Updated ESRI Mobile Applications

Further to my initial Mobile Trends Post, when I discussed mobile support for other OS's there are 2 significant Mobile offerings to come out of the recent conference.

Apple iOS

At this point ESRI have confirmed that support for Apple products is going to be through Apple iOS, and iOS supported devices (iPhone, iPad, etc).

To this end ESRI have already released there second iOS application. This is for Business Analyst and is the BAO for iOS App.
I'm sure we can expect to see more and more of these Apps springing up over time. These Apps are focused applications driven behind the scenes by Data sourced from ArcGIS Online, and utilising the Services offered by ArcGIS Server.

ArcGIS Mobile

There have been 2 significant changes to ArcGIS Mobile:

  1. A template application is now provided for both Windows 32 and Windows Mobile platforms.
  2. A single license of ArcGIS Mobile (Template Application and SDK) is bundled with each ArcGIS Desktop Product (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo). Additional bundles of 5 licenses can be purchased.

The core of our business is Field Data Capture and Mobile, and hence we would be more than happy to sit down and review your requirements and discuss these and a range of other options with you.
