Access and Edit Esri Maps on Kindle Fire

ArcGIS for Android Now Available at Amazon Appstore? for Android

REDLANDS, Calif., April 10, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Esri users can now access ArcGIS data and mapping capabilities on Amazon's popular Android tablet, Kindle Fire. ArcGIS for Android, also available on iOS devices, Windows Phones, and other Android devices, lets users access, edit, and share maps. The free app can be downloaded directly from the Amazon Appstore for Android.



ArcGIS for Android is a native application that serves as a mobile gateway into the ArcGIS system. It provides an intuitive user experience for querying map layers and data. With it, users can quickly access their own maps and data authored in ArcGIS Online as well as collect and edit geographic data. ArcGIS for Android includes a Favorites feature that accesses popular maps quickly; a tool for measuring area and distance; and the ability to display data in popups that support images, charts, links, and more.



ArcGIS for Android is built on Esri's ArcGIS Runtime Software Development Kit (SDK). This SDK lets developers create custom spatially enabled applications for Kindle Fire and other Android devices and is designed to use web services available from ArcGIS Online. Apps built using the SDK can be deployed within the enterprise or to the public via the Amazon Appstore for Android and Google Play.


To download the ArcGIS app, visit the Amazon Appstore for Android or directly from your Kindle Fire.
