Microsoft releases an Azure app for iOS and Android

During the day one keynote for Microsoft's Build 2017 developer conference, the company announced that it's releasing an Azure mobile application. While it's available today, the version number is 0.3.x, so it's still a beta, despite not being specifically labeled as one.

Here are the features that are listed in the Google Play Store:

  • 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

But as you can see from the image above, the app also comes with the Bash command shell, which was also announced today along with PowerShell on Azure. Presumably, once PowerShell is actually available, it will make its way to the mobile app as well.

The app is currently available on Android and iOS; however, Microsoft says that it's working on a UWP version:

Presumably, the UWP app will run on Windows 10 Mobile, but Microsoft hasn't specified a timeframe for when it will be released.
