    Question Syncing and managing Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 in education

    Hi All,

    Hope this is the best place to ask this but I'd appreciate a bit of advice. I am a teacher and we have just bought 15 SG Tab 2 10.1 for my class running 4.1.1.
    It is a right pain downloading an app every time I want to use one and I am either having to ask the children to download the app to each tab individually or go into play store on PC where I can select each tab individually and send the app. Neither of these are ideal and I'm looking for a way of managing and sending an app to all the tabs in one go.

    This seems to work with iOS as when I download an app or take a pic on my iphone it appears instantly on my ipad via iCloud so there must be a way of doing this but I'm a bit stuck :/ any thoughts would be hugely appreciated!
    Thanks

    are you using same account for all the 15 devices?? if yes, then you can install and delete apps from the play store management page

    https://play.google.com/apps Here, you will see all the devices associated with your account and then send the app to the devices.

    or if its not same account you can use device Administration. I am not sure how that work but its an option.

    here is the app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rprise.dmagent


    description from app:
    Google Apps Device Policy is a device administration app for Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government accounts that makes your Android device more secure for enterprise use. This app allows your IT administrator to enforce security policies and remotely wipe your device. Additionally, this app allows you to ring, lock, or locate your Android devices through the My Devices page: https://www.google.com/apps/mydevices.

    Or you can save the app as an apk file (Astro File Manager will do that), put it in the cloud, then your students can download it and install it with apk installer.

    wouldnt posting playstore link on the cloud better than saving apk where students click on the link and it takes directly to play store for installation.

    installing apk get too messy with 15+ tablets. updating would be even difficult
