Google has launched its Admin app for iOS, giving system admins using Apple's mobile devices running iOS the ability to perform actions on their organisation's Google Apps while on the move.
Google Admin was originally launched on Android in May, but the firm waited eight months to release the iOS version. The app allows administrators to perform a variety of tasks that were previously only available via the Google Apps web interface.
Functions include adding and managing users, resetting passwords, editing the contents of profiles and adding profile images. Admins will also be able to manage corporate groups, including adding and removing members and editing their roles.
They can also perform more advanced activities, including viewing each account's activity using the audit log, and viewing specific types of events with using filters.
The app is now available free on Apple's App Store. Organisations with Google Apps will have to enable API access in order for the app to work, and Google recommends enabling remote-wiping for devices in case they are lost or stolen. It also suggests that admins set up a secure lock-screen password for their device to prevent unauthorised access to the admin control panel.
Enabling the Apps API also opens up the opportunity for firms to use apps developed by external developers to manage their Google Apps accounts using the Admin software developer kit (SDK).
Currently only super administrators – which are able to access every area of a company's Google Apps account – can use the app.
