LogMeIn makes software that lets you control Windows and Mac computers remotely from any computer with a web browser. The company also offers an iPhone client that lets you log into your PC from a phone, and now LogMeIn is working on an Android app that works much the same way.

LogMeIn Ignition for Android is still in beta testing, but the company showed it off at Mobile World Congress last month. You can check out the video after the break.

The app lets you log onto any computer that has the LogMeIn software installed, assuming you have the login information. LogMeIn Ignition shows you an image of your remote desktop on your mobile device and lets you interact with it using an on-screen keyboard or mouse.

LogMeIn offers free and Pro accounts. Both let you take control of a remote desktop. But the Pro version allows file transfer, sound, and a few other features. The mobile LogMeIn Ignition apps for iPhone and Android can work with either LogMeIn Free or Pro, but the LogMeIn iPhone app costs $29.99. It’s likely that the Android version will have a similar price tag.

You can sign up to receive more information about LogMeIn Ignition for Android, including beta testing updates at the LogMeIn web site.
