Android application management

With Android application management, you can remotely install applications from Google Play to managed Android devices. Paid applications are also supported, but the device user(s) must purchase the application prior to installation. In order to be able to remotely install a store application, it must be available in Google Play, the user must be signed in to Google Play with his/her account, and accept the installation. The installations cannot be forced to a device nor can the applications be installed quietly in the background.

Another application type for Android devices is the Android Application Package (APK) download. Applications are installed by uploading the APK file to Miradore Online or by defining an URL where the APK is downloaded from.

See more about Android application management in How to install applications to Android devices.

 

iOS application management

With iOS application management, you can remotely install applications from the Apple App Store to managed iOS devices. In order to be able to remotely install a store application, it must be available in the App Store and the user must sign in with his/her account and accept the installation. For supervised iOS devices, applications can be forced and installed quietly in the background when user is logged in. Paid applications are not currently supported.

Another application type for iOS devices is in-house applications that can be used to install custom or private applications to managed iOS devices. In-house applications are installed by providing and defining an HTTPS link to the application manifest file or by uploading the application package to Miradore Online. There is no need for an App Store login but the user must accept the installation. For supervised iOS devices applications can be forced and installed quietly in the background without user interaction. Note that developing and deploying in-house applications require the iOS Developer Enterprise Program.
