Free AppStore and Enterprise App Push by SimpleMDM

No votes yet

Hey all!

We just wanted to let you know about a few new updates that we have made to SimpleMDM, a free iOS-only Mobile Device Management solution. SimpleMDM is designed to allow you to quickly and easily configure iOS devices with essential configurations such as WiFi and Email, and now, push Apps!

To learn about all of the capabilities of SimpleMDM, please visit http://www.simplemdm.com.

This update allows a SimpleMDM administrator to:

  • Select iTunes AppStore apps to be pushed to managed devices
  • Over-the-air deploy In-house Enterprise iOS apps, with automatic provisioning profile update handling
  • Effectively manage deployment of apps by groups of devices

Read more about how it works here: SimpleMDM App Deployment

The feature is free addition to SimpleMDM, and you can have an account set up and configured in minutes.

Note that paid AppStore apps (via VPP) are not yet supported, though the feature is road-mapped (let us know if this would be a valuable addition to your organization).

We hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments below.

Best,
Matt Vlasach

Enterprise App Distribution

Your rating: None

David:

It sure does! You simply upload the .ipa file and the app and provisioning profile is delivered automatically over the air.

This also works for AdHoc distribution if you are developing in app. This is particularly useful if you have a couple of devices that you are using for testing and you want to push an update to them.

Best,
Matt

VPP would be great but

Your rating: None

it would be also great to be able to load a file like csv or smth like that with redeem codes entered manually to deploy apps for countries like Ukraine or Russia where VPP is not yet available and there's no simple way to do that. you would become really popular on those markets.

Is it possible to push an app to an invividual device instead of a group?

Individual App Push

Your rating: None

@Chadgainor: No, individual app assignments is not possible. You will have to create a dedicated group for that device and match all of the other settings. We did this because we figured the number of individual devices that needed this sort of capability would be relatively rare in comparison to managing a device more holistically with settings and along side other devices.

Unable to Assign Email Providers

Your rating: None

Hi Matt,

In Settings, have added a GMAIL IMAP Email Provider.
Strangely, I am unable to assign a email provider to the device like what can be done through Assigning Apps and Assigning Wireless Networks.
Is there something that i missed?

thanks,

Email provider help for EC

Your rating: None

EC,

Email providers are assigned differently than Apps and Wireless Networks. To assign an email address to a particular device, click the "# accounts" link that appears in the "email" column of the device listings. From here, you'll be able to select the email provider. You can also enter in additional account information, such as the username and password of the email account, if desired.

If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us through our support system. We don't always track this forum, and I'd hate to leave you hanging.
