Android

Deploy apps remotely from Google Play to managed Android devices. Paid applications are also supported, but the device user(s) must purchase the application prior to installation. In order to be able to remotely install a store application, it must be available in Google Play, the user must be signed in to Google Play with his/her account, and accept the installation. The installations cannot be forced to a device nor can the applications be installed quietly in the background.

Another application type for Android devices is the Android Application Package (APK) download. Applications are installed by uploading the APK file to Miradore or by defining an URL where the APK is downloaded from.
