If you missed the news over xmas, like i did, then there's some great news for LogMeIn users.
They have now moved to a free model, so you can get the new LogMeIn app for Free on the App Store - LogMeIn

Article and link to press release on Engadget: LogMeIn remote desktop app goes free on iPhone and iPad -- Engadget
It's awesome on an iPad, but still very usable on an iPhone. Very sleek, with nice use of gestures, you can even handle multiple screens easily, which is a pain on a desktop.
Haven't quite got used to clicking, but it's very powerful.
The old app, ignition is still available and you can also go Pro for extra features, but for basic remote support, i think this is invaluable, especially on those nights, when you get that late night phone call asking for a password reset
I was contemplating going pro, as sometimes it's useful to get the advanced features like sound, or easily push files back and forth.
I bought Ignition for about £20 about 6 months ago and it's well worth the money. I also have purchased a pro account for my forest server, perfect for getting files from home to / from the servers.
I love the new app, got it a couple of weeks ago. The only problem is that we ae changing over to LGFL2 in the next few weeks and they are blocking logmein full stop! Ho-hum, good while it lasts.
Why no android?
I found this link, but not sure if it's official: LogMeIn Ignition Free Android App
I'm sure it's coming. I reckon they develop iDevice first as it's harder to code.
Hope that helps.
