Dreamhost mobile app to control your site


#1

I wondered if there were any dreamhost mobile apps to control at least a portion of one’s site from an iPhone? In Itunes, I noticed that there was an app described as for dreamhost, but it got pretty mediocre to poor reviews and it didn’t appear to be officially released by dreamhost.com

Thanks for any insights…

What functionality did you have in mind?

Hi there,

Are you looking for mobile apps to control the DH custom panel or a Wordpress site? We have not published a mobile app at this time, however there are a few out there such as http://www.dreamhostapp.com/ and we offer info on the tools and examples to other apps built on the API at the wiki link here http://wiki.dreamhost.com/API_Apps If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask us

Thanks!
Matt C

On a day-to-day basis, I suspect you’re more likely to need a tool to control your web site itself, rather than your hosting. If that’s the case and you’re using WordPress, you may want to give the WordPress iOS app a try: http://ios.wordpress.org/

Hi – thanks for the replies. What I had in mind was an app to control the c panel mostly. There’ve been times where it would’ve been a lot easier if I were on the road and had to make some modification or provide some support for e-mail accts or the like. I suppose it wouldn’t be a lot more difficult to use an computer to access the cpanel, but it would be kind of cool to be able to use an iphone or ipad to do some of the stuff since I appear to be the IT person around here (though that ain’t saying much!). I’ll check out those links. The dreamhost app (i.e. the 3rd party one referenced above) had pretty mixed reviews. I know reviews don’t necessarily mean something one way or another taken out of context, but I thought I’d post just to see if there were plans for an official dreamhost app or if there were apps available that others liked in particular. Perhaps, though, the usefulness of such an app is limited?

Can’t you just log in to the DH Panel on your iPhone or iPad ?

I recently published DH Bot on the App Store, which is used to control the Web Panel. Check it out and let me know your thoughts. It doesn’t cover the entire API, but I’m working on it.
