Collector for ArcGIS 10.2.3 update released!

On April 29th, 2014 the Collector for ArcGIS app has been updated to version 10.2.3 in both the iTunes App Store as well as Google Play.

This is a minor update that targets key fixes to both connected and disconnected workflows. Most notable for Portal for ArcGIS users is that credentials (along with the Portal URL) are maintained when you shutdown the app on your iPad or iPhone.

We have started work on our summer release and we are planning new and exciting things for Collector based upon your feedback! Check out the Sneak Peek section of our doc page and email our dev team with your ideas!
