The AWS Console Mobile Application, provided by Amazon Web Services, lets customers view and manage resources to support incident response while on-the-go.
The Console Mobile Application allows AWS customers to monitor resources through a dedicated dashboard and view configuration details, metrics, and alarms for select AWS services. The Dashboard provides permitted users with a single view of a resource's status, with real-time data on Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Personal Health Dashboard, and AWS Billing and Cost Management. Customers can view ongoing issues and follow through to the relevant CloudWatch alarm screen for a detailed view with graphs and configuration options. In addition, customers can check on the status of specific AWS services, view detailed resource screens, and perform select actions.
The Console Mobile Application requires an existing AWS account. Upon initial setup, the Console Mobile Application lets you stay signed in to multiple identities at once. Login process leverages biometrics authentication (on supported devices), making access to AWS resources a simple and quick.

Ratings and Reviews
Difficult to distinguish which account I’m in
Both in the profile/account picker and at the dashboard after logging in, there is only the account number to know which account I am in. Prior to this update I could easily determine this. I administer many account and there is no way that account # is going to do me good quickly identifying what account I’m working with. Please allow me to give each profile a nickname/alias that will show in the profile picker and is prominent while working in the app.
Opsworks says No Stacks Found
Opsworks says No Stacks Found even though I have stacks. I have tried changing the locations but nothing works even when I’m selecting the correct location which in ops works is global anyways so not sure what’s going on. maybe the global option was removed recently which doesn’t work with ops works so maybe it needs to be added back or defaulted to global when ops works is selected in the app.

Login Method Horrible
It wants you to do a captcha to “better protect your account” after enabling face login. And on top of that, you have to type your password because the face login will not fill in the password field on the captcha login. That’s great for simple passwords but when you have a 16 character randomized password that you don’t know because you used the built in password generator and have to go out of the app to get the password and then copy and paste it into the password field makes no sense whatsoever.
Fix your login option and may change review.
