ESRI just published the Top 10.1 Takeaways from the Esri Developer Summit. We have a particular interest in offline mobile ArcGIS app development. Solutions remain less than ideal, particularly for offline editing and data syncing. One of the ESRI take homes caught our attention:
Emerging Trend toward Native Mobile App Development
There’s a new paradigm in native application development, resulting in the implementation of focused apps that work in connected and/or completely disconnected environments. These applications are built to exploit devices running both mobile and desktop operating systems and can access components of the device as well as the system itself. Their native architecture allows apps to integrate and use external devices such as laser range finders, GPS components, and memory cards. The ArcGIS Runtime powers native app development and delivers technology to these platforms through native software development kits (SDKs).
Have you implemented a offline mobile ArcGIS solution we can highlight, or is offline ArcGIS a current need in your organisation? Let us know
