Unofficial Google AdWords Management iPhone App

A few weeks ago, the Apple App store for the iPhone gained its first app to manage Google AdWords campaigns. The app was developed by and enables AdWords advertiser to manage their campaigns on the go. The application can be downloaded in the iTunes store for $16.99 and is named "PPC Editor." If you like to buy it, here is a link which passes through my affiliate account.

This is not an app created by Google. This app uses Google's API to pull data from your AdWords campaign and it was created by a third-party. In my opinion, Google is working on a mobile AdWords interface that will run over the iPhone, Android, Pre, etc but not be application specific. I.e. I think it will be a web based mobile version, to run off the smart phone's web browser.

It seems like the bulk of the features are reporting, but there is management features like changing daily budgets. Here are some of the screen captures from the iTunes store:

It really puzzles me that there are no AdWords iPhone apps. I think a good such app would be a real hit. Any developers listening? As far as "PPC Editor" is concerned it seems promising but, "Please note you need specify your Google AdWords Developer Token to access your campaigns, without this token, the application will be limited to a demonstration mode." :-( I bought it -through your link- anyway! :-)

I wish Google would put out an official app. I am kind of wary about putting any log in info into a 3rd party tool.

Can anyone shed some light on what the Google Adwords Developer Token is and if I will be able to use this app for an MCC account?

What about for the iPad? Does anyone access their AdWords account through iPad? Is it worth getting an iPad for those purposes. Any feedback is appreciated!
