand with iPhone. Today, iOS is much more popular than Windows Mobile, and even the new Windows Phone 7 has struggled to gain marketshare.
Since Microsoft is primarily a software company (they even makes software for Mac OS X), it’s almost surprising that they’ve never made a mobile version of their popular Microsoft Office suite for competing mobile operating systems. That has now changed, as Microsoft has finally brought OneNote to the iPhone. OneNote is Microsoft’s often-overlooked notetaking app that’s included with Office 2010 for Windows, and now with OneNote for iPhone you can take your notes on the go just like you could with a Windows Phone 7 device. We’re going to take a tour of OneNote’s features and see if it’s time to switch notetaking apps.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Infomaps Metro Washington DC. The developer describes Infomaps Metro Washington DC as a clickable offline GPS Metro Map with realtime arrivals provided by WMATA. Several search options to find a station, including a convenient nearby listing. Frequent used stations or lines can be saved as a favorite.

Online backup is a popular business these days. Dropbox, Backblaze, Carbonite; the options go on and on. If you’re in the market for a backup solution, SpiderOak is a strong competitor with a simple pricing structure and great support for accessing your files on the go.
In May of last year, we reviewed the SpiderOak Mac client on Mac.AppStorm, today we’ll take a look at the accompanying iPhone app. We’ll start off by briefly explaining the service and then we’ll jump into the features found in the app.
This week Apple introduced an impressive new line of MacBook Pros. They threw in a curve this time though and not only released the standard jaw-dropping power and speed jumps, but also added a completely new I/O port for a technology called Thunderbolt.
Below we’ll take a brief look into what Thunderbolt is, where it came from and why it could mean great things for future iPhone, iPod and iPad owners.
If you’re like me, you take photos with your phone anywhere and everywhere. Whether it’s inspiration for a design, or I just want to remember a random moment with some friends, I seem to always be snapping pics and loading up my library with images. The artist in me is never satisfied with the image though. I want to tweak. I tend to think “This would look so much cooler if I (fill in the blank).”
With Adobe Photoshop Express I have the tools at my disposal to tinker to my heart’s content. Need a better crop? I can do that. Black and white? I can do that. In fact, I can do that and a lot more. So here’s a look at some of the killer features and a few of the limitations of the app.
Here at AppStorm we love getting to know our readers better. The primary reason for this is always so that we can better target our content towards the people reading it. We want to make AppStorm as interesting as possible for you so we post polls like today’s to get a better glimpse of who you are.
Today’s poll asks whether or not you’re interested in the development side of iPhone apps. We know you love playing with new iPhone apps, or else you wouldn’t be here, but we’d also like to know how many of our readers are part of the amazingly talented group of people generating all of that lovely App Store content that keeps us afloat!
Vote in the poll at right and then leave a comment below telling us more. If you’re a developer, what apps have you created and how did you learn the requisite skills? If you’re not a developer but are interested in learning more, you might want to check out our sister site MobileTuts for daily tutorials on every mobile platform out there!
