Free ArcGIS Online Mobile Offline Editing App
December 5th, 2012 by Matt Sheehan
Mobile offline editing is something we have written much about. It is also the most common request we receive. We have had in our minds the idea to release a demo version of the application we have shown in many videos. So here we post that mobile app.
This downloadable release is for use on an Android tablet. The application can also be run on an iPad, contact us for more information. Before installing the mobile ArcGIS Online app, please watch the video below which shows the various workflows:
1) Copy the LocalGovtApp.xml file to the Download directory on your tablet. This can be done manually by connecting the tablet to you PC and unzipping the file in the link below. If viewing this page in your mobile browser, selecting the link below will place the zip in this folder, unzip it from there:
2) Install the application. Again the easiest way to do this is to view this page in your mobile browser and select the link below. This will place it in the Downloads directory, you can install it from here. Note on your tablet you may need to go to settings -> security -> and check unknown sources (allow installation of non-market apps).
Remember this is a demo application. We do welcome feedback any issues found. Our particular interest is your feedback on connected and disconnected ArcGIS Online functionality. Are there use cases you have which require this functionality?
**Please note this release is to demonstrate online and offline mobile editing of an ArcGIS Online web map. It is intended to give the Esri user community a window into the world of connected and disconnected editing with ArcGIS Online. If you install this application and have additional interest please contact us directly.
