How can we improve the Azure mobile app?

Create and resize VMs

Please create a mobile app to manage Azure objects even with limited functionality such as creating a VM, starting/stopping/rebooting a VM, re-sizing of VM and check service status of backups and other jobs.

    We can add support for creating VMs, if that’s a big need. When do you find yourself needing to create a VM when away from a computer? That’ll help us make sure we optimize the experience for the specific cases.

        No need to create me vms for me either, but I would find it really useful if I could resize vms from the app

        As a developer/architect, not every Azure resource I create is static, on all the time. In fact, I am more likely to be spinning things up and down to validate designs then script out the creates than I am to set up anything with non-ephemeral state.

        VM size change facility should be available in app. It will be useful easily change it to lower config in off hrs.

        I have no scenarios for having to create a VM from scratch, but definitely resize a VM is a key one when a VM gets stuck on restarting or any similar scenarios, also when you want to scale up which is something relatively common on peak hours when you are not in the office in front of a computer.
