Amazon Web Services Releases New Console App For Android

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has introduced a new Android app of the AWS Console for clients to access their accounts from tablets and smartphones.

The app lets users view and manage existing EC2 instances and CloudWatch alarms from an Android device. App users can view EC2 instance metrics and status checks, stop or reboot EC2 instances, list CloudWatch alarms by status, among other operations.

The app comes as Amazon has redesigned the AWS console. TechCrunch has more: “The new design, says Amazon, will offer more customization options and improve “information display on your screen of choice.” The new design now allows users to customize the Console navigation with shortcuts to the services they use most often (you can just drag and drop them into the menu bar), for example, and allows developers to easily select and compare the settings of different AWS resources.”
