Allow only some applications: the "desktop" My Apps

The "My Apps" wallpaper is customizable to fit the corporate identity.
"My Apps" provides the ability to hide items:
- Hiding Apps or folders is useful for allowing a utility program without exposing it in My Apps.
- Example: Pdf reader or Apps to open docs ...
- These utility programs can be grouped into a folder. Folders can also be hidden.

Download files and applications automatically
- Automatic download of files with source and destination definition: by defining a source (a URL), the file is automatically downloaded and stored in the desired destination (storage directory on the Android device: Documents, Download, DCIM, VIDEO...).
- Download and install applications: Automatic application downloading can be done from Google Play or from other sources. If the download source is not specified, NetAddictMobile will check on Google Play and launch the installation. If a source is specified (a URL), the installation package will be downloaded and the installation will start automatically.
- The automatic download is activated in the "Device Settings" of NetAddictMobile. If it is not activated automatically, manual launch is possible.
- The user can access the MDM from his device to find out which files and apps are installed and which ones to download.
Manage the fleet with a centralized administration console
- NetAddictMobile can be configured directly on the device or from the remote administration.
- Generally, a typical profile is created centrally. This standard profile has all the restrictions, authorizations and adjustments to be applied to the mobile fleet.
- Ability to create multiple template profiles (one per company function, for example)
- When the software is installed on the Android device, the profile is imported to the device.
Update: maintenance of the settings is done on the standard profile from remote administration. The devices automatically synchronize with the settings defined in the administration console.
The administration console receives technical information about each device: software version, Android version, free memory, installed apps ...

- the position of all the devices in the fleet.
