Guidebook today announced Mobile Admin, the industry’s first solution for updating native iOS and Android applications directly from tablets and cell phones. No longer do app administrators need to return to their PCs to keep users up to date. With Mobile Admin, they can react on the fly and make common adjustments, like sending announcements and making schedule changes, right from their mobile devices. Mobile Admin is available exclusively to users of Guidebook’s app builder, a simple yet powerful tool that can create mobile applications for a variety of uses in companies and educational institutions including tradeshows, meetings, orientations, onboardings, interactive campus tours and much more.

“If you’re an event organizer, we know two things are certain. First, things constantly change. Second, you’re always on the go. Mobile Admin addresses both those issues, allowing people to keep their users informed and up to date directly from their mobile devices,” said Jeff Lewis, Co-founder and CEO of Guidebook. “Organizations of all types have been asking for this capability. Guidebook is the first to bring this capability to administrators and become truly mobile.”

How It Works

Mobile Admin presents an easy way to change schedules and send push notifications. Upon logging into your Guidebook app, administrators will automatically see the special icon for Mobile Admin. Click it, and you’ll be presented with the option to:

  • Send important updates to your attendees instantly with push notifications
  • Edit the schedule when unavoidable changes arise

Administrators will also have the option to quickly search support questions or contact Guidebook’s award-winning support team should they need help.

Pricing and Availability

Mobile Admin is available immediately to all Guidebook app administrators across all paid plans: Plus, Premium and Branded. For more information on Guidebook pricing visit
