vSphere Mobile Watchlist enables secure vSphere infrastructure monitoring and remediation directly from your smartphone. With Watchlist, VMware administrators will be able to log in to a vCenter Server or ESXi host directly and choose virtual machines and hosts from inventory to create targeted views of objects and their properties. Remediate directly from the device with power and management operations, VM console interaction, and delegation of tasks to onsite colleagues with linked relevant Knowledge Base (KB) articles.
vSphere Mobile Watchlist brings the following key capabilities to vSphere administrators on the go:
EASILY CREATE WATCHLISTS: Search for and select a subset of VMs and hosts from your VMware vCenter Server and/or ESXi inventory to monitor in one or multiple watchlists.
VMs and HOSTS AT A GLANCE: Review the status of selected Watchlist VMs and hosts from your device including state, configuration details, resource usage, performance charts, health alerts, tasks and events, interact with the VM console and browse related objects.
DISCOVER: Alerts are linked to pertinent diagnostic information from the VMware Knowledge Base, as well as articles from the Web.
REMEDIATE REMOTELY: Remediate problems directly from the device using simple CPU/Memory configuration and snapshot management or by powering on/off, resuming/suspending, connecting/disconnecting, or restarting VMs and/or hosts — or for situations where on-site remediation is required, share alert(s) along with recommended solutions in an email to team members back at the datacenter.
vSphere Mobile Watchlist is compatible with iOS 7 & iOS 8.
NOTE: A VMware vSphere installation (5.0 and above) is required to use VMware vSphere Mobile Watchlist. Access to vSphere infrastructure may require a secure access method such as VPN on a mobile device. Contact your IT department for further assistance.

Ratings and Reviews
Used to Work!
VMware needs to crap or get off the pot with the vSphere iPhone Administration features! You would think by 2017 we would have vCenter mobile app to connect to our vSphere Standard Clusters at the very least. This thing here no longer works as they never supported it and there’s nothing to replace it from what I can find. All the html5 stuff isn’t far enough along to have the mobile browser workable enough to use through a VPN. Am I missing something in the App Store that everyone else knows about? I have a couple of clusters of servers with more being added so this would be nice to keep an eye on things remotely without breaking out a laptop at every turn.
VMWare - Do This Better!
Not a complete waste of an app for Administrators, but it's close. As previously stated: lots of UI text formatting issues, limited stability, failing console interaction. "Watchlist" philosophy isn't the greatest structure I think for management. I can't think of a time I "only" want to view a particular host or vm... And in any case, this should be a simple filtering option, not a design to implement the entire layout of the app around.
Otherwise it's capable of providing a very limited subset of features and status info. Please improve this app!!
Text not optimized (maybe not optimized for iOS 9)
I like this app for simple monitoring of VMware hosts and VMs, I don't recommend opening up ESXi to the Internet for any purpose, however it will work over a wireless or VPN connection, which is how I use it. Only problem I have, is that since I upgraded my phone to the iPhone 6s Plus, the text is all mushed together in some of the menus, which makes it illegible. Otherwise it works well for basic and monitoring tasks.
