Hi there,

Is it possible to share tile package (*.tpk) across multiple apps on a device?

Thanks,

You can either attach .tpk to your apps main bundle or access it through shared documents folder. If you know any location where multiple apps has access to .tpk path then try.

Hi Nimesh,

Thanks for your reply. Sorry my original question is a little bit confusing. Please let me make it clearer...

The apps are all offline and have no access to any shared tpk in the Internet/network. I would like to know if there is a common location on the device where I can place my tpk and all my apps can access it while offline... At the moment I put my TPKs in the Documents folder of my app1. Because they are in the app1's Documents folder they are only accessible to the app1. My app2 requires the same set of TPKs. I don't really want to put a copy of the same set in the app2's Documents folder because of the tpk sizes and the storage capacity limitation of the devices... Can tpks on devices be shared while apps are offline?

Thanks,

Shimin
