During the day one keynote at Microsoft’s Build 2017 conference, Microsoft announced that they will be releasing an Azure mobile application. And it’s currently available on both iOS and Android. Microsoft also mentioned that they are also working on a UWP version that works on Windows 10 mobile, but no timeframe at the moment.
The version that is available is 0.3.4, indicating that this may still be a beta for the public. The features included in this version on both iOS and Android include:
- Stay connected to the cloud and check status and critical metrics anytime, anywhere
- Stay informed with notifications and alerts about important health issues
- Stay in control of your resources and take corrective actions, like starting and stopping VMs and web apps
After downloaded and installed on my iPhone, I found it’s a rather simple app that doesn’t offer a lot function wise. However, since it’s designed to help you keep track of resources on-the-go, it does include some essential features that will benefit me for my daily work, like checking metrics of the VM and powering on or off any VMs you have set up in your Azure account.
