I would argue that Android Device Manager is not quite as seamless or pretty as its iOS equivalent, but it is getting better. Google debuted the app form of ADM late last year, but for people without a second Android device, it was not of much use if their one device was ever lost or stolen. Today, the company has made Android Device Manager a little more practical with the addition of a guest mode.
Guest mode is exactly what it sounds like: it allows you to manage your devices from another person’s Android phone or tablet. Once you login to the ADM app, you can ring, lock, wipe, or find the location of your various gadgets. After you finish, a “Sign Out” button will remove your credentials from the device you used.
Guest mode seems to be the only major change in Android Device Manager 1.2, but we will keep looking for more.
