We are happy to announce the phased roll out of Collector for ArcGIS v10.2.2! Android users will start seeing updates available over the next few days and early next week it will be available to all users on both iOS and Android platforms.
This release introduces support for downloading maps to smartphone and tablet devices so that you can collect and update GIS features in the field where there is no data connection and then synchronize changes when connected.
You will need to update your maps to make them available for download. Maps with editable, sync-enabled feature services plus Esri basemaps need only be opened and saved. Note that there is a new “Offline Mode” option in the item details for your web map. If it is not turned on, your map will not be available for download. For all the details, please check out our doc site.
