    This may be intractable given the plethora of mobile devices, but I would like to be able to fix the map scale in ESRI's mobile ArcGIS app.   Then, for example I would be able to use an iPad as a 1:24,000 scale map with a template (such as a clear plastic Westcott G2 UTM grid reader) placed directly on the tablet's screen.
