Hi all,

I am trying to develop an enterprise application which needs to list a set of enterprise applications along with the installation status.If the application is already installed on device user should have an option to uninstall that app,also the user should be able to install apps not present in device from the list.As no direct API's are available to do this in iphone SDK i am thinking to set up a Mobile Device Management server.But i found that MDM is commonly used to manage all the devices in enterprise network from a centralized location .I need to know whether it is possible to control the device based on some client request(Delete an app by clicking a delete button in the client).please share your thoughts, also let me know how could i get access to MDM API.My company already has an Enterprise developer account.

Thanks in advance

If the application is already installed on device user should have an option to uninstall that app,also the user should be able to install apps not present in device from the list.

You can do it with URL register scheme.

But you won't be able to get the list of all installed applications (if app has shared URL mechanism you can check if its installed or not - find it here)

smile , there is one more open source library which will give you installed apps on the device
Here is the link - http://amitay.us

Good Luck!!

Thanks
