For those who want to tinker with the controls for their applications running on the Amazon Web Services Beanstalk service while on the go, today is a good day. Amazon is adding support for the cloud platform to its AWS Console app for iOS, Android, and, of course, Kindle.

Users can get a quick indicator of the health of their apps running on Elastic Beanstalk in the updated version of the app, according to a blog post on the news today from Amazon cloud chief evangelist Jeff Barr. People can also restart application servers, restore previous versions of applications, and terminate environments associated with their applications.

Amazon has a lead to maintain in the public cloud market. Adding capabilities for mobile management of applications in its cloud is only reasonable in an age when companies make decisions about when to deploy and change applications — and deal with issues — around the clock. Just don’t act surprised if major Amazon Web Services competitors like Google and Microsoft start making announcements in the next few months about their own capabilities for managing cloud infrastructure on a smartphone or tablet. They’ve been dropping prices and adding features on a tear right alongside Amazon.

The AWS Console app already supports EC2, S3, DynamoDB, RDS, and other Amazon services.
