I'm wondering if anyone has successfully installed the Collector app on a Surface Pro using an Android emulator? I've installed an emulator called Blue Stacks but when I try installing Collector I get the error "Your device isn't compatible with this version". Our organization will have a combination of Mac, Android, and Windows devices and I'd like to have a Collector strategy that allows us to use any of the three.
As a personal research project, I have successfully used Collector app on a Samsung Slate 7 using the same Android emulator Blue Stacks while I see some screen blinking on confirming or acknowledging dialogs.
Based on my experience with Android emulator, the message "Your device isn't compatible with this version" can be due to Open GL ES 2.0 support. You can go to Google Play store, search for an app called �??OpenGL Extensions Viewer�?� by Realtech VR, it�??s free and use this app to check OpenGL requirements. After you install the app, open that app, find the value for �??Version�?�, it would say something like OpenGL ES 2.0. If not, that could be Surface Pro or Android emulator issue.
As a side note, we don't officially support it. Hopefully my personal research note will help you a bit.
Anyone else try Android emulator on a Win 8.1 Lenovo ThinkPad2? BlueStacks works, I can install Collector but when I click on a map to open it, Collector crashes. The OpenGL tester mentioned above also crashes so I suspect that the Thinkpad's graphics card is not up to the task even though I can use ArcGIS Mobile for Windows on the device just fine other than the issue with GPS not working as expected.
