It would be great to be able to have a version of MySQL Workbench that works from a mobile phone/tablet to be able to connect to the database when out of the office.

I'm all for it. We need people to list here what they would like to see in such a mobile version. Some ideas:

- Model viewer (no editing).
- SQL Work, visual explain, simple form data editing.
- Status checks, user management, connection management

Hey everyone! I stumbled upon this bug report and I must say, it really resonates with me. As anybody who frequently works on the go, having the ability to connect to my MySQL database thru a mobile phone or tablet would be a game-changer. It's irritating when I'm away from the office and need to access and control my database, but I'm limited by the desktop-only model of MySQL Workbench.

To address this issue, I would suggest the developers reflect onconsideration on adding a mobile/tablet version of MySQL Workbench. This would allow customers like us to stay connected and productive even when we're not at our desks. I agree with it would greatly enhance the flexibility and convenience of working with MySQL databases.

Let's hope the developers take notice of our needs and work towards providing a answer that caters to the demands of the modern, mobile workforce. Cheers!

That's what we plan with our new tool MySQL Shell for VS Code (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Oracle.mysql-shell-for-vs-code). Currently it embeds a web page on a tab in VS Code, but is designed to run also in a browser. Though it will take a while yet to make it ready especially for mobile browsers.
