CovertApps rolled out Joomla! Admin Mobile (JAM!) for Android and also updated its iPhone app.

The JAM! app, which is compatible with Joomla! 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7, lets users manage their Joomla! sites from their handheld devices. With the app, site admins can edit, delete, view and create content remotely. The Android app is available in the Android Market.

App Features

In addition to managing Joomla! site articles, the full version of the JAM! release lets users create, edit and delete sections, menus and categories on sites and also manage user privileges. On the free, "lite" version, users will see ads, but the full versions, which cost US$ 9.99, are ad-free.


Demo videos of the app are on the CovertApps site. A free Joomla! Admin Mobile component must be downloaded to enable the remote admin feature. CovertApps Co-Founder Will Mavis says that user-requested features will be added to both the iPhone and Android versions of the admin app.


In addition to the practical Joomla! admin app, CovertApps has a couple of other apps. The Allergy Guard helps users with food allergies determine whether food is safe for them to eat and the company also has a self-explanatory iWhoopie Cushion app.
