We are excited to share with you that ArcGIS Earth mobile version 1.4 is now available in App Store and Google Play Android users can also download and create the .apk file from the ArcGIS Earth Resources page on your PC. 

In this major update, we are focusing on improving design for an easier data viewing and content browsing experience and for the enhanced sharing and collaboration capability.

Enhancements

  • Search history in Add data from portal is now saved and can be easily retrieved.
