Custom cross platform ArcGIS mobile application are relatively new, but offer exciting possibilities. Using one application and running it on Apple, Android and Blackberry devices. ESRI have released their own ArcGIS mobile app which allows access to ArcGISOnline. We have been investigating custom ArcGIS mobile solutions which allow users to access existing ArcGIS layers not currently within ArcGISOnline.

The video below shows an offline mobile ArcGIS application which allows both querying of shapefile feature attributes, and the editing of these attributes:
We would love your feedback on GeoMobile for ArcGIS, and our online/offline mobile ArcGIS work. Contact [email protected]
