Amazon Web Services Launches A Console App For Android

Posted Jan 5, 2013

Amazon Web Services has announced a new Console App for Android devices.  The AWS Console App for Android is expected to be a “companion to the full web experience.”  The AWS Console App for Android lets you view and manage Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and CloudWatch alarms.

The app also lets you stop and reboot EC2 instances and organize CloudWatch alarms based on state or time.  The AWS Console App for Android also gives detailed AWS health status updates like AWS service events.  Amazon Web Services has made some tablet-based console improvements around optimization.

AWS users will be able to customize the console navigation and view stats and stacked graphs in a Monitoring View.  The console also supports endless scrolling on the current page.  The updates will rolled out across the customer base on different schedules.
