TapNova doesn't recommend this version of the app.   
New in version 1.19.3

This update fixes several issues and improves app stability.

Description

The AWS Console mobile app, provided by Amazon Web Services, lets you view resources for select services. The app also supports a limited set of management functions for select resource types, so you can use the app to support incident response while you're on the go.

EC2, S3, Route 53, ELB, RDS, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, CloudFormation, DynamoDB, Auto Scaling, and AWS OpsWorks customers can use the app to browse resources and view configuration details, metrics, and alarms. Management functionality is supported for EC2, RDS, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, DynamoDB, Auto Scaling, and AWS OpsWorks. Service Health Dashboard notifications provide real-time information on service availability, and users with billing and CloudWatch permissions can monitor total estimated service charges.

The AWS Console mobile app requires an existing AWS account. Simply create an identity using your account credentials and select your region in the menu. The app lets you stay signed in to multiple identities at once. Note that if you sign in with an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user account, you need to use the account alias that was included in the email address from your administrator. If you use AWS Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), we recommend using either a hardware MFA device or a virtual MFA on a separate mobile device for the greatest level of account protection.

We regularly release updates with new features. Tell us what features you need and how you would use them with the Feedback link in the app's menu. We're listening!

What's the point?

Can't even restart or shut down EC2 servers. Can't do much of anything. Google Cloud iOS app blows this away.
Eh
Mikesixtysix on 5/10/2017
It doesn't see my ELBs even though they exist.
Getting better.

Desperately needs keychain and Touch ID support.
Does not work over dialup
AngryAngry on 3/27/2017
Many customers of AWS, especially those of us that live near Amazon.com's new headquarters in SLU don't have faster connections. My dialup doesn't work at all with this app.
Come on!
scuba323 on 2/19/2017
I can't even add an IP when I want to allow all traffic or SSH traffic. It says this is disabled in this version of the app. Please update. But there is no update pending! 😡
Great start then they fixed what didn't need fixing
Lipschnitz on 1/25/2017
I think it was a few months ago the interface and the buttons were much more intuitive now you have to have a graduate degree in quantum physics and PhD's in computer science just understand what you're looking at. For all of you geniuses at Amazon and I say that literally, you guys are amazingly smart you forget how smart you are and how much you know you've also forgotten about how much we (your customer) don't know. We need a simple on boarding program but you refuse to give it to us...? Again with a big why? Aws limits me so because we can't understand what your program does we use a different company. Aws... it's so amazingly complicated With lots of cool options but it also prevents me from using the very thing that I want to. So take your PhD's and all your fancy-schmancy smartness and put them aside, make it simple for the novice to use and we would use a ton of it until then I can't use your stuff it's way too complicated.
Terrible
Matrixfox on 1/15/2017
It doesn't show services. It's missing my load balancers. Meaning it's not showing my load balancer on this application. I have to load their website on a computer in order to see my load balancers. I'm on the same region! If I don't see it, I don't pay for it! That's the rule
Good start
CloudMario on 1/7/2017
MFA can be replaced by touch ID? Documentation links, videos, upcoming events, updates can help
Stuck in the past
DiLoreto on 1/5/2017
For as much money that Amazon makes on AWS, you would think their app would be top notch. In fact, it's quite the opposite. You have very little control of your account from this app, only allowing admins to monitor what is running but cannot add/edit. The graphs are limited, and UI is about 10 years old. There are better (paid) apps that I would suggest considering given Amazon's apathy for their own.
Fabulous (plus support for Canada, eh)
EDM24/7 on 12/9/2016
Great app, and I really appreciate the regular updates containing not just bug fixes but useful enhancements too. Keep it up, AWS!
Very good app
Neojdjeir on 10/28/2016
Great app - not sure if it is working on my 7 plus though
Good
WhatNowHuh on 10/25/2016
Thanks for the app. Come on people leave some reviews so the devs know it's being used.
Terrible and Useless
Craig S from SF on 10/2/2016
I've never deleted an app so fast after installing it. It's 100% useless and the product manager who created it should be fired. You can't take any actions through the app. Just use the website instead. Really disappointed that such a large company could produce such an incompetent app.
What is the point?
Giophotos on 8/6/2016
This app. is so limited. Unable to set/change S3 obj. permissions. I have a bucket/obj with public permissions which I can grab the link from another app., and can share with others. Amazon app. is reading the wrong permissions, and only offers time stamped links. I simply wish it could do more.
Poor implementation
diss3ntive on 6/8/2016
If I could rule the world one datacenter at a time, I'd be sure to hire a team that actually thinks about how users would use it. This app doesn't even allow you to view logs or metrics, let alone more the more popular services they released. They should sincerely consider dedicating more time to this app.
Getting Better
yyyguy on 6/3/2016
Keeps me alive when I'm away from the office.
Not really that useful
faa- on 3/18/2016
It's nice that they have an app but this version is very basic. It gives you an overview of your account but not much else. The app it's self is also fairly crude, it's basically a stripped down mobile version of their website and not a native application. It would be great if they added notification support. It would be really helpful to subscribe to push notifications for cloud watch alarms as well as other events such as ec2 launches. It would also be great if they started to include more AWS functionally such as the ability to create ec2 instances and take snapshots of existing ones. I know the mobile form factor is not idea for many AWS tasks but I believe there are some basic console functions missing from this app.
Looks solid
AnupWarrier on 2/25/2016
Pretty neat app!
Keeps getting better
Hibbt on 1/27/2016
Thanks for adding 1password support. Makes it much easier to get in and get my work done.
AWS in your hands!
Am4tureReviewer on 1/11/2016
This is a great app which allows you monitor your infrastructure and do "some" useful actions like restarting a server, deploying and etc. hopefully the allowed actions will increase over time. Highly recommended to anyone with an AWS account. Good job AWS mobile team. Thanks
Another product rushed to market without review
RhondaMay1212 on 1/1/2016
Too many bugs. The first bug is the name of the app. Amazon (mistakenly?) named their bff.release.
Latest update has issues
pushingthecharacterlimit on 12/28/2015
First, let me say that I'm impressed they quickly addressed the previous issues with the app. Great response. However, it seems the intended behaviour is to hide the status bar. This is annoying when you need to track the time, signal, or most importantly for me: VPN connectivity. Can't imagine why anyone would want to run this app "full screen". Could this at least be a toggle? Otherwise, an outstanding app.
Cannot use with VoiceOver
Caringblinduser on 12/28/2015
VoiceOver only speaks "web biew." Nothing else is accessible with VoiceOver
Couple of bugs
joed987 on 12/22/2015
- Title is BFF.release (is Best Friends Forever the project code name?) - iOS Status Bar disappears with app open.
Malformed app title
majorgearhead on 12/21/2015
Okay functionality. But with the latest update the app title is not right. You guys may want to fix this.
Great that 1Password support was added
N328KF on 12/21/2015
It's great that 1Password support was added. However, this version seems to have an unrelated issue. When logging into a root account using MFA, the code is not accepted. Same credentials work using a web browser or other means.
App name
IsletDeveloper on 12/21/2015
Why is it called "BFF.release"?
Really 1Password support only??? Add Lastpass support!!!
elite192 on 12/20/2015
Really 1Password support only??? Add Lastpass support!!!
Login Nightmare Makes It Unusable
Spicymeatball12 on 10/31/2015
App requires you to login each and every time it's opened, which is absurd when you use a truly secure password and two factor authentication. Why Amazon didn't enable pin or touch login is beyond me.

Melissa Jericka on 10/29/2015
I tried adding this to another device (iPod touch or iPod 4) one of those..., and I guess I need to update this first. So I'll look into that, then see if I can download it here. You guys are awesome! Great work! =)
Good App, Need More Features
DaOldYeller on 10/9/2015
I have found it to be useful. Need the ability to delete all resource types, especially RDS instances
Easy to use
Violin_Player on 8/24/2015
I'm currently using it only for personal use and my needs are very modest so I don't have to edit much like the other two reviewers mentioned - if I did I'd probably do that from my computer since that's where I'd upload files from, so for me it's a non-issue. App specifics: There is a high degree of granularity so that I can quickly pull up an asset I have in a bucket and see it in the browser. You can easily login as any of the users you have set up which made me feel reassured that someone was thinking this through on the other end. I really like that the billing is so easy to get to so I can monitor it. This is so easy to use I'm now in the process of moving my work away from other (read yucky) companies to AWS. This app is light years beyond what some other major hosting companies have achieved. That I can check my buckets, instances, etc. in one hand with my toddler running around my feet is a huge plus for me. Right now it's plenty for my small projects but since I also have an enterprise account for work I'll probably give that a try at some point, too. The layout is really nice and intuitive. In terms of design, it is nicely in keeping with the website. The designers and developers did a great job of bringing the robustness of AWS to an app. It's yet another experience that has won me over to AWS. I dig it.
Cannot edit Route 53 entries
TNGFan1 on 6/26/2015
Please add this feature
Love the app but....
SmithAtlanta on 5/28/2015
I really need the ability to view SQS queues. Once that's in there, I'll give you 5 stars.
Not even close
xenophonf on 4/2/2015
I was expecting something closer in fidelity to the desktop browser experience, but this app does nothing more than list existing resources. I want feature-complete management tool, not a (very basic) stats page.
Thank you!!
aZn137 on 3/12/2015
This is a great app, and I really like all of the features that have been added so far. I'd only wish for it to not prompt me for the password each time I log in. Maybe you can enable the fingerprint scan or an in-app passcode lock?
Doesn't let you edit meta data or anything for S3 bucket items.
teewuane on 1/16/2015
I really was hoping I could at least edit meta data or change permissions on items in my buckets but you can only view details on the files. The apps UI is better than the website though except that you can't change any file properties or anything.
Cannot even get past the splash screen
Sweeh on 1/2/2015
Installed this on my iPodTouch 5 running iOS7. Unfortunately, the app could not proceed beyond the splash screen. Totally useless.
Glad they made this
Max Cabral on 11/26/2014
The interface in the App is way better than the Web UI. I'd give it 5 stars if SQS management was supported.
Great start
ClubA4 on 11/14/2014
The app is a great start, but I'd like the ability to create instances and control other services from my iPad and iPhone.
Ok for viewing. Can't change much.
Automaton111 on 9/20/2014
Wish it could change more such as adding and removing instances from elastic load balancers.
Crazy handy
c-neal on 7/24/2014
Works as expected and the AWS folks are always adding new features. Thx much!
Can't edit s3 objects
robivore on 6/24/2014
It would be great if you could "open in..." on s3 files (the only reason I downloaded this app actually). Aside from not being able to do that, this app works as advertised.
Helpful app
Atoyf on 6/24/2014
Often I find myself on the road with only my phone. This app has helped me a lot with little things such as variously manipulating an instance. Fast and convenient.
It rejects a valid key pair
PhilipLV on 6/6/2014
Unusable. It rejects a valid key pair.
Getting there
R2ick on 5/30/2014
It's gone from 1 star to 2 with the addition to store keys and not have to retype a password every couple of minutes (to me it wasn't even useable before). However, I really want this to be a console I can use for more than a quick look/reboot so here's some requests in order of desire: 1-AMIs! Let me not only instantiate an Instance from an AMI but also cross-region copy them. 2-Cloud Formation! Even if I have to copy the raw json to an entry field I'll take it. 3-Let me edit some fields in the EC2 console!
They need to get serious about security usability
acdha on 5/12/2014
The app is fairly good - reasonable features, decent reporting - but I never use it because it doesn't store login credentials, meaning I have to enter a strong password and MFA token every single time. Good security practice would use a durable login token for read-only operations and only require strong authentication for disruptive operations or anything which would incur new charges.
Getting better
ahwm23 on 5/1/2014
While minimalistic, it is improving and getting better. The initial support for viewing Route 53 is a good start but I'd like to create/edit/delete zones and records. An option to remember credentials would be nice (maybe require pass code lock on the phone to enable the option).
Thank You!
Jim Hankins on 3/23/2014
Very handy to have quick access to info and the ability to act on them while on the road. Appreciate the iPhone usability and the native iPad support. Bravo
Plenty of functionality
PN Stein on 3/1/2014
The only reason for the imperfect score is a lack of in app documentation explaining present functionality. I enjoy exploring toy apps, but this is a tool for a serious service, so it warrant a 'readme.'
