I am looking to deploy an app to an ipad cart and would like to configure the app settings prior to deployment so as not to have to set them on all ipads individually.  Is this possible with apple configurator or would I need an alternate MDM solution?

iPad 2, iOS 6.0.2

    you can restore a backup from apple configurator of the ipad which you've configured the app and backed up which will restore some app preferences, depending on the app

    you'll have to test it to see what works

    normally passwords are not copied

    you can also use itunes backup as well


    OSX server MDM, profile manager allows custom profiles

    which you maybe able to use to configure the app and push settings out to devices

    I can't remember if apple configurator allows for custom settings
