Managed Service Accounts (MSA) in Windows Server 2012 R2 Active Directory

Is Powershell the best way to create and administer Managed Service Accounts (MSAs) in Win2K12 R2 Active Directory environments ?  Apparently the MSAs may be viewable in the AD Computers and Users MSC console but all of the attributes are not accessible or configurable from there.  Are there any other ways for newbies to the MSA framework to work with the MSAs through a GUI ?  And are there any other utilities that can assist with troubleshooting MSAs ? TIA ...
