Configurator 1.1: Improved i-thing management
If you need to prepare, supervise and assign more than a few i-things — iPhone, iPod touch and iPad — then you need this app. Probably, not for a dad riding herd on a half-dozen devices, but definitely the app for anyone managing a lab, small company or enterprise.
Apple has released Configurator 1.1 comes to market with improved functionality for centrally managing i-things from your Mac:
• Improved reliability and ease of use when installing paid apps with Volume Purchase Program redemption codes
• A new preference to disable the automatic removal of apps or profiles installed by the user when a configuration is reapplied to a supervised device
• A new preference to disable reapplying a configuration each time a supervised device is connected to Apple Configurator
• The profile editor now indicates when a profile cannot be installed on a supervised device due to a missing value in a required field
Configurator requires a Mac running OS X 10.7.2 or later and is available exclusively via the Mac App Store. Supported languages are English, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
