I have created an app, registered it and now I would like to be able to view my app on my mobile device but I am not sure what the next step is. If you could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
Hi Melisa, if you have installed Collector on your device you should be able to log into ArcGIS Online through the device and view the web map. One caveat is that Collector can only see web maps which have editable content, you have to assign at least one layer in the map as editable. If you want to only view maps on your mobile device and not edit try installing ArcGIS Explorer, same look and feel just no editing. Hope this helps. Also consider tagging your post with Mobile, Collector, ArcGIS Online, and other relevant search criteria, it will help other users find and respond to your question.
Thanks for your advice to use collector. The problem I am having is I like the way my map looks on arcgis.com and I would like it to look the same way on my device and collect data but I am having trouble finding the right solution. Collector works but my pop ups don't look the same. and using the arcgis app doesn't help either. I was thinking maybe to try to create a stand alone app as an option? Do you have any experience with that? thanks again for all of your recommendations.
Yeah, I see your issue now. With Collector you are not going to get exactly the look as ArcGIS Online (AGOL), in particular Collector does not currently support labeling (among other things). Though, with the pop ups I haven't seen major differences between AGOL and Collector. If I recall correctly the configurations applied to the pop ups on AGOL (alias, stacking, formatting etc.) should carry across to Collector. The only major difference is the pop up will take up the entire screen on the mobile device. However, I haven't paid to close attention to the details so I could have missed some differences that were worth noting. As far as stand alone mobile apps go, I'm not a developer and don't have end use experience with any custom mobile apps. I'm almost certain if you go the custom route you will have a better product more aligned to your collection workflows but I imagine it will be a more timely and costly route. You may want to post a discussion about developing a custom app in the Mobile GIS place and see what kind of response you get from the community. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with and if not good luck!
Thanks for your advice!
