Now that the Aurora version of Collector is available for iOS and Android (beta) is there a timeline for the Windows' version?
Development is suppose to start in the second half of 2019 - Collector for ArcGIS - Releasing the Aurora Project. I have not seen anything yet for alpha or beta testing for Windows. Android is still in beta.
Our building inspectors are looking to get new devices soon, and I'd rather they get Surface tablets than iPad Pros. It would be good to know when the new version will be available on Windows so that we can decide which devices to purchase.
In the interim, you can currently use Collector for ArcGIS on windows devices, it just is the "Classic" version. You can download it from the Windows Store. I use both iPad Pro and a Windows Surface Pro. I definitely prefer the iPad for my daily field work.
Thanks. We're not interested in using Collector Classic. We'd prefer using a Surface device, or a rugged Windows 10 laptop/tablet to have full Windows functionality for using enterprise apps in addition to doing field work. Our inspectors would like a larger screen than the standard iPad 10", so we're looking into the 12.9" iPad Pro, which is $1,299. That's a lot of money to sink on a tablet.
